Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard was interviewed over a week ago on WMMR. Somehow I missed it then, but here’s a quote:
“We’re really excited about getting back to Philly, these dates just kind of came up about a week ago it got presented to us and everybody said yes let’s do it. So we’re real excited about doing it, it’s kind of thrilling to play the same weekend as Jay-Z I’ve got to admit I’m pretty excited about that as well.”
He also reiterated that Pearl Jam’s new album will be out next year, and talked about how thankful he is to be in two great bands like Pearl Jam and Brad. He also mentioned that his wife will be thrilled that Drake is playing with Jay-Z at the Made In America festival in Philly.
