Ever since the legendary band, Pearl Jam, was first created, its lead guitarist, Mike McCready, could always be counted on to have his trusty Polaroid camera at his side and would go on to document years of touring. Not one to take things too seriously, Mike often brought along his pal, Mr. Potato Head, and would ask celebrities, friends and strangers alike to take a Polaroid photo with him. Of Potato Heads and Polaroids makes Mike's life a little more fun and real in an increasingly digital world. He thinks it'll do the same for you.
Mike McCready 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.
