The Pearl Jam Drummer Controversy: We Edge Closer to a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Solution

Oh, the drama. Which ex-members of Yes will show up for their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction? Why isn’t Bev Bevan coming to be inducted with the rest of ELO? And how many of Pearl Jam’s five drummers will appear with them when they accept their honours?

Matt Cameron will obviously be there because he’s been the timekeeper since 1998. Matt Chamberlain has sent his regrets, so we won’t see him. Jack Irons and Dave Abbruzzese? Still not sure. But it looks like Dave Krusen–the guy we hear on the Ten album–will be in attendance. In fact, he confirmed via Instagram that he’s now in Seattle rehearsing with the band. This points to him performing with Pearl Jam for the first time in 26 years.

At least that’s what we think this means.
