Pearl Jam, who haven't performed publicly since filing their complaint against Ticketmaster with the Justice Department in May, are reportedly talking with Neil Young about teaming up for a string of dates in the Northwest this fall. Michael Wadleigh, who directed the original Woodstock film, is involved in planning the concerts, which will also feature several lesser-known bands. Tickets will probably be less than $20 (including service charge).

This story is from the September 22nd, 1994 issue of Rolling Stone.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
