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.

Trust me when I tell ya, “The Lower End” was second to none. I know you’re waiting to hear who and where. Well, let’s take a panoramic view of “The Lower End” from left to right, starting with the Cook brothers, Robert and Samson. Samson onto the top level military academy, Rickie Merrit, aka “The Voice,” Cecil Tart, aka “The Godfather,” Dane Tart, aka “Mitt,” and one of the Valley’s greatest ever athletes (Just ask Ken Griffey Sr.), Ed Tart, aka “Seeall” (known him 50 years and don’t know why we call him that or how he spells it), but I know he could knock the cover off a ball, Homie, aka “The Author,” Dwayne Price, aka “Cool,” aka “Cuz,” Daniel Ellis, aka “Rock,” aka “The Mayor,” the Pearson brothers Mike, Tyrone and Junior, yours truly aka “Billy Neal from the Hill–never work and never will,” Ronnie Towler, aka “Toes,” Francis Merrit, aka “The Quiet One,” Rodney Merrit, aka “Big Money,” and last but not least, Dwight Law, aka “Tight,” aka “The Guy Keeping it all Together!” By now you know I’m talking about the lower end of Donora, down by the steel mills across from the railroad tracks.

Pittsburgh’s Jared Wilson-Frame (0) shoots for three over McNeese State’s Jacob Ledoux in the first half of an NCAA college basketball game, Saturday, Dec. 16, 2017, in Pittsburgh. (Keith Srakocic/Associated Press)PITTSBURGH (AP) _ In the first half against McNeese State on Saturday afternoon, Pittsburgh couldn’t get going on offense and was without senior lead Ryan Luther, who missed the game with a foot injury.In the second half, junior Jared Wilson-Frame stepped into the void as both a vocal leader and a volume scorer, scoring 16 of his 19 points after the break to lead Pitt to a 72-51 win.Both teams struggled from the floor in the first half when they went a combined 15 for 65 (23 percent). McNeese State took a 10-3 lead and it took the Panthers (6-5) much of the first half to battle back.Wilson-Frame, a junior college product in his first Division I season, got things going with a second-half hot streak from downtown. He was 5 of 7 from 3-point range and 7 of 11 overall.“Jared’s leadership was terrific today and I really think that’s what enabled him to play the way that he did,” Pitt head coach Kevin Stallings said. “He was talking in at halftime, talking on the way out of the locker room. He was the guy that was bringing the energy for us today.”After the break, Wilson-Frame went on a roll. He went on a personal 13-5 run to push the Pitt lead from five at the break to a more-comfortable 13. As a team, Pitt shot 16 of 27 from the floor and 8 of 14 from beyond the arc in the second period.“We had great shots when they made their run,” McNeese State head coach Dave Simmons said. “Those are shots we can finish. . We couldn’t stay close enough and the game just got a little bit lopsided.”James Harvey led the Cowboys (2-7) with 14 points. Quatarrius Wilson had 11 points and 10 rebounds.BIG PICTUREMcNeese State had one chance this regular season to face a major-conference opponent, and the Cowboys acquitted themselves well. Coming off three straight losses, the Cowboys got off to a hot start, leading until the 10:44 mark of the first half.Pitt’s young team features seven freshmen and just two seniors, so playing without Luther provided the Panthers with a glimpse of the future, especially at forward. Brown made his fourth career start and played a career-high 24 minutes. Fellow freshmen Peace Ilegomah also set a new career mark with 16 minutes played.INJURY UPDATELuther missed the game and is expected to be out “at least” a couple of weeks with a right foot injury, according to head coach Kevin Stallings.It’s the same foot that Luther injured last season, when he missed 12 games with a stress fracture, but this injury is to a different metatarsal and is a stress reaction, rather than a fracture.Luther is averaging a double-double on the season with 12.7 points and 10.1 rebounds per game. He is Pitt’s leader in points, rebounds, blocks and steals. He is expected to be re-evaluated in two weeks.STAT OF THE NIGHTIn Luther’s absence, the Panthers utilized a team rebounding mentality that saw Terrell Brown (seven) and Parker Stewart (eight) each set career highs. Shamiel Stevenson also grabbed eight boards, while Wilson-Frame had five.“(Luther) averages a double-double. It’s kind of hard to replace that,” Wilson-Frame said. “We knew it was going to have to be multiple people putting in that work that he does as a collective group.”UP NEXTMcNeese State returns home to face Texas College on Tuesday. The Cowboys are undefeated at home this year, but have played just two games there, starting the year with seven of their first nine on the road.Pitt continues a nine-game homestand with a game against Delaware State on Tuesday. The Hornets have not beaten a Division I opponent this season.
