Oh Man. You just gotta watch this. No whining about "not really caring for pearl jam" - this is about how the layers of rock n roll continue to grow; how each generation (if a generation is 5 years) of musicians has the whole history behind them; and how each new layer of rock folk dance punk grunge guitar music will inescapably incorporate the music that came before it.
Mentioned in the documentary is that the musicians in seattle "stayed inside a lot"-- (rain) therefore heard ALL the music, the Blues, Jazz, Rock, Folk, Dance, etc. a lot.
I have more to say about this special but i want to post while it is still showing and say, watch it!! Turn it up.
