I remember a tour where we played 50 cities in 56 days. We also went to Europe a couple of times.
We completed and released ""No Code"" in 1996. We began some off and on touring for that release.
I began hearing rumors of apossible recording session with Neil Young. I was a huge fan of Neil's.
I finished the recordings I had started with Eleven. Matt Cameron joined for the rest of those sessions.
I began both auditioning with Pearl Jam and recording for Eleven. In the fall of 1994, I joined Pearl Jam.
We got a chance to go and play in some places that the usual European tour by an American band didn't go to.
""Yield"" was completed in 1997 and released in 1998. In the spring of 1997, I had made a decision to stop taking medications that I had been taking daily since 1988.
I began the process of recording myself seriously in the fall of 1999. If I could finish an album of my own music, I would. Five years later I am happy to say I have.
In January of 1995, my family and I moved to Seattle. Pearl Jam did the first of their live radio broadcasts, Monkey Wrench Radio, along with many other Seattle musicians.
After wrestling with myself for six months, I began medical treatment. During that time I started a band with some friends of mine called Jack's Car, but that didn't last.
