Pearl Jam: Place/Date

Overview

The first official book done in association with the media-shy band that redefined the musical sound of the 1990s, Pearl Jam: Place/Date captures the raw intensity, behind-the-scenes comraderie, and devoted fan phenomenon of today's most unconventional supergroup. Having sold over 30 million albums since its triumphant 1991 debut 10, Pearl Jam brought the hard-edged, estranged and oftentimes angry sound of Seattle to the musical forefront. They pioneered a movement in music and culture that quickly became known ...

Overview

The first official book done in association with the media-shy band that redefined the musical sound of the 1990s, Pearl Jam: Place/Date captures the raw intensity, behind-the-scenes comraderie, and devoted fan phenomenon of today's most unconventional supergroup. Having sold over 30 million albums since its triumphant 1991 debut 10, Pearl Jam brought the hard-edged, estranged and oftentimes angry sound of Seattle to the musical forefront. They pioneered a movement in music and culture that quickly became known as grunge. Imitators followed, and the band could have quickly lost touch with its fans and unpretentious ideals and become simply a money-making celebrity group. Instead, Eddie Vedder and the members of Pearl Jam took on the establishment: challenging Ticketmaster's control over concert venues and ticket prices and refusing media any access to the band--even through music videos--during the peak of their success. Pearl Jam's disappearance from media and from traditional touring has intensified the loyalty of its fans and has refocused the band's attention on its original musical center. Despite the lack of advertising and recent shifts in musical trends, Pearl Jam concerts repeatedly sell out within hours for the hundreds of thousands who remain devoted to a group that continues to uphold its musical and political integrity. Allowed access to the concerts, jam sessions, and private moments of Pearl Jam's members, photographers Charles Peterson and Lance Mercer provide a heretofore unseen record of the Pearl Jam experience for new and diehard fans alike.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Pearl Jam has shown more staying power than most of the Seattle bands who were all the rage some years back. Nirvana is long gone, Soundgarden is no more, but Eddie Vedder and company just keep rolling on. Perhaps their relative longevity is due to the band's concerted effort to break the rules of rock stardom.

They refused to release a single or create a video to promote their second album, "Vs." (it still reached the No. 1 spot on the charts). They canceled a tour in 1994 because, they claimed, Ticketmaster was pressuring promoters to charge too high a price for admission and the band was intent upon keeping ticket prices under $20. The band even took Ticketmaster to court, charging them with unfair business practices.

This refusal to play by the rules -- or to rest on their musical laurels -- has fostered an extreme sense of loyalty on the part of the band's audience. A new Pearl Jam record may not debut at the top of the charts anymore, but the band's core audience is as fervently devoted as ever.

Pearl Jam: Place/Date is the first authorized book to be produced with the full cooperation of the band. Photographers Charles Peterson and Lance Mercer were granted unlimited access as they followed the band from concerts to jam sessions to hotel rooms to tour buses, in the process capturing the essence of the band's life on the road.

Pearl Jam: Place/Date was originally made available only to members of Pearl Jam's fan club, but it was so well received that it now is available to the general public. Pearl Jam: Place/Date is an entertainingbehind-the-scenes look at life on the rock-'n'-roll highway.
