SNEAK PEEK FROM 'THE MORE YOU NEED' 

PEARL JAM: The More You Need - The Less You Get features more than 60 photos of the band in an array of settings through the years. Most of the photos come from private collections, but many, including the cover photo, were provided courtesy of Pearl Jam via Universal Music Denmark and Monkeywrench Records.

Henrix Tuxen reflects here on some of the events of the past two decades that have left an indelible mark on his life – for better and for worse.

    “This picture is from my first encounter with Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder. After a long life as a rock bassist, I stumbled into journalism purely by chance. I was friends with members of the band Fastbacks, Pearl Jam’s supporting act on their 1996 European tour, and I tagged along for their gigs in Barcelona and San Sebastian. At the time, Pearl Jam was basically Fort Knox in terms of the press, with rumors abounding that Eddie Vedder was peculiar, aggressive, suicidal and introverted. I discovered the exact opposite to be true and became a huge fan in the blink of an eye. I spent half the night after the concert in Fastbacks' backstage room, where Eddie was the first to arrive and the last to leave. The room buzzed with high spirits, tall tales and lots of love. I got to know Eddie pretty well during those days in Spain and I was blown away by his and the band’s performance – and how intensely passionate the audiences responded. Those days are etched in my memory – an experience I’ll never forget.”

    “I ran into Eddie Vedder and we talked for about ten minutes before they went on the stage at Roskilde Festival in 2000. We reminisced about those great days in Spain, and his friend Chirs Cornell had just called to tell him that Cornell’s wife Susan Silver just gave birth to the couple’s first child. Everything was good, everyone was happy. And then everything suddenly changed. I was standing on the stage, right behind Mike, together with Marianne Søndergaard and Lene Westen from Sony Music. This photo was taken at the moment Eddie Vedder learns that a tragedy has occurred. Everything was chaos after that, and I felt like a surreal extra in a disaster movie.” (from Chapter 2)   Roskilde Festival – June 30, 2000. Photo: Johan Persson

  “I set my tour record in 2014, making it to 5 out of PJ’s 11 concerts in Europe. Tons of great experiences, incredible concerts, emotional moments with many relatives, countless backstage anecdotes, and a moving and personal dedication from Eddie to me and Susan from the stage at Wuhlheide in Berlin. The concert started out meditatively with  Pendulum  in the blazing sun, rolling on towards a roaring conclusion as dark clouds filled the skies, featuring a banging version of  Rearviewmirror  and insanely dynamic interplay between Mike and Boom on  Crazy Mary , followed by  Comatose , where they totally fucked up the intro and had to start over. We’re two hours and nine minutes into the concert. I’m standing next to my soulmate Kasper Schulz, surrounded by Norwegians who’ve downed more than their share of beer along the way. Eddie’s voice sounds out in the darkness: “We have a friend called Henrik here tonight. I just wanna say hi to Henrik... and Susan, really good to see you (…) Just friends from the old days. We’ve been going through a lot, we’re still going through it.” Some of the Norwegians turn around and yell, “Is that you?!” Others didn’t hear a thing. “I don’t know. I guess it probably is.” There’s a sense of peacefulness and I just let it linger. It’s more than I can fathom. ( YouTube )

“When my son Tobias was just a boy, I frequently brought home autographs as souvenirs when I interviewed rock stars around the world. Eddie wrote these lines in a split second. I felt that I had just witnessed an artist in the midst of the creative process. The text/poem contains enigmatic references to The Who and Pearl Jam. Plenty of wisdom on life and good, strong words for a boy of just six years. It’s now framed behind glass and hanging on a wall in Denmark.”

Solo interview with Eddie Vedder in New York City and subsequent interview with Mike McCready and Stone Gossard. The day that Henrik Tuxen agrees to discretely facilitate e-mail contact between Eddie and relatives of victims of the accident. (from Chapter 3)  

“Stone Gossard contacted me in October 2003. The accident was constantly nagging at him and he felt a need to reach out to the relatives – if any of them wanted to meet with him. I facilitated the contact and travelled around Denmark and Sweden with Stone and his girlfriend Liz Weber a few weeks later. Pictured here are Stone and Liz at the home of the Gustafsson family in Tranås, Sweden. They lost their son Carl-Johan at Roskilde Festival in 2000. This is where the story begins. Birgitta and Stone in particular would go on to form a close bond and deep friendship.” (from Chapter 5)

