9/3: LATEST UPDATE ON ALL THINGS HAPPENING

This is a letter going out to my email data base today. In case you aren’t on the mailing list posting here as well:

Hope everyone had a great Summer! For me it was by far the busiest I have ever had with nine straight weekends on the road and all over the world. Did a combination of appearances, book signings, hosting gigs, and live shows with Don & Jim. Even went to Bogota to visit the amazing South American fans and speak at a conference. So many great moments that are impossible to recap here. If you follow on Twitter or read the Trunk Report blog on the site or check my FB page I’m sure you saw the photos and stories as it unfolded. Just a blast and not done yet! I have upcoming appearances in NJ, Houston, Louisiana and more TBA. Everything confirmed is on the home page of the site as usual.

I also launched my first podcast a couple months ago and it has been a great success thanks to you guys! Appreciate all the artists that made time for interviews such as King Diamond, Judas Priest, Brian May, Night Ranger, Blitz from Overkill and many more.

Comments

  1. Can’t wait for the new podcast tomorrow with Mad Anthony! Michael Anthony has been my favorite bass player since ’78, and still is! Chris Squire, John Deacon, John Paul Jones, Geddy Lee, Billy Sheehan, Tom Hamilton, love ‘em all, but IMO, Mikey’s the best! :)

    • I doubt John Deacon would ever happen. The guy’s been a media ghost since he stopped playing with Queen in the late 90′s, and avoids the spotlight like a vampire avoids sunlight. Although interestingly, he’s still active in the band behind the scenes according to Brian May. For instance, he handles their finances.

      But you never know. Eddie got Axl Rose out of nowhere. Twice.

      • Joe Pensanti says:

        Deacy is sorely missed. His absence is the reason that I did not want to see Brian, Roger and Adam this Summer. Nobody can replace Freddie, but John Deacon added that special something to Queen that cannot be ignored.

    • Thank you Eddie, greatest podcast yet! Finally, a in-depth interview with Michael Anthony. Well, the first one I’ve heard, other than TMS, but this one pretty much answered all my questions. As much as Mikey possibly could! Always takes the high road, always! I love all the projects Mikey’s been doing with Sammy over the last 10 years or so, but like most, I would absolutely love a reunion with Mikey, Dave, Al & Ed, it might not sound like ’78 – ’84 again, wouldn’t matter, it would still be Van Halen and it would still be great! :)

  2. Eddie,

    Any news on Aces tour? Wondering since he’s putting a band together, so just a few shows or a real tour? Get him to Hollywood Hard Rock, it would be a great venue for him and he doesn’t come to south Florida since probably when he was with Kiss. I’m a big critic of him usually, but the guy has put out a great album, so would love to see him live…

  3. Taskerofpuppets says:

    Congratulations on your success, you smell terrific! Seriously, doing an awesome job Eddie. Hope to see you in Portland, OR again. Looking forward to Michael Anthony’s interview, the only true bass player Van Halen ever had. Peace!

  4. Yes, GO GIANTS!!!

    Dana from here :)

  5. I want all you Giants fans to enjoy the anticipation while it lasts, and I want all you Seattle fans to sit tight for the inevitable decline. The San Francisco 49ers are coming for all you people.

    • Mark,

      Leave my Giants out of this-LOL! Remember we had to topple your team to advance to the Super Bowl. We did, Eli took a massive beating and kept going. We are in a transition year, so let’s just leave it at that :)

      Go G-MEN!

      Dana :)

      • Mark Ellis says:

        I do remember that awful year, when the Giants got past us at Candlestick, and went on to win it all.

        • Mark,

          While I realize that was a low point for you, and I completely understand why, that was a turning point for me in regards to how I viewed Eli Manning. In that one game, Manning earned all my respect and removed any past grievances that I had with him as a QB. Trust me, had that been Tom Brady, whom I also admire as a player, he would have been crying like an infant to every ref on the field. Eli took those hard knocks like a man, got up, composed himself and kept going. An extremely commendable performance.

          I have no problem with 49′ners, and actually like them along with the Steelers and the Packers. All my back up choices should the Giants ever be out of contention.

          Cheers,
          D :)

          • No real Giants fan has cute little “back up choices.”

          • Thanks for judging me and telling me what kind of Giants fan I am, I am sure the entire organization agrees with you :roll: You do know that the Mara’s and the Rooney’s are related, right?

            Also, for the record, my comment was in response to Mark. So, let’s end it here.

  6. What’s the deal with Doro? I don’t get it

  7. Really enjoyed today’s podcast with Michael Anthony. My jaw dropped wide open when he said he hasn’t spoken to EITHER Eddie or Alex in TEN YEARS! INSANE!!!

  8. 49ers don’t scare anyone this season with all of their offseason losses, especially on the defensive line. Are they going to renew Harbaugh’s contract or let him walk?

    • Harbaugh will do what he wants to do, and he’s been great in SF. Everybody knows that the NFC Championship game was the Super Bowl last year. And he got us to the SB the year before. I’ll stack that up against any team but the Hawks and Ravens in those years. Yes, there’s been some line-up changes, but when the playoffs roll around, we’ll be there, gangbusters.

  9. My teams been the STEELERS since I was little,but I do root for the GMEN on the NFC side,love to see the cowgirls fail miserably,as long as jerry jones is GM NO WORRIES,soon he’ll be wearin a jumpsuit like AL DAVIS used to..Also CRYBABY BRADY losing those 2 great SUPER BOWLS always earns my respect…Playing really poised when it counts far outweighs the interceptions for ELI lately,he’s trying too hard to make it happen….Best wishes to EDDIE and DANA,and all other NY GIANTS FANS… on this upcoming season of NFL FOOTBALL, PS SAW WINGER/FIREHOUSE LAST NITE.GREAT SHOW,GREAT CROWD!!! KIP,REB AND THE REST OF THE WINGER CREW VERY UNDERATED!! CJ SNARE STILL HAS THE PIPES ALSO…

    • Thank you JC,

      I feel the same about the Steelers :) When I was little, my two teams were the Steelers and the Cowboys. I even have a Tony Dorsett jersey (I still think he was a phenomenal player). But thankfully, I outgrew the Cowboys.

      Best wishes to you as well and all the other Steelers fans as well.

      D :)

  10. KIP BROUGHT UP A 15 YEAR OLD KID FROM THE CROWD And LET HIM PLAY BASS FOR VH’S “AIN’T TALKIN BOUT LOVE” TOTALLY COOL!!!!!

Speak Your Mind
