PEARL JAM The More You Need - The Less You Get
by Henrik Tuxen
“We never wanted anyone to write the official band biography, and we still feel that way. But if you choose to write your own interpretations, based upon all the things that we have experienced together and about what has happened, I would like to participate in any way that I can. I think that would be an interesting read and an important story to tell.” — Stone Gossard, Pearl Jam.
