Jeff Ament: 50 Years By The Numbers
In fact, today (March 10), which is Jeff Ament's birthday, is the first day that a founding member of Pearl Jam has hit the big 5-0. In the last year alone, the prolific bassist has toured with Pearl Jam, toured with RNDM, and released two albums. Every interview he does gives the sense he's constantly creating. What this big birthday calls for is a celebration of Jeff's musical creativity, in the usual stat-heavy, graph-laden TwoFeetThick style. How many bands has he been in? How many songs has he written? How many shows has he played? Let's dive in.
Jeff Ament, born March 10, 1963 in Havre, Montana, has been in bands for the last 32 years. Over those 32 years, he's been in a total of 10 bands (alphabetical order): Deranged Diction, Green River, Luv Co, Mother Love Bone, Pearl Jam, RNDM, Temple of the Dog, Three Fish, Tres Mts., War Babies.
Needless to say, he's been in music for most of his life. 64: % of Jeff Ament's Life He's Been In Bands 57: % of Jeff's Life He's Been in a Band with Stone Gossard 45: % of Jeff's Life He's Been in Pearl Jam
Jeff Ament in Concert: Pie Chart Over the course of those 32 years, Jeff has played a total of 1073 known public concerts (not including the 5-10% of pre-Pearl Jam shows probably still undocumented). For the purposes of this tally, a show had to be played for the public, and consist of at least 5 songs, to be counted. Therefore, many Pearl Jam instore and TV appearances were not included. A look at the pie chart here (with Pearl Jam in bright pink), shows that it's no mystery that Pearl Jam represents by far the largest share of shows Jeff has played in his life (almost 82%).
But live performance is only part of the picture. Songwriting has been a cornerstone of Jeff's musical life as well throughout the 10 bands he's been in. Jeff has written the music for 77.57 publicly released songs, from his earliest days in Deranged Diction to the present moment with Pearl Jam and RNDM. How was that figured? Co-written songs were split by fraction (eg. if Jeff and Stone and Mike are credited for a certain song's music, that was included as .33 by Jeff). Looking at songs' music Jeff wrote by band, it's clear that most of his songwriting has been for Pearl Jam (nearly 30 songs), with his solo work a fairly close second at 21 songs.

Jeff Ament: % of Pearl Jam Album Music Line Graph Narrowing the songwriting focus to Pearl Jam, Jeff's contribution to the band's catalog (without which we wouldn't have "Jeremy," "Nothing As It Seems" or "Lowlight" to name just three) have meant he's written between 9 and 33.56% of each Pearl Jam album's music (and 15.67% of non-album studio originals).

Since 2002, it's been a toss up for Jeff - hat-wearing or hatless. Feel a graphic coming on? Here it is…

Hats, hatless, goofing in "Singles," and making coffee in Seatle aside, what it all comes down to for Jeff all these years is music…
And if Jeff Ament was able to accomplish all of this in the past 50 years, here's a toast to what is sure to be lots of music of the decades to come. Happy birthday, Jeff.

The Times' chief pop and rock critic, Will Hodgkinson, pointed out both those artists' influence on Green River, Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and guitarist Stone Gossard's early band together.
Ament and Gossard went on to form Mother Love Bone, a band that narrowly missed its chance at glory.
Distraught but still ambitious, Gossard and Ament regrouped as Temple of the Dog and recruited Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder; Cornell eventually drifted away with another band, a little troupe called Soundgarden, and Temple's distilled lineup became Pearl Jam.

Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament as well as 1 other member of Mother Love Bone went on to become Pearl Jam less than a year after that show, picking up Eddy Vedder as the lead vocal.

Jeff Ament and Mike Lull chose the local 826 Seattle, recognizing the need for young people to have artistic outlets.
"Jeff and I are musicians who benefited from any and all arts mentors who were willing to take us on," said Lull.
"826 Seattle represents the best of local writers and artists nurturing our young writers at a time when the creative arts are being pushed out of our schools," says Ament. "The proceeds from my two hand-painted basses will be a small gift to help with everyday operations at 826, keeping the computers working and publishing poetry and stories by the best of Seattle's youth."
"This auction could not come at a better time. 826 Seattle, fresh from winning a national award (from the White House!), is in an amazing position to increase our work all over the Puget Sound area. These basses, hand painted by Jeff and created just for 826 Seattle by he and Mike Lull-- will allow us help so many more kids.
Jeff Ament personally chose all custom colors, finish, and wood configurations. The JAXT4 comes with a metal (select models only) pickguard engraved with an Ament designed T-bass logo, Jeff's signature on the headstock along with a special Mike Lull logo designed by Jeff to be used only on his signature model.
