Just home from NYC and the taping of the latest TMS episode. Mick Mars did the entire hour and was great. Kurdt from Metal Church joins us on set for a Top 5 of Motley songs, and Tom Keifer played some great bluesy licks as our guest musician. Another good one for the current TMS season. See it premiere this Saturday night 11/10C on VH1C.

Also huge thanks to Eddie Van Halen who gave us an EVH rig for the set! Eddie has yet to appear on the show but honored just to know he watches and that he gave us some great gear for our players. OF COURSE our door is wide open to him if/when he wants to join us for TMS! Truly hope one day he does. Our throwdown was Too Fast vs Shout. Great audience tonight as well. Tons of energy. Very cool of Mick and Tom to also stick around and meet & greet with us with the fans after. Kurdt couldn’t because he had a gig in Brooklyn tonight.  Also many asking to hear audio of my two hour interview with Mick on SiriusXM show last night. It should be on the SiriusXM app soon and hopefully online soon as well. Thanks.

  1. As many guest guitarists on TMS I’ve seen using the EVH 5150 rig, I thought one had been purchased for the show if the guests opted to not bring their own amp. Either EVH or a close source to him must have tipped him off how many artists were using his gear, so he figured with all the advertising he’s gotten on TMS that he might as well make a donation. It’s looking a bit brighter that perhaps EVH might even be on the show one day.

  2. I have not heard many interviews with Mars when the other guys are not around, they sort of shut him out big personalities. good to hear those type of interviews and hear the perspective of people other than the main guys. Hope he stays healthy.

  3. I was able to listen to the Mick Mars interview on SXM radio yesterday (Thursday) – they do have it in the replay mode if you look under the Shows By Channel -> Hair Nation -> Trunk Nation with Eddie Trunk. Absolutely a great interview!! It was so nice to listen to Mick since we rarely hear from him. He has such a great perspective on everything and is a wonderful inspiration to so many. Thank you Eddie for spending so much time with him for us – looking forward to the TMS episode!

  4. Shout is my pick for the throwdown. I’ve never looked more forward to an episode. Wife getting kicked off the telly this Saturday night! “Simmer down honey….Mick is talking”. lol
