Part Two Of Our Exclusive Interview With Pearl Jam and Director Judd Apatow

October 9, 2013 - Pearl Jam has a new album Lightning Bolt coming out next week. It is their first since Backspacer in 2009. The band is not doing a lot of publicity for the album but they did sit down with comedic film director and producer Judd Apatow
(Anchorman, The Forty-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up) for a discussion of the music and their process. Actually it turns out that not only is Apatow a major Pearl Jam fan but the band has actually turned tables and interviewed him in the past. Today in part two of the interview things gets pretty emotional. Eddie Vedder expounds on his love for Neil Young, who Pearl Jam have recorded with before.
