Join This Pearl Jam Crowd in Wishing Jeff Ament a Happy Birthday

Jeff Ament—AKA Pearl Jam's bassist—was born on March 10, 1963.

Pearl Jam recently announced a string of baseball stadium shows across the US, and last April, the band became official Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, which is pretty rad considering Pearl Jam wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for Ament (and Stone Gossard).

Throughout the ‘80s, Ament played in multiple grunge bands. Soon after their band Mother Love Bone dissolved, he and Gossard recruited Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready. And just like that, we had Pearl Jam.

In honor of Ament’s birthday, join the crowd below in wishing him a happy birthday. And then watch him play an upright bass. Because why not?
