10/2: GREETINGS FROM LOS ANGELES, STP, VEGAS, PETTY, MORE
Greetings from LA. Got here last night after a weekend at Louder Than Life in Kentucky shooting episode 3 of my new TBA TV show. Had a great time there, saw many fans and bands, introed and interviewed Rob Zombie and John 5, drank bourbon, ate BBQ. You will see it all next year when the show airs.Official release about this show with all details coming soon!
Arrived in LA last night and saw the horror of the Vegas shooting. As many know I love Vegas, have been there countless times, and usually stay at Mandalay Bay where I have a good friend that works in the entertainment division. One of the great things about Vegas is how wide open and anything goes it is. In this day and age that is also a huge downside to this great city for security. My sincere condolences to all impacted by this tragic tragic event. Really hard to say more because it makes no sense. As music fans that could have been any of us in any genre. And someone deranged in that scenario is going to be hard to stop, especially in a packed city like Vegas where anything goes, or so it seems. I hope for a speedy recovery for the city and those injured, and sincere condolences to families of those that died.
While I was on air today for my SiriusXM show I had Stone Temple Pilots in, covered the Vegas story, and then was given the shocking news on Tom Petty, which multiple reports are saying has died, although at the time I am writing this there still seems to be some grey area. Just a crazy day for sure, but goes without saying Tom Petty was a legend in the world of rock, and if indeed is gone, is an huge loss.
Tomorrow Tom Morello and Josh Todd are my guests. Live on SiriusXM 106 2-4P ET, replays 9-11P ET, and On Demand. Follow on twitter @EddieTrunk for more
