The Second Coming of Pearl Jam

Brian Hiatt of Rolling Stone magazine recently spent a few days with Pearl Jam to talk about their latest album, largely hailed as their best work since Vitalogy. The result was this article, which is a must read for all fans of Pearl Jam and music historians generally. In it, Eddie Vedder discusses the stalker whose attempt on his life provided the inspiration to No Code's 'Lukin'. He reveals the real truth behind how the band arrived at the name 'Pearl Jam', and tells us of how he and Kurt Cobain reconciled their differences, albeit temporarily, as they slow danced underneath the stage at the 1992 MTV Music Awards as Eric Clapton played 'Tears In Heaven.'
