Vedder on new Pearl Jam album
Speaking of new albums, Eddie Vedder says that Pearl Jam is maybe halfway done with their new album.

No reveal yet
Dave Grohl is still zip lipped when it comes to who will be the members of Grohl’s Sound City Players. The director of the forthcoming documentary Sound City says the band will have some core musicians and some special guests from the film. There’s a lot of speculation of who the special guests could be. Some names tossed around include Paul McCartney, who Grohl and other members of Nirvana performed with at the Hurricane Sandy Benefit on a song that appears on the soundtrack for the documentary, Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor, Rick Springfield and others. We’ll know for sure January 18th when the band and documentary debut at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.
Soundgarden front man Chris Cornell says fans can expect some old and obscure songs to be performed during their tour, which kicks off January 16th in New York. Cornell says that the band will mix it up between the new songs and old songs because “we’re like that.” Soundgarden will be in Chicago at the Rivera Theater January 29th.
