Jeff Opens Up On the Powell Movement

This morning, action sports podcast, The Powell Movement, features an interview with Jeff Ament, and wow, we now have a definitive, 80 minute history of Jeff Ament's life.

Let's get this out of the way right away, just like Jeff does.  He does confirm that Pearl Jam is writing.  “We’ve sort of been in writing mode here in Seattle the last couple of months. A typical day is getting together with anywhere from one to four of the guys and making music.”

After that, you're going to be treated a full life history of Ament, which includes:

  • his first job
  • learning to play guitar
  • Deranged Diction
  • Green River
  • Mother Love Bone
  • Pearl Jam
  • firing Dave Krusen, and then playing with him this past year
  • making the first tape of demos that Eddie Vedder eventually found
  • working for the art department for Singles
  • Ames Bros posters
This podcast is worth a listen. Grab your headphones and chill out.
