On writing with Pearl Jam...
“Pearl Jam is not as obviously weird time signature-type music. But, it’s got to have a certain intensity that Soundgarden has to have as well.
“As far as the writing process goes, it’s really fun because I try to fit the band with the types of songs I bring in. The guys are real specific about what each instrument is doing once we get to a point where we demo a song or we’re recording a song. It’s more about making the parts fit.
“Sometimes that’s when the real musicianship and the intricacies come in with Pearl Jam. With the band we’ve really got to support the vocals and make sure we’re not playing over the vocals.”
