Seattle will be well represented whenever Heart enters the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month. It was previously revealed that Soundgarden's Chris Cornell would induct the classic rock band, and now it has been announced that fellow Seattle music vets Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains and guitarist Mike McCready from Pearl Jam will perform with Heart at the induction ceremony.
Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger has moved to clear up some confusion started with one of his recent online tweets. The musician reveals in a pair of new comments that he is not, in fact, making a guest appearance on the next Pearl Jam record.
Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd recently revealed he was finishing up work on his second solo album, but he's not the only member of the band staying busy during the group's hiatus. Guitarist Mike Einziger has landed a pair of high profile guest turns -- working with Pearl Jam on their new album and with Hans Zimmer on the score for 'The Lone Ranger' film.
While Pearl Jam have been taking their time with new music, it appears as though the immediacy of generating new music is starting to ramp up for the band. Guitarist Mike McCready tells Rolling Stone that the group hopes to have their next album out "this year, for sure."
Pearl Jam fans have been waiting patiently for new music and the band admittedly has been taking things at their own pace, but guitarist Stone Gossard gave fans some hope for a light at the end of the tunnel by offering a timeline during an interview on an Italian radio station this week.
Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament has enjoyed a pretty good career playing bass for one of rock's most successful bands, but that wasn't always his chosen career path. The musician tells ESPN that he had hopes of enjoying a sports career at a young age, but he began to see the writing on the wall in college.
Might there be some new album progress in the Pearl Jam camp? Bassist Jeff Ament revealed that the group did recently meet with producer Brendan O'Brien, which may be a sign the band is ready to resume work on their long-awaited follow-up to the 2009 effort, 'Backspacer.'
While we wait on new Pearl Jam music, frontman Eddie Vedder has found another creative outlet through the big screen. The vocalist, who has contributed music both as a solo artist and with his band to a number of films, is reportedly working on a song for the upcoming Christian Bale film 'Out of the Furnace.'
