OTHER SONGS IN THIS SERIES
OTHER GUIDED TOUR SERIES:
We haven't had any guests on the podcast since before the hiatus. With the Team McCready Global Event right around the corner, I asked friend and organizer, Lisa Cressman, to join me on ATS to discuss this event inspired by our favorite axeman.
Additionally, we explore some of Mike's tastiest licks through his work with Pearl Jam and various side projects. If you own a bucket, you probably want to go grab it and hold it underneath your chin because ATS #76 might just melt your face off!
Pearl Jam will hold a restoration event to encourage fans to plant trees at Hartman Park between 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on March 5th, 2011 to offset the carbon emissions that accumulated from their 2009 world tour.
“Pearl Jam’s 2009 world tour emitted 7,000 metric tons of carbon in the atmosphere and the only way to offset this is by planting trees,” said by a Seattle tree service specialist in a conversation. “However, if Pearl Jam will do all of this by themselves, it will probably take forever.”
That’s the reason why the popular band is looking for volunteers to help them out. So far there are 100 volunteers who have already signed up for the event.

The person who was taking care of this "official" page is no longer running it as of today. Should any recording, shows, tours, etc. actually be in the works we will let you know. As opposed to the prior blog there are no such plans at this time. Until then, take care.
To clarify, the piece I just posted here is not part of the Documentary that I made about Andrew, it's just a short that I found that details a bit of the influence Andy's role had on the music industry that came to follow him. It's a nice perspective, and an area my Doc really doesn't go into all that much, so I liked it and thought I'd share.
Over the past few months, we've been busy jamming, writing and hanging out together - exploring the creative aspect of being Soundgarden. It feels great. We have some cool new songs that we are going to record very soon. Thank you for all of the support!
Loudest of Love,
Ben, Chris, Kim, and Matt
New Recording In the Works?
The other day some of the guys got together to trade new riffs for new Green River songs to possibly record. They are still in the early stages, but the songs seem to be in the up-tempo scale of things at the moment. We'll see how it all goes as it all smooths out.
A Possible Mudhoney / Green River Split Single?
There has been an offer for Mudhoney to do a 7-inch single which may actually turn out to become a split Mudhoney / Green River 7-inch.
And, of course, there has been a push on for them to play more shows.
Let's all keep our fingers crossed on all of this!
A lot of guys have sat behind the kit for Pearl Jam over the last 20 years and all have made significant contributions to the band's musical output. It was suggested some time ago to take a concentrated listen to each. This isn't a debate or a comparison, but rather an appreciation for what each guy brought to the band during their tenure.
Well, a couple of days late but here it is: the latest podcast. A lot more music on this one and a lot less me, which in my opinion is a good thing. Enjoy!!!After you listen, head to our forums to discuss it!
