Pearl Jam’s Hall of Fame controversy! Of all five men who’ve drummed for the band, only founding member Dave Krusen and current stickman Matt Cameron are to be formally inducted alongside frontman Eddie Vedder, bassist Jeff Ament, and guitarists Stone Gossard and Mike McCready.
Dave Abbruzzese, who drummed with PJ from 1991 to 1994, wrote on Facebook “I challenge anyone to justify why I am not worthy of a place in the history of Pearl Jam. The official reason given from the RRHOF makes it bullshit, it make my years of hard work appear to be worthless towards the success born of the formative years of Pearl Jam.”
Now, in a new open letter, Pearl Jam expressed their desire to reunite with their other former drummers at the induction ceremony next month.
