Pearl Jam's bass player digs AC/DC music

Word has it that Eddie Vedder once visited Alberts Studios in Australia to personally ask for a copy of the Bonfire boxed CD set. Apparently, he's not the only big AC/DC fan in Pearl Jam according to a recent interview of Jeff Ament published in his hometown newspaper, The Missoulian.

What music got you pumped up in high school?

Jeff Ament: I used to make tapes for road trips, and the best one had AC/DC's “Highway to Hell” on one side and the Sex Pistols' “Never Mind the Bullocks” on the other.

What about now?

Jeff Ament: Probably that same AC/DC record. I also like Motorhead, Slayer and Led Zeppelin to skate to.
