Mother Love Bone – Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns & Cameron Crowe’s Upcoming Pearl Jam Documentary

I have always loved the piano and lyrics in the beginning of this song. Described as “one astoundingly great song”, “trancelike epic”, “fantastically melancholy”, “beautifully swirling”, “Chloe Dancer / Crown of Thorns” was included on Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Songs Over 7 Minutes Long list. It takes you on a journey… kind of like “Stairway to Heaven”… Like many great artists, singer Andrew Wood died before his time, overdosing on heroin in 1990. This lead to bassist Jeff Ament and guitarist Stone Gossard forming Pearl Jam a year later. (See part II of this post below.)

Pearl Jam has also just released the first cut from their upcoming documentary with Cameron Crowe “Pearl Jam Twenty”. Check out this rare live version of “Crown of Thorns”:

I wish I had Cameron Crowe’s job…
