2009 PEARL JAM SAN DIEGO 10/9 POSTER
ARTIST: Sergio Avenia

SERGIO AVENIA (Sept. 23, 1964 - March 5, 2013)
Sergio and I moved to Seattle from Missoula thirty years ago this May in my yellow Dart filled with his drums and my bass gear and little else.

When I stopped to pick him up, his Mom gave us a giant bucket of home fried chicken, gave him a teary kiss and off we went into the great unknown.

I was lucky to learn to play my instrument with a great musician like Sergio.

He motivated our band,Deranged Diction to be tight and professional, and he gave an original jazzy sound to our basic hardcore structures. Sergio was a huge talent, as good of an cartoonist, piano player and tattoo artist as he was a drummer.

He enjoyed life as much as anybody I've ever known and I will always carry that part of him with me.

I'll miss you, friend.

Jeff Ament

PS Say hello to Max Roach for the rest of us.
