12/17: PUNKY MEADOWS PODCAST, KISSMAS SPECIAL, TMS CHRISTMAS PARTY, Y&T NYE
Excited to announce I have a brand new podcast exclusive interview with Angel guitarist Punky Meadows posting tomorrow on The Eddie Trunk Podcast! Outside of a few interviews Punky has been quite a reclusive figure for decades now. If you were into Angel, who released 6 albums on Casablanca in the 70’s, this is an interview you will love! He talks about all sorts of stuff including his offer to join Kiss, what he has been up to since the band broke up, and what he is about to do next. I often say Angel is a band people either worshiped or never really heard of since they never had a big hit single. But even if you aren’t in the know about this bands music and groundbreaking stage shows you should have a listen and discover what they were about. If Angel had lasted another couple years (they ended around 1980 with an appearance in the film Foxes) until the birth of MTV their story may have been very different. It will be available as all my podcast are free and worldwide starting tomorrow (just after Midnight Pacific tonight) via Itunes or at www.podcastone.com to stream or download. Thanks for making my podcast such a success in it’s early stages. It is the perfect forum to do an in depth interview with an artist like Punky for the world to hear! Check out all the past episodes as well, all 100% free!
