Back from almost 2 weeks at sea for broadcasts from Cruise To The Edge and Monsters Of Rock Cruise. If you followed on Twitter I did my best to keep you all up to date with the artists I saw and had on my SiriusXM show from the ships. A diverse mix that included Steve Harris, Steve Hogarth of Marillion, members of Yes, Sons Of Apollo, LA Guns, Faster Pussycat, IO Earth, Carl Palmer, Martin Barre, Tesla, Def Leppard, Michael Sweet, and many many more. All shows now On Demand on the SiriusXM app. Way too much to cover here but it was a blast. Huge thanks to Larry Morand and Mike London for having me, and all the amazing fans and artists I hung with on both ships. I also want to thank the Hard Rock in Tulsa and Hollywood FL for the hospitality around the cruises, and Tampa for hosting my broadcasts on land. Came back to snow and cold in NJ on Friday, so ready for the cruises again for 2019! Seriously was a blast and I thank everyone who helped for the support and all the amazing fans and bands I hung with! Best of show from Monsters airs tonight 8-10P ET on 106 Volume.
Tomorrow for the Presidents Day holiday I will be live 2-4P ET on 106 Volume on SiriusXM (this is a late schedule change). I will not be live for the Monday Hair Nation show tomorrow. That’s back a week from tomorrow.
Sad news on Glenn Tipton while I was away. Glenn, like all the Priest guys, is a good friend and obviously a legend in our genre. Wishing him the very best! I discussed this on radio shows.
RIP Pat Torpey. Didn’t know Pat well but he seemed like a wonderful guy the few times we met. Strong statement by Billy Sheehan telling me he couldn’t see Mr Big go on without Pat. We’ll see how that plays out.
Sons Of Apollo were amazing in their debut, go see them. And LA Guns continues to crush live with this lineup. See them both if you can.
Next appearance is Tulsa 3/2 at IDL Ballroom to host Slaughter. If you are in this area come out and support these shows if you want them to continue. Fun venue and always a good time. See you there!
Headed out on the high seas for most of the next 2 weeks as I broadcast my SiriusXM show on 106 Volume live from Cruise To The Edge and Monsters Of Rock Cruise. I’ll be live weekdays 2-4P from the ship. I’ll also be live 2/8 & 9 from Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa from the lobby bar (free and open to public). I’ll update here when I can.

Great time hosting the Hall of HM awards here in Anaheim. Thanks to Pat Gesualdo for having me and congrats to all the artists. Lzzy Hale turned in an amazing performance and it was so cool to spend time with Bill Ward. Bill revealed he recently had a heart attack for the first time publicly. Get well Bill. He is a class act and I hope to see him back in action with his new band soon.
Cruise To The Edge and Monsters Of Rock Cruise near! See you all on board soon and broadcasting from both!
Back from the ATL Kiss Expo. Great time, thank you to all the amazing fans I met! Needless to say by now you know I scored the first Vinnie Vincent interview in 22 years. I enjoyed speaking with him, only wish I had more time. I’ve spent a bunch of time already talking about this past weekend on my radio shows. I’ll also recap it on my podcast this Thursday and post the audio there. There is also video I hope to have soon of the entire interview. No time to post more thoughts here, but listen to the podcast Thursday for more thoughts and the interview as well. Needless to say the entire experience was very interesting and I hope to be able to do a much more in depth interview with Vinnie soon. Thanks to Vinnie for the interview and Derek Christopher for having me at the Expo. I enjoyed speaking and hanging with all the fellow Kiss fans. Had a blast.
Also saw BLS in Atlanta. The killed it. Great venue too called Centerv Stage. Good seeing all the guys and seeing Zakk crush as usual. New album out now.
Had a great interview with Joe Elliott and Neal Schon today on my SiriusXM Volume show. That interview is On Demand and I’ll post as a podcast next week. Great seeing them both. Journey/Leppard should be a great tour! Also great having Steve Lynch of Autograph and Randy and Felix from Zebra on my Hair Nation show tonight.
Tomorrow night I fly to LA. Shows from NAMM live on Volume Wed-Fri this week. Guests include Lzzy Hale, Rex Brown, Frank Hannon, Keith St John and many more. Then Cruise To The Edge, the Monsters Of Rock cruise! All appearances on the home page.
