All 'bout Metal Music 'n Life

Jeff Ament

Anak seorang pemangkas rambut ini berasal dari Havre Montana. Masa remajanya diisi dengan kegiatan musik dan olah raga. Basket telah di tekuninya sejak SMA. Sayang, olah raga ini tidak dia teruskan saat kuliah di universitas Montana. Sebagai gantinya Jeff menggeluti bass gitar.
Ia memulai karirnya dengan grup Deranged Diction, yang beraliran Punk. Dua tahun kemudian, barulah pindah ke Seattle. Sebelum mendirikan Green River (1985) bareng Stone Gossard, Mark Arm dan Steve turner, ia bergabung dengan grup War babies. Anehnya ketika di puja sebagai pelopor musik Grunge War Babies malah habis.
Berbeda dengan Eddie Vedder masa lalu Ament tergolong mulus. Ia sempat mengenyam bangku perguruan tinggi selama dua tahun, gairahnya untuk belajar kesenian sangat tinggi, sehingga sempat bermasalah sama pengajarnya karena kurang cukup liar untuk menangkap kreativitas Ament.
“Seni seharusnya menjadi tempat ekspresi dan menuangkan segala perasaan kamu. Sedang disana diajarkan begitu banyak batasan dan persyaratan dalam seni,” ungkap cowok yang menyukai seni grafis ini.
Karena kesukaannya sama seni grafis ini, dia lah yang bertugas menyeleksi sampul album kedua Pearl Jam. Meski mengaku kagum sama kemampuan menulis lagu Eddie Vedder, Ament gak tahu menahu proses kreatif itu berlangsung.
“Saya tidak tahu dari mana lagu-lagu itu muncul. Saya Cuma tahu sedikit masa kecilnya. Saya tahu dia suka sekali Quadrophenia. Pertama kali bertemu dengannya, ia pendiam banget dan tampak penuh perhatian,” tutur Ament.
Sementara tentang Pearl Jam ia Cuma berkomentar, “Tambahkan air dan perhatikanlah bagaimana earl Jam berkembang. Yang jelas saya gak mau orang-orang mengingat lagu-lagu kita hanya dalam bentuk video klip sepuluh tahun kemudian.”
Maksudnya, mau lebih dari itu?
