Ex-Drummer Claims Another Pearl Jam Member Was ‘Never’ Real Part Of Band


In new Facebook comments, former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese claimed that fellow former Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain was never a member of Pearl Jam. He later called Chamberlain an influence though, so he didn’t really seem to be throwing shade at him.

“Matt Chamberlain was never a member of Pearl Jam.

He was hired on for a two week tour.”

A fan later wrote to Abbruzzese, “‘Tinseltown Rebellion’ is a Frank Zappa album with Vinnie Colaiuta on drums. Find it and listen in to it!”

Abbruzzese responded, “Earl Harvin & Matt Chamberlain, too!! Those guys influenced me alot. Stone Gossards gtr playing enabled it to be incorporated into my style.”

Bandalismo is reporting a rumor that Pearl Jam will announce new summer 2018 European tour dates on December 4th.

They reported (via translation), “The daily drip will remain constant until December 4, when everything seems to point to the announcement that everyone has been waiting for, the European tour of Pearl Jam, which will finish setting the three dates that initially have in the peninsula and that at the moment sound like July 10 in Barcelona, ​​July 12 in Madrid and July 14 in Lisbon. We will be expectant.”

Pearl Jam expert dimitrispearljam recently posted new 2018 tour rumors on the Ten Club forums.

A fan asked, “Is there anything other new and unusual compared to the usual dublin,london,amsterdam,arras,werchter,copenhagen,berlin, italy x 2 + festivals in spain and portugal?”

He responded, “yes..and alot of the above countries,arent in the tour.”
