So now that things are settling in with the new site how about some updates?

TMS will shoot new episodes in late April. Unsure if it will be in L.A. (most likely), Vegas or NYC. The decision is 100% up to VH1 and based on what is most cost effective and where the most artists are (why we moved to L.A., they all are based there). Once the dates and location are set the booking process will start. That is handled by me and VH1 with VH1 making the final call. Of course it is also based on who is available when we shoot and if THEY want to be on TMS. You would be surprised how many artists are picky about what they do and when they do it, but we do ask. Much more on TMS when I know, for now enjoy the many replays on VH1C.

Almost complete with Eddie Trunk’s Essential Hard Rock & Heavy Metal Vol 2. Lot’s of work but it should be as good as book one with all different bands, stories and photos not in the first book, but same format. It will be released later this year. Exact date TBD. More soon. My debut book still available everywhere you buy books (physical stores, Amazon) and also via Itunes as a digital version. You can still order personalized signed copies direct from me. Just click the banner on the site for order info.

Had a great radio show with my bud former MLB star Mike Piazza in studio last night. Check out his book Long Shot. Also thanks to the great Sammy Hagar for calling in. He even put Bob Weir from the Dead on the phone. Never was a Dead head but that was pretty funny. Sammy working on new music and a 40th anniversary tour. I’ll be seeing him in Vegas next month when we both appear at R&R Fantasy Camp at MGM, details on the banner on my site.


Interesting interview in our news section from RS with David Lee Roth. Sounds like VH situation once again clouded. My ides? Get Michael back (all respect to Wolfie but Mike is Mike and Wolfie can be much more active with another band for now), and do a tour half set with DLR and half with Sammy. I like BOTH versions of VH and they had HUGE hits with Hagar that only he can sing. This would also give Dave a rest for his voice to maybe be stronger? Just thinking out loud and doubt it will happen, but that would make sense to me. Nobody getting any younger here!


Looking forward to sold out Monsters Of Rock Cruise next month. Once again I’ll be hosting this and it was a blast last year. If you are on board I’ll see you soon.


New special edition of the great new Overkill coming in a couple weeks with bonus live tracks. Look forward to hitting Testament/Overkill/Flotz this Thursday in NYC.


Live radio show this Friday on Q104.3 NYC 11P ET. Listen via the free iheartradio app too. Last Friday I was snowed out so had to run a Best Of. I will also be live this Monday on SiriusXM even though it’s a holiday. Tom Keifer will be my guest. SiriusXM channel 39 6PM ET.

I’d like to welcome two new affiliates airing my FM show each week! WYKT 105.5 FM in Kankakee IL (just outside Chicago) every Saturday 9AM-Noon, and K Rock in Honolulu Hawaii every Sunday night 9P-Midnight. Thanks to these stations for adding “Eddie Trunk Rocks”. Be sure to spread the word if in that area. And if your local stations does not air my weekly show let them know you want it, it helps. Thanks!

Be sure to follow on Twitter @EddieTrunk for up to the second news and updates. We will have much more audio, video and news now that we are on our upgraded server and hopefully have resolved issues with the site. Thanks for your patience and support.

pearcybookcover Ratt frontman, Stephen Pearcy’s book, Sex, Drugs, Ratt & Roll: My Life In Rock, will be released on May 7th through Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

The 288-page hardcover is described in a press release as “a jaw-dropping tell-all from the lead singer of the 1980s supergroup Ratt: the groupies, the trashed hotel rooms, the drugs — and just how much you can get away with when you’re one of the biggest hair metal stars of all time.”

In the mid-1980s, Ratt, alongside Motely Crue, Poison and Quite Riot, were laying down the riffs and unleashing the scissor kicks that would herald the arrival of music’s most flamboyantly debauched era. Now with Sex, Drugs, Ratt & Roll, Ratt frontman and chief rabble-rouser Stephen Pearcy divulges all the dirty details of the era when big-haired bands ruled the world.

Stephen was primed for a life of excess from an early age — his father died of a heroin overdose when he was twelve, and by the age of fifteen, Stephen was himself a drug addict. When Stephen met the thrill-seeking Robbin Crosby, he knew he’d found his perfect partner in crime — both in music and partying. Ratt’s 1984 debut single, Round And Round became one of the top-selling metal songs of all time, but it was the band’s off-stage escapades that were the stuff of legend.

“Our tour bus is like our pirate ship, it’s where we rape and pillage,” said Pearcy in 1987. Now Pearcy’s memoir reveals all the rock star excess — the partying, the women, the $2,000-a-day drug habits — letting fans see into this harrowing hair-metal lifestyle and what it’s really like behind the scenes when you’re a rock star.

Famed book editor Jeremie Ruby-Strauss, editor at Gallery Books stated about what fans can expect from Stephen Pearcy’s forthcoming book, “There will be a ton of sex, mind-boggling amounts of drugs, and, of course, a whole lot of Ratt and roll. There’s also stuff about him breaking both legs as a kid and whatnot, but are you seriously not more intrigued by the sex and drugs?”

In a 2011 interview, Pearcy stated about “Sex, Drugs, Ratt & Roll: My Life In Rock” — which has been in the works for more than three years: “[It will include] so many stories. The good, the bad (real bad) and the ugly.” He added, “It’s a big wakeup call to remember some things, but have to share. Some might learn something from my experiences and get something positive in the end. There are bright moments; it’s not all about Ratt ‘n’ Roll.”

blackSabbathProducer Rick Rubin wanted Cream drummer Ginger Baker to replace Bill Ward in Black Sabbath, guitarist Tony Iommi has revealed.

The band’s plans for their first album with Ozzy Osbourne since 1978′s Never Say Die were thrown into turmoil after Ward refused to participate saying he hadn’t been offered a contact that was “signable.”

But Iommi, who faced his own challenges with a cancer battle, rejected Rubin’s suggestion of calling Baker, who was recently named rock’s craziest drummer.

The guitarist tells Rolling Stone: “I thought, ‘Bloody hell!’ I just couldn’t see that.”

He’d already struggled with Ward’s announcement. “I didn’t know Bill was having these issues when we got together,” he reflects. “He never even mentioned it to us. It was quite confusing. We wanted him involved but it was just getting too hard.”

Frontman Osbourne states, “You can’t go, ‘Well, I don’t like it.’ You get off your ass and you get your shit together. The life of a bohemian rock star is fucking long over.”

Bassist Geezer Butler describes pre-production sessions as “confusing” after Rubin – who’s maintained his controversial reputation after being blamed for delays in Slayer’s next album – told them to try and recover the mindset they’d had on their 1970 debut album. Butler says: “We had to unlearn everything we’d learned.”

Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk was finally chosen to fill Ward’s role. The album, which is set to be, released in June and includes tracks called End Of The Beginning, Age Of Reason and God Is Dead.

Despite Rubin’s intentions, Osbourne reflects that the band’s outlook has changed significantly in their 43-year history. He describes the album as “Satanic blues” but reports of God Is Dead,  “It starts off, ‘God is dead,’ but at the end it says, ‘I don’t believe that God is dead.’”
