I'm Still Alive.

I've not really come down from the televised Pearl Jam gig the other night. It was probably one of the best bits of telly I've ever seen, and I honestly don't think it's something I'll ever forget. God only knows what I'd be like now if I'd been there and seen the thing live. Lots have people have mentioned how surprised they are that I'm a Pearl Jam fan: Everyone's got to start somewhere though, right? Anyway, it seems the gig was a big hit, and I hope the Beeb are planning to put it out on DVD because if they don't people will be trading this on P2P forever. I'd buy it for sure.

For those of you who missed, there's loads of footage over at YouTube. Pretty much all the televised stuff is there, along with some professional looking footage that's lacking the BBC logo. There's also loads of cameraphone stuff so it's really worth checking out if a) you're a fan and b) have an hour to spare. If you've only 10 minutes, make these two a priority:

1) Rearviewmirror - As I said in my last PJ post, this is the track that first really turned me onto the band. Here, it's an 8 minute stadium rock classic.

2) Crown of Thorns - Those of you who know Pearl Jam's history will know this: It's a cover of a song by Mother Love Bone, a band both Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament featured in before the lead singer died from a heroin overdose in the late 80's.

And here's something for your ears. Enjoy.

PS - If this hasn't been enough of a geekgasm for you, there's loads of ace tour photos here.
