PEARL JAM Bassist Collaborates With KING'S X Singer

PEARL JAM bassist Jeff Ament and KING'S X frontman Doug Pinnick are collaborating on a project they hope to finish this year.

Friends since 1988, Ament and Pinnick got together for the first time "a little over a year ago," when, along with drummer Richard Stuverud, they recorded ten songs in one week.

"We just locked ourselves up in Montana in Jeff's house and wrote music," Pinnick told Rolling Stone. Pinnick describes the sounds as "a little mellower, not as heavy" as KING'S X, and "atmospheric" and "PEARL JAM-ish."

"We had talked about making music together often," Ament said. "When our schedules free up, we will continue with the project." The bassist is currently on tour with PEARL JAM, with dates set through at least mid-July.
