Pearl Jam Release Cameron Crowe’s Grainy ‘Not for You’ Video
Archival footage culled from Vedder and Co.'s independent mid-'90s tours
Earlier this fall, famed film director/music journalist/grunge nerd Cameron Crowe premiered Pearl Jam 20, his feature-length documentary that both fawns over and follows the Seattle rock icons through their 20 years as a band. After a short engagement in select theaters and a nationally televised premiere last week on PBS, Crowe is now sharing a complimentary music video for “Not for You,” a bristling standout from 1994’s Vitalogy. Culled mostly from grainy archival footage from Peej’s homegrown, anti-Ticketmaster tour of the mid-’90s, it’s a fan-tailored snapshot of the band just as they began really accelerating away from the mainstream crush that made frontman Eddie Vedder so uncomfortable.
