11/11: SQUIER PT 2 PODCAST, MACALPINE BENEFIT, TMS, BUFFALO, SYRACUSE, MORE
Huge response to part 1 of my podcast with Billy Squier from my archives. Part 2 goes up tomorrow. As usual it is free worldwide via Itunes or www.podcastone.com . Just search The Eddie Trunk Podcast. Upcoming podcasts include Richie Kotzen, Rickey Medlocke, Michael Monroe and more.
I’ll be premiering a brand new track from The Last In Line this Monday on my SiriusXM show. The band is the original Dio band with singer Andrew Freeman. Very good new album from these guys. Much like Black Star Riders who were born out of Thin Lizzy, TLIL will play classic Dio but also has some killer new music as you are about to hear. Thrilled to have the US premiere this Monday. The album is out in Feb and the band played the Def Leppard Cruise in Jan which I will be hosting.
The benefit I’m hosting for Tony Macalpine in LA is on sale now. Tom Morello has just been added to the jam. This is going to be a special night for a great cause. Please come out if in the LA area 12/12 to The Wiltern. Then the next night is Lemmy’s 70th! 12/14 it’s Trunk Nation live again from LA on SiriusXM!
Just had a great meeting with my agent and the producer for TMS. Hope to have some news for you about future episodes soon. Won’t be before early next year however. Enjoy the replays in the meantime on VH1 C and thanks for your support and interest in the show. When I know you’ll know.
Orders for signed copies of either of my books as holiday gifts are coming in. Hit the Books tab or banner on this site for order info and remember to put Vol 1 or 2 with the order. US shipping only.
I’ll be in Buffalo (for the first time in 30 years) and Syracuse (for the first time ever!) this weekend with Don & Jim. Hope to see you at The Waiting Room or Palace Theater if in these areas. Info on the home page.
And THANK YOU to the REAL rock stars, our Veterans! Appreciate your service!
Thank you, Eddie, for these podcasts with Billy. I’m a lifelong fan, so it was great to finally see (or hear, rather) that interview with him about his career. You didn’t get to “Happy Blue” though, which I always said was as different from his other music as his other music is different from everyone else’s.
*sidenote* I got my drivers license in ’89, and from then until about two years ago, my license plates read BLY-SQYR. I sent them to Roger Chouinard (Bobby’s nephew) when I took ’em off the car.
Anyway, thanks again – made my day listening to the chat.
I really like the winter runs of TMS you guys have done the last few years.
It’s a great way to fill in the lull between the Super Bowl and MLB’s Opening Day.
Loved the Billy Squier podcast.
