Had a great chat last night with Tom Keifer of Cinderella on the SiriusXM show. Tom is having a blast promoting and working in his new band for his solo tour. Outside of the Monsters Of Rock cruise Cinderella will be taking a break from touring while Tom works the solo album coming out in April, but he did not rule out a possible new Cinderella album at some point. Hard to believe almost 20 years since Still Climbing.
Also got a call from Bobby Blotzer who was listening to the show live and checked in. Blotz said Ratt is back full on and has more gigs besides Rocklahoma to announce soon. He also confirmed Juan is back in full time and they are working on new music. He joked that I need to proof read Pearcy’s new book so that things don’t blow up once it comes out! Great to hear from Blotz and even better to know this band is getting busy again. Bobby also added that he left Queensryche because Ratt was going to be busy and he also felt his style of playing might not have been the best fit for that band once he started to listen.
Headed into NYC now to record an interview with Geddy & Alex from Rush! Heard from the guys that they were in town and always appreciate them making time to get together. I’ll have audio of our conversation in an FM show coming soon as well as some exclusive video of the conversation here on the site soon. More details and photos after I do the interview later today.
