LISTEN: From farm family to Pearl Jam, West Seattle’s Jeff Ament tells his story

Jeff Ament is known for being the bassist for Pearl Jam, but his story goes much deeper than that. He doesn’t do many interviews, and none go this deep.” That’s how podcaster Mike Powell introduces his brand-new audio interview with fellow West Seattleite Ament. As noted when we featured Powell’s podcast with another well-known West Seattleite last Labor Day, he usually focuses on action sports, but on occasion there’s synergy with people best known as leaders in other industries, and so it went in this case – though their conversation turned to skiing and snowboarding among other things. You can listen via the embedded player above, or by going to this page on Powell’s website.

    I didn’t know much about Jeff, so I did a quick Google search on his name.  I came across something that made me instantly appreciate him as a human being.  His work to help provide positive outlets for kids is fantastic.  This Vans video showcases part of him that’s really awesome.  Would be awesome to work with Jeff and others to do more projects providing skate parks and positive environments for kids.

    I’ve casually met Jeff on a few occasions, and he’s a tremendously down to earth person considering his day job. His work with rural and Native American communities in Montana and South Dakota is very inspiring. A great example of a person using their earned success and status for the greater good.
