It depends on the weather, but most of the time it's Yield.
FAVORITE BAND MEMBER:
Vedder, because he surfs.
HOW MANY SHOWS HAVE YOU ATTENDED?
IT'S SAFE TO SAY THAT PEARL JAM IS YOUR OBSESSION. WHY PEARL JAM?
I can relate to the lyrics, I enjoy their music and I respect the ethics that they stand for. That is why I love the band so much. On top of that, their shows serve as a meeting point where extraordinary people (the fans) gather, people whom I might not have had the honour of meeting in the first place if it weren't for Pearl Jam. These fans have become great friends and inspirations for me and they come from all over the world. So the shows are a way for me to keep in touch with people and see friends every year.
WHAT WAS YOUR GREATEST PEARL JAM EXPERIENCE?
There isn't one experience that is the greatest, but the most significant is that drive across Canada in the Touring Van and starting this whole thing, meeting and becoming great friends with many of the fans. I have not looked back since.
HOW EXTENSIVE IS YOUR PEARL JAM COLLECTION?
Not much of a collector, but I do have every poster from the 2005 Canadian tour and a few from the 2006 world tour.
Oh and I have a "White" Backspacer Vinyl.
IS THERE A SPECIFIC LYRIC THAT MOVES YOU?
"How I choose to feel is how I am." [Inside Job]
"Run away my son, see it all, oh see the world" [Breath]
WHAT ELSE IS ON YOUR IPOD RIGHT NOW?
Don't have an iPod. But other bands I see live are Nine Inch Nails, White Stripes, Arcade Fire, Decemberists, Zeppelin, The Doors, The Frames, Wintersleep, Built To Spill, Gogol Bordello, Ladies Who Lunch, Jake Shimabukuro, Hey Rosetta!, Metric, NoRey, Ocean Roots.
WHEN YOU WALK AWAY FROM YOUR COMPUTER, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
Travelling. Keeping active. Enjoying life to the fullest.
WHAT PASSIONS DO YOU HAVE BEYOND PEARL JAM?
Travelling, film making, surfing, boxing, hockey, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Flyers, mexican food, the ocean and ocean related causes such as Ocean Roots.
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT TIM BIERMAN, MANAGER OF THE TEN CLUB, STEALING THE NAME OF YOUR BLOG AND BOOK FOR HIS WEEKLY CALL IN SHOW ON SIRIUSXM RADIO?
Haha! :} Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
I hope both the show and book are very successful and can help support one another.
