They must be getting softer in their old age. Iconic rockers Pearl Jam have long made a habit of taking a familiar riff in one song, then letting it lead to another familiar one, most notably in their live performance of “Better Man” that dovetails into a cover of The English Beat’s “Save it for Later.”

However, that might be lost on the younger market, so perhaps Pearl Jam was making a more overt gesture towards the tween market with their performance of Frozen‘s “Let It Go.”

The trailer for Cameron Crowe’s Pearl Jam documentary, Pearl Jam Twenty, doesn’t leave much to discuss, save for the hilarious opening question posed by David Lynch to a befuddled Eddie Vedder.

“How old were you and where were you when music started being a thing for you?”

It’s a valid question, but fortunately, the rest of the trailer seems to rely much more heavily on band interviews and archive footage than it does on Mr. Lynch’s inquiring mind.

Of course, the trailer makes the doc out to be something of a puff piece, which is no surprise given Cameron Crowe‘s love of music in general and working class rock specifically. That said, the band has maintained popularity and a degree of relevance for twenty years now (hence the name) so perhaps they deserve a little love.

He's his own worst critic.

As reported, Cameron Crowe is making a documentary in honor of Pearl Jam‘s twentieth anniversary of not hating each other. Bassist Jeff Ament had an opportunity to check out the film and share his reaction with Rolling Stone:

“‘Black’ is a really good song.”

No, but really:

“I just saw a rough cut. It was so fucking weird seeing footage of stuff I didn’t know anybody was taping at the time. The whole movie is Cameron’s love letter to us – but it’s equal parts complimentary and really painful. It shows our growing pains and some real bad times, including Roskilde [the 2000 Danish festival where nine fans were trampled to death during the band’s set]. It was just really hard to watch.”

I believe it. Being really hard to watch is a common theme in Crowe‘s later works. Did you see Elizabethtown? Yeesh.

It’s 2011, and as Eddie Vedder prophesied lo these many years ago, this year marks the 20th anniversary of Pearl Jam. The movie is called Pearl Jam Twenty, and much like the band, the project is shrouded in mystery (don’t know if this is a joke or not). In 2009, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready was quoted as saying that the film’s director Cameron Crowe would have ““….all our footage, with all of our existing footage that we have” at his disposal for his documentary. I’m guessing that must include at least 100 hours of Eddie Vedder scowling.

This isn’t the only thing connecting the band with Cameron Crowe. The Almost Famous auteur also directed the anti-establishment band in a Target commercial (!) and the video for their song “The Fixer.” In addition to that, it’s also being reported that head Pearl Jammer Eddie Vedder is a big part of the soundtrack for Cameron Crowe’s new movie We Bought a Zoo.

So expect to be learning a lot about Pearl Jam in 2011, especially if you’re like me and your only direct knowledge of the band comes from the copy of Ten that you can’t bring yourself to get rid of for some reason. (via The Playlist)
