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..
