About Us: Publisher of The Pearl Jam Vault - John Procopio
Greetings fellow Pearl Jam freaks! Thanks for
visiting my website. I first discovered Pearl Jam in 1992. My
first PJ show was in Rochester, NY on April 7, 1994 (naturally it was
amazing; I recall seeing five fireballs on stage - wow). I live in
Eugene, Oregon and have seen the band about 15 times. My favorite
all-time shows I've attended are Soldier Field (7/11/95) and
Randall's Island (9/29/96) and of course, the cherry-popper in April of '94.
While my musical interests are varied --I hardly listen to PJ 24/7--
I consider Pearl Jam to be the band that I most connect with. Best band ever... no doubt.
The Pearl Jam Vault started as text-only FTP site (!) in circa 1994.
I worked on early editions of the Pearl Jam setlist files -- at that
time called the JAManac. Since I'm a pretty anal person, I started
making lists of Pearl Jam stats, songs, improvs and the like. Those
files have been cared for over time and information has been kept
up to date. This website is based on that early work. For the really
curious, I work full-time in marketing in the public-safety equipment sector.
I have a really simple homepage
you can visit, or you can follow me on Twitter here. Feel free to write me anytime. :)
