Had a great chat with brilliant drummer Rod Morgenstein from The Dregs and Winger tonight. Rod has a great story and you will hear it for my upcoming podcast. Also coming soon Jamey Jasta, Joe Lynn Turner, and this Thursday an interview that I aired part of in my radio show recently that made a much of news with Michael Schenker.

Back from another great trip to the Seminole Hard Rock in S FL. This time I hosted Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience in a sold out show this past Wednesday. It had been a few years since I saw Jason do this show and it was AMAZING! I have seen MANY Zeppelin tributes but in my opinion nothing touches this. Why? Well Jason is just a beast channeling his Dad and of course played with Zeppelin. The personal connection in the show through videos is a nice touch. But the other huge part is the band which is killer! James Catania nails the “live” Jimmy Page, right down to the looseness he could have live. The guitar sound spot on. But the major weapon here is singer James Dylan who I dare say sings Plant way better than Plant himself could today. All the stuff is in the original key and this guy just NAILS it all! The entire band is just flawless. And what’s also cool is nobody is trying to act or look like the people in Zeppelin. Just 4-5 guys being their own people and nailing spot on some of the greatest hard rock ever created. For me I love some of the deeper cuts performed. Especially “Wearin & Tearin'”, “Fool In The Rain” and “The Wanton Song”. The sound was massive! Sadly we have no more of the real band, but to me this is as close as it gets sound wise. I truly hope Jason keeps doing this because with all the Zep guys in limbo, or not really playing this catalog, this is a great way to celebrate it and keep it alive. And yes I’ve heard many comment about Train playing Zeppelin on Stern. All due respect to them, that was great, but as cool as that was this is just next level.

Great radio interviews tonight with Michael Schenker and Joe Lynn Turner. The best interviews are when artists are honest and open and these guys didn’t hold back at all! Michael’s issues with his brother were discussed and generated a bunch of calls. Joe Lynn discussed Purple, Yngwie and more and was also great. I’ll get full audio as podcasts in the near future. Thanks to both guests and all of Trunk Nation for the kind words on the interviews.

Busy week doing press for the new series I am hosting for AXS TV Reel To Real. The series debuted this past Tuesday with the Green Day documentary.

As part of the press I did during the week I appeared on the Howard Stern Wrap Up show for the first time live on Thursday. As a lifelong Stern fan that was a huge thrill and I got a ton of response. Appreciate them having me and hope to one day make it on to the main show to talk music, radio and more. Was also great to be on again with my old friend Ron Bennington for the first time on his show with his daughter Gail. Appreciate all my fellow radio broadcasters for having me.

Have a great weekend!
Back from hosting another year of Rocklahoma. Had a blast as usual with many friends and fans in Pryor OK. The weather was for the most part great, outside of a brief hour or so Sunday where I had to stop the show due to possible lightning. But better safe than sorry. It was the biggest crowd yet in the 10 year history of the festival. If you follow on my social media I sent out a bunch of photos and tweets from the weekend. Of the bands I saw some of my personal highlights were Scorpions, Last In Line, Saint Asonia (good new band), Disturbed, Great White, Sebastian Bach, Rob Zombie, FFDP, Hatebreed, Great White, Bullet For My Valentine, THC, Pop Evil, Megadeth and probably more I’m forgetting. As usual I don’t get to see everyone due to my schedule and rarely see full sets, but most of what I did catch was killer. It’s great getting to see some newer blood and many old friends at these events. Already looking forward to 2017!
Just wrapped up a full AM of radio interviews to promote the new series I am hosting for AXS TV called Real To Reel. It debuts tonight 9P ET. I thank all my fellow radio broadcasters for having me on and the great support. Lots of questions about TMS as expected, but still no real news to report. FYI Real To Reel is a series of music documentaries. The debut tonight features Green Day. I do not pick the films or interview artists for this. I simply host the show and come on at the start, middle, and end of the films with some info. I shot everything a couple months ago at the AXS studio in LA. I appreciate them having me as part of the team and hope you guys like the docs. There will be a new film featured the last Tuesday of every month.
Amazing response to me podcast exclusive interview with Angel. This Thursday my podcast guest will be Carmine Appice.
