Kim Neely was one of Pearl Jam's earliest supporters in the national press, and interviewed them extensively during the most pivotal years of their career. In 'Five Against One' she offers a richly detailed behind-the-scenes chronicle of Pearl Jam's ascent to superstardom - from their early days as fame-ducking grunge pioneers to their headline-making battle with Ticketmaster, to their current status as self-assured survivors with a new sense of peace about multi-platinum success.
At the core of the book is a compelling portrait of the band's reclusive leader, Eddie Vedder. Through conversations with Vedder and members of his family, Neely fully reveals for the first time the troubled history that so heavily influenced Vedder's music and cemented his bond with a legion of loyal followers.