    “Just like in New York four years earlier. First a solo interview with Eddie and then shooting the shit with Stone and Mike. Unsolicited, Eddie gave me his telephone number and e-mail address – and he also wanted to take a quick photo of me with his old Polaroid camera before I left. First, a close-up of one eye and then the other; then he asked me to hold up the Polaroids in front of my eyes before the last shot. Exactly the same way that all of the band members (and a dog) are photographed on PJ’s rarity album  Lost Dogs . In a way, it was like joining ‘Club Eddie’.” (from Chapter 8)   Photo: Eddie Vedder

    “I travelled with Pearl Jam for concerts in Florida and Washington D.C. as part of the Vote For Change tour in 2004, an initiative headed by Bruce Springsteen, with a slew of prominent American musicians who launched tours to convince swing states not to reelect George W. Bush.  The mission failed, but it was amazing to be along for the ride. Taken at the concert in Florida, this photo shows Pearl Jam with supporting act Death Cab For Cutie and actor/director Tim Robbins, one of PJ’s close friends. I had dinner with Robbins, Stone and Liz two days later in Washington D.C., and I can say that Tim Robbins is one of the funniest and most anarchistic people I’ve ever met.” (from Chapter 6)

“In connection with the 10th anniversary of the accident, I wrote an article for Gaffa featuring an interview with Stone and Birgitta. This article was later translated to English and posted on the band’s official website, pearljam.com. I took this picture the year before at a concert in London, where we had one of those weekends that you’ll never forget.” – Henrik Tuxen (from Chapter 11)

    “I had just seen the band in Berlin and here, three days later, at Forum Arena in Copenhagen. Berlin was a much better concert. Stone gave me 11 free tickets to the concert in Copenhagen, which had sold out in 30 minutes. So I could invite a lot of friends and family to the concert, including my children. Everyone was welcomed backstage, where we were treated to champagne and plenty of time to hang out with the stars. Here’s my daughter Lulu alongside Eddie, which is quite fitting, since the first thing Eddie almost always asks me when I meet him is, ‘How’re the kids?’ That night at Forum was really special.” (from Chapter 9)  Lulu Høi Tuxen and Eddie Vedder.

    “Having fun with jovial women in Santiago, Chile during Pearl Jam’s concert in the Chilean capital and just a few hours after Marie and I landed in South America in connection with the launch of my first book about the band in Spanish, entitled  Tras la huella de Pearl Jam . Veronica translated the book and oversaw the whole project. Her niece Sara took a bunch of pictures; the girl with the book, Leila from Argentina, and her colorful friend Laura ‘Pink’ from Paraguay are now close friends.”   Estadio Nacional, Santiago – November 4, 2015.

“I saw a bunch of Pearl Jam concerts in 2006 and had a ton of great – and fun – experiences backstage. Here I’m with Eddie, Susan and her boyfriend Martin. Susan is from Denmark and was the photographer on PJ’s first European tour in 1992, right as the hype was beginning to take off. Susan became close friends with Eddie during that tour – a friendship that has lasted. I’ve been to lots of concerts with Susan around the world, and have met with her, Eddie and his bandmates just as many times. Susan generously shared her photos for this book. Thanks Susan.”

Pearl Jam Argentina posts a moving tribute dedicated to the nine victims on the 16th anniversary of the accident, June 30, 2016. 

“All along, the intention of writing and publishing this book has been to honor and pay tribute to the deceased, in hopes that their story may contribute to saving lives when critical situations arise during concerts and other mass events. I had nothing to do with this post and don’t know who posted it. Thanks for the warm thoughts.” Henrik Tuxen

    “I meet Marie Hansen for the first time in New York City as the result of a totally coincidental Facebook post. Ever since, she’s been my business partner through thick and thin, playing a huge role throughout the process of writing and publishing this book. Two concerts on two consecutive days in Brooklyn, where Marie found herself chatting one-on-one with more than few international stars. The picture here is after concert number two: the best concert I’ve ever seen in my life.”  “I’ve played tennis for 25 years, so I recognized that John McEnroe was walking resolutely towards us as we stood talking with Stone after the concert. He’s a real character, and I’m probably a little guilty of the same, so I stepped right into his path, stuck out my hand for a hearty handshake and declared ‘Hi, I’m a tennis player.’ ‘Oh yeah?’ he replied astutely, eyes and head tilted, ‘I’m a guitarist.’ He then asked if Marie was Stone’s girlfriend. Which she was not, leading McEnroe to conclude: ‘Oh, so you’re just a person.’ I’ve always been a terrible photographer, but I still managed to capture the most notorious and cheeky celebrity in the history of tennis, together with ‘just a person’.” (from Chapter 15)  “A guitarist” and “Just a person”, aka John McEnroe & Marie Hansen.
