According to Billboard.com, PEARL JAM guitarist Mike McCready (pictured below) has joined forces up with ex-GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan, and ex-SCREAMING TREES drummer Barrett Martin in a brand new side-project."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 says. "We're talking to Jaz from KILLING JOKE and I've been trying to find some singers to work on some of that stuff." McCready hopes to release songs by the as-yet-untitled group with McKagan and Martin on his own new label, Hockeytalkter Records. "I have a little record company called Hockeytalkter Records — it's what my three year old son calls a helicopter. I would like to put some of this stuff out on 45. If that happens, it'll be great." McCready previously contributed to a pair of tunes to the self-titled 2012 album from McKagan and Martin's other band, WALKING PAPERS.
