TLC are planning a reunion tour that will integrate video projections of late band member Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, reports TMZ. According to a representative for the R&B group, Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas are in the planning stages of a full-scale North American tour that will launch later this year. Five major cities have already been booked.

At this point in the planning stages, it is unlikely that the group will bring Lopes back as a "hologram," like the digital simulation of Tupac Shakur that was recently used at Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's headlining performances at the Coachella festival. The surviving members of TLC will simply project footage of Lopez on a screen and use her vocals in the show.

Lopez died a decade ago yesterday in a car crash in Honduras.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
