WHAT WAS YOUR GREATEST PEARL JAM EXPERIENCE?  
My first show at San Sebastian in 1996 and the trip to Seattle with a couple of friends in 2002. Two shows at the Showbox and two more at the Key Arena. We flew for 17 hours without tickets for the Showbox gig. In the end we entered the venue and enjoyed the shows, but it was very very hard to get inside. An awesome city and an unforgettable trip.


At Pistoia 2006 a friend and me entered the “protected zone” by the church where Boom plays the organ in the Imagine in Cornice DVD. We pretended to be stage workers (and it worked!) and we could see the soundcheck from a privileged situation. We could later talk with Eddie Vedder after he climbed down the tower (with Danny Clinch) where he was sweeping. We asked Eddie for Breath (and they played it later).


HOW EXTENSIVE IS YOUR PEARL JAM COLLECTION? 
Not too big compared to others. About 1200 items (cds, vinyls, etc) and 250 posters. But the best part of this illness is the community we created with the PjCollectors.com website and the friends I've made around the world. By the way ... I'd like to say THANK YOU again to all the people that support or are part of the PjCollectors.com community. You rock!


WAIT.  THAT'S OVER 1400 ITEMS AND IT'S "NOT TOO BIG?"  WHAT'S THE BIGGEST COLLECTION?
There is a user on our forum known as Bu$hleaguer.  I'm pretty sure he has almost everything that we know exists.



IS THERE A SPECIFIC LYRIC THAT MOVES YOU?  
"The world awaits just up the stairs
Leave the pain for someone else
Nothing back there for you to find
Or was it you you left behind?"
- [Life Wasted]
