Stone Gossard is set to become the first member of Pearl Jam
to release a solo album when the guitarist releases his tentatively-titled "Bay Leaf" on Epic later this year.
Featured guests include Matt Chamberlain -- who's drummed for Tori Amos
, Fiona Apple
and the Wallflowers
and whose own band, Critters Buggin', is signed to Gossard's Loosegroove label -- and fellow Seattle recording artist Pete Droge.
Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron and his side band Wellwater Conspiracy will release their third album The Scroll & Its Combinations
on TVT Records this summer. Cameron's co-conspirer is John Paul McBain, formerly of Monster Magnet
, and the album features a guest spot from Cameron's ex-Soundgarden
bandmate, guitarist Kim Thayil.
