Did You Know?


The original painting of a man wearing a cap nailed to a cross (the head of the cross says, "K.O.P.") that appears as a graphic in the liner notes to Vs. is shown hung up in the rehearsal space near the beginning. See more »


Eddie Vedder: Stone wrote a real pretty great melody... listen to it all the time... didn't know what to do with it... people keep saying, 'Do you have one for this? Do you have something for that'... Yeah... just workin' on it
Stone Gossard: I had recorded that riff on my little microcassette recorder... that was probably the first one I went, 'This is one I really want to concentrate on' and try to get the band to fall in love with and keep playing every time there was a rehearsal... just kind of 'What'd think?'

great but too short
17 May 2004 | by (Lodz,Poland) – See all my reviews

this is a great video.but it hurts that it's so short, because I can't get enough of pearl jam:) anyways I would make it a bit differently: I would divide every song as one chapter with comments from the bands on how it was recording it, how it was written etc.I think that there should be some extras.but we can't complain because it's a great insight on how great musicians work and how masterpieces are created.It also shows that they are as usual people as anyone of us:they argue, they are bored, laugh and prank each I watched I noticed that the atmosphere in their studio was similar as when I record with my band:) it's a must have for any PJ fan but also for a any music fan.If you want to see the magic of creating music
