Mike McCready, Duff McKagan, and Barrett Martin in new unnammed band
Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, and Barrett Martin have put together a new band that has yet to be named. The trio is still seeking out a vocalist as well. McCready describes how the band came together:
“Duff and Barrett and I got together. We wrote some new stuff and we took some of those old Mad Season demos from that [unreleased] second Disinformation record, so we are trying to find something to do with those,” McCready said. “We’re talking to Jaz [Coleman] from Killing Joke and I’ve been trying to find some singers to work on some of that stuff.”
“I had a whole bunch of song ideas and Mike had a whole bunch of song ideas and Duff had a whole bunch of song ideas that were not making it into Walking Papers,” Martin adds. “We decided that we would go into the studio and record them. Right now they’re being sent out to different singers. Mike and Duff are overseeing that because they know everybody.”
The new band has no secure dates for any upcoming releases, but Martin notes it will depend on McCready’s schedule with Pearl Jam.
