Charles Peterson & Lance MercerPearl Jam: Place / Date
Having sold over thirty million albums since their triumphant debut with "TEN," Pearl Jam brought the hard-edged, alienated, and angst-ridden sound of Seattle to the forefront of popular culture, pioneering the musical movement of grunge. Imitators followed, and the band could have sold out to the culture of celebrity, but Eddie Vedder and the members of Pearl Jam took on the establishment. They challenged control over concert venues and ticket prices, and refused the media any access to the band-even through music videos-during the peak of the band's success.
Pearl Jam's approach has intensified the loyalty of its fans and has refocused their attention on their musical center. Despite the lack of advertising and recent shifts in musical trends, Pearl Jam concerts continue to sell out within hours to the hundreds of thousands of fans who are devoted to this rare group that continues to uphold its musical and political integrity.
