Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains singer/guitarist Jerry Cantrell, and others in the Seattle scene have paid tribute to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg after her death on Friday from cancer at 87 years old. Alice In Chains just revealed an unseen Layne Staley album cover.
Pearl Jam posted, “A life that was the very definition of service. May she rest now in peace and may we not rest until we have carried her legacy forward. #RBG.”
Jerry Cantrell said, “RBG/RIP.”
Lily Cornell Silver posted, “‘My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.’ Justice on her mind until the very end. Thank you RBG.”
Eddie Vedder’s wife Jill chimed in, “#Repost @glori.asteinem
We each can honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg by asking ourselves, “What would Ruth do?” Using this as a guide in our own lives will keep her with us.
We can also honor what she said so recently: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
The more we learn about her words and deeds, the more she will remain a force in our lives and the world around us.
She left us a clear and precious legacy. It’s up to us to keep her spirit alive.”
A life that was the very definition of service.
May she rest now in peace and may we not rest until we have carried her legacy forward. #RBG
