Pearl Jam Twenty is a new book compiled by Jonathan Cohen and Mark Wilkerson telling the day to day history of Pearl Jam, starting with the individual members early histories and going all the way through 2010. The book is broken up into a chapter for each year from 1990-2010 with special chapters focusing on each album’s recording. Along with these there’s also chapters about Into The Wild, the Roskilde tragedy, Mirror Ball, and Temple of the Dog. The book is filled with tons of photos and things like early lyric drafts and setlists (even an ATM receipt showing Eddie Vedder’s bank account balance pre-Pearl Jam). Pearl Jam is a band notorious for keeping to themselves and this is them finally releasing 20 years worth of their history as they saw it, along with many others such as Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Chris Cornell, Dave Grohl, and many more people involved with the band in some way.
