9780140276428: Five Against One: The Pearl Jam Story

More than any other band, Pearl Jam embodies the alternative style that dominates rock today. From their early days as fame-ducking grunge pioneers, through their headline-making battle with Ticketmaster, to their current status as self-assured survivors, Five Against One brings to life Pearl Jam's tumultuous ascent to superstardom in rich detail. A compelling portrait of the band's elusive leader Eddie Vedder and family photos never seen before by the public make this a must-have for every Pearl Jam fan.

About the Author:

Kim Neely covered hard rock and alternative music for Rolling Stone magazine for ten years. Currently a freelance writer, she lives in New York City.

From Booklist:

Glom the Pearl Jam ethos from a single vignette. In 1994, the band was scheduled to play the Boston Garden, and a contract clause stipulated band access to "the fabled Celtics court." No one told the Bruins, though, and when they showed up for practice, the basketball floor was down over their ice, and "Pearl Jam [was] happily immersed in a vigorous game of b-ball." Beantown media "chastised the band for pulling celebrity rank," but in a defining gesture, head Jammer Eddie Vedder later hung around the Bruins' locker room until he was invited in. In the ensuing rocker-jocker fest of manly respect and merriment, "chances are [Vedder] neglected to mention" that the night before "he'd sneaked into their locker room and smuggled out one of their hockey sticks." Longtime PJ supporter Neely examines the band of the '90s in disturbing detail: the fight against Ticketmaster, Eddie the antistar, the way PJ's "much-lauded distaste for hype was the hype" --it's all here, presented to excite the fans and inform more casually interested readers. Mike Tribby
