Matt Cameron was photographed backstage at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with former Pearl Jam drummers Dave Krusen and Jack Irons. Krusen was part of the band’s inducted Hall of Fame lineup, and while Irons wasn’t he was invited by his close friend Eddie Vedder to attend. Krusen drummed on Ten, while Irons drummed on No Code and Yield. Below this photo is another awesome Krusen backstage photo!
Jack Irons tweeted, “Very happy to have been in attendance for Rock Hall 2017!! Nothing but love for my friends in Pearl Jam and the whole PJ organization!”

Dave Krusen also shared a backstage photo of himself and his family with the ‘boss’ Eddie Vedder. Krusen wrote, “Family photo with the boss- thanks for a great night everybody!”
Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron commented on the controversy surrounding former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese’s exclusion from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a late March interview with Rockol. Keep in mind the interview was published in Italian, so these are translated quotes and Cameron may have used different verbiage in his answers.
The reporter asked, “Does Pearl Jam’s entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have a special meaning for you? And how many drummers will be present?”
Cameron responded, “Things are out of my control, I have no idea what will happen with the drummers. I just know that the ones who enter the Hall of Fame will be me and Dave Krusen. It is an honor. It will be fun.”
When asked about a new Pearl Jam album, Cameron said, “For now the only plan is to gather and write new songs.”
