Eddie Vedder dedicates a performance to Kurt Cobain and the date is given as "April 8th, 1994 - The Day Kurt Died". This may appear as a goof, as in some places it is mentioned that Kurt Cobain died on April 5th 1994.
Both dates are relevant: April 8th is the day Kurt Cobain was discovered dead. The coroner established that he had died on April 5th. See more »
Pearl Jam is a great band, this movie covers a lot but somewhat disappointing. after the recent masterpiece documentary on the doors and the really good one about the foo fighters this one was kind of boring. the drummer switching which is interesting to fans was referred to in a short sequence without getting into it unlike the member changes in foo fighters who were really brave to bring them to interview in this one u felt like they wanted to ignore it, like they did something bad. also the movie was non linear and gave the viewer no sense of the time everything was happening and why for example the tour with Neil Young why pearl jam wasn't touring with Eddie Vedder. also in the Mike McCready sequence i was hoping for a mention of Mad Season the project he did with the late Lane Staley from Alice in Chains and a bit more of him in the movie like the Kurt Cobain mention. overall this could have been much better instead its an assembly of random stuff from the 20 year career of pearl jam which is nice but not as interesting as it should have been with hardly any conflicts were put on the table maybe that was needed so they can go on for another 10 years.
