Phish, Green Day, more help Jimmy Fallon pay tribute to the Rolling Stones

Next week will be a particularly music-heavy one for "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," as a host of artists will be saluting the Rolling Stones' classic album Exile on Main Street, in honor of a fancy new deluxe version to be released later this month. The 2-CD set will feature alternate takes and bonus tracks.

Musical guests will perform selected songs from Exile each night during the week. Scheduled to appear: Green Day, Taj Mahal, Keith Urban, Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell, Sheryl Crow, Phish and Dr. John. It will be Phish's first talk show appearance since 2004.

Rounding out the week, on Friday, the documentary "Stones in Exile" will air during a limited-commercial telecast. The documentary features rare, never-before-seen archival film, photos and interviews as well as new conversations with the band and the artists they influence.
