This is not true. (And by the way, Matt Chamberlain is by far the best Pearl Jam drummer).
He left Pearl Jam; 1- because he was just filling in for a fired drummer, and more importantly 2- he was the Saturday Night Live drummer for that season.
He then came back to Seattle and FORMED Critters Buggin', his own project (who still play today).
He played on the Wallflowers hit record, Macy Gray, Elton John, David Bowie, Garbage, Eddie Brickell, Peter Gabriel, Natalie Merchant, Tori Amos (live and studio), John Mayer, Faith Hill, Sara Evans, Keith Urban, Christina Aguillera to name a few. I see at least 10 top 10 albums he recorded, so leaving Pearl Jam seems like it worked out pretty well.
