Not in Lubbock though...

Sigh.

In celebration of a 2015 Summer/Fall North American Tour, VAN HALEN will perform a special concert for Jimmy Kimmel Live March 30 on Hollywood Boulevard. Featuring some of the band's essential rock and roll classics, the concert will be broadcast over two nights, March 30 and March 31, on the late night talk show and marks VAN HALEN's first U.S. television performance with original lead singer David Lee Roth. Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. / 10:35 p.m. Central time on ABC.

VAN HALEN is touring North America beginning July 5 in Seattle, Washington at the White River Amphitheatre, with concerts scheduled through October 2 in Los Angeles, California at the legendary Hollywood Bowl. Special guest Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band will support all dates along the tour. Tickets for the Live Nation-promoted tour go on sale beginning April 4 at www.ticketmaster.com and www.livenation.com with special pre-sale information being announced locally. A complete list of tour dates can be found below.

The special Hollywood Boulevard concert will be a hit-heavy set of songs featured on TOKYO DOME LIVE IN CONCERT, the first-ever live album to feature original singer David Lee Roth. Recorded on June 21, 2013 in Tokyo, Japan, TOKYO DOME LIVE IN CONCERT includes 23 songs spanning all seven of the band's albums with Roth. It is being released as a double CD, four-LP set on 180-gram vinyl and digitally beginning March 31, 2015. Fans who pre-order TOKYO DOME LIVE IN CONCERT before its March 31 release date through Amazon and digitally at iTunes will instantly receive downloads of "Panama," "Runnin' With The Devil," "Jump" and "Hot For Teacher."

Also being released beginning March 31 are remastered versions of Van Halen and 1984, with remastered versions of Diver Down, Women and Children First, Van Halen II and Fair Warning due out later this spring. Each album has been cut straight from the quarter-inch tapes for CD, 180-gram vinyl and for the digital version by mastering engineer Chris Bellman, who remastered the original albums for Bernie Grundman Studios, Hollywood, CA. These albums are being released beginning March 31 with pre-orders available now through Amazon and iTunes now.

Jimmy Kimmel Live is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format. Jimmy Kimmel and Jill Leiderman serve as executive producers. Jason Schrift, Douglas DeLuca and Erin Irwin serve as co-executive producers. Emmy Award®-winning Jimmy Kimmel Live is shot live in front of a studio audience and produced by Jackhole Industries in association with ABC Studios. (CLOSED-CAPTIONED)

Formed in Los Angeles in 1974, VAN HALEN changed the rock and roll landscape forever with the release of their self-titled, 1978 debut album and subsequently produced a repertoire of hits that remain some of the strongest and most influential rock songs ever written that fans will admire for decades to come. With more than 75 million albums sold worldwide, and more No. 1 hits on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart than any other artist, the band's record of achievement is hard to top. The eponymous debut album and 1984 were both certified Diamond, for U.S. sales in excess of 10 million, placing them on an elite short list of double RIAA-certified Diamond Award honorees. VAN HALEN was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.

"You Can Run, You Can Hide: The Epidemiology and Statistical Mechanics of Zombies," is a paper by Alex Alemi & Matt Bierbaum talkign about the way to survive a zombie outbreak. Their paper , submitted to Quantitative Biology states, "The idea of a deadly disease that not only kills its hosts, but turns those hosts into deadly vectors for the disease is scary enough to fuel an entire genre of horror stories and films." Also, "zombism...should be amenable to some of the same kinds of analysis and study that more traditional diseases have long benefited from."

I experimented with the project to see what would happen if I Zombie Invasion started in Dallas-Fort Worth, how long would it take to reach the Hub City?



Walking an 11 min mile, which for zombies would be a fast pace...

The answer : Over 800 hours... What made me smile was A&M and Austin are toast!



Try your hand at the Zombie Invasion!

When I got divorced it was expensive, because it was worth it. I spent many years wondering what I did wrong. issue was I didn't do anything wrong, neither did she. We just grew apart. We had differing priorities and goals. Our goals were the same when we were married but changed as we evolved and grew.

Recently a friend of mine asked me about divorce.

"It's expensive, but it's worth it," came out of my mouth before I had a moment to thing what I was saying.

He then told me his sob story of which I could see the same problems that I had experienced.

I told him it was both of their faults, cut the garbage out and nut up and try to work it out. What he didn't know is I had already given his wife the same damn speech.

They weren't communicating, didn't have the same passion that they had 8 years ago. I told them to go somewhere isolated, with no other human contact to force them to talk again. When they came back, it was like they were newlyweds again.

Sometimes guys, it's about talking to your wives, no matter how painful it may seem.

I'm spending this weekend communicating with my wife.

I'll bring what's left of the bottle when I return.
