I'm going to lay off the hockey for a while tonight and get back into some Pearl Jam discussions. It is only a matter of days after all, before everyone can get their hands on Backspacer. I'm sure any Pearl Jam fan is foaming at the mouth at the moment. I know I am and it's surprising even to myself that I've focused on the NHL as of late. Oh well, I'm sure there's lots of PJ news to come, starting today.
I got some updates in my inbox yesterday which I'll direct to any Rock Band fans out there. I've only played the game once myself (not as Pearl Jam unfortunately) and do not own it, but I do know how enjoyable a game it is. Well, guess what? Backspacer will be available to play as soon as the album is released. Check out this snippit from a recent Reuters article:
