Pearl Jam celebrate Rock Hall induction with video retrospective

Pearl Jam are celebrating their upcoming induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame with a new video retrospective set to the soundtrack of their 1991 debut single “Alive.”

“I'll ride the wave where it takes me,” says band videographer Kevin Shuss. “To celebrate Pearl Jam's induction into the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame, I made this video to look back at the band's first 25 years. Thanks guys! Can't wait to see what the future holds.”

“Alive” introduced the Seattle band just three weeks before the release of their debut album, “Ten.”

Alongside follow-up singles “Even Flow”, “Jeremy” and “Oceans”, the project eventually peaked at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than 13 million copies in the States alone.

On April 7 at New York’s Barclays Center, longtime associate Neil Young will induct Pearl Jam as part of the Class of 2017 alongside fellow honorees Journey, the Electric Light Orchestra, Yes, Joan Baez and Tupac Shakur.

Set to be honored are the current Pearl Jam lineup of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament and Matt Cameron, and founding member Dave Krusen, while the Rock Hall failed to acknowledge the work of drummers Dave Abbruzzese, Matt Chamberlain and Jack Irons.
