The Denver Post interviews Black Heart Procession singer-guitarist Pall Jenkins.

Q: BHP recently collaborated with Solbakken for the "In the Fishtank" series, and you have written songs for The Album Leaf and Ugly Casanova. Any future plans of that sort?

A: (BHP) has been working on an album with Calexico for a while. It will include some more collaborative stuff and then a couple songs of each of ours that are separate.


Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament talks to the Toronto Sun about getting ready to tour.

"Not only are you away from home, but physically it's hard -- I'm 43 years old and I have to work out every morning, do yoga, get massages and all that, just to be able to play the show every night. Everyone was super excited about this record, including me, so that's why we're going out for 80-plus shows. But this could be our last show here for a while."


My Morning Jacket drummer Patrick Hallahan talks to Toronto's Metro about the band playing "Freebird" in Cameron Crowe's film, Elizabethtown.

“We asked him, ‘What are we going to be playing?’” Hallahan recalls. “He replied, ‘(Lynyrd Skynyrd’s) Freebird.’ We were like, ‘Uhhh ...yeah ... we’ll get back to you on that one.’ We’ve gotten so sick of having the southern rock tag applied to us. And hearing that from Cameron was like sealing our own grave.

“But once we saw it in the script and in the context of the movie, it made perfect sense to us. It ended up being a tribute to the deceased who we were honouring, because that was the main character’s favourite song to hear this cover band play.”
