Hey it’s Scott Alan,
Sounds like former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese is not happy. He has issued a statement on his exclusion from the band’s nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Abbruzzese wrote on his Facebook page, “It’s just a fine opportunity to see what Pearl Jam has to say in response. Let’s see if they do the right thing. Let’s see if they still have the courage to fight the good fight!”
Should they be inducted, only original drummer Dave Krusen and current guy Matt Cameron will be inducted with the other four founding members. Abbruzzese, Jack Irons and Matt Chamberlain, who all played with Pearl Jam after Krusen left and before Cameron became permanent in 1998, will not enter the Hall with the other members.
Abbruzzese also accused Pearl Jam of withholding money owed to him.
