So, thanks to certain other blogs I write, I sometimes get e-mail from record company marketing people trying to "create a buzz" on blogs for their acts, often to the point of supplying a leak or .mp3 of an upcoming release, all in the hope of my posting it and spreading the word.

Last week, I got an e-mail from a Sony/BMG rep offering me an "unrestricted, free download" of Pearl Jam's new single (if you really want it, it's on their website, too). As I laughed and hit the delete key with glee, it occurred to me:

Pearl Jam have finally gotten to the point where they can't even GIVE THEIR MUSIC AWAY FOR FREE.
