He had previously collaborated with Mother Love and Green River, both of which were situated in Seattle, Washington, before forming Pearl Jam.

His work has received worldwide acclaim, and he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017.
Carpenter of Stone Gossard was born on July 20, 1966, in Seattle, Washington, to his parents. His father, David W. Gossard Jr., worked as a lawyer, while his mother, Mary Carolyn Carpenter, worked for the city of Seattle. Shelly Joan and Star Leslie Dirette, Gossard’s two sisters, raised him in Seattle. He has spent the most of his musical career in bands. March of Crimes was his first band, which formed in Seattle. His time with the band was brief, but he credits them with introducing him to Seattle’s budding music scene.
Following a brief stint with the March of Crimes, he joined Green River, a band founded by Steve Turner in 1984. Turner loved rock, while Gossard and Ament preferred heavy metal. As a result of this, there was discord in the band, and Turner eventually left. Come on Down was the band’s first EP, released in 1985, and was followed two years later by Dry as a Bone, released in 1987. The battle is on. During the production of their Rehab Doll, tensions within the band reached a breaking point, leading to the band’s disbandment in 1988. Gossard, Ament, and Fairweather established the Mother Love Bone band in 1988. Initially, the band was successful in becoming one of Seattle’s most popular bands. The group’s triumph didn’t last long; one of their members, Wood, who had drug problems, overdosed on heroin and died a few days later. With their record published a year later, his death signified the end of the band. Pearl Jam is his most successful band, which he established with his friends Ament and McCready in 1990. The band has had a lot of success, with awards and tracks that have topped the Billboard charts.
Because his music profession has consumed so much of Gossard’s life, he has spent the majority of his time away from the spotlight. He married his first wife, Liz Weber, who is a producer, on an undisclosed date. Vivian Sparks, who is now a teenager, is the couple’s daughter. The marriage didn’t last long, and the couple divorced despite the fact that no explanation was offered for their breakup. It was then speculated that their occupations in the entertainment world were to blame, as the two spent the majority of their time apart. Gossard later married Vivien Lm Wang, his present wife, and their union has been blessed. Marlowe and Faye are their two children.
Stone Gossard, who was born on July 20, 1966, is 55 years old as of today, February 8, 2022. His height is.8 meters, and he weighs 78 kg.
