New Pearl Jam album honors Neil

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready says a song on the new Pearl Jam album “Lightning Bolt” honors Neil Young.

A short article at MSTARS News quotes McCready as saying the song “Yellow Moon” pays homage to Neil, which directly quotes Youngs’ “Helpless.”

“There’s certainly a tip of the hat to Neil. That was a song that was initially taken off the first mixes, but I really, really wanted it on there. I just enjoyed the darkness of it, and I thought I did a pretty good lead on it. I worked hard on that; it’s kind of a simple lead but I wanted it to give the song some brightness, kind of like what David Gilmour always did with Pink Floyd.”

The album is scheduled to be released on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

\"What is it about JJ Cale’s playing? I mean, you could say Eric
Clapton’s the guitar god, but... he can\'t play like JJ,\" Young told
biographer Jimmy McDonough. \"JJ’s the one who played all that s---
first... And he doesn’t play very loud, either — I really like that
about him. He’s so sensitive. Of all the players I ever heard, it’s
gotta be Hendrix and JJ Cale who are the best electric guitar players.
JJ’s my peer, but he doesn’t have the business acumen — he doesn’t have the idea of how to deal with the rest of the world that I do. But
musically, he’s actually more than my peer, because he’s got that thing.
I don’t know what it is.\"
