Play Rock Band 2 With Matt
Cameron of Pearl Jam
Pearl Jam is arguably one of the
most influential and iconic bands of the 90s – the beginning of the grunge
explosion, and is still producing incendiary and important music eighteen years
later. Now you can play with Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron as he plays Rock
Band 2 with Xbox LIVE Gold members March 27. If you’re an Xbox LIVE Gold member
(if not, upgrade now!), and you want a chance to play with Matt Cameron, send a
friend request to the following Gamertag (Pearl Jam GwF) and be online half an
hour before (6:30 P.M. ET) the Game with Fame session starts on Friday, March
27, 7:00 P.M. ET.
With eight full-length albums under
their belts, the band is now re-releasing their very first album put out in
1991, Ten. There will be four collectible special edition versions of the
re-release and you can find out more about these at the band’s official website.
Cameron is a veteran of Seattle’s music scene, having been a member of grunge
pioneer band Skin Yard, and longtime drummer for Soundgarden. He joined Pearl
Jam in 1998 and started recording with them on their 2000 release Binaural.
