Event generators play a crucial role in the exploration
of LHC physics. This presentation summarizes news and plans
for the three general-purpose pp generators HERWIG, PYTHIA
and SHERPA, as well as briefer notes on a few other generators.
Common themes, such as the matching and merging between matrix
elements and parton showers, are highlighted. Other topics
include a historical introduction, from the Lund perspective,
and comments on the role of MCnet.
