Back from the ATL Kiss Expo. Great time, thank you to all the amazing fans I met! Needless to say by now you know I scored the first Vinnie Vincent interview in 22 years. I enjoyed speaking with him, only wish I had more time. I’ve spent a bunch of time already talking about this past weekend on my radio shows. I’ll also recap it on my podcast this Thursday and post the audio there. There is also video I hope to have soon of the entire interview. No time to post more thoughts here, but listen to the podcast Thursday for more thoughts and the interview as well. Needless to say the entire experience was very interesting and I hope to be able to do a much more in depth interview with Vinnie soon. Thanks to Vinnie for the interview and Derek Christopher for having me at the Expo. I enjoyed speaking and hanging with all the fellow Kiss fans. Had a blast.
Also saw BLS in Atlanta. The killed it. Great venue too called Centerv Stage. Good seeing all the guys and seeing Zakk crush as usual. New album out now.
Had a great interview with Joe Elliott and Neal Schon today on my SiriusXM Volume show. That interview is On Demand and I’ll post as a podcast next week. Great seeing them both. Journey/Leppard should be a great tour! Also great having Steve Lynch of Autograph and Randy and Felix from Zebra on my Hair Nation show tonight.

If you are attending the Expo I will be speaking and doing a Q&A on Saturday 1:30-2:30P. I’ll also have a table for meet & greet/signing as well. So come say hello.
Back live for TrunkNation on Volume tomorrow 2P ET on 106.
Had a great visit by Rick Allen on Friday to my Volume show. Talked all sorts of great stuff. Hear it again tomorrow 8-10P ET on Volume 106 on SiriusXM or On Demand on the app. Coming soon to the podcast also. Tom Keifer on my current podcast.
Please note my show on channel 39 is live every week when I am able to do it. I am now a full time employee of SiriusXM and Volume is my daily show live every day. I will be back on 39 on 1/22. This show, since it’s live, will happen when I can and it does not conflict with company holidays, travel for Volume, vacation and remotes for Volume. I urge you if you like the show on 39 you will LOVE the daily show on EVERY DAY on 106 and LIVE with replays! If you only have the SiriusXM music channels please try and upgrade to get 106. Thanks.
I will be broadcasting this Friday from the Atlanta Kiss Expo. Vinnie Vincent is expected to join me on air. This is not my event and can’t promise, but I have been told Vinnie is willing to come on. So be sure to listen this Friday live 2-4P ET. Probably been 30 years since I spoke with him! I will also be doing my own Q&A on Saturday at the expo. More when I know.
RIP Fast Eddie Clarke. I didn’t know him well, but was in touch via email. Seemed like a nice man. Very sad all 3 of the classic Motorhead lineup now gone. ABSURD that whenever the R&R HOF gets their head out of their ass and puts Motorhead in, they will all be gone, because they chose to snub them for years. Disgusting! RIP Fast Eddie.
The recent video of Kiss making an interviewer remove his Iron Maiden shirt is beyond sad. How much ego and how warped must you be to make someone do that? In 14 seasons of TMS all we did was wear other rock shirts while interviewing bands. Hundreds of guests, and not one ever said a thing or felt threatened by it.. It is truly pathetic. Sad to humiliate that guy like that. So many things wrong with it wouldn’t know where to begin. But it says a lot about the mentality and how those guys think and the unreal sensitivity.. can you imagine Steve Harris asking a guy to remove his Kiss shirt?..wow!
Just realized it’s been a bit since I posted here as I was on the Moody Blues Cruise and then just jumped right back into other work. As usual Twitter ( @EddieTrunk ) is the place for up to the second news and info as it happens. Thanks to all the fans and bands I met on the cruise. Was a very mellow way to kick off my first of 3. Saw a bunch of cool bands, hung often with Frank Hannon who co-hosted my SiriusXM show with me from the ship, and discovered some artists I was unaware of. Randy Hansen’s Hendrix tribute was a real highlight, as was Thee R&R Residency as usual. Was cool to get out of my comfort zone and interview artists like Al Stewart, Lighthouse, Moody Blues, Rod Argent, Alan Parsons and many more. Next up is Cruise To The Edge to cover Prog, then Monsters Of Rock Cruise which I also host. Hope you guys enjoy the broadcasts coming up! All shows live 2-4P ET on 106 Volume on SiriusXM. Replay 9-11P ET. Also On Demand on the SiriusXM app.
Rick Allen of Def Leppard joins me in studio this Friday for my Volume show. Live 2-4P ET on 106. Call in and talk to Rick. He will join me 2:30-3:30.
For those that listen to my Monday show on 39 (Hair Nation) that will return 5-8P ET on 1/22. Please listen daily on 106. If you don’t get 106 consider upgrading so you can hear the daily show. Volume on 106 is now my full time position for SiriusXM. The show on 39 is and always has been on Monday’s only. So it will be pre empted for travel and events for Volume and also holidays, as is the case this Monday.
I will be at the Atlanta Kiss Expo speaking and doing my Volume show that Friday live. I have no further details on anything beyond that as of now. Hoping to very soon and will post.
I will be at NAMM in CA 1/23-28 to host Hall Of HM History on the Wednesday and Ronnie Montrose Remembered on Saturday at Observatory. Hope to see you in S CA. Also doing the Volume show from there as well on weekdays.
