6/14: QUICK UPDATE, TESLA, GUITAR GODS, HAPPY FATHERS DAY.

If anyone has ever moved you know how insane it can be. Well that was the last week of my life! Now that I have relocated (still in NJ) the unpacking begins which will likely take years at the rate I’m going. Anyway been slammed with that and other stuff but just a quick check in and update before I get back to opening boxes. Thanks to all who listened to the Q104.3 show last night. Was a good diversion from my moving week and got in lots of great new music from Rival Sons, Tesla, Ace Frehley, Slash, Crobot, and tons more. I’ll update my playlists when I get a chance.I will be live on SiriusXM 39 this Monday 6-10P ET. Tesla will be live in the studio with me. Call in and talk with the guys live. They should be by in the first hour.

If in the NY/NJ area many cool shows next few days. Tesla at Irving Wed, Guitar Gods at Starland tonight and Bergen PAC Tues, Black Star Riders at BBs Tuesday. By the way, Uli is off Guitar Gods and was not replaced. So now a 3 band bill. Not sure what I can make based on what I am dealing with at home. I will be in Waukesha WI and Elgin IL next weekend. All details on my appearances on the home page.

Happy Fathers Day to all the fellow Dads out there. Much more soon.

6/9: LIVE RADIO SHOW TONIGHT, PODCAST COMING, MORE.

Thanks to all who came out to our live shows this past weekend in Providence RI and Chicopee MA. Had a blast at both gigs and appreciate all the support. Next up for me is hosting a show June 21 in Waukesha WI and June 22 in Elgin IL. Please note Vince Neil is off the Elgin show replaced by Bret Michaels. Links and more news on the home page. Books and merch available at both events.

Excited to announce I will be launching a Podcast soon. Many people have asked me about doing this over the years. Pleased to announce  I have signed up with Podcast One, the leading company in the field, to launch mine. I plan on doing a mix of commentary, interviews, and also answering your email questions and more. Of course I still plan on doing my syndicated and satellite radio shows as usual, but it’s cool to add this new emerging platform as well. It will be free and also available worldwide. Many more details and a launch date TBA soon, likely July. Now just need to decide what to call it? Trunk-cast?? Send your suggestions to me through the site via email.

Live show tonight 6-10P ET on SiriusXM channel 39 TRUNKNation. Join me for live music and talk that rocks! Have the new Tesla to play and win on CD.

6/5: PROVIDENCE RI AND CHICOPEE MA APPEARANCES THIS WEEKEND.

Headed to Providence RI and Chicopee MA this weekend for live club shows with Don & Jim. These have been a lot of fun to do when our schedule permits and we appreciate everyone coming out for a night of rock comedy, stories, Q&A and sometimes special guests and music (depends on venue). Tomorrow night we are at Lupos in Providence, doors at 8, show around 9. If you purchased the VIP that meet & greet is at 7P. Likely the same deal for Saturday at Comedy Connection in Chicopee but if hitting that one check with the venue Saturday. I will also tweet times when I have them for Saturday. Merch and both of my books also available at both events. Details on these shows on the home page. Hope to see you if in the area.

All new Q104,3 show tomorrow night 11P-2A ET. Catch the free stream at www.q1043.com or use the free iHeartradio app.

Have a good weekend all!

6/4: PROVIDENCE AND CHICOPEE THIS WEEKEND, TMS, MORE

About to embark on an even crazier than normal point in my schedule as I am preparing to move in a week or so. Only going a few miles for a better neighborhood for my kids, but any move still SUCKS as you know if you’ve done it! I love my CDs and it’s still by far my favorite format, but having to move them right now has dropped the love affair down just a peg for the time being. I’ll do my best to provide updates here as I can but the month of June is going to be nuts to say the least. Please keep an eye on my appearance calendar on home page of this site and my Twitter and FB for more info as well.

If in Providence RI or Chicopee MA area I will be there this weekend with Don & Jim for live dates. Details on the home page. Again, none of the shows listed or appearances I do are TMS tapings. Books and merch available at all. Hope to see you all soon as the road schedule is always being added to as well.

An FYI about the concerts listed on this site for my NYC/NJ radio audience. They are all mostly NY/NJ area events because they are shows I am connected with locally through my radio show on my flagship station Q104.3. They are shows that advertise with me locally and I give tickets away for on the air locally as you know if you listen on Q. Soon those giveaways will be shifting to registering online through this site to win instead of calling the show. More details soon on this.

Lot of reaction to the Kiss HOF induction now that everyone has seen the broadcast. If you watched the video I shot from it that night you can see some of the Kiss speeches were edited, but not majorly. The sad part beyond the fact that they didn’t play is that the HOF will probably be the final time we ever see the original four on a stage together..

I’m told TMS will start taping again in the Fall. I’ll have more info on dates, location, number of shows, guests, etc, when we get closer and VH1C tells me. They make all the calls so all up to them. But we will not do new shows likely before October. I wish we did it EVERY week, but not up to me. More soon.

Thanks to all who have purchased my shirts and merch on this site and continue to buy my books as well. I truly appreciate your support!

