Former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese has reacted to Pearl Jam inviting him to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony next month on Facebook. While Abbruzzese had lobbied to be part of the inducted lineup for months, and criticized his ex-bandmates, he appears to be happy with the invitation, sharing two posts about it on Facebook.
Pearl Jam revealed in a statement to Rolling Stone that it was not their decision to leave Dave Abbruzzese and Jack Irons out of the band’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted lineup, following their public invitation to Abbruzzese, Irons, and Matt Chamberlain to attend the ceremony.
Rolling Stone reported, “Asked whether Abbruzzese, Chamberlain and Irons would be inducted into the Rock Hall, a representative for Pearl Jam said the inductees are solely determined by the Rock Hall and not the band. Following Pearl Jam’s invitation, a rep for the Rock Hall confirmed to Rolling Stone that only Krusen and Cameron would be inducted.”
Pearl Jam announced on Saturday that they hope to reunite with all of their past drummers at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month, including Dave Abbruzzese and Jack Irons. Read the band’s full note to fans below.
