Just wanted to throw out a couple of details about the Pearl Jam Twenty book, movie, and soundtrack from Billboard.com, PBS.org, and the Ten Club that may have been lost in the hoopla today.
- Pearl Jam Twenty (book) was cowritten by Jonathan Cohen (former Billboard journalist/current "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" music booker) and Mark Wilkerson (author of "Who Are You: The Life of Pete Townshend") and designed by Regan Hagar (Pearl Jam's in-house artist and drummer for Satchel/Brad) with a forward to Pearl Jam Twenty (book) was written by Cameron Crowe.
- Pearl Jam Twenty (book) will be published by Simon & Schuster in North America and Atlantic Books in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
- Pearl Jam Twenty (movie), created from over 1,200 hours of rarely and never-before-seen footage, plus 24 hours of recently shot interview and live footage, will air on PBS on October 21st as part of a new American Masters series. That's not expected to be the debut of the film.
- Cameron Crowe has completed his selection of the tracks for Pearl Jam Twenty (soundtrack) which will be coming out on Columbia Records in conjunction with the release of the movie.
Hopefully, Pearl Jam will do something this year that is not called Pearl Jam Twenty, because I'm really getting confused.
