About to wrap up a great long trip here in Tulsa dating back to last weekend when I hosted Rocklahoma. Last night I introed Vince Neil and had a great time with him and his killer band at the Hard Rock Tulsa. One final thing on this trip to Tulsa and that’s to host Tom Keifer tonight at IDL Ballroom. The show is close to sold out. Tom hits the stage around 9. Should be a great time. I have seen Tom many times and his band is killer as well. Thanks to all here in Tulsa for the great support as always. Ever since I started coming here in 2007 the fans have been so cool to me. Extra special thanks to the Hard Rock Tulsa for the hospitality and letting me do my radio show from their facility. It’s a great place and a must visit if in this area. Thanks also to Doug Burgess, Tom Green and the staff at IDL for having me host these cool shows as well. Fly home to NJ tomorrow.

So I’ll be doing TrunkNation live on SiriusXM from Tulsa and the Hard Rock Casino this Friday, and Tues-Friday next week. Follow on Twitter if in the area and I’ll let you know if the broadcasts will be public. Hope to see you at Rocklahoma and IDL. Tulsa time for the next week or so and I appreciate all the great support from the people there. And thanks to the Hard Rock for hosting me and my show!

On the FM show this weekend it’s the Memorial Day Double Play, two in a row from your favorite American artists. Debuts this Friday 11P ET Q104.3 NYC and WAAF Boston and on all affiliates over the weekend.
Like many, I woke up today to the tragic news that one of rocks all time great singers Chris Cornell was dead at 52. For decades when anyone would ask me about my favorite late 80’s/90’s bands I would often answer Soundgarden, and that was largely due to Chris’ voice. Even when we had a Rage vs Audioslave debate on TMS I was with Audioslave, again because of the vocals of Chris. He was a monster talent to say the least, and now gone far far too soon. I did not know Chris. I only interviewed him once about 10 years ago for TV on MSG Network. That was at The Beacon Theater in NYC. We had a great post show chat. Chris was doing two nights solo at The Beacon. After I left the dressing room after night one and wrapped the interview I told him the only thing I was bummed about was he didn’t do “Fell On Black Days”. A favorite of mine. Chris said he would put me on the guest list to come to the second show the next night, and if I showed up would do it for me. So I did show up the next night, and sure enough Chris stepped to the mic mid show and said “this is for a friend I met last night” and played the song. A great and lasting memory of his kindness and amazing talent. More recently I was honored when the band reached out to have me contribute a quote to the special edition of Badmotorfinger, and I was in talks to hopefully have them on my new Volume show to talk more in depth. I was most excited to see Chris and Soundgarden, as were many, next weekend at Rocklahoma which I host every year. Sadly that now won’t happen. RIP Chris and condolences to his friends, bandmates, family and many fans. My radio show today will be extended by an hour to celebrate Chris today. Join me live 1-4P EST on SiriusXM channel 106 Volume. Plenty of calls from fans and musicians to celebrate this great talent. Join us at 844-686-5863
Massive thanks to the guys in Metallica for a truly special night last Sunday in NJ. Took my 9 year old son to his first metal show and they could not have been nicer. Amazing seats, he met the guys and took photos, got sticks from Lars, just amazingly cool. I appreciate my long history and friendship with these guys, they never forgot where they came from and the people that were there for them when nobody cared. They are still fans and those people even though they are one of the biggest bands on the planet. And they are still amazing! 2 1/2 hours, maybe the best they have ever been. Do not miss this show! Also special thanks to Frank Munoz for his tremendous hospitality.
TrunkNation off to another huge week. M Shadows was in yesterday, today Rival Sons (who also played 2 songs live). Rival Sons the best newer band out there, and Jay Buchanan is the best singer in rock today. Just amazing. Big things coming for these guys I know! Tomorrow Mikkey Dee, Ann Wilson & Chad Smith! All shows LIVE 2-4P ET on SiriusXM 106, and they replay 9-11P ET, and then On Demand on the SiriusXM app. Hope you guys are enjoying the daily rock talk on Volume.
By popular demand my recent interview with Michael Anthony will be my new free podcast posting this Thursday.
