Pearl Jam's Painful Documentary

(Gibson) Pearl Jam's ambitious 20th Anniversary celebrations of their debut album will see a deluxe reissue of 1993's Vs. and 1994's Vitalogy, a band-curated festival in the summer and the long-awaited release of their Cameron Crowe-directed documentary.

The documentary, called Pearl Jam Twenty, includes archive footage, as well as live performances and interviews from the past 20 years. Talking to Rolling Stone magazine bass player Jeff Ament said:

"I just saw a rough cut. It was so [expletive] weird seeing footage of stuff I didn't know anybody was taping at the time. The whole movie is Cameron's love letter to us but it's equal parts complimentary and really painful. It shows our growing pains and some real bad times, including Roskilde [the 2000 festival in Denmark during which nine fans died during a performance]. It was just really hard to watch."
