Which Pearl Jam Books should you have?

There are many books out there about Pearl Jam, some official from the band and others not so official. But which are the ones worth owning? Here’s a list of essential books for a Pearl Jam fan.

Pearl Jam Twenty



The book that accompanies the Cameron Crowe movie, PJ20, covers pretty much the band’s entire history. It is the most complete info you could find on Pearl Jam in one location and thus makes it a must have for any fan.

From a Basement in Seattle: The Poster Art of Brad Klausen



Perhaps the Ames Bros book is more complete in terms of specifically Pearl Jam content, but the book to get is the one from Brad Klausen. His designs are consistently popular with fans and he adds a great dynamic to the concert poster artwork that are must haves for Pearl Jam shows. This book showcases Klausen’s work throughout the years and will look great on your bookshelf.

There have been many photographic books by Pearl Jam photographers including Pearl Jam: Place/Date and 5 x 1 Pearl Jam Through the Eye of Lance Mercer. But the one that stands out the most is Danny Clinch’s Still Moving.

10 Years Ago

touringvangorge

Ten years ago today, September 1, 2005, Pearl Jam played that epic show at the Gorge Amphitheater. It marked the beginning of the journey we took on the Touring Van. A journey that was life changing for many of us. What a great ride it has been and continues to be. So many good memories, friendships, and the stories. Happy 10 years.

10 years of Wishlist Preparties

The Wishlist Foundation celebrated their 10 year anniversary of their very first Pearl Jam fundraiser preparty in St Louis on Oct 3, 2014. Their very first preparty was a canned food drive, ironically, also in St Louis for Pearl Jam’s Vote for Change tour in 2004. This grassroots fan-run nonprofit officially became a foundation 2 years later and, over the past decade, have raised over $800,000 for Pearl Jam inspired charities across the country.

This alone is an outstanding accomplishment by any organization, but the fact that Wishlist has no staff and runs 100% on volunteers is what sets this apart from any other nonprofit. Congratulations on the first 10 years Wishlist.

Check out the Wishlist video created by Infinitum Films.

Touring Van 2013 Film

A few months back, we put on an Indiegogo campaign to create a new Touring Van video. You responded with your support and made it a huge success.

So we put the van back on the road, picked up a crew of friends (old and new) and brought the Touring Van out for the Vancouver and Seattle Pearl Jam shows in December. The result is the Touring Van 2013 film below.

Thank you to all the contributors from the Indiegogo campaign and everyone that helped make Touring Van 2013 happen.
