Pearl Jam Member Reveals Touching Reason He Sleeps In Car


Kerrang have up a new interview with Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, where he discussed sometimes sleeping in his car with his dogs to comfort them.

The article stated, “Sometimes, Jeff Ament ends up sleeping in his car. It happens when a particularly bad thunderstorm looms over his house: Pearl Jam’s bassist will herd up his dogs, head to the garage, open his car door and let them file in. There he will join them, sleeping through the night by their sides if necessary until the ominous sounds outside have passed.”

“It’s the only place my dogs feel safe,” Jeff explains to Kerrang! as they reached him in Seattle. It is but a small snippet of his life, yet this gesture of canine sympathy recently blossomed into the lead single from his excellent third solo album, Heaven/Hell, released this month.

“It ended up being a metaphor for trying to find that place where you feel safe and can think straight,” he explains. “The state of the world and the planet sort of seeped its way into most of these songs. There’s an impending doom.”
