Mike McCready spoke with Jacob Uitti about The Rockfords, the next plans for Pearl Jam, and his forthcoming solo works.
“I’m working with a director named Thomas Zimny right now, who I worked with on a Johnny Cash documentary and an Elvis documentary already. We’re doing a Beach Boys one. So, I’m working on music for that right now. I’m working on music for a movie called Daft State with my friend Chris Bacchus, who’s the star of it. And I’m doing some music for that. So, I’m doing music for some movies this second”, McCready said, “I’m working on a little project myself that I’m not sure what it’s going to be yet, but it’s something that I’ve been working on for a long time and it’s going to have something to do with Seattle and my role in it and coming up”.
About Pearl Jam, “We hopefully will be touring in Europe in the summer and maybe in the States before that. With Omicron, who knows what’s going to go on?”, Mike said, “I hope we can release some music, because we have a lot of music that we haven’t put out.”
