Never walk with a hot drink in your hand; never leave the house without lipstick; never throw away a good man: these are just some of the maternal mantras percolating in Ros Bloch's head a year on from her mother's death.

Yes, they're still alive. Almost two decades since the band's formation, and 18 years since the birth of a grunge movement that propelled their debut, Ten, into the history books as one of the biggest-selling rock albums of all time, Pearl Jam remain a potent force, despite an almost paranoid avoidance of the limelight.
