HENRIK TUXEN, BIÓGRAFO DE PEARL JAM: “NO HE VISTO NINGUNA BANDA DE LOS ÚLTIMOS AÑOS CON LA TRASCENDENCIA DE PEARL JAM”

by Andrés del Real (La Tercera)

El danés, que sigue la visita del grupo a Santiago, analiza el fanatismo local por la banda de Seattle, un fenómeno que es parte de su último libro.

Nada como una mirada externa para aclarar un mito criollo: ¿Es el culto chileno a Pearl Jam un fenómeno único en el mundo? ¿Lo ven así también los integrantes de la banda? Para el danés Henrik Tuxen, periodista, músico y biógrafo del quinteto de Seattle, la respuesta es afirmativa.

“En Chile y Argentina se da una situación similar, aunque conozco mejor lo que ocurre en Chile. Aquí la gente se conecta con la música de Pearl Jam de manera muy especial, con las canciones pero también con su contenido, además de ser muy abiertos con el catálogo completo del grupo. He hablado de esto con algunos miembros de la banda y también lo ven así”, asegura el escritor, quien por estos días se encuentra en Santiago siguiendo a Eddie Vedder y compañía para sus shows en el Movistar Arena (el pasado martes 13) y el de esta noche en Lollapalooza.

The writer-to-be dozes off for a moment backstage after an incredibly long day, but wakes up suddenly with somebody hopping in his lap, wrapping an arm around his shoulder, looking him straight in the eyes with a laugh and saying something he doesn’t comprehend a word of. Kurt Block reacts quickly and captures the moment on film. Henrik Tuxen & Eddie Vedder. Barcelona, Spain. November 22, 1996. Photo: Kurt Bloch. (From chapter 1)

Henrik Tuxen is a substitute roadie for Pearl Jam's supporting act Fastbacks - one of Eddie's favourite bands. Earlier that year, Kurt Bloch produced Sharing Patrol in Seattle.

"To me, Pearl Jam is still the world’s greatest band. To me, it’s the most complete band – a single band whose catalog embodies so many aspects of the very reason I listen to music. Anger, strength, power, passion, intensity, humor, insight, euphoria, unity, love and the four elements. I’ve found my mentors in Pearl Jam – on a human, musical and personal level. A way of being, with an underlying base of humility and respect for others. They’ve given me an education in reading situations and staying calm, reserved and relaxed – even under pressure. It’s become an essential element of my continued work as a journalist and, I would hope, my dealings with fellow humans. I do my best." Henrik Tuxen

US book release March 7 2018. Available on Amazon and Smashwords worldvide.

20 years in the making, now the script has been approved.

While the band never wanted to publish an official biography, they approved the release of this book. 'The More You Need - The Less You Get' is an in depth and very personal alternative Pearl Jam biography.

Danish author and rock journalist Henrik Tuxen's new book about Pearl Jam will be released very soon. Here a little book trailer while we wait for PEARL JAM The More You Need - The Less You Get (US edition).

From Kickstarter campaign November 1 o December 1, 2017. The campaign was a succes. 249 backers pledged DKK 67,075 to help bring this project to life via Kickstarter and one backer pledged a bit later.
