‘We Still Have The Fire,’ says Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam’s future

Stone Gossard, Pearl Jam’s founding member and rhythm guitarist, recently spoke with Kyle Meredith about the band’s future. The musician stated that despite their many accomplishments, they still have the fire to create new things. Pearl Jam first appeared on the rock scene in 1990, with its alternative rock and grunge sound, and quickly became a fan favorite. Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, Mike McCready, and Matt Cameron, the band’s founding members, carried the band to success in the following years with several well-received studio albums.

Nirvana’s well-known album “Nevermind” was released around the same time as Pearl Jam’s debut album “Ten,” and both are considered grunge pioneers. Pearl Jam was a new band on the scene, ready to storm the industry with the fresh sound that the younger generation had been craving for a long time. It has been 32 years since the band rose to prominence, and they are still an important part of the rock music scene. Despite having released eleven studio albums to date, they continue to produce and gain success with new music. Pearl Jam’s most recent album, ‘Gigaton,’ was released in 2020 and received widespread acclaim.

Pearl Jam’s guitarist Stone Gossard recently stated that the band will remain at the top because they have that fire to keep them going. While other small bands have plenty of material to work with and aren’t stuck for ideas, older bands struggle to come up with new material. However, because Pearl Jame has that fire, they are optimistic about the future and eager to continue doing what they do best.

The following are Gossard’s thoughts on Pearl Jam’s future: “I think that when you’re in a band, the bar gets raised and raised because you’ve had these collaborations, and then it’s like news.” ‘Can you do it again in a different way?’ ‘Can you duplicate it?’ Painted Shield is still getting to know each other, so there is still a lot of range. Pearl Jam is still on fire. The fire is still burning. I still want to make the definitive Pearl Jam records of the twenty-first century. So I’m still fantasizing about what comes next for that.” The interview is available to view below.
