Pearl Jam have been working on new music, on and off, over the past year or so and have purposely not set a timetable for a new album, as the band members continue to work on solo projects and tours.
When asked about the progress of the band’s latest recording project frontman Eddie Vedder said
"We're taking our time. At some point we'll join forces again for sure, but the band is as healthy as ever and I'm sure it's good to get a little break from each other, but it's nice to – we'll be ready to go when we're ready to go."
Reports that Birmingham Airport could be renamed after Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne have been played down by the airport, according to TravelMole.
Last week, the Birmingham Mail reported that a name change was being considered, following in the footsteps of other airports such as Liverpool John Lennon Airport and John F. Kennedy Airport in New York.
Birmingham Airport confirmed that it would be a decision for the airport itself, with a spokesman adding: "We've no plans to rename the airport so not quite sure where the story's come from but we're certainly not in discussions."
