Cameron Crowe writes and directs the history of a megaband

Rising from the ashes of Mother Love Bone, Pearl Jam came into existence twenty years ago when Eddie Vedder jumped into the vocalist spot evacuated with the death of Andrew Wood. Months later the band dropped Ten, the album that introduced the world to “Alive”,”Evenflow”,  “Black” and “Jeremy”, not to mention Vedder’s legendary howl (and a couple years later, unfortunate armies of Creed and Nickelback imitators). Pearl Jam, the megaband, was born, and the film Twenty — yet another rock love letter written and directed by Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Singles, Say Anything) — tells their story. “Pearl Jam Twenty chronicles the years leading up to the band’s formation, the chaos that ensued soon-after their rise to megastardom, their step back from center stage, and the creation of a trusted circle that would surround them,” the producers explain. The documentary is distilled down from over 1,200 hours of rare and never-before-seen footage spanning Pearl Jam’s entire career, with a full cast of Seattle Grunge legends (including the late great Layne Staley) in their halcyon years. Half concert film and half documentary, Pearl Jam’s Twenty will be opening in September.
