Not For You: Pearl Jam and the Present Tense Preview

For everyone getting ready for the new book to come out, we talked to the author, Ronen Givony, about it. We get pretty entangled in what the book is about but there are three main factors to listen for - answering the question of “why” the band’s history happened the way it did, connecting the timeline of the band with the current events of our country, and the continued attempt to digest the band’s struggle with fame.

I suggest everyone go pre-order this book, but we’ll be giving away two copies of this through various ways starting tomorrow. Follow our Twitter @liveon4legspod for more details

    Haven't started yet, but not encouraged by the comments here. PJ20 is about as definitive as it gets, the rest I think is conjecture.

    Don't waste your money absolute garbage written by a fan with way to many options & the most ridiculous one that Given to Fly is compared to a Celine Dion song

    That should be opinions

    I'm about halfway through.  Just at the Grammys 1996 Eddie speech
     On another note. I was thinking 
     Could pearl jam have made an album like  No Code if Dave A  hadn't been fired. 

    i wish i wish i wish i wish, i guess it never stops

    Maybe. I have no idea what Jack's influence was on the primary song writers or if the primary song writers were already headed towards No Code, and Jack simply played to the vibe. Dave could have hung with those songs. Guy had groove and drumming range (if that's even a thing). He didn't just bash the kit. Funk and feel.

    Opinion(s) based on incomplete information is conjecture. Assuming the author didn't have complete access to the band to form those opinions. Ah, well, words. You all know what I meant.

    there is another thread about this book but yes agree. i thought it sucked and got tired of the author putting down the songs and Ed's behavior pretty quickly.
