Eddie obviously finished out his time in Europe with a little surfing off the Portugal coast. God, that water looks nice.
There are rumors that Pearl Jam will be taking some time off so that Matt can tour with Soundgarden (which in turn, spur rumors that we might get more side project tours), but there also rumors that Pearl Jam will be hitting South America before the year is out.
Official sources are pretty quiet right now, but don't lose heart. Whether it's more touring or the release of an EP or a Vs. reissue, surely there is more great news in our future. Until then ...
