This weekends FM radio show features an interview with Mark Tremonti and a ton of new and classic metal. Premieres tonight 11P on WAAF/Boston and Q104.3 NYC. If going to Priest in NJ tonight crank it on the way home. I won’t make the show tonight but hosting Priest in FL 10/30 at The Hard Rock so will catch them then. Full list of all stations airing my FM show in Live and On The Air on the site.

On vacation next week so this Monday’s SiriusXM show is pre recorded.

Many questions about AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd not being in the bands new video or in the press shot. Apparently Phil had a family emergency to tend to. Let’s hope all is okay and he is still in the band. It’s just weird they wouldn’t have at least photo shopped him into the new press photo.  Those asking about AC/DC live dates they will happen next year. I like the new song, it sounds like……AC/DC!

  1. Also, all reports from the Priest tour are not as rosy as Eddie conveyed last week. Glen is having trouble. He has the shakes in his right hand and his playing suffers in spots. I’ve heard this from multiple sources on multiple stops on the tour. Getting old sucks.

    1. This is true. I saw all 3 NY/CT area shows the past week and a half. Age, sadly, is catching up with Glenn in a very cruel way. He’s clearly not able to play like he used to. They have even slowed ALL of the songs in the set down a bit so he can keep up. 🙁

      That being said, the shows have been INCREDIBLE. I took a friend to the Izod show who had never seen Priest before and he was completely blown away by how good the band was, especially Halford. (It sounded to me Rob was fighting a bit of a cold or laryngitis, but still was at 95% to me).

      I don’t expect Eddie to ask Glenn or to really comment about Glenn’s health. At the end of the day, it’s none of our business. But all I can say is that I *don’t* believe we will get another Priest album after this because of Glenn’s declining abilities (you have no idea how much that crushes me to say that – Glenn was the reason I picked up the guitar 30+ years ago and has ALWAYS been my guitar hero and always will be). I hope I’m wrong.

  2. Judas Preist and AC/DC and Iron Maiden are tough guys. The only way they will not put out another album is if its time for them to go to heaven. I think that JP will live beyond Rob/Ian and Glen being in the band.
