4/22: GREETINGS FROM LA AND THE GOLDEN GODS AWARDS.
Greetings from Los Angeles. Here for a couple more days to host the Golden Gods Awards with Don & Jim tomorrow. Just came from rehearsal at Club Nokia. Should be a great night tomorrow with many stars from rock music as well as TV and movies in attendance. Looks like Nick Cage is giving Axl Rose his award tomorrow and Duff McKagan is going to play once again witb GnR. Duff is not fully in Guns, just filling in while Tommy Stinson performs with The Replacements. Should be cool to see Duff on stage with Guns once again though. They are going to play up to as many as eight songs tomorrow night I’m told. Zakk Wylde and Joan Jett are among the other performers scheduled. Tons of artists attending and giving or getting awards. Me, Don and Jim will host and also do some backstage interviews that will be seen during the TV telecast. Many have asked me how this can all be seen? It will be streamed live tomorrow as it happens on www.vh1classic.com starting at 8PM Pacific/11 ET (pre show 1 hour before). Then an edited version of the event will air on VH1C May 24th at 8PM ET. I’m sure many repeat airings after that on both VH1C and Palladia. I’ll keep you guys posted best I can via my Twitter as the night unfolds @EddieTrunk I’ve attended this show several times since it happened but this is my first time as a host for it and it should be a blast and hopefully a great celebration of hard rock and metal! More soon.
Feeling like Joan should have her own full TMS episode. Just the conversation surrounding her singing for Nirvana would be worth an entire episode.
I agree, Joan Jett would be a good guest. It would be interesting to perhaps have her and Lita Ford on the same show if they would be willing to do it. Speaking of bands I wouldn’t mind seeing on the show that have a female lead singer, I wouldn’t mind seeing Nightwish on the show either. That band is great. I do have one suggestion. If you are going to continue the Throwdown section at the end of the show, make it three minutes instead of two. The guest rarely have enough time for them all to give their entire opinion.
