Greetings from San Louis Potosi Mexico. Tonight is show 2 of the Deep Purple tour here that I have been honored to be asked to host. It has been amazing being on this tour already and 2 more weeks to go. I have met SO many amazing Mexican fans and taken many many pictures. Last night Ian Gillan was nice enough to invite me to an amazing dinner. I sat with Ian 4 hours eating, drinking and hearing stories from a true rock legend. Soaked it up like a sponge! All the Purple guys have been great so far and sound amazing, and In Flames opening is different but working well actually. Cool guys also. I have also been flying to come cities private with Purple, but will also be driving to a few due to differences in our schedules (I have to do radio most weekdays). But so far so good early on and promoter George Santos and his crew assigned to me (Julio and Fidel) have been great! And don’t forget my daily SiriusXM show will still be live most days 2-4P ET on 106 (no Hair Nation show on Monday for a few weeks). So listen then or to the replay and follow all the action as well. Purple members will be on soon also. More via Twitter @ EddieTrunk . Updates here when I can. Also if you are in Mexico and coming to these shows I usually do a free meet & greet by merch in the lobby’s around 8P for 45 minutes or so.
Starting tomorrow night I am about to embark on a tour of Mexico with Deep Purple. This is an amazing opportunity offered to me by the promoter Rock Nation. I’ll be hosting the bands shows throughout the country (dates on the home page) starting in Monterrey this Friday night. In Flames is the special guest. I’ve long had great support from Mexican rock fans who hear my shows and watched That Metal Show. It will be great to be able to really spend some time seeing the country with an iconic rock band on their final tour. If you are in Mexico and attending the shows hope to see you. I will also be doing my daily SiriusXM show on Volume live as usual 2-4P ET from the various cities and hopefully with some band members on air. Be sure to follow on Twitter for up to the second info @EddieTrunk . And if you listen on Volume I’ll keep you posted daily there as well. Please note my Hair Nation show on Monday’s is off till 11/26 due to travel. The daily 106 show is unchanged and live daily.
Joe Perry is my new podcast posting tomorrow. More from Mexico when I can post here.
Back from a great trip to LA where I did my SiriusXM Volume show from the Rainbow last Wednesday with the legend Joe Perry of Aerosmith joining me! Joe joins a long list of legends who have come to the Rainbow for my monthly Trunk Nation LA Invasion shows. Also joining me were John 5, Gilby Clarke, Paul Geary and Wendy Dio. Hear this show now On Demand on the SiriusXM app. Next one tentative for 11/28!
Dio bowling last Thursday was a blast and for a great cause. Honored to host these events twice a year, and this year my team won! And what a team it was! Actor Jack Black, Tom Morello, Adam Jones of Tool, Doug Aldrich and Geezer Butler! So good to see them all. And thanks to Steve our ebay winner who joined the team and made a 7K contribution to the cancer fund. Thanks to all!
Luke Spiller of The Struts joins me live tomorrow on my SiriusXM Volume show. Live 2-4P ET on 106.
This Friday I am in Houston to host the Hair Nation tour stop at HOB, Saturday in Tulsa to host Kix at IDL, Sunday back to Houston to host Foamhenge at Karbach Brewing. Hope to see you if attending these events.
New podcast Thursday is with Aldo Nova.
Don’t forget TrunkFest airing on Wednesday’s 7P ET AXS TV. Season 2 in production now for next year!
Just back from a fun trip to El Dorado AR where I hosted Sammy Hagar, Bret Michaels and Lita Ford at MAD Amphitheater. Was a great time and really nice facility. Brand new venues that have big things planned and it was great to be a part of their first shows in the new buildings. The entire staff and crew were great to me and was great seeing all the bands who are old friends. Everyone sounded great and the crowd was killer. Look forward to see what develops in this area for rock in the future.
Back live tomorrow on SiriusXM 106 Volume 2-4P ET and then 5-8P ET on 39. Aldo Nova joins me on the Volume show in studio. Hasn’t been heard from in ages, but that changes tomorrow on TrunkNation!
Geezer Butler has joined my all star bowling team for the Dio Cancer Fund this Thursday in LA. The team will also have Tom Morello, Adam Jones (Tool) and Doug Aldrich. Plus a winner on the ebay auction to bowl with us. Should be an amazing night for a great cause and honored to host and bowl. Great having Geezer join for the first time!

Today was the 2nd anniversary of the Volume channel on SiriusXM where my daily show is heard. It has been a total blast being one of the original daily live shows for this channel. The growth of the channel and my show has been amazing. Way too many fun cool things to even try and mention here. If you are a listener you know how cool it is to have a live daily rock talk show to call into and hear interviews and more. Thanks to all the listeners, artists who have come on, and the staff of SiriusXM for having TrunkNation as a big part of this amazing ongoing ride. On to year 3!

Had a crazy weekend last week. If you heard my Volume show on Monday you know all the details. But in a nutshell here I hosted Sebastian Bach at the IDL in Tulsa last Friday. Great crowd and Bas was in great voice. it’s amazing how well he can sing the old Skid Row stuff. He set the bar so high as a kid on those albums and still really nails it. Shout out to Monte Pittman and One bad Son for great opening sets as well. Back in Tulsa this Friday for Tom Keifer at IDL. Great time hosting these shows, come on out!
Saturday I shot TrunkFest (for season 2 next year) and Sammy Hagar’s High Tide Beach Party. Had major stress getting there (which had nothing to do with the event), but once I made it had a blast. The fans were incredible. Sold out 14K strong on the beach in Huntington Beach CA. Amazing setting and weather. I didn’t see much of the sets because I was working. But I did get to intro Sammy which was a huge rush and I thank him for that. Interviewed Sammy, Michael Anthony, Kevin Cronin, Eddie Money, Vince Neil and more. Congrats to Sammy for a great debut festival. It’s amazing what this man can do at almost 71! His set included VH, Montrose, Chickenfoot (with Joe Satriani!), Zeppelin, solo stuff and more. Incredible! I’ll see Sammy 10/19 in El Dorado AR again! This was all recapped in detail on my radio show Monday. If you missed it grab it On Demand.
After some years of great improvement the R&R Hall has dropped the ball big time for rock fans this year for the nominees. Nice to see Leppard finally on the ballot and thanks to Joe Elliott for joining me today on my Volume show to discuss. But Priest is not even on the ballot again, no Maiden, no Benatar, it’s just ridiculous. Listen to my Volume show from today for more and Joe’s interview.
New podcast Thursday will be Steve Vai and Sebastian Bach from my last Volume show from the Rainbow in LA.
