(hennemusic) Former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese is reaching out to the band via social media to request their help to have him included in their nomination for the 2017 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

"It's just a fine opportunity to see what Pearl Jam has to say in response," posted Abbruzzese on Facebook. "Let's see if they do the right thing. It'll be interesting to see the spin that is put on it. That band and its management have never been ones to shy away when an injustice is done. Let's see if they still have the courage to fight the good fight!

"I've seen them change a 15 year old settlement agreement just by ignoring its contents and withholding money that didn't belong to them in order to force me to accept the changes. They know how to play the game…their way! … The members of Pearl Jam have got to know what's the right thing to do. They can't justify ignoring my contributions. Like me or not."

A few days after his initial comments, Abbruzzese once again turned to Facebook to express some further thoughts on the Rock Hall situation. "I rarely gave anything less than all I had to give," he wrote of his time with Pearl Jam. "I left that stage feeling like I gave you all you could want, then punched ya square in the stomach and you liked it. I liked it, too. I still do. So do you......Knowing that makes me happy.

"I don't feel snubbed, I was shocked at first because I didn't know that the R&RHOF folks don't really know what's up. In the little press snippets that is going around, I seem upset. I think it's cool that it's happening. Now I'll see how it plays out. I am so moved and proud. I am proud to have touched so many with what I do and did with music." Read more here.
