As I sit here typing this, I am still having trouble coming to terms with the fact that Pearl Jam has been together for nearly 20 years...wow. I was at their 10th anniversary gig in Las Vegas in 1999 and that seemed like an epic milestone. Now double that. I am ancient. But at least Pearl Jam has stuck it out and held my hand for the last 20 years of life experience. I have literally grown up with their music, and while I don't listen to it as often as I used to...it is like that one amazing old friend that you know will ALWAYS be there for you...no matter what.
Speaking of milestones, I am getting really excited for the reissue of '10' on March 24! But I was sitting here and zoning about, just listening to some music and 'Leash'(off of VS) came on via the shuffle. For my money, there is no better song for good old fashioned visceral rocking out...I still turn this one up to 11 every time :-)
