According to The Pulse Of Radio, PEARL JAM has released a clip from the upcoming documentary "Pearl Jam Twenty", which will chronicle the band's entire two-decade career through interviews, rare footage, live performances and more. In the clip, taken in the band's formative days, its members discuss changing the band name from the original MOOKIE BLAYLOCK to PEARL JAM. Making a cameo right at the beginning is late ALICE IN CHAINS frontman Layne Staley."Pearl Jam Twenty" is due out in September from "Jerry Maguire" director and longtime band friend Cameron Crowe. The film, an accompanying book, an upcoming two-day festival and recent reissues of PEARL JAM's first three albums are all part of a 20th-anniversary celebration. Still, bassist Jeff Ament told The Pulse Of Radio he's a little tired of reviewing the past. "I'm ready to make a new record and get out of the mode of looking back and digging through boxes and looking for stuff," he said. "It's really good because I think that there's so much going on at the time that you forget so many things. And when people start pulling out pictures and footage from things, it's a trip to realize that large aspects of your life are fully documented (laughs)." PEARL JAM does plan to begin work on a new album this year. Frontman Eddie Vedder's new solo album, "Ukulele Songs", will arrive on May 31, accompanied by a live solo DVD titled "Water On The Road".
