Jeff Ament, the bassist for 90s grunge rock pioneers Pearl Jam, was mugged last month outside Southern Tracks, a north Atlanta studio where the band was recording, police said Thursday.

DeKalb County Police said the muggers, clad in black, emerged out of nearby woods in the area and ambushed the musician and another man after the pair arrived to the studio. The muggers smashed the Jeep's windows and pillaged a blackberry and two computers before robbing the men of another $3,000 in cash.
