“I’m working on a song I wrote about Chris Cornell. I made that song finally dealing with his passing and I’m working on a little project that I’m going to do in Seattle some day. I’ve been working on a lot of solo stuff and also working with this director named Thom Zimny on a Beach Boys documentary.”
Mike McCready also revealed interesting facts about The Rockfords and some news on Pearl Jam’s next album, produced by Andrew Watt. Here is what he said:
“We have talked to him and got together a couple of times doing some demos, and it was pretty fun. Just a different kind of vibe. He’s got a great energy” Mike revealed to SeattleTimes, “He’s way into getting good sounds. We also have Josh Evans, who worked on our last Gigaton record, we have a whole other section of songs from that era, too, that I think we still need to look at. So there’s a lot of stuff on the back burners right now.”
