see Mel, people are listening - and thanks to you the story is still out there
Ed mentioning this during the show is proof of that
it's such a sad situation, I can't imagine what his friends and family are going through
His father was at the Cincinnati concert in section 229 row k on the right side of the row
I was in section 230 row k at the left side of the row with the aisle in between us. My mother went and got him and the people with him some drinks and we shook his hand and wished him the best of luck. They cried heavily all during Wishlist and left shortly thereafter.

BRIAN AND PEARL JAM
As said above, Brian is a 10 Club member. He was planning on taking his girlfriend, Alexis, who he planned on marrying to the show in Detroit. Unfortunately, Brian disappeared before the show and Alexis ended up auctioning the seats off, with the money going to the reward fund. I don't know what the final bid was, but apparently they were pretty good seats.
His dad, Randy, is very impressed by the amount of help the 10 Club and the Pearl Jam community has given. He is going to try to travel to the Cincinnati show. (Edit June 28th) -- Randy did in fact go to the Cincinnati show, where Ed even mentioned the situation. Randy left shortly after Wishlist was played. Go here and beyond for various accounts of the show. You can click the thread title on the top right of the screen to jump to that part in the thread.
I'll be at the Portland and Gorge shows with some buttons that Brian's father had made up. If anyone would like one please shoot me a PM
Just trying to keep people aware that he's missing. Don't wanna let anyone forget
You met his father?? That's great! I am very bummed out that I couldn't find him. :(
I'd love to have one of those buttons when things settle down for you!
I'm wearing the missing t-shirt right now...I've been wearing it a lot. It's worn out...but I ordered another one to keep in the future. But I hope I WON'T need it!
I like Lost In Ohio's idea...I would love a reunion with Brian and Alexis at a show - that would be awesome!!!!
I hope people are still continuing making flyers for pre-parties!
I wish I was a messenger...that brought good news.
Any updates? Is everything still the same?
yeah i havent read this thread in awhile and i just looked at this myspace page and it doesnt look like anything new has turned up
this is terrible and i wish his family and friends the best
its hard for me to comprehend how someone can just disappear without a trace.....
i know.. i showed some women here in kansas city i know and then one from des moines and both of them swear theyve seen him somewhere..but not recently so im thinking they just maybe saw a look alike,cuz when i go to the sites of his,i feel that i have seen him before,too.
Yes, I met Randy and his family before and after the show. They're really nice people. I wish there was something else I could do for them but I don't even know where to begin. Mel- I'll send you a button. Just email or PM your addy and I'll get one out to you.
anyone else who wants one can either meet up w/me at the Portland or Gorge show or PM me their addy and I'll send you one.
I'll be at the Gorge for night 2, but I have no idea how easy it will be to meet up. I'm gonna PM you my address. That way, I'll be sure. Thanks.
