Hope everyone had a great new year! Huge thanks to everyone at Rockbar in San Jose CA. I celebrated 2015 there hosting a show with Y&T and special guests Spiral Arms and Pushing The Sun. Great crowd and all the bands sounded really good. Y&T are simply amazing. 40 years on the band with it’s current lineup is still just incredible. Dave Meniketti is remarkable. Now in his 60’s he still plays and sings brilliantly. Y&T worked in some stuff in the set I have never seen them play, and I have been seeing them since ’82! This Time. Lucy, LA Rocks, All American Boy just a few of the very deep tracks they played. I was on stage with the guys to help ring in 2015 and count in the new year. I made a request for Straight Thru The Heart and Go For The Throat (they played Straight) and we all toasted the new year at what was 3A on my body clock on the W coast. Just a really fun night. Gary Holt from Exodus & Slayer was hanging and watching Y&T and it was good to catch up with him for a bit. I think Zetro was there as well but I didn’t see him. Rockbar is a new venue in the San Jose area. Really cool place. Very large club, great food and drink, really first class place. I hope they do great going forward and sincere thanks to all at Rockbar and Y&T for having me host this great night. A memorable start to the new year for sure.

    Eddie, great job on the year in review podcast. I listened to it again today because I listened to it New Year’s Day but I was not in great shape that day (LOL!). I cut loose big time New Year’s Eve drinking-wise because I knew I had a safe ride home (designated driver) and paid the price the next day. My girlfriend doesn’t really drink and never that much so she got falling down drunk for the first time and she was HILARIOUS! As bad as I felt the next day, I had to spend all day taking care of her and the massive hangover she had, which I didn’t mind doing at all because God knows she’s nursed a countless number of my bad hangovers. Anyway, I was looking forward to you doing a podcast with no guest and you just talking about music and it was great. Now I’m anxious to hear these archive interviews you talked about. How old are some of them? Are we talking 20 years or more? That would be so awesome to hear! Again, great job on the latest podcast. It’s now one of my favorites you’ve done. Happy New Year.
