Using rarely-seen and never before-seen footage of Pearl Jam from their career, filmmaker Cameron Crowe (Say Anything, Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous) has written, directed and produced Pearl Jam Twenty, part concert film, part intimate portrait to mark the 20th Anniversary of the band’s album, Ten.
Featuring Eddie Vedder, Chris Cornell, Layne Staley, Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, Mike McCready, Jack Irons, Matt Cameron, Dave Abbruzzese, PJ20 will be shown in theaters just one night, September 20, 2011.
In a scene from the movie, the band discusses how they came up with the name Pearl Jam, and what it was before they changed it:Vodpod videos no longer available.
