7/3: HAPPY 4TH, LATEST UPDATE.

Posted by Eddie Category: TRUNK REPORT

Wishing everyone a happy and safe 4th of July holiday weekend. My FM radio show this weekend celebrates the 4th with an all new all American hard rock and metal special. Might not seem like a big deal as far as a radio special but think about how many bands I play on a regular basis that excludes. So it opens some time for other artists maybe not played as often too. It is on Q104.3 11P ET as usual and all stations that run my show each and every week usual day and time. Full list under Live & On The Air.

Excited to welcome back WAAF/Boston which starts airing the show a week from Friday from 11P-2A. I’ll be in Boston with Don & Jim at The Wilbur 8/2.

Judas Priest are doing a signing this Tuesday to celebrate the release of their new album at The Hard Rock in Times Sq. Starts at 6:30 and you must purchase the new album from FYE at The Hard Rock to get it signed. It will be Rob, Richie and Glenn and only copies of new album will be signed.

SO much great new music out there. Buy it, support it, listen for it on my shows. Stuff I am listening to now includes Slash, Overkill, Mastodon, Fozzy, Priest, Accept, Tesla, Night Ranger and much more. Great time for new music so check it out.

My debut podcast launches 7/10 via Podcast One. Should have a link to subscribe very soon. www.podcastone.com will also post and you can listen there. More details on guests soon. I will also be answering email from you guys on the podcast. Send them to me via Contact Us on this site and put “Podcast Question” in the subject.

Appreciate everyone asking about new episodes of TMS however when we do them is 100% up to VH1. Right now the latest is not until early next year unfortunately. I have no control over this at all and also wish we did more per year. For now enjoy the replays and set your DVR to catch them all. They run constantly from all seasons. Thanks.

  1. Eddie,
    Still hoping you check out the new album from Teramaze called “ESOTERIC SYMBOLISM.” I’ve been screaming about them for the past couple of years after their brilliant previous album. Really hoping they gain some traction here in the States. Reminds me of Dream Theater/Tool mix… but much better!

      1. Any time. I’ve been screaming about them for the past 3 years or so. I was blown away when I heard their last album, and equally as much with the new one. Found them through the Ernie Ball guitar forum, where the lead guitarist is an endorsee.

        Been sending requests in to Sirius forever about them, with no luck for some stupid reason. I’m sure Eddie is annoyed by it at this point, but you never know! 🙂

  2. Eddie, I enjoyed talking to you on the phone the other day. I’ve really enjoyed the new Night Ranger and Tesla CD. I can’t wait for the new Judas Priest album to come out! Love me some priest. Are you going to interview Frankie Banali any time soon with the digital release of Quiet Riot “10?” I’m amazed how close the new singer Jizzy Pearl sounds like Kevin Dubrow. “Back on You” is probably my favorite on the CD. If you talk to Frankie, tell him to release “10” in CD form! Like you, I love to hold the CD in my hand. I’m excited about your podcast! Can’t wait!!!

  3. You should have Michael Angelo Batio as the guitar guest on TMS.
    While his band’s records don’t warrant a spot on the couch), his 4-necked guitar would be a good visual for TV.

    1. The rumors are out there that TMS is likely not going to be renewed unfortunately. There was big upheaval in the management of VH1. I could see the channel totally changing. TBD but don’t take for granted that TMS will be back.

      IF it is, I’d like to see Bob Daisley, Leatherwolf and the Killer Dwarfs on there.
      Bob Daisley was such a key part of Ozzy’s early solo success, and even if he were just on Skype, it would be great to hear from him. Leatherwolf put out one of the classic 80’s “melodic\progressive\ power” metal albums (probably only second to Queensryche’s Rage For Order, IMO), and recently reunited and put out one of best live albums of 2013. And Killer Dwarfs have recently reunited for shows. Russ Dwarf is underrated rock vocalist and was just in a bad accident after Rocklahoma so would be interesting interview.

  4. Just got the new Priest album via Grooveshark! I’m also planning on seeing them this upcoming October at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, IN. It’s great to hear Priest being back on track, tho no K.K. but Ritchie.
