Pearl Jam: The Love of My Life Story

Whenever I have been asked the question, "What's your all-time favorite band?", there is never hesitation. I always answer quickly and confidently-Pearl Jam. I began listening to their music when I was coming out of my Amy Grant and NKOTB phase. And those were good days, too, I must say. But midway through junior high, as most of us in that phase of life do, I discovered my "path" and music was a big part of it. Pearl Jam was the main influence--from the way I dressed to the type of friends I gravitated towards. They liked Pearl Jam and the likes?--instant bond. I've always loved that about PJ fans; the passion runs deep. To me, it seems that people either have a history of love for them or they don't. I rarely find any inbetweens. I've never heard anyone say, "Pearl Jam? Eh, they're alright." It just doesn't happen.

To this day, I attribute my introduction to the greatest band that ever lived and still lives to my eldest sisters who listened to them when I was vulnerable and influential; they should be so proud. As for my devotion to Pearl Jam all these years? That's all me.:)
