Reports are coming out that Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament was mugged in in northern Atlanta Georgia outside Southern Tracks Recording along with an employee of the band back on April 27th.
It is reported that three masked men emerged from the woods surrounding Southern Tracks Recording brandishing knives. Ament and the employee were robbed of a total of $7300 is cash and goods, including Ament’s backpack which contained his passport.
Though the entire incident was captured on tape, the masks make identifying the criminals very difficult.
Ament suffered several lacerations to the back of his head. It is not believed that was specifically targeted.
We’ll have more on this incident as events unfold.
