Thanks to all for a great weekend in Texas. Had a blast at Pub Fountains on Friday night with King’s X. Was also cool to do my first TrunkNation from the road from the venue that afternoon. It was cold out there but still a good time for sure!
Saturday I visited the Bomb Factory in Dallas for the first time. Amazing venue! Really cool to host a big night of 80’s hard rock and meet so many fans. I sold out of my books but remember you can always buy signed personalized copies from me on this site too.
Double dip SiriusXM day today. Live 2-4P ET for my daily show on 106 Volume, then live 5-8P ET on 39 (Hair Nation). Hope to catch you guys on the radio today.
Be sure to check out the merch store on this site for some great sales.
HOW BOUT THOSE GIANTS!
The first of my 4 annual year end holiday specials debuts tomorrow night on Q104.3 NYC and WAAF Boston. It’s 3 hours of all Rush! All eras! Hear the show tomorrow 11P-2A ET live on either station. Both stations also stream free if outside the broadcast area. A complete list of stations airing my show over this weekend is under “Live & On Air” on this site.
Just announced I’ll be doing my Trunk Nation show on SiriusXM channel 106 Volume LIVE from The Pub Fountains in Houston TX tomorrow/Friday 1-3PM! It is free and open to all to come by. Mark Slaughter will be among my guests. This should be a blast so come be a part of the broadcast. Then I’ll be back there later at night to host King’s X. I’ll also have signed copies of my books available both at the broadcast and the show later that night. Saturday I’m in Dallas to host the Hair Metal Holiday. Books available there as well for sale. Hope to see everyone this week in Texas!
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!
