Interpreting the Masters: Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love

Van Halen Tribute featuring Dave Grohl joining the Bird And The Bee On TV... See It Here

In Case You Missed It : Inara George (who happens to be the daughter of infamous and late Little Feat founder Lowell George) is the vocalist at the mic and multi-instrumentalist Greg Kurstin (formerly of Geggy Tah and record producer of too many top selling acts to mention) backs her up, and they’re known as The Bird & The Bee.

Previously they played a tongue in chic tribute to Hall & Oates, but this year its the Diamond Dave era of Van Halen with their album Interpreting the Masters Volume 2: A Tribute to Van Halen on No Expectations/Release Me Records.

To get the LP launch just the right amount of hype, man about just about every town, Dave “That Fkn Guy” Grohl showed up to pound the drums on the late night TV circuit where the duo performed “Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love” in a highly dramatic fashion for James Corden’s show on CBS.

Apparently the group first became fascinated with the idea of doing old Van Halen songs after seeing one of their 2007 reunion tour shows, and had even approached David Lee Roth about being in the video for their tribute song “Diamond Dave”. While Roth politely demured, he was apparently nice enough to send an autographed photo and a yellow top hat he’d worn onstage to Inara, yet she persisted…and thus the entire tribute album to the greatest rock band either Bird or The Bee has ever loved.

For the entire month of August, Inara is touring (sans Greg) with the tour culminating in a San Francisco performance on August 30th at Rickshaw Stop with Aaron Axelson of Alt-105.3 as DJ.

Supporting Inara as opening acts and also playing as her band, will be Alex Lilly and Samantha Sidley. as well as Barbara Gruska on drums, and Vikram Devasthali playing on guitar and trombone. Apparently, not content to sit idle, Inara will also be taking on singing duties in the opening acts, as well. See all dates posted below and you can sign up for the band’s mailing list HERE.
