Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture is opening a Pearl Jam exhibit

PEARL JAM’S JEFF AMENT COMMISSIONS STATUE OF MOTHER LOVE BONE’S ANDREW WOOD FOR SEATTLE MUSEUM
This Saturday, Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture is opening a Pearl Jam exhibit in honor of the band’s just-launched U.S. stadium tour. In addition to various pieces of PJ history, including instruments, props, artwork and lyrics, the exhibit will pay homage to honor another Seattle music icon: late Mother Love Bone frontman Andrew Wood. Inside the museum, you’ll find a nearly eight-foot-high, bronze statue of Wood. According to Rolling Stone, Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament commissioned the monument himself. Ament, along with Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard, played in Mother Love Bone alongside Wood. Wood, known for his flamboyant stage presence, died in 1990 of a drug overdose, just days before Mother Love Bone’s debut album, “Apple,” was scheduled to be released.
