Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready Is A Bobblehead Again

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready has been immortalised as a Bobblehead.

Mike will be performing the National Anthem when the Seattle Mariners play Chicago Cubs on Friday night and the McCready Bobblehead has been created as a special offer to benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America at the match.

“I do not have a signature guitar but this is my second Bobblehead, Who would have known in the history of my band that one of us would be a Bobblehead,” Mike told Kiro Radio.

Mike has suffered from Crohn’s disease, a inflammatory bowel disease, for over 25 years. “It is just insane how painful this is,” he said. “I’d been embarrassed about it before and now I don’t care about it and want to shed some light on it.”

As for Mike’s “day job” he says the next Pearl Jam album is just about in wrap-up stage. “It’s a really great record,” he says. “We are in the artwork phase. We are closing it up, getting close to having it done and having an announcement when it will be coming out. We are happy that we got through process of a two-year on and off process of writing this record and recording. It’s got good energy. I’m excited but I don’t have a date”.

The yet-to-be titled album was recorded at Hansen studios in Los Angeles with Brendan O’Brien and mixed at Studio X in Seattle.

McCready has also been working on a couple of soundtrack side-projects. “I scored a little movie called Fat Kid Rules The World and I have another documentary coming up in August. It’s a documentary on Marco Collins. I’ll be doing some music for that,” he said.
