Had a great SiriusXM show last night with live interviews with Jesse from Jackyl and Steve from Kix. Both artists will be at M3 this year. See you there, should be a blast as always. More free tickets to M3 on my FM shows.
Thanks to David Coverdale for the surprise call in this past Friday on the FM show. DC talked about the upcoming live Whitesnake touring and DVDs/CDs. He revealed that after this run the extensive touring for his band will start to slow a bit. He also noted he reconnected with Richie Blackmore for the first time in ages and had a great talk with him. David seems to be in a great place right now and in great spirits. Always good to have him on. Also check out Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich’s band Burning Rain who are about to release new music and just issued a new video. Also spoke with Robin Zander of Cheap Trick in this past Friday’s show. Budokan is 35 years old and special stuff will be announced soon. Robin is doing some solo shows including this Thursday at BBs in NYC. Honor to have these two legendary singers on the show.

Back from the Monsters Of Rock Cruise. What a blast! 45 bands, 4 days! Thanks to all the bands, fans and crew. WAY too many stores to tell here, but I will on the radio this weekend. Still very much recovering! Also want to thank the MANY fans I met on the ship from Brazil who tell me how big TMS is there. I appreciate all our viewers from outside the US and if there is an opportunity that makes sense to visit your country I hope to soon. For those that don’t get the show outside the US it is out of my control, but I have heard from some they know ways to see it… Metal fans are resourceful, awesome!

As usual rock and metal artists will be represented and we will me mixing in new bands with the classics ones as well. All details TBA but the new shows will start airing early June. In the meantime enjoy the many repeats of nearly 100 episodes now running on VH1C.
Very sad to hear of the passing of original Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr. CLive was ill for a long time battling MS. Credit the Maiden camp for always trying to help him and doing benefits for him through his struggles. I saw Maiden with Clive twice. First time I saw Maiden was opening for Priest in NJ at Convention Hall in Asbury Pk on the Killers tour. Then I saw them headline at The Palladium in NYC on the Beast tour. Clive’s role in the early days of Maiden can not be understated. Great player and fun to watch too. Killers and Beast are two of my top 5 Maiden albums, so he will always live on with us through this brilliant music. Condolences to his fans, friends and family. I’ll do a musical remembrance when back on the radio live since this weeks shows are pre recorded. RIP Clive Burr.
Off to Florida tomorrow. Honored to be special guest host once again for the second annual Monsters Of Rock Cruise. This year it’s 4 nights of Mayhem with a TON of bands! It’s also sold out.

Since there is no cell or internet service i’ll update you when I can and have signal.
I will once again be hosting M3 in Maryland and Rocklahoma in Pryor OK. Hope to see you at those shows too. More info soon. Be sure to follow on Twitter @EddieTrunk for up to the second news. More here when I return from the high seas!
