Dave Abbruzzese was the first to publicly wave the “WTF” flag for not being included in Pearl Jam’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.
Generally speaking, band members are included in the induction if they were part of the band’s longest and/or most successful lineups. Abbruzzese was on Vs. and Vitalogy, certainly a commercially successful time for the band.
As of yesterday, Pearl Jam posted a handwritten note to their socials, basically inviting all former drummers to join them on stage. The Rock Hall was quick to clarify they can all be there, but they won’t be inducted.
