Polaroids 30 31

Pearl Jam & Polaroids

Pearl Jam lead guitarist Mike McCready gets the picture. In fact, he’s been documenting thousands of pictures since the Seattle band broke through to the world back 1991. And who ends up benefitting from all of this? We do.

Introducing Of Potato Heads and Polaroids, the scrapbook in which McCready has obsessively captured onstage and offhand pics of the experience—the friends, family and fans – with his trusty Polaroid camera in hand. Through years of touring and travels, he has snapped meetings with heroes and inspirations from all walks of life as well as time spent with crazy friends and family, and moments featuring wildly artistic takes on art, nature and architecture.

Sometimes, he even had his pal, Mr. Potato Head, pop in and share in the fun. It’s a “Who’s Who” of intimate group selfies including the likes of Neil Young, Jimmy Page, Dave Grohl, Bono, Paul McCartney, Will Ferrell and Kate Hudson in exotic places from Peru to Brussels to Bolivia. Who says Eddie Vedder has all the fun? This ultimate rockstar time machine needs a place on your coffee table immediately.
