New Photo Book–Of Potato Heads and Polaroids by Mike McCready
powerHouse Books is pleased to announce the May 2017 release of
Of Potato Heads and Polaroids: My Life Inside and Out of Pearl Jam By Mike McCready
Jam. Not many bands have achieved a status needing no adjective or
description. Pearl Jam has. And fewer still have had an insider, much
less a member, obsessively capture onstage and offhand pics of the
experience—the friends, family, and fans... and one very famous plastic
toy. Luckily for us lead guitarist Mike McCready did—trusty Polaroid
camera in hand.
Documenting years of touring and travels, McCready snaps meetings
with heroes and inspirations from all walks of life; time spent with
crazy friends and family; and moments featuring wildly artistic takes on
art, nature, and architecture. Also: he once rocked a fab grey shift.
And true to form for one not taking things too seriously, Mike sometimes
had his pal, Mr. Potato Head, pop in and share in the fun.
As wonderfully intimate as group “selfies” with the likes of Neil
Young, Questlove, Jimmy Page, Ann and Nancy Wilson, Joey Ramone, Johnny
Ramone, The Edge, Ben Harper, Peter Buck, Paul McCartney, Mike Mills,
Sting, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Carrie Brownstein, Robert Plant, Peter
Frampton, Dave Grohl, Gene Simmons, Bono, Jack White, Danny Clinch,
Lady Gaga, Laura Dern, Dustin Hoffman, Judd Apatow, Will Ferrell, Leslie
Mann, Jimmy Fallon, Mira Sorvino, Tim Robbins, Hugh Jackman, Venus
Williams, and Kate Hudson are, it’s the massive homage to the band’s
fans taken from stage view, in places from the Pacific Northwest to
Peru, from Brussels to Bolivia, that brings McCready’s manic intimacy
come roaring to life.
Of Potato Heads and Polaroids is the scrapbook for our rockstar world—friends, family, and fans. With some wattage. And a great deal of fun and good times.
is the lead guitarist for, and one of the founding members of, rock
band Pearl Jam. He is also a member of side-project bands Temple of the
Dog, Mad Season, and The Rockfords. In addition to Pearl Jam, McCready
currently plays with friends in Flight to Mars, a UFO tribute band which
does charity events. When not performing live, McCready scores TV and
film projects which have included The Glamour & the Squalor, Shameless, Fat Kid Rules the World, Hawaii Five-O, Fringe, and The Westsiders.
