"Organized this show to raise funds combating prostate cancer at the request of Johnny Ramone. He was dying and his friends were doing whatever we could do not just to keep him alive, but to make him happy. John Frusciante flew in from thousands of miles away after the end of a Peppers tour. Cornell came up. It was also the day I told loved ones we were expecting a child. It wasn't just a life or death gig … it was life and death — emotional. Turned out to be the last time Johnny saw myself or the band play live. He was happy, I was proud. I'm thankful he stuck around so my daughter could meet her Uncle John." — Eddie Vedder

"Tim Robbins had a set of these framed and put in his office — it struck me as a very powerful iconography. Of course some fans were disappointed it didn't spell our something more secretive in regards to the band — like the mystery name of Stone Gossard's dog — you know, something deeper." — Eddie Vedder

"Pearl Jam going back on tour in '06 gave us an avenue to funnel not only our creativity, but also a way to voice our frustrations with how unbelievably out of control things had become with our current administration. If I were to sum this poster up in one word, it would definitely be 'dastardly,' a word usually reserved for 1970s cartoon supervillans." — Colby Schultz
