Greetings from Los Angeles. Always great memories here from all the recent years shooting TMS in this city. Tonight I’ll be hosting a Battle Of The Bands at 7P. The top 2 winners get to play the Hair Nation Fest next month. Should be a fun night at The Whiskey and it is open to the public.
Tomorrow catching Guns N Roses at Dodger Stadium. Home Friday. Follow on Twitter @EddieTrunk for up to the minute info and updates.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Busy week and super busy few months coming up for me. I’m live on the air tonight 6-10P ET on SiriusXM channel 39 TRUNKNation. Jeff Pezzuti who created the Dio hologram and Wendy Dio will be my guests to discuss this new technology. Plus plenty of time for your calls.
This Tuesday-Friday I’m in Los Angeles. Wednesday is the Battle of The Bands at The Whiskey I will be hosting. Special guests joining me include Tracii Guns, Lita Ford, Brent Woods, producer Jay Ruston and more. The top two bands get to open the festival. I also hope to catch GnR at Dodger Stadium this Thursday.
If in the Syracuse area don’t forget I’ll be live on The Rebel with Dave Frisina at around 4:30P on August 25th, then at Sharkey’s starting around 6P. Chief Bigway (featuring Joey Belladonna) will perform. I’ll have books and merch for sale. Hope you join us if in the area!
Summer seems to be blowing by. Hope you all are having a good one.
Be sure to have a listen to my latest podcast. It features a new interview with Don Dokken talking about the coming, very brief, Dokken reunion. Rarely has anyone been so refreshingly honest about the motives behind a reunion! It’s a fun chat I think you will like. Grab it free on Itunes or www.PodcastOne.com
This week also includes a new interview with Glenn Hughes, who is now on his first ever US solo tour. I hosted a show with GH in NYC this past Wednesday. It is STUNNING what he can still do vocally! And his trio kicks ass as well. See them if you can! Few singers on the planet can do what Glenn can still do after all these years, amazing! New album coming soon too!
I am super excited to share with you all soon some new on a few new projects. Can’t wait, coming soon. Also for those asking about TMS apparently the “new” MTV Classic is going to show old episodes. No word still about new shows.
FM “Eddie Trunk Rocks” show this weekend features an interview with Robert Trujillo of Metallica. Debuts tonight 11P ET on Q104.3 NYC and WAAF Boston. Streaming free on both as well.
Live on SiriusXM this Monday 6-10P ET on channel 39 with the guy who invented the Dio hologram!
I’ll be in LA next Wednesday 8/17 for launch events for the Hair Nation Festival. Join me 5-7P at The Rainbow then 7-11 at The Whiskey for a Battle Of The Bands.
Just back from a week in Vegas with my family and playing catch up. Huge thanks to all for the many birthday wishes coming in. Yes I am 52 today! Crazy!! I started in radio at 18! Where did the years go? But here I am 34 years later and what am I about to do today? Radio! So I am lucky for sure to do what I love all these decades. Join me tonight 6-10P ET live on SiriusXM channel 39 for music and talk that rocks. Packed show! Guests include Brian Wheat, Don Dokken, Josh Todd and Glenn Hughes, all live! More soon.

Taking a week off the spend some time with my family for a Summer vacation. I’ll be back 8/8 (my birthday) live on SiriusXM 6-10PM ET to celebrate my birthday on the air with you guys doing what I love! So join me on channel 39 TRUNKNation. I’m sure there will be some guests as well.
New podcast this week features Jesse and Danny of DGeneration as well as my take on the end of VH1C and the start of MTV C.
Capped an amazing week last night at Citi Field as I was on the field for Mike Piazza’s jersey retirement followed by a great party in a suite during the game. Huge congrats to Mike for the HOF and Mets honors and my sincere thanks for inviting me to all!
I am aware some areas of this site are still not working properly. It has been MASSIVELY frustrating and it is being addressed. Thanks.
Follow on Twitter @EddieTrunk for news and updates. If I have time I’ll post here while away. Otherwise much more when I return 8/8.
Really excited to be guest co-hosting The Michael Kaye show today on 98.7 ESPN Radio in NYC (streaming as well on the ESPN Radio app) and simulcast on TV on the YES Network. I’ll be with my old friend Don Lagreca. Although I’m far from a sports expert I’m thankful Don asked me to sit in with him. Hope to hear from you guys and work in some rock talk as well (Don is a huge metalhead also!). This should be a blast so listen and watch and join us on air. Also just got Mike Piazza to call in at 6P!
My new podcast for the week is up now with Ted Nugent. Even if you are anti- Ted, listen, I think you will be entertained. Free on Itunes or www.podcastone,com.
