CAMERON CROWE TALKS ABOUT PEARL JAM’S DOCUMENTARY

Lou Lumenick of The New York Post has a new interview up with Cameron Crowe that I found out about on theskyiscrape.com.  Here’s part of the interview:

Crowe calls it “our equal-part tribute to Bob Dylan’s ‘Don’t Look Back’ and The Who’s ‘The Kids Are Alright.’ When I first moved to Seattle in the mid-’80s, that now-hallowed music scene was starting to come together and I was fortunate to have a front-row seat to the formation and the early shows of Pearl Jam. We gave them jobs on ‘Singles’ to keep the band afloat.

“They became good friends of mine, and about 10 years ago we started talking about a project that would use all the archival stuff the band had never shown to the public. The time finally came to tell that story. Jeff Ament, the bassist and creative architect of the band in many ways, said to me, ‘I’m expecting to learn things about our little band that I never knew. I hope it’s a little bit like group therapy.’ ”

    Jeff Ament is kind of the silent lucidity of the band.
    He is always into the songs, feeling it raw.

    I really like Jeff and how down to earth he is

    Jeff is the man! Maybe he should take over the band direction and where they will go with their sound instead because Ed seems to care more about money these days.
