|Wednesday 01.21.2015 Pearl Jam: what are they doing? + Mad Season reunion|
PJ Update ~ After ending their long Lightning Bolt tour last October (bootlegs are all available in the Shop at Pearljam.com), Pearl Jam are taking a well-deserved break. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Jeff Ament said: "We went pretty hard this last year, so I think everyone is ready to take a break and just wash the dishes and change some diapers [...] The time off is good. I can't think of a time in the last 10 years where I wasn't like 'I can't wait to see the guys' after we've been away from it a couple months. We don't necessarily stay in super-close contact when we're away from each other. When you get back together you're genuinely excited to find out 'Hey, how are things going with your kids?' or 'Let's hear your new songs.' All that stuff. That's as much of a part of it as anything. The lifelong friendship part of it is more important to me than the legacy of the band at this point".

| Bridge School Benefit 2014 ~ At the end of the US fall tour that kicks off tomorrow - as usual, you can follow it in our constantly updated On The Road section - Pearl Jam will be among the guests at the 28th Annual Bridge School Benefit, to be held on October 25 and 26, 2014 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California (click the left image to check out the complete bill). This is Pearl Jam's 9th participation in the acoustic benefit patronized by 'Uncle' Neil Young, but it will also be the first time - since the summer of 1993 - that Pearl Jam and Soundgarden will be performing on the same bill... Temple of The Dog reunion in sight?
