Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder recently dropped hints that the band might have “one or two” good records left in them.

Eddie Vedder says Pearl Jam might call it a day

Speaking to MOJO Magazine a month ahead of the release of ‘Dark Matter’, their 12th studio record, Eddie Vedder said:

“The older you get the better you are at living in the present,” he said. “The understanding you have less time is the biggest number in the quotient. The goal is to keep making music.”

Vedder also reflected on the fact that a number of his friends have passed away, including Chris Cornell, Mark Lanegan and Layne Staley. “[At this stage] you lean on the relationships with the people who are still around. It really hits you when you are in a situation where that person would be there. And you’re sad for them that they’re not.”

“But it makes you realise you gotta be healthy. You want to be around for your kids. You want to make good records,” he continued. “And we might have one or two left.”

Pearl Jam

Pearl Jam has rocked the world of music since the early 90s. It all began in Seattle, a city that was quickly becoming the epicenter of the grunge movement. The seeds of Pearl Jam were planted when guitarist Stone Gossard and bassist Jeff Ament, former members of the band Mother Love Bone, decided to form a new group after the tragic death of their lead vocalist, Andrew Wood.

They teamed up with Mike McCready and the trio began jamming together, creating the foundation of what would become Pearl Jam. The crucial piece of the puzzle fell into place when a demo tape featuring their instrumental track made its way to San Diego.Then-a young singer Eddie Vedder wrote lyrics and recorded the vocals for three songs including the future hits, ‘Alive’, ‘Once’ and ‘Footsteps.’ His powerful and poignant lyrics resonated with the band and Vedder soon moved to Seattle to join them. Their debut album, “Ten,” released in 1991 went on to become massive success. More hits like “Jeremy,” “Even Flow,” and “Alive” defined a generation and cemented Pearl Jam’s place in rock history.

As the years went by, Pearl Jam continued to evolve, experimenting with different sounds while staying true to their roots. They’ve released numerous albums, each one showcasing their musical growth and unwavering dedication to their craft.
