Pearl Jam And Guns N' Roses Supergroup In The Works
Members of Pearl Jam, Guns N' Roses and Screaming Trees have formed a supergroup. Pearl Jam's Mike McCready has joined forces with former Guns N' Roses member Duff McKagan and former Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin for a brand new, as-yet-unnamed, band, NME reports. Speaking to Billboard, guitarist McCready said the band will be fronted by a host of different singers, possibly including Killing Joke's Jaz Coleman. He said: "Duff and Barrett and I got together. We wrote some new stuff and we took some of those old Mad Season demos from that second 'Disinformation' record, so we are trying to find something to do with those. We're talking to Jaz from Killing Joke and I've been trying to find some singers to work on some of that stuff." Mad Season was the band that McCready and Martin played in with the late Alice In Chains singer, Layne Staley, in the 1990s. The band only released one album, "Above", which will be re-released next month. The band's second album, "Disinformation", was never released. The idea for the new band came together when McCready and Martin were working on the Mad Season re-issue. Martin adds: "I had a whole bunch of song ideas and Mike had a whole bunch of song ideas... 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."
