This was the live debut performance of the band 1,2,3, Go! Following Fuel’s set at the House of Blues in Park City, Utah on January 23rd, 2011, the members of 1,2,3,Go! -Stefan Lessard (bassist for Dave Matthews Band), Mike McCready (guitarist for Pearl Jam), Brett Scallions (Fuel’s lead singer), and Ken Schalk (Fuel’s drummer)- came on stage and performed a few cover songs together.
This performance was part of a party for the debut of Slasher Films, a new movie production company focused on horror films founded by Slash, the lead guitarist for Guns ‘n’ Roses.
Pearl Jam’s Live on Ten Legs debuted at #21 on the Billboard 200 in the United States according to FMQB.com. Actual sales numbers aren’t available, but my guess is 8-15,000 copies sold with the number its at.
According to Neilsen SoundScan numbers and TorontoSun.com, the album debuted at #2 in Canada with 4,200 copies sold.
The Screaming Trees final proper studio release, 1996’s Dust, is set to be reissued on February 28th through Music on Vinyl.
Dust featured “All I Know” which was a moderate hit on rock radio. The Trees recorded a rough cut of a follow up album which included “Ash Grey Sunday” in 1998/1999. That album never was properly released but it did leak online. The Screaming Trees broke up in 2000.
I have created a database of important events in the history of Pearl Jam. Gigs, releases, important meetings, sessions and so on. These events are being tweeted exactly (as close to the hour/minute as possible) on the 20 year anniversary of the event. Upcoming tweets include the Gigs on the Feb ’91 Tour with AIC.
These tweets will continue next year to display events from 1992, then 1993 and so on so followers get a real time renactment of the career of Pearl Jam. Each gig tweet will connect to a page on the website where YouTube videos form that gig will be listed if available. On the anniversary of each show, a page will be created to display as many videos from each gig as possible as well as other information. Ideally there will be one video of each song performed that night, but there will be gaps where fans have not uploaded material to YouTube. And example of this is http://pj20.net/1st
Pearl Jam Alive is a fan based PJ20 project I have created on the domain:
The site itself is a facebook connected social network with forum and messaging that allows members to add links from YouTube videos to an archive I am building of Pearl Jam videos. These videos are live videos from shows filmed by fans and currently being shared on YouTube. I am not looking to post official Pearl Jam video or film clips (or bootlegs from official releases) but fan created material that is already online in an effort to create on site where fans can find a huge archive of fan filmed videos and hopefully, multiple videos from the same gig. Members have the ability to post comments after each video in a similar way to YouTube.
The site displays all history tweets and give users an opportunity to blog their reviews of shows and event is they like.
On May 9th author Jacob McMurray will release Taking Punk to the Masses: From Nowhere to Nevermind. The foreword is written by former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic. Here is the description of the book from
A visual and oral history of the “Seattle Sound,” including an exclusive DVD.
Jacob McMurray is the Senior Curator of Seattle’s Experience Music Project.
I’m not sure if this supergroup was a one off thing or if they have plans to do more, here’s the story.
On Thursday night, Dave Matthews Band bassist Stefan Lessard offered this message via Twitter: “If you don’t know 1,2,3 GO! You will soon!” On Friday night Lessard took the stage with 1,2,3 GO! at the Sundance Film Festival for a party celebrating Win Win the new film by director Tom McCarthy ( The Visitor, The Station Agent ). 1,2,3 GO! consists of Lessard, Pearl Jam guitarist and Mike McCready along with two members of Fuel: vocalist Brett Scallions and drummer Ken Schalk. The quartet performed a seven song cover set, which opened with The Sex Pistols’ “Pretty Vacant” and also offered takes on “Revolution,” “Mother’s Little Helper,” “Blister in the Sun,” “I Wanna Be Sedated,” “Destroyer” and “Fire.”
Thanks to Ben, this was posted on PearlJam.com yesterday:
I first saw dUg Pinnick sing and play in 1989 with his band Kings X at the Central Tavern. Three years later, I asked them to open some shows for Pearl Jam and we quickly became friends. I always joked, “when are we gonna make that heavy R & B record, you and me?” In 2001, dUg joined Richard Stuverud and me in one of our yearly writing sessions in Montana and again in 2004 with McCready. After a few years of crossed up schedules, in 2010, we finally mixed the baker’s dozen songs that make up Tres Mts. These guys are all monsters and this batch of tunes is gonna be fun to play live.
Yesterday Stone Temple Pilots drummer Eric Kretz did a book signing, here is information that was up in promotion of the signing from sticksnskins.com:
Sticks’n’Skins will still be in the San Francisco area on January 24 and will have several featured drummers at a book signing at the Cal Student Store from 4:30 – 6:00pm. Eric Kretz (Stone Temple Pilots), Liberty DeVitto (Billy Joel, Ronnie Spector), Dom Famularo (Drumming’s Global Ambassador, BB King) and author/photographer Jules Follett. This is a must have book for any music lover and a great time to meet some of the artists.
It offers a glimpse of what is yet to come. With a joint LP with Mark Lanegan due next year, along with plans to work with the Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir Attar, Duke Garwood once again proves himself to be one of Britain’s boldest musical adventurers, taking this most traditional form somewhere entirely new.
