Pearl Jam honored the late Paul Allen with a little tribute to their hometown. 

The band took to Twitter on Monday (Oct. 15) to share a photo of a Seattle Seahawks guitar pick with the caption, "RIP Paul Allen. Thank you for your immeasurable contributions to the community and beyond... Rock on."

Allen, who died of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma earlier in the day at 65 years old, was a major sports fan. The Microsoft co-founder owned the Seahawks, as well as the Portland Trail Blazers.
