Hope everyone is having a great week so far. On TrunkNation on SiriusXM Volume it’s been a fun week for sure . Today my friend Ben Weinman from Dillinger Escape Plan/GTO sat in, yesterday comic and friend Dean Delray. It’s so much fun not only having artists on, but also friends that are fellow rock freaks! Tomorrow Sebastian Bach joins me in studio to talk about his new book. It’s always a blast when Bas and I get together so don’t miss this one. As usual TrunkNation on Volume 106 is live 2-4P ET with a replay 9-11P ET every day!
Tracii Guns and John Corabi joined me as guests Monday on the Trunk Nation show on Hair Nation. Tracii did confirm that Phil Lewis has left the Steve Riley LA Guns and now will join with him full time in that LA Guns. Also coming over from the Steve version of the band is guitarist Michael Grant. I’m not sure where this leaves Steve but he is clearly odd man out here and I wish him well. He was on my show recently and said he’d love to get a WASP reunion together so maybe he can talk Blackie into that?
The absurdity of the Grammy’s for rock and metal continues. Metallica in rock but not metal category for the song “Hardwired”? Beyonce in the rock song category?! That alone pretty much destroys it for anyone to win in terms of credibility. Some of the metal picks were strong. Seeing Gojira well represented makes sense as many feel that is a special album and band. But most of it is nonsense. And having Beyonce in rock just further defines the decades of disrespect that make the Grammy’s the joke they are for our music. It is a pop event based solely on popularity to produce a TV show for the mainstream to watch. Please don’t believe anything else, it’s absurd.
I am excited to announce that in addition to Monsters Of Rock Cruise in Feb, I am also a host on the prog cruise Cruise To The Edge that leaves right after it. It’s my friend Mike Portnoy’s big 50th! Also I will be broadcasting my Volume show from the ship on all weekdays on both cruises! More soon.
I’m hosting Wall Street Rocks Dec 16th at Highline Ballroom for charity. Billy Gibbons and more perform live.
This Friday I’m in Houston at Pub Fountains with King’s X, Saturday in Dallas at Bomb Factory with Slaughter, Kix and more. Books for sale at both events. I may do my Friday show on Pub Fountains. Follow on Twitter for updates.
Don’t forget merch on sale in my merch store now!

Just wrapped up today’s Trunk Nation by letting the audience help me pick my R&R HOF ballot. Was lots of fun and some great debates for sure. The phones were jammed the entire time. Now that Volume is 6 weeks old I can’t tell you how cool it is to be doing a daily rock talk show. The guest list already has been insane! Today Jason Bonham called in, Sammy Hagar the other day. We started with Lars Ulrich and Jon Bon Jovi! To have a show covering all the wide range of rock, and to have all of your support is just awesome and I am thankful. And I appreciate my new team at SiriusXM for helping me deliver 6 live shows a week. Off to a great start for sure! Now we break for Thanksgiving. My Best Of the week will air as usual this Saturday and Sunday 9P ET on Volume 106. Then back live this Monday 2-4P ET on Volume and 5-8P ET on 39 Hair Nation.
Tomorrow is the 25th anniversary of the passing of Kiss drummer Eric Carr. Eric was the first Kiss replacement member, and probably the most loved of the replacement members. He was a great friend, great drummer and great person. We had many great times! I can’t believe it’s been 25 years! It seems like just the other day he was hanging on my radio show or busting my balls about something! He would have loved TMS! RIP Eric, you are missed. RIP also Freddie Mercury who passed away the same day. Two greats lost 25 years ago tomorrow.
My new podcast posting tomorrow is a triple header from my recent week in LA with Fred Coury, John 5 and Nuno Bettencourt. Grab it free starting tomorrow www.PodcastOne.com or Itunes.
My FM show airs on all stations this weekend as usual and is all new and features Metallica.
Hope you and your family have a very happy Thanksgiving!
