Editor’s note: The reporter previously attributed Irons having drummed on albums he did not drum on.
Pearl Jam fans have always had a love for former drummer Jack Irons. It looks like Jam fans may be in for something special as the waves of bringing him back are really closer than ever.
Irons was recently featured on PJ Radio via SirusXM. He stated on his Instagram that he did ramble a bit and fans are totally okay with it since we really haven’t heard too much from Jack in a bit. He also hinted at some new music, but sadly, it doesn’t seem like it will be with Pearl Jam, regardless, it’ll be nice to hear him back on some tracks.
Despite his short time with the band, Irons played an important role in shaping Pearl Jam’s sound during a crucial period in their history. He left the band in 1998, but his contributions continue to be felt in their music to this day and it really shows because of how much love fans still have for Jack and how much they want to see him behind the kit.
Maybe we will get that someday, but it just doesn’t seem like now is the right time for that as his focus is elsewhere. Pearl Jam have a new album on the way.
Jack said on Instagram: “Cool things this week… much thanks @pearljam and @siriusxm PJ Radio and David Fricke for letting me ramble. And some new music coming out this week from a very cool project @bigolnastygetdown where many really good musicians thru the decades are contributing..”
