Hope you guys are all having a good week. This past Monday’s radio show was a blast with Zakk Wylde in studio. Zakk and I go way back and we always have a good hang on the radio talking sports, music and more. Zakk and BLS are headed out on Gigantour which is a great bill this year. Among the notable comments were when Zakk said he would be honored to play in Pantera if they ever called on him. But before anyone gets excited remember, there are HUGE issues that would need to be resolved first between the surviving members of the band. As you will see on TMS this week with Rex Brown he no longer speaks with Vinnie, and we all know of the Vinnie/Phil issues. So MUCH would need to be fixed before it ever would get to needing a guitarist. Also thanks to Katherine & Jon authors of Louder Than Hell for coming in. Great book! Also cool to catch up with Steve Blaze in this past Monday’s very busy show. To all those asking me why my show is not on the On Demand app I honestly do not know! I have asked several times. You are the customers so I would direct those questions to SiriusXM. I can only do the show as I do. Up to them 100% what they choose to do after that. Thanks.
Hope you all enjoyed episode 2 of the all new TMS with Stone Sour and more this past week. As you can see we did have a Top 5 and as usual the crazy reaction is everywhere. “What about……”. Kind of the whole point you can only pick 5! Of course there are a TON of people that could be on the list. It’s all opinion and all fun to spur debate, which it does! One more Top 5 coming in the next 6 new shows. We will revisit having it in all shows next time we tape which maybe will be in the Fall. This Saturday another ALL NEW episode (our 100th show!) with Rex Brown, Sebastian Bach and Vinnie Appice on drums! 11/10C on VH1 Classic! Please keep watching, spread the word, and let’s continue to grow TMS. Thanks!
Met with my publisher Monday to being to talk about a book tour for the release of Eddie Trunk’s Essential Hard Rock & Metal VOLUME 2! The official release date in 9/24 physical and digital wherever books are sold. Amazon already taking pre orders at less than the $19.99 list price. This book is the exact same format as my first, just with 35 all different bands/artists featured. Plans are being made now for me to hit the road for a signing tour upon release. I’ll hit as many cities as my publisher wants me to and will post all dates and venues when everything is set. Hope to see you all out there soon! Clearly I can’t get everywhere on the initial promo run, but will do my best to do other stuff down the road to connect as well for my books. Thanks to all who ordered or will order. Excited to have Vol 2 coming and I’ll post a full list of all bands featured in this space very soon.
