    If Pearl Jam was making decent $$$ off albums they'd still be doing an Album every 3 years.  In no way are they irrelevant, it's just different times where some bands do not feel the effort going into making new music is worth it.  Time will tell.  I wouldn't panic.  I believe they all got young families, so they are trying to be there for their children as well.  It would not surprise that they become more active in their 60's
    The families aren't all that young...Matt's son is in his 20s. Plus the families tour with them every time. And they can record in Seattle. It's not like they are the first musicians to have offspring...Neil young had 3 young children in the 80s, 2 with special needs, and all he managed to get out was [checks notes]...9 albums (plus several others that were never released) 2 films, develop a new way for special needs kids to use electronic model trains, start bridge school, and tour every year
    I was thinking of Neil as well.  My father had three kids and he kept working 5 days a week.  But he wasn't fabulously famous and wealthy.  Being a bit hungry is not a bad thing.

    Maybe Neils kids would have wanted him home more often. 

    Comparing how a dad did in in the 80s and in the 10s.... I mean, there's a world of difference then to now. And also, everyone is different. Being able to stay home with your kids, surfing and beating records in Pac-Man if you find that more fulfilling than forcing out music - then why not?
