Patrick Tang is about as big of a Pearl Jam fan as you’ll find, which is saying a lot, given the band’s rabid following. Tang, 25, plays lead guitar for Atlanta comedy-core band the Attractive Eighties Women (of which Paste associate editor Steve LaBate is also a member), and says his “shredding is definitely influenced by Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready.” He’s seen the band countless times (sometimes traveling cross country to do so), and has amassed hundreds of hours of PJ bootlegs, making him an unofficial expert on the subject.
