Born March 10, 1963, in Havre, Montana
for Pearl Jam
, among others.
the following are his words (in a style that will be familiar to fans who own the Temple of the Dog album), taken from http://thestarsac.net/pearljam/pjamentbio.html
To think this all started 7 years ago...
The Stone Faction
(funny City Rock Guy With A Marshall)
Meets the Jeff faction
(serious Montana skate punk with a basketball)
3 records. 3 tours. The Seattle Sound sub pop loud. long hair.
One thing didn't lead to annother and they left.
Mother Love Bone
2 records. 1 tour...Love Rock. Lots of promise. Talk. Hype.
Then, Andy left to go do his solo record.
Once again, the Stone and Jeff Faction opt out 2 do a new thang
Mookie Blaylock.....Reeenk Roink....
3 new guys. The kiss ass function.
(Master of words. Earth Guru).
(Percussive God. The Quiet one...watch out).
(King of coffee driver guitar color, a blues man).
Fate, Quickness. Hard work. No Talk. No hype.
The comming together of 10.
with coitus & gold-E & a deep bench in N.Y. and L.A.
the journey begins.
like your favourite plant....just add water.
Watch Pearl Jam grow.
Clearly this was written several years ago.
Jeff Ament was a key player in the Seattle grunge scene and its subsequent explosion. He has played with Green River, Mother Love Bone, Pearl Jam, and Three Fish, as well as playing studio bass for several other artists.
WITH PEARL JAM:
WITH GREEN RIVER
WITH MOTHER LOVE BONE
WITH TEMPLE OF THE DOG
WITH THREE FISH
Also, Ament is the creative brain behind Pearl Jam's album covers and art. If you ever find a PJ album on vinyl
, check it out. He does it right.
