A Pearl Jam fan had his nose broken by PJ's bass man Jeff Ament last week. It was not some on stage scuffle, or even a back stage rock and roll incident though.. It was actually a what the fan describes as a rough game of basketball. Well that's.. Still.. Kind of exciting. Right?
Sherif Hassan tells Australia's Triple J that Ament actually broke his nose during the pick-up game in New Zealand, which also included Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler. Hassan says Ament made up for the broken nose by giving him and some friends tickets to the event and backstage passes. He says the injury didn't bother him as much after he spent some time hanging out with New Zealand singer Lorde between shows and got a shout out from Eddie Vedder during Pearl Jam's performance.
