11/4: KOTZEN, HALFORD, VANDENBERG, BOOKS, NEW APPEARANCES.
Thanks to Richie Kotzen and Rob Halford for being guests last night on my SiriusXM show. Richie is now on a solo tour of the US after returning from Europe. I’ll be hosting his show at BBs in NYC tomorrow night. If you only know Richie from The Winery Dogs he has a HUGE catalog of solo music that includes his early Shrapnel shred stuff, many solo albums that have many styles of music, and even some one off band stuff. His set now is played with a trio and is mostly his last few albums which are among my favorites. The guy is a pretty mind blowing all around talent and you should check him out solo if you have the chance.
Halford was very pumped about the current Priest tour and it was good to speak with him about a bunch of stuff. It sounds like Priest is far from done and he said they have already written a few things on the road for another possible album. This interview will also be included in my FM/syndicated show in less than 2 weeks and available for AA members of this site. Great to speak with Rob after finally seeing the Priest show and see and hear him sounding and feeling so well. He did go through a tough time with some surgeries. This is one of the all time greats on stage and as a total class person off. Honored to have him as a friend and supporter (he wrote the forward for my first book and it was Rob’s idea for Priest to play a free private show in honor of the 25th anniversary of my radio show. Still one of the great highlights of my life!).
