'VH1 Storytellers: Pearl Jam' Premieres July 1
The episode treats fans to a unique experience as Pearl Jam performs new songs from their latest self-titled album Pearl Jam (click for review) in addition to previous hits. In quintessential "Storytellers" form, the band (Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard, Mike McCready, Jeff Ament and Matt Cameron) answer questions from fans and in a new interview give an honest and revealing look at the stories behind the songs. Viewers will get a unique opportunity to hear the inspiration behind such hits as "Betterman" and "Alive" and from their new album Pearl Jam, "Worldwide Suicide," "Life Wasted" and "Gone."
Woven throughout the show are political musings and points of view by the band and a solo acoustic performance by Eddie Vedder of "Here's To The State." The song is a reworking of late folk singer Phil Ochs' song "Here's to the State of Mississippi" with a new title and lyrics directed at President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Evangelist Jerry Falwell and Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez.
