Happy Birthday Jeff Ament!
Ament’s contribution to Pearl Jam has been nothing short of immense. His incredible skills on the bass have served as the backbone of the band for almost 25 years and his creative sense and direction have shaped many of their songs, including the music for “Jeremy” and “Nothingman.”

    A very influential bass player. Him and Stone would have succeeded in music without Eddie Vedder. Just too much talent between the two.

  • let's not forget the art he contributes that's not always musical...

    Happy birthday. If I may suggest a wish for when you blow out those candles, it's for Ed to pronounce your name correctly every time he introduces you.
