6/28: TMS, MUSTAINE, QUEENSRYCHE, OLIVA, RADIO, BOOKS, MORE

Thanks to Morgan Spurlock who sent me a bottle of fine scotch to toast the success of TMS. Big fan of Morgan’s work and it’s so cool to have the acknowledgement of major film and TV people that watch the show. Check out Morgan’s new show Inside Man on CNN. Great guy and hope to have him on the shows one day, but he’s quite busy with his own stuff these days for sure.

 

Spent some time at the Jersey shore this week. Love it down there and the recovery from the hurricane well under way. One day when I can afford it gotta buy a place there! It’s a side of my home state many don’t realize is so nice. Many memories for me.

 

LIVE radio show tonight on Q104.3 NYC from 11P-2A ET. Listen around the USA for free to the stream at www.q1043.com or use the free iheartradio app. Dave Mustaine calls in live at the half way point of the show. Live Trunk Nation this Monday 6-10P ET on SiriusXM channel 39 with Jon Oliva of Savatage as the guest. Jon joins me 8P ET. ALL NEW That Metal Show this Saturday night at 11/10C with Dave Mustaine and Scott Rockenfield & Todd LaTorre of Queensryche. If you recall last season we heard from Geoff, now in giving equal time, the “other” Ryche responds. Their new album has just come out FYI.

 

Should have the cities for my book tour to post in a couple weeks. The initial 2 weeks after the 9/24 release will all be in book stores. Then I’ll do many more runs in other places as my schedule pernmits. I’ll also post the list of the 35 bands in Vol 2 here soon. Thanks to all who pre ordered at Amazon already! Yes signed copies of book 1 still available direct from me. Click the banner showing my new book on the home page for info. Unsigned copies anywhere books are sold.

 

Thanks all and have a great weekend!

    Can’t believe the in 2013 I get 2 Queensryche CDs in about 2 months. I have them both on my ipod shuffled together to see if I can figure out who is who. They both have great songs and rock. So glad that metal is still alive. But our community has to buy it up so the artists keep going!! Support the metal and hard rock.

  3. Not enough time with Scott and Todd. Maybe next time you can have on Whip and Ed and give them some quality time. Let them put Queensryche alblums in their order of favorites.

  4. add the queensryche interview to the do over list eddie,it was terrible,n short.ask them why they recorded all that supposed Geoff tate crap over the years????seems as if whip,eddie,n scott,wrote that shit with Geoff??????n also,i don’t want to hear megadeth play slow,so dave,you said playing slow is really hard.try listening to that crap???????????????eddie,don,jim,you guys are slipping backwards,you bash metallicas lou lou,but not super collider???????????????????

    Geoff has been using outside writers on the last few QR records Gerry. That was one of many reasons the band fired him. If Ed would have actually given equal time to the real Queensryche that he did to the Tater last year, more fans might have learned something about what’s been happening. He can add a Queensryche do-over to the Stone Sour do-over he owes people. After THAT lovely bit of tv, folks would barely know they had done House of Gold and Bones Parts 1 & 2,

  6. rythem of hope,written by scott,eddie n m wilton???/the great divide,wilton n tate.sacred ground wilton n tate.falling down,scott whip.eddie,n tate.at the edge,tate n scott,big noise,tate,scott,gray???listen,they have to take some of the blame for putting that stuff out,cause they did.period.love the new ryche with latore.they should have done this right before that cabere crap that’s when they uhhhhhhhhhhhhh,you know .tates done,ryche on,but scott has to start hitting those drums,n eddie slammn bass,whip ripping.scott no more work with poker face,k???????

  7. Hi Eddie,

    I am thankful for your work and for what all of you guys do for Metal and Hard Rock. I love TMS, and I love Dave Mustaine, his music, guitar playing and his song-writing. As a guitar player and song-writer he is one of my inspirations. But you and Dave are way, way, way off in trying to defend the record labels and defending the status quo ante of a monopolized music industry. In a way I am not surprised because historically in every industry there have always been those within that industry who have tried to create artificial barriers to entry, maintain the status quo, and gang up on new talent and innovators. Meanwhile newcomers are told to sit back, shut up, and mind your place. Look no further than what Bill Gates and Microsoft did to Netscape. Or how about the monopolistic, anti-competitive dirty tactics from British Airways that Richard Branson had to fight off in the early days of Virgin Airlines?

    In reality, no one is “born to rock.” It (obviously) takes perseverance, hard work, integrity, dedication, and very often a lot of luck and being in the right place at the right time. What if Dave had just given up on his dreams and stayed quiet after he was kicked out of Metallica? Or just ask a group like Anvil how much perseverance and luck is a factor in “making it” in an industry run by unimportant business people who know or care little about real art and music beyond the profit & loss statement, or the stock price of a conglomerate like say… Viacom, or Clear Channel Entertainment. Do you really believe that Clear Channel is interested in developing and promoting edgy new artists?

    As a musician myself, I certainly agree with Dave on the issue of piracy, file sharing stations (read: bootlegging), and that artists should be compensated for their work. However, with the exception of Auto-Tune, the DIY home software is a great educational, and entrepreneurial and creative tool — especially for us artists who cannot (yet) afford to hire an elite producer like Eddie Kramer or Rick Rubin.

    Are there bs artists and poseurs? Sure, but as you have said about Queensryche… “let the market place decide.”
