3/13: RUSH SPECIAL, MOR CRUISE, RIP CLIVE, TMS, MORE!
In the middle of a super busy run of travel, working on new TMS shows, and of course the two radio shows. This Friday on Q104.3 show will be an all new interview with Geddy & Alex of Rush! I recorded it a week and a half ago and we talk about the new album, tour, old albums, baseball, and the bands future. Don’t miss this all new exclusive interview this Friday. Show starts at 11PM ET. You can listen in the NYC area over 104.3 FM or anywhere in the US via the free stream at www.q1043.com or with the free iheartradio app. If using the app hit Q104.3/NY/Classic Rock. Please note I have no control on streams being available outside the USA. The show this Monday on SiriusXM is recorded. Back live there 3/25. Also I have video of the entire Rush interview. That will be posted first for AA Members of the site, then a week later for all here after the audio runs on all radio outlets. Look for that around 3/25 for members, the next week free to all.

New season of TMS being scheduled now. We will have a new look to the set, new features and a mix of new and returning guests. Once the guest list is set I will announce it. Same with when audience tix are released and available. I appreciate all the guest requests but once again the show is booked based off of who the NETWORK approves, and who is available and wants to do the show in the windows we tape. As usual rock and metal artists will be represented and we will me mixing in new bands with the classics ones as well. All details TBA but the new shows will start airing early June. In the meantime enjoy the many repeats of nearly 100 episodes now running on VH1C.
Very sad to hear of the passing of original Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr. CLive was ill for a long time battling MS. Credit the Maiden camp for always trying to help him and doing benefits for him through his struggles. I saw Maiden with Clive twice. First time I saw Maiden was opening for Priest in NJ at Convention Hall in Asbury Pk on the Killers tour. Then I saw them headline at The Palladium in NYC on the Beast tour. Clive’s role in the early days of Maiden can not be understated. Great player and fun to watch too. Killers and Beast are two of my top 5 Maiden albums, so he will always live on with us through this brilliant music. Condolences to his fans, friends and family. I’ll do a musical remembrance when back on the radio live since this weeks shows are pre recorded. RIP Clive Burr.
Off to Florida tomorrow. Honored to be special guest host once again for the second annual Monsters Of Rock Cruise. This year it’s 4 nights of Mayhem with a TON of bands! It’s also sold out. So hope you have your tix and yes I have my Passport this year (forgot it last year)! Look forward to hanging with all. The cruise runs from Saturday till Wed 3/20. Since there is no cell or internet service i’ll update you when I can and have signal.
