PEARL JAM guitarist Mike McCready joined SOUNDGARDEN on stage last night (Tuesday, June 10) at TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht, The Netherlands to perform the song "Superunknown". You can now watch video footage of his appearance below.
SOUNDGARDEN and PEARL JAM share drummer Matt Cameron, who told The Pulse Of Radio back in 2012 that playing for both bands is not the most demanding thing he's ever done. "You know what? I've actually been a lot busier in my life," he said. "When I was in my 20s, I used to play in a bunch of different bands at once and it's just part of the job of being a drummer — sometimes you've got to do a little juggling. But I'm certainly happy to do it."
It was announced in March that SOUNDGARDEN had tapped veteran drummer Matt Chamberlain to fill in for Cameron on the band's 2014 tour dates, including SOUNDGARDEN's upcoming summer trek with NINE INCH NAILS. Cameron will sit out the shows shows due to his live commitments with his PEARL JAM. Chamberlain was briefly a member of PEARL JAM himself, joining the band for some touring in 1991 before the release of its debut album, "Ten". He can be seen in the video for "Alive".
Cameron announced last November that he would sit out SOUNDGARDEN's 2014 tour dates due to his PEARL JAM commitments as well as his desire to spend more time with his family at home.
SOUNDGARDEN's co-headlining summer trek with NINE INCH NAILS kicks off on July 19 in Las Vegas, finishing up on August 25 in Los Angeles.
