Former Pearl Jam drummer David Abbruzzese continues to criticize his old band, and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, for excluding him from induction.
"Pearl Jam has always seemingly had a perceived level of integrity and has been known to stand their ground & fight the good fight," Abbruzzese writes in a Facebook post. "But it seems the allure of being given this trophy is just too important for them to take a stand."
When Pearl Jam is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year, current members Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Matt Cameron, Jeff Ament and…
