- In Grateful Dead lore, there is no tour more legendary than the band's 1972 trek across Europe. Now Deadheads will be able to re-live the entire experience as the band is prepping a staggering 60-CD box set that will cover each of the band's 22 shows that year. It should be killer to listen to while playing the Grateful Dead video game.

- The Grammys are just a bit more than three weeks away and the lineup of performers has been updated. Usher will perform with Justin Bieber and Jaden Smith; Usher is older than the two of them combined. B.o.B., Bruno Mars, Janelle Monae, Lady Antebellum and Muse will also perform on Feb. 13.

- To celebrate the 20th anniversary of its debut album, "Ten," Pearl Jam is planning a year's worth of fun stuff. There will be deluxe reissues of the (superior) "Vs." and "Vitalogy," a documentary directed by Cameron Crowe and a self-curated summer festival.
