Want to send my best to all in the Oklahoma City area devastated by the recent tornado. Truly horrific to see what has happened in that area. Oklahoma has become a regular stop for me since I started hosting Rocklahoma back in 2007. I have been to Tulsa and OKC areas many many times for various events and everyone has always been so cool to me and I have had so many great times. My thoughts go out to everyone who are dealing with a huge loss of life and property in the Moore area. I have several friends in that area I have been trying to reach since everything happened but communications seem to me down understandably. I am flying into Tulsa tomorrow night and will once again be hosting Rocklahoma in Pryor this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It’s something I look forward to every year, but this year we will all be keeping those impacted in our thoughts. The festival will go on as scheduled and the area around it was not impacted by the storms. One of the things I do every year on stage during Rocklahoma is to auction off signed items from the bands to benefit local charities. Needless to say that will be even more important this weekend and we will all do our best to help how we can.

See you this weekend in Pryor for Rocklahoma 2013. Follow on Twitter @EddieTrunk for reports from the event, photos and much more. Enjoy the weekend, be safe, and help OK if you can by donating to the Red Cross.

  1. As a native of Moore I can tell you that we appreciate the thoughts and prayers from Eddie and everyone else out there. Words can’t adequately describe how horrific this storm has been, and unfortunately this is an area that has seen this before. There are many charitable organizations that are providing relief to those affected, so if you can please donate just a little to help those that have quite literally lost everything. Eddie, we love you here in Oklahoma, so horns up this weekend and I hope that you have a great festival!

  2. Eddie, you should stick around and visit us in Moore! June 7th at the Diamond Ballroom we have Kenny Wayne Shepherd doing a benefit concert for the relief effort – should be a great time!! God bless the rocknroll community – they rise to the occasion and are always willing to take care of each other. Oh, and Tesla will be at the Diamond on June 11th, and you know that will be a kick ass concert!
