Crowe Releases 'Holy Grail' Footage of Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Kurt Cobain

11 September 2011

Director Cameron Crowe (of 'Almost Famous' fame) has released what he calls the "Holy Grail" of footage from the 1990's grunge movement, of Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Kurt Cobain dancing together.

The footage which is from the filmmakers upcoming documentary of the group called 'Pearl Jam Twenty' shows a beautiful moment between Vedder and Cobain as they slow dance together during Eric Clapton's performance of 'Tears in Heaven' at the MTV video music awards.

Crowe unveiled the footage of the singers on the 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' show to a rapt audience telling the host, "This piece of film is really kind of the Holy Grail; this was a piece of film that we weren't even sure existed."

The filmmaker added that while there were rumours to two did not get along; the intimate footage tells a different story.

He said, "There's this amazing look on Eddie's face as the shot is ending, and you see Eddie, he looks like a teenager- he's so happy that he's shared this moment with Kurt Cobain away from the glare of the media."

'Pearl Jam Twenty' is set for release on September 13.
