Pearl Jam Stories w/ Richard Stuverud
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: December 19th, 2022
Special Guest: Richard Stuverud
We had a very special guest attend our annual Live On 4 Legs Holiday Party this year – Mr. Richard Stuverud joined us to talk about his dream moment playing in Pearl Jam on the live stage. It was the largest crowds that he’d ever performed in front of. We got to have a very open conversation with him about the experience and all that’s happened after, especially if his own solo career has changed since it went down.

This was a great conversation. In the PJ20 book, Jeff is quoted as saying that Richard was one of the drummers that the band auditioned before Jack got the job. I wished someone would’ve asked him about that. There’s an alternate history of Pearl Jam where Richard gets the job and No Code and Yield probably sound like very different albums.
You’re right, we probably should’ve asked him that. We were focused on this year and getting in some fan Q and As and didn’t want to keep him on too long. Great to have him for nearly 40 minutes though! When he was on Touring Fan Live a few months ago they talked about it if you want to find that interview, might be on their YouTube.
