Tune Into NPR For More PJ20

This weekend on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday (check your local listings) ... well, they describe it better than I could.
... there is a reason to believe in the band, or at least in one band that started with an utterly crappy prognosis 20 years ago — Pearl Jam. On Weekend Edition Saturday, Scott Simon will talk with director Cameron Crowe and his fellow executive producer (and longtime Pearl Jam manager) Kelly Curtis about PJ20, the new documentary that, along with a soundtrack packed with rarities and a lush coffee table book, fetes alternative rock's most best working argument for being in a bad — not for hipster cred or intermittent chart success, but for the sheer bloody, ragged, glorious hell of it.
