Patrick MacDonald of the Seattle Times spoke with Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready and drummer Matt Cameron before the group releases ‘Riot Act’ on Tuesday. Notable on the album is the political track ‘Bu$hleaguer’, which Eddie Vedder and Stone Gossard wrote. McCready said he had conversations with Vedder about using humor rather than rhetoric. “I’d rather have it humorous or kind of vague rather than being completely politically in-your-face,” McCready said. “That’s always been distasteful to me. To enforce your political will is tough to take.” Seattletimes.nwsource.com has since removed the article.
