While Stone Gossard shared his favorite The Beatles memories and songs on Tidal, Jeff Ament chose the 5 albums he can’t live without (great choices, from Brian Eno’s Discreet Choices to Sigur Rós’ Ágætis byrjun) on Spin.
Jeff – who appeared on the new issue of Outside podcast (listen here: outsideonline.com) – also wrote a letter on the latest Ten Club digital newsletter, read it below.
“Today feels like it could be March of 2020, full of ideas, anxiety, potential, the trucks loaded,new(ish) songs and a tour booked. A lot has changed for most of us.
Thanks for vour patience and your trust in us. Like everybody, we’ve had to make tough decisions, that effect those around us. We’re hoping this pause will make for safer and better shows ahead. Looking forward to getting back out there and feeling your energy and sharing the experiences of these past couple years.
We can’t wait to play the new songs and see Gigaton come alive the way that we hoped. We finally get to see live music again and hang with The Pixies, IDLES, White Reaper and Shame, and the bands on the festival bills. Be safe and we’ll see you soon.
