Hope everyone had a great Labor Day long weekend. I spent a few days in my favorite city Vegas visiting with friends, doing a little gambling, seeing some shows, and eating and drinking. In other words another great time! I am headed West again on Wednesday night, unexpected trip to LA for a SiriusXM Town Hall radio interview with Stone Temple Pilots. Air dates and times TBA. Speaking of my Town Hall interviews today you can hear my recent ones with Alice Cooper 9P, Deep Purple 10P, and Nickelback 11P ET on channel 106. Back live on Volume tomorrow 2-4P ET.
Speaking of my Town Halls I did ask Purple about a possible Blackmore reunion and they all had a slightly different take, perhaps none more transparent than Ian Gillen’s who said he didn’t feel Blackmore was playing very well these days, but was in touch with him some. Be sure to also hear these On Demand as well on the SiriusXM app, coming soon to my podcast as well.
I do now have re stock of both of my books. So if you ordered signed copies they are on the way. If interested in ordering see Books on my site.
Headed to Dallas this weekend for the Giants opener, can’t wait for NFL, Go Gmen!
Had a great couple of SiriusXM Town Halls with Alice Cooper and today with Deep Purple. If you missed them hear them on the SiriusXM app. Final live show on Volume tomorrow before taking a long weekend for labor day.

Truly insane the news I inadvertently made by talking about Rush RUMORS last week on my remote from Houston. Unfortunately much of the context I said it in was totally misquoted by some and became a story I never said. “Fake News” in rock news? You bet, it is rampant. But glad to know people are listening, and to those that cover and quote what I do accurately (many did), thanks. I in now was said a “Lee/Lifeson” band was a real done deal thing. And apologies to any drama I may have caused to my friends in Rush and their camp. Was NOT the intent or context..
Cool to see Brian Johnson belting out AC/DC tunes with Muse. You think that sends a not so subtle message he can still do it?
Have a great holiday weekend, more soon.
More tragic news from the Adrenaline Mob accident yesterday when it was announced the bands road manager Janet Rains (AKA Jane Train) passed away due to her injuries. My understanding is she was badly burned and had been fighting for her life ever since the horrific crash. A knew Janet many years ago. She was on the NJ club rock scene and had a band called Little Sister I would often see playing around the area and opening many shows. She was a talented singer and nice person and had a huge passion for rock. I hadn’t seen or spoken to her in a number of years, and wasn’t even aware of the “Jane Train” nick name. But I certainly did know her and remember her band. Another very very sad loss. Janet was just beginning a career working on a rock road crew. She will be missed and my condolences to her family and friends and the Amob crew. RIP Janet.

Great trip to Houston last week that included 2 live broadcasts from the House Of Blues, hosting a private event with Don Felder, Robert Mason, Vince Neil, Stephen Pearcy and Dee Snider, and hosting Pearcy & Bulletboys at Tumbleweeds on Friday night. I want to thank everyone who came out to the broadcasts, the HOB, John and staff at Tumbleweeds, John Escamilla, Jeff Blando, and mostly all the great fans I met and who came to the remote radio show. One more airing of the show with Dee, Pearcy and Robert today 8-10P ET on SiriusXM 106.
I’ll be back live in 106 Volume tomorrow 2-4P ET with my guest Jerry Cantrell. Also live tomorrow 5-8P ET on channel 39.
Many have asked me about the news of the Vinnie Vincent appearance announced for Atlanta in February. I know nothing more than what you guys have read. I have for years tried to track Vinnie down and interview him. I’m still trying and now that he is doing this maybe he will come on. Many fans seem skeptical if he is really doing this signing. Again, I have no info beyond what is posted. But if he does an interview we will learn more no doubt. Would be great if this is a sign that this talented musician is going to be active again..
