Young Never Sleeps: Grizzled veteran Neil Young and angst-ridden '90s rockers Pearl Jam have teamed up to record for an album that will probably be released this summer. They entered the studio in January after playing together at both the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame dinner, in New York, and a Voters for Choice benefit in Washington, D.C. They plan to resume work in April, after Pearl Jam return from a tour of the Far East. In order to fully concentrate on the project, Young turned down the headlining spot on this year's Lollapalooza tour.
