Listen to Jeff Ament talk about Seattle SuperSonics: check out his episode of Sonics Forever podcast.
The 1990’s placed Seattle at the center of both the basketball and music worlds. Pearl Jam bassist and Sonics superfan Jeff Ament was right in the thick of it.
Jeff talks with Mike Gastineau about why he became a hoops fan as a 7-year-old, evaluates basketball TV theme music, his (unsuccessful) effort to take Dennis Rodman off his game during the NBA finals, & and the potential return of the Seattle Supersonics. The full podcast is available below.
