20 Years Ago Today: On April 9, 1994—the day after Kurt Cobain’s body was foundPearl Jam met President Clinton in the Oval Office. You can read all about the encounter in my book Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge.

I’ve posted the first two photos before, but the third—
in which Clinton shows off his The Thinker sculpture to Pearl Jam and the band’s political and community advisor, John Hoyt—has never been published.