5/31: GLENN HUGHES & CAL BREED, R&R HOF, MORE

Thanks to Glenn Hughes and Andrew Watt of California Breed for hanging out in studio with me last night for my Q104.3 NYC radio show. Hear this show on all affiliate stations listed on this site next weekend usual time and day. Glenn is truly remarkable. The guy partied harder than anyone in the 70′s and 80′s and came through it looking and sounding better in 2014 than people half his age. Interesting revelations in last nights interview including his recent open heart surgery, the fact that he recorded and was close to announcing a band with the DiLeo brothers of STP, and how he started California Breed and found his new young guitarist. Was also cool to hear that things are fine now with Joe Bonamossa after the demise of BCC. Love the Cal Breed album and look forward to hosting their second ever show tonight in NYC at The Gramercy. The history of Glenn Hughes is truly amazing and this new band is already one of my favorite chapters yet.

I’ll also be swinging by Brian Tichy’s Bonzo Bash at Bergen PAC early tonight before hitting Cal Breed. Brian is also doing a Randy Rhoads tribute Tuesday at The Stone Pony and Wed at Bergen PAC in NJ. Congrats to all the ticket winners on my radio shows.

R&R HOF ceremony finally premieres tonight on HBO more than 6 weeks after it happened. As many of you know I was lucky enough to be there at the table with Ace and as a guest of him and Peter that night. I sent out many photos, posted video, and we discussed it at great length before, during and since it happened. Tonight you will see what HBO has decided to air from the night. But as I said all along, the Kiss part of the evening was very very minimal compared to all the others inducted. They were the only band to have no musical performance of any kind (although Ace was going to jam at the end but it was cut because it went so late, I think Springsteen band is STILL talking..). Will also be interesting to see what they include of Paul’s speech. My video uncut from the night shows what was said completely. Paul took some well deserved shots at the HOF. Be interesting to see what they leave in. It’s nice Kiss is finally in after 15 years. In many circles the fighting between them, the HOF, etc still goes on. But at least they are in and you will see some version of the induction tonight. You will also see that Tom Morello did a great job inducting them, at least in my opinion.

Mostly positive comments here on the new Ace song. I played it last night and will again on the SiriusXM show Monday. I think it sounds like classic Ace and is exactly what you’d expect from Ace’s style and vibe. I really like his voice. Of course he was never Paul Rodgers or Robert Plant, Dio, etc, but he has that same youthful sound in his voice from the ’78 record again which is cool. The album is out July 8th.

Have a good weekend all!

5/28: BACK FROM ROCKLAHOMA, GLENN HUGHES IN STUDIO, MORE.

Hope everyone is having a good week. Busy playing catch up from being away. I can tell you Glenn Hughes and Andrew Watt from California Breed will be live in studio with me this Friday on Q104.3 show. Listen live starting 11P ET via www.q1043.com or use the free iHeartradio app. Really loving this bands new album and also look forward to seeing them at The Gramercy in NYC this Saturday night.

Before Cal Breed show I also will be hitting the Bonzo Bash for a bit at Bergen PAC in NJ. Tickets for both of these shows will be given away on Q104 show Friday night for my NYC based audience.

Rocklahoma was a blast. Had a chance to see Kyng live for the first time. Really really good! Exciting to see some great new music from new bands out there and these guys are among the ones leading the charge for me. Thanks to all the great fans and many cool bands I saw and hung with over the weekend.

Next live gigs with Don and Jim are June 6th on Providence and June 7th in Chicopee MA. Info on the home page of the site on all confirmed appearances. More soon.

5/25: LATEST REPORT FROM ROCKLAHOMA DAY 2, MORE.

Hope everyone is having a great Memorial weekend and thanks to all our military past, present and future for their sacrifice. About to leave to host day 3 of Rocklahoma and wrap up another great year of this festival. Yesterday was great weather and performances. From what I was able to watch Twisted Sister was a highlight for sure. Dee came out like a madman! There was an undercurrent for sure that TS was not happy to not be closing the show last night (Staind headlined), and Dee and it no doubt fired Dee and the boys to another level. He smashed an acoustic guitar saying TS will always play electric and unplugged sucks and also went on a rant about all these bands that don’t have original members when they can. Saying the only excuse for bands not making it work with original members is that one of them is dead! It was classic Dee and the guy is in insane shape and had unreal energy for almost 60! TS followed Jackyl and that no doubt drove them some too. In this area of the country Jackyl and Jesse are loved and he always brings it. The band is such a kick ass in your face hard rock band and Jesse has to be one of rocks most underrated front men. Him and Dee back to back was awesome! Side stage acts I caught some of included Kix and THC and both had great crowds to see them. Spent some time with the guys in Stained and Pop Evil as well. Truly all the bands really bring it next level in a festival setting and the crowds have been great.

Today should be some amazing guitar fireworks with Zakk Wylde & BLS on the main stage followed by Nuno and Extreme! Really looking forward to this! Kid Rock closes it out, never saw him live or met him, but major respect for his crusade to lower concert prices. Will also see Tom Keifer solo today for the first time. Photos and reports via Twitter @EddieTrunk and Instagram at eddietrunkofficial .

Didn’t see the Golden Gods since I am traveling but was fun to host it with Don & Jim. For those asking to see it in HD ( I HAVE NO CONTROL OVER VH1 CLASSIC NOT BEING AN HD CHANNEL), it will air on Palladia in HD next weekend.

Enjoy your weekend and more when I can post here. Due to the holiday and my travel the Monday SiriusXM show is not live. Back with a full report and live a week from Monday.

5/21: ROCKLAHOMA IS HERE, REDDIT AMA TOMORROW, RADIO SHOW MARATHON, MORE

Headed to Tulsa in a few hours for my annual trip to OK to once again host Rocklahoma.

In addition to the guys I have known forever that are on the bill, I always look forward to seeing and discovering new stuff I like at these events. I don’t get to see everything with my schedule but do my best.
