Top Ten Pearl Jam Moments of 2014, #6


Definitely the latest moment in our countdown ... earlier this month, we found out that Lightning Bolt was nominated for a Grammy.  Although we all feel it was deserving of a Best Album grammy, this particular nomination was for Best Recording Package.

The package, featuring art by Don Pendleton, who we originally met when he provided artwork for Jeff Ament's solo album, While My Heart Beats, was part of our Top Ten Moments last year because of the original way Pearl Jam rolled out the artwork, revealing single pieces of art in a drawn out, dramatic way.

If the album wins, the Grammy would be shared with art directors Jeff Ament, Joe Spix & Eddie Vedder (who provides art direction under the pseudonym, Jerome Turner).
