Had a great live show last night on SiriusXM with a last minute call in from Jake E Lee. You can read some of the highlights in the music news section now. Got more in depth than I thought we would have time for and talked Ozzy, Badlands, and of course the new band and album Red Dragon Cartel. Jake was very candid about many things and did confirm he was “uninvited” from going to see Sabbath simply for saying he’d like CREDIT (not money, credit) for writing Bark At The Moon. Simply amazing and now you know why Ozzy has never been on TMS I guess! The new album is out Jan 28th and he sounded in great spirits and ready for a relaunch that happens officially this Thursday at The Whiskey in LA. I’m honored to be hosting this first live show from RDC and appreciate the exclusive interview which covered lot’s of things in 40 minutes or so. I’ll have him back for more when the album is closer to release. Also debuted another new track from the album with Paul DiAnno on vocals called “Wasted”. See you Thursday night in LA if you are making the show! Welcome back Jake!


This Friday’s Q104.3 show is the first of the year end specials with each of the shows 3 hours dedicated to 3 of the most requested yet underplayed bands in my radio shows history. Hour 1 features Judas Priest, Hour 2 Iron Maiden, Hour 3 Rush. First time I ever did one like this, hope you enjoy it. I am aware the iHeartradio app and stream has been cutting off on Q104.3. I have asked the station to correct this problem if possible. They are looking into it. Remember you can also hear the Q show on all the affiliates and their streams the following weekend. Or become an AA Member of this site and get shows On Demand after they debut on all stations! Cheap and easy to be a member.


This Saturday the annual TMS Christmas bash at Dingbatz in Clifton NJ. I’ll be selling and signing my books at Dingos across the street before the party (no admission at book signing!) starting around 7:30. Party at Dingbatz around 9. Come hang with me, Don and Jim this Saturday. I’ll also have free Schenker tix to give away for Starland!


  1. sharon and ozzy osbourne should be ashamed . ozzy may have once been a fair singer but now is just a wet brained idiot at best , and sharion i believe knows jake e lee was the talent of the band and over shadowed her husband so out of jealiousy denyed jake his just credit , jake e lee is a awesome guitarist and writer and person , and deserves way better than the osbournes . so im wishing red dragon cartel the best and cant wait to hear some more great riffs and leads from the man jake e lee .

  2. Ozzy needs to grow a pair and tell Sharon to knock it off, but we all know that will never happen. Seems kind of petty and small for her to do that to Jake, but it isn’t unprecedented for her.

  3. Awesome! Pretty much my three favorite bands! Can’t wait to listen!

  4. Peter Monticollo says:

    Why not do a Zeppelin special?

  5. Jess Tilley says:

    Great interview with Jake, looking forward to the new album!

  6. Jake could have bought a ticket to see Black Sabbath like any other fan. Just because the band won’t put you on a guest list or give you a backstage pass doesn’t mean he can’t attend the show. I’m sure he could make his way backstage anyway once he’s in the building.

    • Do you really want to go somewhere you were “uninvited” to simply for asking for CREDIT for songs you wrote? Read Bob Daisley’s book.

      • I didn’t hear your interview with Jake, just going off what you said that Jake was “uninvited” from going to see Sabbath for SAYING he’d like writing credit. That didn’t seem to suggest that Jake only wanted to go to the show to storm backstage and demand writing credit. My comment was that he could still go see the show if all he wanted to do was see the band perform.

        • Don’t think he was looking for special treatment but hard to get up to see a guy you shared lot’s of success with for several years and have his camp treat you like that. They can ignore me for giving guys they hosed an outlet, but to do it to the guys who made the music and wrote the songs is sad.

  7. Bill Muller says:

    Looking forward to Red Dragon Cartel. The songs you played sounded amazing. Keep rockin’!

  8. Why does it take 48 hours to post a comment? It says my comment is awaiting moderation. Kinda defeats the purpose of social media.

  9. I love all three of those bands that you will feature tonight. Butt when are you ever going to do a UFO
    feature special?

    • Contrary to what many think my shows are done about what MOST of my audience wants. I personally would love that, but don’t see it being in demand for the majority of the audience

  10. we don’t need ozzy on tms.we need dream theater.mike mangini,john pertrucci.lets go eddie pick up the pace
