Caught Yngwie Malmsteen this past Tuesday in NJ as the Guitar Gods tour rolled into Bergen PAC. Yngwie still brings it big time both as a player and performer. Band was great as well. Did an hour and forty minute set with all the “hits” as well as some cool jams. He also did a couple bluesy tunes which I really really liked. Yngwie is one of the all time shred kings no doubt, but I really love when he slows down a bit and gets a little more melodic. Just stunning after 30 years to still see this guy do what he does so well. I unfortunately missed Gary Hoey and Bumblefoot but did see them join the end jam on Deep Purple “Burn”. If you are into guitar playing amazing players no doubt! I posted photos on my twitter and Instagram.

Headed to WI and IL this weekend. Hosting Rockesha in Waukesha WI this Saturday and also a show in Elgin IL this Sunday. Details and links on my site. I am not sure what my availability will be yet for meet and greets at each event so please follow on Twitter @EddieTrunk if going and I will send updates as I get them in the day. I will be traveling with both of my books as well if you’d like to purchase one. See you this weekend if attending these shows.

My first ever podcast launches next month! “The Eddie Trunk Podcast” will be available via Podcast One and free on all the usual platforms worldwide. First one to post 7/10 and details on each weeks TBA. Excited to add this component to my outlets and look forward to doing some different stuff from time to time with the podcast as well. More details soon.

Both of my books still available directly from me and signed and personalized. Just hit the Books tab or banner on this site for order info.

Have a nice weekend all. I’m going back to unpacking boxes from my move. Ever tell you how much moving sucks….?
