4/21: RIP PRINCE, CHILLER IN NJ THIS WEEKEND, ANGEL IN VEGAS, MORE.
More tragic music news in what has been a brutal 2016 with the shocking news Prince has passed away. Regardless of what music you are into it would be pretty hard to deny the incredible talent of this artist. As a performer, writer, producer, musician, he was simply one of the best. There were things about some of his music I really liked. Super underrated guitar player and he bridged so many genres. Just take a look at the many rock artists who were fans and the reactions on social media. His influence was massive and his output was incredible. I always wished he would have made a straight up rock record. Some of his songs had elements of rock just screaming to get out to me. Like I said, he walked many lines. And who knows, maybe he did make a rock record and it never came out? I can’t imagine what’s in his archives and hopefully we will find out soon. Another sad day for music fans. RIP Prince.
Just found out the Chiller show is this weekend in NJ at the Parsippany Sheraton. I’m going to have a spot in the music room selling and signing my books and maybe a shirt or two. Right now I plan on being there tomorrow (Friday) 5P-around 10P. I am not sure if I will make it yet Saturday or Sunday. Please keep an eye on my Twitter @EddieTrunk for changes, additions and updates. Thanks.
New podcast up now with Ace Frehley. Plus I talk Axl/AC/DC and more. Free on www.podcastone.com or Itunes now worldwide!
Thanks for dealing with the growing pains of the new site. Kinks getting all worked out and it will get better and smoother going forward. I also will start including FM playlists again soon in that section.
New appearances just added include Vegas Rocks Awards 5/15 and hosting Jason Bonham at Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood FL 6/8. At Vegas Rock I’ll be presenting an award to Angel, appearing together for the first time in decades! I want to thank the guys for bringing me out to do this. An honor and can’t wait to see them all. By the way, if an Angel fan the coming Punky solo album is really good!
