The album of Van Halen covers is the follow up to 2015’s Hall & Oates tribute, Recreational Love, and features Beck on a rendition of “Hot For Teacher”.With Grohl holding down a hard-hitting beat, George lays down a tender vocal touch on “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” backed by Kurstin’s energetic work on the piano. Watch The Bird and the Bee offer up their rendition of Van Halen’s 1978 tune with Dave Grohl on The Late Late Show with James Corden below:The Bird and the Bee ft. Dave Grohl – “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” [Video: The Late Late Show with James Corden]Kurstin shared his thoughts on the forthcoming album in a press release. He explained,When I want to listen to hard-rock music there’s still nothing that hits me like they do. Every time I hear them it takes me back to when I first found them on the radio, and it felt so dangerous to me—like they were from a whole other world. It would be so great if people who would never usually listen to Van Halen heard this record, and then ended falling in love with them too.The duo will embark on a 15-date tour in support of their Interpreting the Masters Volume 2: A Tribute to Van Halen release, which will include a tour-opening performance at Los Angeles, CA’s John Anson Ford Theater on August 2nd. Grohl and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, Nine Inch Nails) are set to join the duo in L.A.For a full list of The Bird and the Bee’s upcoming tour dates, ticketing, and more information, head to the band’s website.last_img read more

Authorities blow up 200-ton boulder that was blocking traffic in Oregon

first_img Related iStock/Thinkstock(PORTLAND, Ore.) — A giant boulder stretching nearly 12 feet high and weighing about 200 tons was totally blocking an Oregon highway until it was removed Friday, thanks to some dynamite.According to ABC affiliate KATU-TV in Portland, Oregon, several huge rocks fell onto and alongside Highway 138E in southwestern Oregon overnight Thursday. One particularly big boulder was blocking the scenic byway.A local company was called in to blow up the offending rock, and a dynamite blast reduced the giant stone to rubble.In the aftermath of the explosion, there is still a lot to be done, state officials said.“More cleanup work and paving is necessary Friday and through the weekend, if not longer,” the Oregon Department of Transportation told KATU.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
