Pearl Jam has another batch of vinyl reissues on tap for November 10th.

Their longtime producer Brendan O'Brien oversaw remixing and remastering of 2000's Binaural, 2002's Riot Act and the band's self-titled 2006 album, which is nicknamed the "Avocado" album for the fruit on the cover. Those will be on sale individually and as part of the Complete Albums Box Set which brings together all 10 of the band's studio albums. Fans who already own most of the vinyl can simply buy the cardboard case for the box without the records.

Pearl Jam will also reissue six singles released from 2000 to 2006 on seven-inch vinyl -- "Nothing as It Seems," "Light Years," "I Am Mine, "Save You," "Bushleager" and "World Wide Suicide."

With so many artists launching pop-up shops to promote tours and new albums, Foo Fightershave decided to do something different.

They'll open a pop-up pub in London on Thursday. The Foo Fighters Arms will be open for one week only and will offer "Foo Fighters beers and exclusive merchandise" to mark the release of Concrete and Gold on Friday.

Donald Fagen is determined to keep his promise that Steely Dan will continue following the death this month of Walter Becker. He'll head out on a Steely Dan tour next month prior to three previously announced European dates at the end of the month.

Fagen, who has six dates left on his solo tour, will get the Dan going on October 13th in Thackerville, Oklahoma with eight shows through October 25th in Maryland. He'll then head to Dublin, Ireland for three Steely Dan shows with The Doobie Brothers.

Fagen and The Nightflyers perform in Portland, Oregon Tuesday night.

Jimmy Kimmel has given a health update on his son Billy, who had heart surgery just three days after being born in April.

While attending a benefit for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation on Saturday, the late night TV host said Billy is "doing well" and “He’s got to have another operation soon, but he’s doing well.” Kimmel and his wife, Molly McNearney, brought Billy and their daughter Jane to the event which raises money and awareness of childhood cancer.

Jim Carrey has made a living off his silly behavior, but his appearance on a red carpet Friday night can best be described as bizarre and even a bit worrisome. 

The funnyman showed up at the Harper's Bazaar's ICONS event in New York and gave one of the strangest red carpet interviews ever. He circled E! News reporter Catt Sadler a few times and then gave some very odd responses to her questions. First he called the event "meaningless" and said "I wanted to find the most meaningless thing that I could come to and join, and here I am." Then he went on a long rant about icons and said, "I don't believe in icons. I don't believe in personalities. I believe that peace lies beyond personality, beyond invention in disguise, beyond the red S that you wear on your chest that makes bullets bounce off. I believe that it's deeper than that. I believe we're a field of energy dancing for itself. And, uh, I don't care."

Carrey then added, "Here's the thing, it's not our world. That's the key. We don't matter. That's the good news."
