Via the good folks at Big League Stew, we bring you Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready's rendition of the National Anthem prior to last night's Mariners game. Jimi Hendrix would approve:
If only my New York Yankees could be so creative with the anthem performance of each game instead of digging up the 35-year-old audiotape of late opera singer Robert Merrill's otherwise great performance. It gets old. So does Kate Smith's "God Bless America". New York is the greatest city in the world with the best arts scene around...recruit someone to do it live!
