Do you think any of them read these forums? If you were a band member, would you come here?

    There is the story from Eddie in an interview about going onto the forum and private messaging a user correcting him/her on his/hers wrong interpretation of the State of Love and Trust lyrics.

    EDIT: Was suppose to quote @yield2me but whatever.

    I believe said person argued that Ed was wrong as well. I think that's how the story went.

    -edit- I'm sure they all, at times view these boards whether they admit to it or not. Well, maybe not Boom but the rest most likely do on occasion.

    I would never go out in public, on the internet or maybe even stay on earth if I was a band member, let alone come onto this forum.

    If I, as a member of Pearl Jam, saw the sense of entitlement amongst the people on this forum, I would be very disappointed in this fan base.

    I don’t think it would be very healthy to be a band member on this board.  A bunch of people posting (myself included) knowing about 10% of what we think we know.

    I could see the fellas randomly popping on. With all the request threads seems as though Ed is reading them/receiving them.

    I see people loving a band and wishing to see them play live again. Call it entitlement all you want but this forum for the most part loves these guys and can't wait for the new album to drop/tour to start.

    Maybe he dropped out when he didn't receive his paid for fan club singles.

    They may also recognize that these are the people that helped make them filthy rich.  Entitled, sure, but they also pay a lot of money for a service.  PJ is a monopoly but making things more convenient for the customer is nice too.

    I think Stone was active here but let his membership lapse when they quit with the holiday singles. Used that $40 to get some new coffee mugs.

    Woudn't surprise me if they do. I mean, this is their life. And with PJ in wind-down mode these last few years, they probably have more free time than most adults of working age.

    I don’t think they do often.  But I bet once in a blue moon they check things out.  I doubt they sit around and talk about it.  But sure, why not. Especially when they’re touring I bet they read some feedback.  

    Ed, Stone, Jeff, Mike and Matt - if you’re reading this, please come to houston.
