Quotes

24.01.2011 The band has been working with Cameron Crowe on his "Pearl Jam Twenty" documentary. Jeff Ament saw a rough cut and defined it “Cameron’s love letter to us – but it’s equal parts complimentary and really painful." The movie also chronicles the Rosklide tragedy. "It was just really hard to watch,” said Ament.

30.01.2011 Cameron Crowe told the New York Post: “They became good friends of mine, and about 10 years ago we started talking about a project that would use all the archival stuff the band had never shown to the public. The time finally came to tell that story. Jeff Ament, the bassist and creative architect of the band in many ways, said to me, ‘I’m expecting to learn things about our little band that I never knew. I hope it’s a little bit like group therapy.’ ”
