Pearl Jam is celebrating a proud GRAMMY moment that ties together the lifelong Seattle fraternity they’re a part of.
The band acknowledged the big win by bassist Jeff Ament, his brother, Barry, and colleague Joe Spix. The trio – as graphic designers - took home the award for Best Recording Package for the Chris Cornell box set.
Cornell’s wife Vicky also weighed in with a tweet: “Chris would be so proud! Thank you for your incredible work, dedication & loud love.”
Chris Cornell was released in November 2018 and included a 17-track album and 11 new songs, including “When Bad Does Good.” It won Best Rock Performance last year, making it two years in a row Cornell has posthumously been involved in a GRAMMY win.
Jeff Ament said last January that Cornell’s death greatly affected his longtime friends in Pearl Jam, and probably played a role in the gap between studio albums. But their first LP since 2013 is just about ready to go. Gigaton will be released on March 27th and the experimental first single, “Dance the Clairvoyants,” already has fans talking.
