I love it when Pearl Jam reads my mind. Just yesterday it occured to me that there was a book of live Pearl Jam photographs (5×1, by Seattle photographer and long-time friend of the band Lance Mercer) that was supposed to come out this past Spring, but that I never heard a peep about it following the initial announcement. I went trolling the web to no avail.
Then just today I was alerted that the book is now (finally) available. It’s 180 pages of concert and tour photos, like the Place/Date book (1998) which I own and love to leaf through. The price is a bit steep ($40!) but it’s got commentary from Pete Townshend, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Stipe, Gloria Steinem, Howard Zinn, Cameron Crowe, Kelly Slater and more, so I will more likely than not end up coughing up the dough to buy it.
I’m just a girl who can’t say no when it comes to Pearl Jam.
PearlJamOnline.it is a supercool Italian fansite with great downloads. Check out the rar/zip file of the best of the European 2006 tour. It’ll be on this page with the link that says “File zippato.” I love Italian.
And I’ve got two cool posts coming later today once EZArchive stops balking at doing its uploading duty. Same old, same old, I know. See you later.
