Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi blew minds of New Jersey-ians. R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe came out of retirement. Eddie Vedder joined Roger Waters for a Pink Floyd classic. Kanye West wore a kilt – which soon got it’s own Twitter handle (and over 1,000 followers!). Jay-Z was a no-show. And, apparently, Paul McCartney has joined a new band… with the surviving members of Nirvana. It all was part of 12.12.12 The Concert For Sandy Relief benefitting the Robin Hood Foundation.
Looks like Paul McCartney and Dave Grohl won’t be the only duet tonight at NYC’s 12-12-12 Concert for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
Tomorrow, Soundgarden release King Animal, their first album in sixteen years. Tonight (November 12), you can see them perform some of their new songs, alongside some of their classics, from the stage of the Ed Sullivan Theater, home of The Late Show With David Letterman. The show is the latest installment of the Live on Letterman series, which is shown live from the famous stage in New York City.

Other than Jay-Z’s own performance Saturday night, the only other time he grabbed a microphone was when he joined Pearl Jam on stage towards the end of their set for a rousing mashup of their “W.M.A.” and his “99 Problems.” But there were many great performances before that incredible collaboration.
Chris Cornell has shuffled his weekend schedule around a bit.
Did a former executive within the Pearl Jam compound stiff the band out of several hundred thousand dollars? That’s what Seattle police and prosecutors are saying in a 33-count allegation handed down earlier this month. […]
The real reason for Eddie’s nerve damage in his right hand was a recent back injury, NOT ukelele abuse. But that’s not funny, is it?
While Eddie summons up an alterna-Don Ho, Stone’s got a new Brad album comin’ out. My allegiance lies with the latter…
[mp3com-artist]Pink Floyd[/mp3com-artist] fans keep pinching themselves… Can it really be Pink Floyd week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon? Yes!
