Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready was asked a while back how Pearl Jam has managed to stay together for three decades: [“With a lot of careful effort and talking to each other, I think, and hopefully having as clear lines of communication between each other as possible. I think we take the time to want to find solutions for the stuff that goes on in our band, if there’s issues and problems and things, ’cause I think we love each other, and I know we love each other, and I know I love playing music with these guys.”] SOUNDCUE (:22 OC: . . . with these guys)
