Chris Cornell has added a second Los Angeles date to his Songbook tour. He will play on May 5th at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre. The presale is tomorrow.
Crowe calls it “our equal-part tribute to Bob Dylan’s ‘Don’t Look Back’ and The Who’s ‘The Kids Are Alright.’ When I first moved to Seattle in the mid-’80s, that now-hallowed music scene was starting to come together and I was fortunate to have a front-row seat to the formation and the early shows of Pearl Jam. We gave them jobs on ‘Singles’ to keep the band afloat.
“They became good friends of mine, and about 10 years ago we started talking about a project that would use all the archival stuff the band had never shown to the public. The time finally came to tell that story. Jeff Ament, the bassist and creative architect of the band in many ways, said to me, ‘I’m expecting to learn things about our little band that I never knew. I hope it’s a little bit like group therapy.’ ”

Great song, sounds a little bit like Nirvana.

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder was interviewed on a Phoenix radio station a couple of days ago, click here to download it. (ripped by LOV2ROCK from the PearlJam.com forums)
Eddie said the ukulele was the first instrument he ever picked up. He said he’s trying to put together a batch of ukulele songs, and he said it might even be released sometime soon.

“We had Krist Novoselic come in and play bass [on the song], and I’m not exactly sure what the song’s about, but to me, it seems there’s definitely some references about Kurt Cobain, and it’s one of the most primal, raw things the Foo Fighters have ever done, and I think it’s one of the best tracks on the record.”

Above is a new photo of Courtney Love in London. Here a quote from a Dailymail.co.uk article from Courtney:
She says: ‘I am the smoker and the curser, but I am trying to learn about taking care of myself. I have friends that are growing old and freaking out and I am, like, getting hotter.’

Join in Cascade Land Conservancy’s Seattle-Area PJ Carbon Mitigation Events
Pearl Jam partnered with Cascade Land Conservancy (CLC) to mitigate carbon emissions from the band’s 2009 world tour. This partnership utilizes CLC’s Green City Program to mitigate carbon through the restoration of 33 acres of urban forests in Seattle, Kent, Kirkland and Redmond.
CLC invites you to join in two upcoming events that will kick off several volunteer projects to take place with this partnership:
1) Saturday, February 26 at Discovery Park in Seattle
2) Saturday, March 5 at Hartman Park in Redmond
Both events last from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Crews have been out working hard to remove all of the invasive plants at the Discovery and Hartman sites- and now they are ready for some extra hands to help in planting native trees and shrubs. Dress for the weather and come prepared to get your hands dirty. Long pants and sleeves, sturdy shoes and a water bottle are highly recommended. Coffee and snacks will be provided.
For more information on these events or to register online, click here.

Chris Kornelis of SeattleWeekly.com has a new article up titled “Soundgarden- Band or Business?” that is critical of the band’s reunion. Here are a couple of short excerpts from the article, including a reponse from Soundgarden’s publicist.
So is Soundgarden once again a working band, or still just a business? When asked what gives with Cornell’s solo tour before a full Soundgarden run, the band’s publicist says, “They posted some photos on their site that may give you a hint!”
It’s not too late for them to make good on the reunion. Cornell’s solo tour wraps up before the summer-festival season is in full swing. And after being courted by—yet turning down—Sasquatch! last year, perhaps the band has reconsidered for 2011.
GrungeReport.net still firmly stands behind it’s report from last week that the band are working on new material.
