Pearl Jam invites snubbed members to the ceremony

Pearl Jam invites snubbed members to the ceremony

Not in Hall of Fame
We thought it had been too long since there had been some news regarding the upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony.

From a note on the Pearl Jam official Twitter page, the band had the following to say:

“While awards and accolades are understandably subjective and a countless number of our peers have yet to be honored, we do feel fortunate to be recognized and provided the opportunity to reunite with everyone who has been part of the group. Specifically the drummers who left their distinctive mark on our band in the pre-Matt Cameron years. Dave Krusen, Matt Chamberlain, Dave Abbruzzese, and Jack Irons are each individually great players who gave their all to the early recordings and live gigs. Looking forward to seeing them and all the other musicians on the bill.”


Regular visitors here and those who have been following the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame know that Abbruzzese in particular has been very vocal about his exclusion from the Hall.

This does not make it clear if those who were not chosen by the powers that be in Cleveland will be in attendance. 

It is also worth noting that this overture by Eddie Vedder and company does not mean that the inductees on behalf of Pearl Jam will be changing.  It will still be the same core group that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame had originally mentioned.

We don’t think this story is over, and we are looking forward to see what happens next!
