SEATTLE, May 22 (UPI) -- Residents of a Seattle neighborhood facing the construction of a garbage facility are looking to native sons Pearl Jam to lead them in battle against the plan.
The rock band's headquarters and rehearsal space will be razed if the Seattle City Council goes ahead with the plan to build a $70 million transfer station on the edge of the city's oldest neighborhood, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports.
"Eddie Vedder's for the little guy,and Pearl Jam would have a lot of clout," neighborhood resident John Bennett told the newspaper. "The tough thing is, they're out on tour for a year."
Band members -- who relocated their facility to Georgetown about six months ago -- could not be reached for comment.
