PearlJamOnline.it has scored an exclusive interview with Jeff Ament's favorite drummer (Sorry, Matt), Richard Stuverud.
Oddly enough ... I wrote that opening sentence prior to reading the following excerpt. Still who didn't know? Stuverud and Ament have been in three bands together.
Back in 1999, in the back of Three Fish' tour bus, Jeff gave me a copy of "Moon: The Life and Death of a Rock Legend," an amazing biography of Keith Moon. On the first blank page Jeff wrote: "To my favorite drummer, a book of the most bad ass drummer ever... how to and how not to". It was clearly the best compliment i had ever got from a friend and musical companion... (the other half of the rhythm section). It was beyond cool!
