Mike McCready has been talking up a solo album for a couple of decades now.  It appears as though the closest thing will be on its way soon.

Amazon is currently taking pre-orders on a vinyl-only compilation of music written and performed by Mike McCready from the films Pearl Jam Twenty and We Bought a Zoo called Music For Film.  The album is produced by Cameron Crowe's music label, Vinyl Film Records.

2. Be Like Wind
3. Corner Store
4. Last Medicine Dance
5. Ashley Collective
6. Throwing Arrows

No word on whether to expect this on CD or digital release, but keep your eyes out.  Without an official announcement from Pearl Jam or Crowe, there could be news on the horizon.

Rare Reunions Rule at Bridge School

Over two nights at the Bridge School Benefit, Pearl Jam shared the stage with some old friends and reformed two awesome supergroups.  Both nights, Chris Cornell sat in to create Temple of the Dog and the band played Hunger Strike both nights.

And on the second night, Neil Young took the stage with his old backing band from Mirror Ball to perform Throw Your Hatred Down from that album.

Soundgarden Release New Song: Storm

The press release is not very wordy, and there is no mention of whether Cameron played on this track, but since Pearl Jam was not on tour at the time of the recording, we can only assume it's him.
Listen to Soundgarden’s “Storm,” recorded in May this year with producer Jack Endino in Seattle. Stream it here: http://vevo.ly/Wj2VIU

Happy Birthday, Pearl Jam!

" [...] half of Mother Love Bone, the guitarist from Shadow, a local drummer, and some random singer from San Diego convened on a stage for the very first time. They’d only known each other for days, and had been holed up together making up song after song. Now it was time to audition this singer – this “Eddie” guy – live. So at the last minute, they got themselves onto a bill at the Off Ramp. Someone had the foresight to videotape, and fans have been watching this show for well over a decade."
