Nirvana legend Krist Novoselic has entered into the controversy over Eddie Vedder’s perceived “anti-Israel diatribe” at the Milton Keynes Bowl in July.
I already posted extensively on this subject, having been at that show, the last of Pearl Jam’s 2014 European tour. Now Novoselic, a friend of Vedder’s, has written in support of the Pearl Jam frontman’s position in his excellent blog This Is Krist Novoselic.
“Thank you Eddie Vedder for speaking up for peace in our world,” the former Nirvana and Sweet 75 bassist said in an article that further explores the highly divisive and toxic Israel/Palestine issue, further saying that “it is the knuckleheads on both sides that should be criticized and not the singer from a rock band.” (more…)

There’s something I’ve been meaning to mention for a few weeks now, something I feel quite strongly about. Specifically Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam having caused “controversy” after their appearance at the Milton Keynes Bowl in England last month, due to a perceived “anti-Israel diatribe”.
It was a great show, by the way; 3 hours of absolute Pearl Jam, with Footsteps, Go, Given To Fly, Hail Hail, Do The Evolution, Rearviewmirror, Jeremy, Alive, even Crown of Thorns and generally the kind of set-list inclusions that you’d dream of.

Noticing that yesterday marked twenty years to the day of the release of Pearl Jam’s Dissident single, I decided to write a post highlighting my favorite 10 Pearl Jam singles over the years; then about a paragraph into doing that I realised it would actually be more interesting to talk about tracks that never were singles but so easily could’ve been.

On 5th April it will be precisely 20 years since Kurt Cobain died. Aside from making me feel like I’m awake a few years passed my bedtime, it also prompts me to look back at that sensitive point in time, remembering what it was like, while also looking at Cobain’s legacy across the two decades that have unbelievably now elapsed.
This is a fan-centric post by someone who’s never quite gotten over that body being found in that bleak garage in Seattle…

Pearl Jam‘s first album in four years is reason to be curious and (guardedly) excited.
There are definitely good omens in the air; the Dead Kennedy’s-inspired (according to Mike McCready) ‘Mind Your Manners‘, released in July as the album’s lead single, has whetted the apetite (along with its very cool video; Pearl Jam really do make some damn cool videos, especially for a band that generally doesn’t do videos – ‘Jeremy‘ and ‘Do The Evolution‘ remain two of the best music videos I’ve ever seen), boding well for the broader album to follow.
