Sorry for the late update here. Been busy on the road as usual, this time in Tulsa. Had a great 3 days hosting Rocklahoma. Weather was hot, but no storms, so that’s good. I discussed at length the bands and what went on on my SiriusXM show. Hope you guys were able to listen. Much too much to type here. But loved the diversity and it was great seeing so many bands and fans for year 11 of this great festival, and the only one that also includes 80s acts! Look forward to year 12!
Had a blast doing my daily SiriusXM show from the Hard Rock in Tulsa. One more broadcast tomorrow from here before flying home tomorrow night. The response and volume of calls to my daily show on 106 has been phenomenal, so thanks. Great talking rock with you all every day live 2-4P ET on 106 (and don’t forget the nightly replay 9-11P ET).
New podcast tomorrow features Billy Duffy of The Cult and Jason Hook of FFDP, who also talks about the great film Hired Gun he was a producer on. Free as usual www.podcastone.com and Itunes.
Hosting Stryper tonight at IDL Ballroom in Tulsa, home to NJ tomorrow.
Well here we are with Rocklahoma weekend upon us. I'[ve hosted this festival every year, and great to be headed back for year 11. Rocklahoma is unique in that it’s the only festival that includes 80’s acts with more current bands and mixes them all. Very cool! I’ll see you out there if attending. I’ll also be sticking around to host Stryper 5/30 at IDL Ballroom in Tulsa. Hope you can join me. Also just announced I’ll be doing a meet and greet with The Cult this Thursday 5/24 inside the Tulsa Hard Rock Casino at Riffs FREE 8-9P. Come say hi to me and The Cult guys!
My Van Halen Top 20 show debuts tomorrow 2-4P ET & replays 9-11P ET and On Demand on SiriusXM app. Listen on Volume channel 106 to my top 20, then call in Thursday and Friday 2PET with your Top 20’s! Should be a fun one! Then all 3 of my Trunk Top 20’s replay for the holiday weekend on Volume (Kiss, Aerosmith, VH).
Really psyched that some teasers are now out for my new TV show on AXS TrunkFest. Debuts 7/1 9:30P ET! First episode is Sturgis. Just watched an advance and it came out great!
I’m going to be traveling for the next week or so and will update here when I can, but follow on Twitter @EddieTrunk for up to the minute updates!
Want to thank all the guys in Def Leppard for having me at their rehearsal yesterday for their coming tour with Journey. Vivian invited me down to see the full production and I ended up doing my radio show from their rehearsal. Joe and Phil stopped in and joined me on the air from backstage. It’s pretty damn cool to see a giant stage show and world class rock band play in a totally empty arena. As I’ve said many times, regardless of what you think of their music, you have to respect this band. What they’ve been through and endured, the music they make, and how they have come back to being a major act again. It’s a unique thing to be in the inner circle of a band and see them all still use the same dressing room, hang out and talk to each other, and respect each other. And that’s what Leppard do. They also do something truly amazing, play and sing all LIVE! In the era of tons of bands running pre recorded tracks live, Leppard actually SING! And if any band could be excused putting some vocals on tracks it would be Leppard given how their albums were recorded. But they do the work and do it live warts and all. It sounds amazing and they deserve huge props for it. All the guys were looking and sounding great and in great spirits and I appreciate them having me. The tour starts Monday in CT.

Caught Chris Robinson and As The Crow Fly’s last night at The Wiltern. Amazing band and set of Black Crowes music to a packed house! Chris remains a great singer and frontman and the entire band was killer. Huge fan of Audley Freed from his days in Cry Of Love, so was good to see him ripping, and young gun Marcus King equally amazing. See these guys when you can!
Catch Steven Adler tonight. Opening is Classless Act, featuring Slash’s son on drums! (I feel old!). Report on the radio tomorrow.
