Mike McCready discussed Mad Season and Chris Cornell in an interview with Alternative Nation earlier this month:

I’m very proud of the whole Mad Season Benayora Hall album that just came out. We got on the classical charts, we’re number 5 on the classical charts, which is bizarre to me, and amazing. That was an incredible journey that I started 2 and a half years ago talking to Ludovic Morlot, who is the head of our Seattle Symphony. When he said yes I would like to do this, and do these Mad Season songs, that’s when I gave him the CD, and he came back about a year later. Then Chris got involved, and it turned into something bigger and more magical than I could have ever imagined. Jeff and Stone came, we did some Temple [of the Dog] stuff, I know I’m going back in time right now, but I’m very proud of that moment and that release, that we recorded it. Maybe we’ll do something else, we filmed some stuff from that show, so maybe we’ll do something with that someday.

I’d like to do something else with the Symphony someday, but I kind of need to figure out what that is, and if they’d even like to do that again. I’d love to do any kind of cool independent movies that touch me, that come my way. I’m sure we’ll end up doing some Pearl Jam stuff next year. Like I said opportunities arise if you are aware of them, if you keep your ear to the ground. I don’t know, I’d love to do something with Cornell again, he’s very busy, but that would be an amazing thing too, and I look forward to doing more stuff with my guys too.

    Cornell, still proving to be one of the greatest artist to ever do it. Unreal.

  • nomad

    Good performances, but all the squealing is very annoying. At an acoustic show like that, it’s really distracting and rude.

  • Jesusswept

    I was there and it was badass.

    • Junior Moore

      You all got a 30 song set from the king bro…that’s crazy.
