Chris Cornell Talks About Crowe's Pearl Jam Twenty

PJ20 - 9.4.2011 - Alpine Valley, East Troy WI
Chris Cornell was recently interviewed by HitFix about his experience being part of Pearl Jam Twenty.  He had some great things to say about Cameron Crowe and Mother Love Bone.
He knew where to lead the questioning and what to ask and was also very interested and/or entertained by the answers, so it was a couple of hours of an interview where it was just, kind of, my memory being sparked by the questions, remembering all these different things.

I also felt like the years of Cameron as a filmmaker combined with Cameron as a music journalist came together brilliantly. It very much has his personality and some of his humor and just the essence of a Cameron Crowe film, it’s there, it’s in there. It’s not distanced from either side. You don’t get the feeling like you’re distanced from the band or from Cameron as a filmmaker. It all seemed to come together perfectly and coexist really well, I think, with Pearl Jam's history and their legacy. Being sort of in the middle of it, I felt like this captured what it felt like to me. And I don’t think there’s another person who would have been able to do that that well.
