Today marks the 30th Anniversary of Pearl Jam‘s absolutely incredible debut album, Ten. The iconic record from the Seattle Rock & Roll Hall of Famers is considered to be one of the greatest debuts in rock history.
On August 27th, 1991…Ten was released and Pearl Jam’s career would take off very quickly. The band soon was tapped to play the Lollapalooza tour…they would get a now-famous MTV Unplugged showcasing songs from the record…make a legendary video with”Jeremy”…and would become one of the biggest bands in the world.
And personally speaking, I learned how to play the drums in the Summer/Fall of ’91 by listen to Ten with headphones and playing along on my first drum kit…and it was so much fun! Let’s celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Ten today, baby! What an all-time record! Check out the video below of PJ playing much of Ten live in the Netherlands!

There aren’t many albums where I can remember when and where I heard it for the very first time. But “Ten” is one of them. 🎸
