Twenty one years together. A Seattle band that came up during the grunge years and has lasted longer than almost all of them. Eddie Vedder (lead vocals/guitar), Matt Cameron (drums), Stone Gossard (guitar), Jeff Ament (bass), and Mike McCready (lead guitar) have been through times of immense success selling 60 million albums without ever bending to industry norms. They refused to make videos and ditched Ticketmaster. Pearl Jam is a band that is all about the music and not about the fame.
Their music was moody, organic and introspective. Influenced by the likes of Neil Young (grandfather of grunge), The Who and The Ramones, they are the perfect mix of punk and hard rock. Vedder is the perfect front man for the band in that he is passionate and real. Live on stage they give everything and play each show like it is their last. Over their two decade career they have toured pretty much incessantly. Gaining a legion of devoted fans that have been dubbed “Jamily”.
The most popular American rock band of the 1990s, Pearl Jam has exerted much influence over younger bands. Kings of Leon, Seether, Staind, Strokes, and John Mayer have all listed the band as an influence.
