Got back from LA last night. Great trip and 5 great radio shows which wrapped up Friday with a call from Lars Ulrich on his way to the Metallica show in Philly. I’m headed out to the NJ show tonight. I have stayed away from watching much of the online clips because I really want to have some old school surprise and see it all for the first time from the audience. I’m bringing my 9 year old son to the show, his first metal show, so I’ll see how long he/we last!
Big week of TrunkNation ahead. Tomorrow live both on Volume 106 2-4P ET, then on Hair Nation 5-8P ET. M Shadows of A7X will drop by the Volume show, live call ins with Mark Kendall of Great White (premiering new music) and Robert Mason of Warrant on the show on 39. Tuesday Rival Sons are in studio and perform live on the Volume show. Should be another great week of TrunkNation!
Just a phenomenal week of guests so far on my daily SiriusXM show TrunkNation from Los Angeles. Monday Dave Navarro was in for the entire show talking all kinds of rock. Pretty much everything but his own band Janes Addiction (although we did touch on some). Dave is a blast to have on and another total rock geek. Tonight I am going to his studio to do his podcast Dark matter live at 9:30 Pacific. Tuesday Kevin Cronin was in studio. It was my first time interviewing Kevin and we had a great chat about REO and writing two number one hit singles. REO tours with Styx this Summer. Super nice long overdue guest to have on. Today one of my favorite people ever Michael Anthony came to the studio. What else can I say about Mike I haven’t already? Just one of the most down to earth real people ever, who just so happens to be an original member of one of the world’s most iconic rock bands! We covered so much stuff I wouldn’t know where to begin. All interviews now On Demand on the SiriusXM app. Just search my name or Trunknation.
Tomorrow / Thursday I’ll be a guest with Jason Ellis on his SiriusXM show live at 10AM Pacific on Faction Talk. Then my show live 11A Pacific with Corey Taylor in studio on 106. Corey always brings it when he’s on with me and it’s been a while, so this will be fun! I wrap up from LA Friday with our usual Free For All open phones, but that is subject to change. Keep an eye on Twitter.
New podcast tomorrow is my recent interview with Phil Mogg of UFO. Free www.PodcastOne.com and Itunes.
Yesterday I paid a visit to the graves of Ronnie James Dio and for the first time Lemmy. They are buried at the same place and fittingly right across from each other. RIP Lem and RJD. Posted a few photos on my Twitter and Instagram.
I fly back to NJ Saturday and hit Metallica on Sunday. Taking my 9 year old son for his first metal show! Might as well throw him in the deep end!
Next week Rival Sons will be in studio and playing live on TrunkNation on Tuesday!

Great time hosting M3 this past weekend. Had a blast being back and they did an amazing renovation job to the venue. Thanks to all the bands, fans and crews. Next year is year 10 of M3. I greatly look forward to it and great hanging with everyone in MD.
Today Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge and Anders of In Flames live in studio for TrunkNation. Catch the show live 2-4P ET, replay 9-11P ET on SiriusXM Volume 106. Both bands play NJ tonight at Starland.
I am aware of the many rumors and the Swedish TV show about Kiss and Vinnie Vincent. But since the show is not in English it’s hard to really comments more. Whatever Vinnie is doing these days, or whatever he has become (if true), hope he is happy and still hope to one day do an interview.
Many ask about Billy Squier. He is doing one acoustic performance and interview with GE Smith 9/1 at Guild Hall in E Hampton NY. Hoping to have Billy back on my radio show soon.
This Friday I’ll be doing TrunkNation live from IDL Ballroom in Tulsa. Don Dokken and possibly Alice Cooper may drop by. Then I host Dokken at IDL later that night. See you this Friday Tulsa!
This Sunday I host Ride For Ronnie for the Dio Cancer Fund. Many special guests being added. Hope to see you in S CA. Then my radio show live from LA week of May 8.
RIP Jeff Hannemam who passed away 5 years ago today.
Had a great week of interviews this week with great variety as well. My guests this week on my daily Trunk Nation show on SiriusXM Volume 106 included Ice T, The Pretty Reckless and Styx. Great having them all in this week and thanks to all the callers. TrunkNation on Volume is really taking off and I appreciate all the support. Join me live M-F 2-4P ET, replay 9-11P ET on 106. Saturday and Sunday Best Of is 8-10P ET.
Headed to M3 tonight. Psyched to be back hosting this festival in MD. I’ll be doing my radio show from MD tomorrow, then hosting the show Fri & Sat. I will do my best to get out and see everyone when I can. Follow on Twitter for updates @EddieTrunk .
