Default Re: Jack Irons

Love his playing on Uplift Mofo. That album is one of my favs. I always thought it was a crying shame they only ever recorded one album featuring the original line up. There's just something about the playing of Irons and Hillel Slovak on that record that really grabs me.

Can't say he was my favourite Pearl Jam drummer though. I did see him play with them in the late '90's. Thoroughly enjoyed what he did, but when I think of the drummers PJ have had, Abbruzzese just seems to have the prefect groove suited to that band IMHO.....but anyways, back to Jack.

Here's what little DW has to offer: http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ght=jack+irons
