Pearl Jam Twenty – mit Bruce Springsteen

Im Herbst 2011 feiert Pearl Jam ihr 20jähriges Bestehen. Der amerikanische Drehbuchautor und Regisseur Cameron Crowe (“Jerry Maguire”, “Almost Famous” und “Elizabethtown”) hat den Geburtstag zum Anlass genommen, eine Dokumentation über Eddie Vedder und Co. zu produzieren.
Ausserdem wird zeitgleich ein Buch mit dem Titel “Pearl Jam Twenty” erscheinen. Unter anderem werden Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young und Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Queen of the Stone Age und Foo Fighters) Interviews zur Bandchronik beitragen.

Das Buch “Twenty” erscheint am 13. September 2011 in Deutschland und kann bereits auf Amazon.de vorbestellt werden.

In addition to Pearl Jam’s Alpine Valley Labor Day Anniversary Concert + Canadian tour, the band will release a Cameron Crowe-directed film, Pearl Jam Twenty, which captures the band’s journey over its twenty years, along with an accompanying book and soundtrack album this fall. Details on each follow.

PEARL JAM TWENTY FILM BY CAMERON CROWE
Carved from over 1,200 hours of rarely and never-before-seen footage, plus 24 hours of recently shot interview and live footage, Pearl Jam Twenty is the definitive portrait of Pearl Jam as told by award-winning director and music journalist, Cameron Crowe.

PEARL JAM TWENTYSOUNDTRACK
Columbia Records/Sony Music will release the Pearl Jam Twenty soundtrack in conjunction with the film’s theatrical release. Cameron Crowe selected the track listing for the soundtrack — making the album a true companion piece to the film.

PEARL JAM TWENTYBOOK
Published by Simon & Schuster in the U.S. and Canada and Atlantic Books in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, the Pearl Jam Twentybook is an aesthetically stunning, definitive chronicle of the band’s past two decades. The book was compiled and written by veteran music journalist and current “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” music booker, Jonathan Cohen, with Mark Wilkerson (author of “Who Are You: The Life of Pete Townshend”), designed by Pearl Jam in-house designer Regan Hagar (also the drummer for Brad and Satchel), with a foreword by Cameron Crowe. – Quelle

Published in celebration of Pearl Jam’s twentieth anniversary and in conjunction with Cameron Crowe’s definitive documentary film and soundtrack of the same name, PEARL JAM TWENTY is an aesthetically stunning and definitive chronicle of their two decades as a band—by the band itself.
In 1991, Pearl Jam’s debut album, Ten catapulted the little-known Seattle-based band into superstardom. Then, at the height of their popularity, the band shunned the spotlight, refusing to shoot videos or do interviews. Even as Pearl Jam’s studio albums continued to be critically acclaimed and commercially successful, selling over 60 million albums worldwide, the inner workings of the band—their day-to-day routines, influences, and motivations—remained unknown even to their diehard fans.
Twenty years later, this is their story. PEARL JAM TWENTY is a treasure trove of behind-the-scenes anecdotes, rare archival memorabilia, and the band’s personal photos, tour notes, and drawings. Told with wit and insight in the band members’ own words, and assembled by veteran music writer Jonathan Cohen with Mark Wilkerson—and including a foreword by Cameron Crowe along with original interviews with legends and contemporaries like Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and Dave Grohl—this intimate work provides an in-depth look at a group of musicians who through defying convention established themselves as “the greatest American rock band ever” (USA Today Readers’ Poll 2005). – Quelle
