Pearl Jam Had a CFO?

Yep! And he allegedly stole about $380,000 from the band. King County prosecutors say that Ricky Goodrich swiped the funds from 2007 to 2010, spending it on "lavish family vacations, spa treatments, life insurance and pricey California wines." Luckily for PJ, an accountant discovered the missing money and finally the jig was up.

The Seattle Times reports that after the theft was discovered in May 2010, Goodrich repaid about $45k "for so-called loans he allegedly paid to himself by forging another executive's signature" but he was still fired. Seattle police launched a criminal investigation in early 2011 after an audit was performed. No word if Pearl Jam has replaced Goodrich with a better man. [ST]
