Dave Abbruzzese Drops Pearl Jam Return Bombshell


Pearl Jam used guest drummer Richard Stuverud and touring member Josh Klinghoffer on drums in Oakland after Matt Cameron tested positive for the virus. Dave Abbruzzese was asked by a fan to return in a Rolling Stone Facebook comment, with the fan stating, “Dave’s available.” Dave responded, “No I am not (smiling emoji).”

Sea recapped the show on the PearlJam.com forums.
