Jeff Ament wrote the introduction to Culture Shock book

A collection of interviews made by Patrick Douglas for Culture Shock column.

The Get It Factory recently published a coffee table style book of interviews from my days covering the entertainment world from Montana and Jeff was awesome enough to contribute with a handwritten intro. The book features six of the interviews I had with Jeff and one with his brother, Barry. Also included are around 120 interviews with the likes of Mudhoney, Soundgarden, Slayer, Metallica, Pantera, B.B. King, The Decemberists, David Letterman, Jason Lee, Ziggy Marley, Primus… you get the idea” – Patrick Douglas.
