Super busy week just wrapped up with a great trip to Toronto and killer interviews with Bob Ezrin and Triumph. If you missed these shows grab them now On Demand on the SiriusXM app. Some great stuff! Thanks to all at SiriusXM Canada for the support. Was a great visit to Toronto and hope to be back soon (I spoke in detail on the radio show about much of this). I’ll podcast the Ezrin and Triumph interview soon as well.
New podcast now up with Phil Campbell, John Bush and Jack Blades.
FM radio show debuts tonight on Q104.3 NYC and WAAF Boston 11P ET. Mastodon is the guest.
Sorry for the brief update, super busy catching up on stuff. My Twitter is a good way to keep up more.. thanks
Took a ride out to Jim Thorpe PA last night. My first time at the venue Penns Peak. Heard it was a great spot and it is. So glad I got to see UFO and Saxon on a big stage, with lights and big PA. It was GREAT! Sold out crowd and I thank you guys for all the amazing support. Got to intro the band at all the shows. I also want to thanks to crews of UFO and Saxon for being so cool and hospitable! This tour did extremely well for both bands (shout out to opener Jared James Nichols who was also killer), and I would not be surprised if this bill isn’t back in the US for more soon. Lets hope!
Headed to Toronto tomorrow right after my live show on SiriusXM. TrunkNation Canadian Invasion! This Tuesday legendary producer Bob Ezrin is my guest, Wednesday the much talk about Triumph reunion show! These shows live from Toronto will air as all my shows do, LIVE 2-4P ET on channel 106 Volume, replay 9-11P ET, then On Demand on the SiriusXM app. Then in a week or so on my podcast. This is really my first trip to Toronto since I was a little kid. Should be fun! This Thursday Saigon Kick joins me in studio back in NYC, then I host them that night at Webster Hall.
Just wrapped up an incredible week of guests on TrunkNation on SiriusXM 106 that included Chris Jericho, Ted Nugent, Jack Blades, Neil Geraldo, Biff Byford, Phil Mogg and Jared James Nichols.

Had an great couple nights at BB Kings hosting UFO, Saxon and Jared James Nichols to sold out crowds. All the bands sounded great and Jared is one to watch for sure. Everyone knows how special UFO are to me and they were sooo good! Everyone played amazingly well and Phil sang so great. Slightly different sets each night too. Thursday they opened with two Chapman songs in a row! Thanks to Eddoe Oertell and all the guys in UFO for the hospitality and tolerating my fan boy geekness! And special thanks to Phil Mogg for doing my radio show. Phil doesn’t love interviews but did his only one of the tour on TrunkNation, and he says his only US one for the next 18 months (he bet me $50 haha). Two more sold out shows on this tour and then hopefully they are back soon. It was a great tour and package with these three bands.
Had a great talk today with Ted Nugent on my daily radio show on SiriusXM Volume 106. Also was joined by Wall St Journal writer Neil Shah talking about the aging business of rock. Yesterday I was joined by Jack Blades and Chris Jericho. The guests keep coming this week. Tomorrow Neil Geraldo and Biff Byford in studio, Thursday Phil Mogg of UFO in studio. Next week live from Toronto on Tuesday with Bob Ezrin and Wednesday with all 3 original members of Triumph in studio!
