Former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese has slammed the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for leaving his name off of the band's nomination.

"It's just a fine opportunity to see what Pearl Jam has to say in response," he wrote on his personal Facebook page. "Let's see if they do the right thing. It'll be interesting to see the spin that is put on it. I've seen them change a 15 year old settlement agreement just by ignoring its contents and withholding money that didn't belong to them in order to force me to accept the changes. They know how to play the game . . . their way!"

Abbruzzese joined the band in 1991 and exited in 1994. He played on the band's seminal works Vs. and Vitology. Jack Irons, who replaced Abbruzzese and played with the band until 1998, was also left off of the nomination.
