  Pearl Jam - booking information

Pearl Jam rose from the ashes of Mother Love Bone to become the most popular American rock & roll band of the '90s.

  Pearl Jam - booking information  After vocalist Andrew Wood overdosed on heroin in 1990, guitarist Stone Gossard and bassist Jeff Ament assembled a new band, bringing in Mike McCready on lead guitar and recording a demo with Soundgarden's Matt Cameron on drums. Thanks to future Pearl Jam drummer Jack Irons, the demo found its way to a 25-year-old San Diego surfer named Eddie Vedder, who overdubbed vocals and original lyrics and was subsequently invited to join the band (then christened Mookie Blaylock after the NBA player). Dave Krusen was hired as the full-time drummer shortly thereafter, completing the original lineup.

Renaming themselves Pearl Jam, the band recorded their debut album, "Ten," in the beginning of 1991, although it wasn't released until August; in the meantime, the majority of the band appeared on the Andrew Wood tribute project Temple of the Dog. Krusen left the band shortly after the release of "Ten"; he was replaced by Dave Abbruzzese.

"Ten" didn't begin selling in significant numbers until early 1992, after Nirvana made mainstream rock radio receptive to alternative rock acts. Soon, Pearl Jam outsold Nirvana, which wasn't surprising — Pearl Jam fused the riff-heavy stadium rock of the '70s with the grit and anger of '80s post-punk, without ever neglecting hooks and choruses; "Jeremy," "Even Flow," and "Alive" fit perfectly onto album rock radio stations looking for new blood.

Pearl Jam's audience continued to grow during 1992, thanks to a series of radio and MTV hits, as well as successful appearances on the second Lollapalooza tour and the Singles soundtrack (Stone Gossard also embarked on a side project called Brad, which released the album "Shame" in early 1993).

Despite their status as rock & roll superstars, the band refused to succumb to the accepted conventions of the music industry. The group refused to release any videos or singles from their second album, 1993's "Vs." Nevertheless, it was another multi-platinum success, debuting at number one and selling nearly a million copies in its first week of release. On their spring 1994 American tour, the band decided not to play the conventional stadiums, choosing to play smaller arenas, including several shows on college campuses. Pearl Jam canceled their 1994 summer tour, claiming they could not keep ticket prices below 20 dollars because Ticketmaster was pressuring promoters to charge a higher price. The band took Ticketmaster to the Justice Department for unfair business practices; while fighting Ticketmaster, they recorded a new album during the spring and summer of 1994. After the record was completed, the group fired Dave Abbruzzese, replacing him with former Red Hot Chili Peppers and Eleven drummer, Jack Irons.

"Vitalogy," the band's third album, appeared at the end of 1994. For the first two weeks, the album was only available as a limited vinyl release, but the record charted in the Top 60. Once "Vitalogy" was available on CD and cassette, the album shot to the top of the charts and quickly went multi-platinum.

In early 1995, the band recorded an album with Neil Young. Meanwhile, Vedder toured with his wife Beth's experimental band Hovercraft in the spring of 1994 as Stone Gossard founded an independent record company; Mad Season, Mike McCready's side project with Layne Staley of Alice in Chains, released their first album, "Above," in the spring of 1995. Pearl Jam released a single culled from the sessions, titled "Merkinball" and featuring the songs "I Got Id" and "Long Road," in the fall of 1995.

In late summer of 1996, Pearl Jam released their fourth album, "No Code." The album was greeted with fairly positive reviews and debuted at number one.

The band spent most of 1997 out of the spotlight, working on new material; Gossard also released a second album with his side project Brad, titled "Interiors." By the end of the year, Pearl Jam had completed a new, harder-rocking record entitled "Yield." The album was greeted with enthusiastic reviews upon its February 1998 release, but its commercial fortunes weren't quite as clear cut. Pearl Jam supported the record with a full-scale arena tour in the summer of 1998, issuing the concert LP "Live on Two Legs" at the end of the year; Jack Irons did not participate due to poor health, and was replaced by ex-Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron.

The group returned in 2000 with the Tchad Blake-produced "Binaural." In order to circumvent bootleggers, their subsequent European and American tours were recorded in full and released in an unprecedented series of double-CD sets, each of the 72 volumes featuring a complete concert. 2002 saw the release of "Riot Act," a muscular - and critically lauded - collection of new songs that found the group dabbling in experimental art rock. Two anthologies arrived in 2003 and 2004, "Lost Dogs: Rarities and B Sides" and "Rearview Mirror: Greatest Hits 1991-2003." They were followed in 2006 by the eponymous (and all-new) "Pearl Jam," a number two hit on the album charts. -- Stephen Thomas Erlewine
