Cameron Crowe Brings Pearl Jam 20 Documentary


It has been 20 years since Pearl Jam broke into the music scene as one of the most influential bands in what was then called the grunge movement. The band has outlasted most of their contemporaries that started the alternative music scene such as the late Kurt Cobain’s Nirvana, Chris Cornell’s Soundgarden and Alice in Chains in the early 1990s.

Marking their 20th anniversary this year, Academy Award winning writer and director Cameron Crowe is directing a Pearl Jam 20 documentary. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival on Saturday. Crowe has more than enough material to make use of, being a certified Pearl Jam fan and a known member of the band’s so-called inner circle.

In the 1990s grunge film “Singles”, Crowe cast the band members when they were still known by a different name- Mookie Blaylock, a name inspired by a former NBA player.

Pearl Jam 20 chronicles not only the first two decades of the band but it also shows the years leading up to the formation of the band from their point of view. The documentary film is showing for one night only on September 20th. Cameron Crowe fans and music enthusiasts will surely find this an interesting piece.
