While the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame won't be inducting all five of Pearl Jam's drummers, the band itself is now making sure that they'll at least be on hand to share the honor.
On Saturday the band posted a note on social media saying that it feels "fortunate to be recognized and provided the opportunity to reunite with everyone who has been part of the group." That means that the band has invited Matt Chamberlain, Dave Abbruzzese, and Jack Irons, who played with the group between official inductees Dave Krusen and Matt Cameron, to join it at the April 7th ceremony at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Abbruzzese, in particular, has been vocal about being excluded from induction.
Pearl Jam calls the three "each individually great players who gave their all to the early recordings and live gigs." The band says it is "Looking forward to seeing them and all the other musicians on the bill.” It also expressed regret that singers H.R. of Bad Brains and Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction hadn't been voted in and wouldn't be there.
