Hope everyone had a great 4th. I’ve been enjoying a week off from my daily SiriusXM show on vacation at the Jersey shore. Back live Monday 2-4P ET on Volume and 5-8P on Hair Nation. New podcast now up with Sammy Hagar and Rick Springfield (they share a connection if you didn’t know). The Sammy interview is the recent one from my Volume show that made all the news about VH and DLR. Check it out free now at www.podcastone.com and iTunes.
HUGE thanks to all who watched the debut of TrunkFest on AXS TV last Sunday! I appreciate it! New episodes every Sunday night 9:30P ET. This Sunday I am from Voodoo Fest in NOLA with Prophets Of Rage and Taylor Hawkins! Set those DVRs and please keep watching and spreading the word. A few things on TrunkFest:
*I have NOTHING to do with where AXS does and does not air or stream. It is on most systems so check with your provider. Often it may be on a higher tier of channels. Streaming is on Sling TV. Go to www.AXS.tv for more.
*TrunkFest has NOTHING to do with That Metal Show. It is a completely different show for a different network. As usual if TMS finds a new home I can do it again tomorrow!
* I do not pick the festivals we cover, the network does.
*I also wish the show was 60 minutes vs 30, again, not my call, the networks.
Thanks for watching and please continue to!
Next appearance 7/13 hosting Dokken in Tulsa at IDL Ballroom. See you soon OK!
Just had a great interview with Sammy Hagar on my Volume show. Sam admitted he reached out to Alex VH and had no response to a happy birthday text. The ship has clearly sadly sailed on anything VH it seems. Sam has a festival coming in October we discussed, and as always was a great interview. Also fun to have Steve Priest of Sweet on. As usual the shows replay every night 9-11P ET on SiriusXM 106 and On Demand on the app. Tomorrow is the last live show before I take a vacation and return 7/9. Tomorrow I’ll also be live on the Howard Stern Wrap Up show 11A ET on Howard 100. I’ll be promoting the debut of TrunkFest this Sunday 9:30P ET on AXS TV.
Speaking of..PLEASE DVR and watch my new TV show if you have AXS this and every Sunday night 9:30P ET. Real important we get off to a good start. And who knows, if we do more TrunkFest maybe it leads to TMS coming back if I can show some strong support. Remember TMS happened because I was already a host at VH1 Classic and worked from the inside to put it together. So it all helps! First show is from Sturgis this Sunday 7/1, 7/9 episode 2 from Voodoo Fest with Taylor Hawkins and Prophets Of Rage!
Here’s the best of schedule for my daily show on Volume while away on vacation:
6/29: Best of Free For All Friday
7/2: King Diamond
7/3: Best Of NAMM
7/4: holiday specials
7/5: Best of Cruise To The Edge
7/6: Best of Monsters Of Rock
I am thrilled to announce I will be touring Mexico in November with Deep Purple! I have been asked to travel with the band and intro them on their shows, do some meet and greets, and be part of the tour. This is a huge honor to say the least as it’s likely this legendary bands last go around. I have been to Mexico a few times and there are always such great rock fans and fans of what I do, so this should be amazing! I don’t have many more details yet. I know opening acts will be announced soon. All I can say as of now to the great rock fans of Mexico is that I will see you this November with Deep Purple! And as of now I will be at every single date of the entire Mexican tour. Can’t wait!
My podcast this Thursday will pay tribute to Vinnie Paul and include recent interviews talking about his passing with Bret Michaels, Morgan Rose, Charlie Benante, Chris Jericho, Mike Portnoy and more. Free on www.PodcastOne.com and iTunes as usual.
A reminder to all to please set the DVRs and watch TrunkFest debuting this Sunday on AXS TV. If you have this channel it’s so important you do this to help me launch this brand new TV series. This is not That Metal Show. It has nothing to do with it. I want TMS back more than you, trust me! But it is a new thing for me I am very proud of and I take you to 8 different music festivals in the debut season. I appreciate you all helping to spread the word and watching every Sunday 9:30P ET. Debut episode is Sturgis, then we go to Voodoo Fest in NOLA, with 6 more after that. Hope you guys enjoy it. To find out how to see AXS TV if you can’t find the channel go to www.AXS.TV . It’s also available on Sling.
I am on vacation the week of 4th of July. My daily SiriusXM show will be in Best Of mode 6/29 as well as 7/2-6.
Shocked to hear of the death of Pantera/Hellyeah/Damageplan drummer Vinnie Paul late last night. Vin was a friend and frequent guests on all of my TV and radio shows over the years. Vinnie was what I liked most in guests, they were first and foremost music fans, and never stopped being one. He equally loved Slayer and Poison. I remember how excited he was when we had him on TMS and he shared a show with Styx. Sure an amazing drummer. But a rock fan through and through beyond anything. Which made for great hangs over the years. He loved to knock a few back and watch bands and hang with friends, I did that a few times with him. I last saw Vin in Dallas in December at the holiday show I host at Bomb Factory, waiting to see Ace Frehley play. We had a toast to the holidays. Last time I was in Dallas a couple months ago we had discussed him doing my show from there, but it didn’t work out with schedules. Vinnie was a huge presence and talent in the rock and metal world. He will be missed by many. RIP Vin. Condolences to his family, friends and many fans. I will do a special live tribute today 3-5P ET on SiriusXM 106 Volume. We will also remember him on my show Monday in the usual 2-4P slot on 106 and during Trunk Nation on Hair Nation Monday night on 39 from 5-8P ET
The Vinnie Paul special that aired live Saturday afternoon also repeats Saturday and Sunday night 8-10P ET on 106 Volume on SiriusXM!
Due to the timing of this I was unable to include music and a tribute to Vin in my FM show airing this weekend on affiliates, however I will next weekend.
