Huge thanks to everyone who came out to our annual TMS Christmas party last night in NJ at Dingbatz. The place was packed as usual and we appreciate the support. It was fun hanging with my TMS partners Don & Jim and so many fans and great bands that played. Special thanks to Jack Frost who put together an all star cover band that played some killer covers. Also thanks to Jacob & Paul Figueroa from Crobot who came out and hung with us. Good to meet those guys. Their album was on all 3 of our top 10 lists that I did on my radio show earlier that day. Of course if there is any news on TMS I will post as soon as I know. Great time as usual last night!

Had a pretty major news making interview on my radio show with Phil Amselmo. Phil came on to break his silence about the claims that he is a racist and what happened at Dimebash in January when he gave a “white power” salute. Phil was intense as usual and gave his explanation of events that transpired that night. Did I mention it was intense? Fans will ultimately decide how they feel about Phil after hearing this interview, but I appreciate his willingness to come on my show and open up on this from his view. This interview replays tonight 9P ET on SiriusXM 106 Volume, then On Demand on the app. It also on the SiriusXMVolume FB as a video which was shot live by the channel. I will also post it as my podcast likely next week. MANY comments about this, be sure to check it out for yourself.
