Part 2 is finally here! This is one Pearl Jam fan’s blueprint to chasing the dragon of musical passion. Falling in love. Catching tambourines. Traveling thousands of miles for shows, many times over, for 2-3 hours of heart-soaring release, catharsis and rejuvenation. Album releases. Show adventures. Riding the rail at Pj20, Temple of The Dog, countless festivals and beyond.
Here’s the second half of a two-episode run on the journey of a lifelong Pearl Jam fan, from the ‘90s teenage obsessions through today’s seasoned adoration. This is part two of the saga, a continuation from part one on episode 47. These are the stories, songs, observations and other weird wanderings about a band whose music has soundtracked every shifting frequency of my own life.
This picks up where part one left off, in late 2003 – the halfway point (so far) on nearly three decades of adventures with Pearl Jam.
