(Newser) – The exec who handled Pearl Jam's "road cash" has been charged with scamming the grunge veterans of at least $380,000 over several years. Prosecutors say Rickey Goodrich, the former chief financial officer for Pearl Jam's management company, used the band's cash and credit cards to pay for spa treatments, expensive family vacations, and fine wines during the years he was in charge of all financial matters relating to the band's touring operations, the Seattle Times reports. He has been charged with 25 counts of first-degree theft.
