6/22: BUMBLEFOOT, BREAKING BENJAMIN LIVE STREAM, SATRIANI PODCAST, VAMP’D VEGAS THURSDAY
Hope everyone had a great weekend and a great Father’s Day to all the fellow Dad’s out there. Thanks to all who came out to Blackthorn 51 for my appearance this past Saturday. Thanks to promoter Nicki Camp for having me. Fun hang!
Kicking off a busy week this week that starts today with my live SiriusXM show 6-10P ET on channel 39 (Hair Nation). Bumblefoot drops by and I will take plenty of your calls to discuss the Van Halen/Hagar stuff and much more.
Tomorrow I’m hosting a live YouTube chat with Benjamin Burnley from Breaking Benjamin. I had the chance to meet Ben and see his band at Rocklahoma this year for the first time. Enjoyed the band and was cool to get to know him. His label reached out to see if I would host the interview on the day of the bands new album release Dark Before Dawn. Catch Ben and I live from the NYC YouTube studios 2PM ET tomorrow. We will also take your questions. Thanks to Ben and Hollywood Records for having me host this special event.
Wednesday I head back to Vegas for a couple days. I’ll be hosting the listening party for Angel singer Frank Dimino’s upcoming solo album, The event is 6-8P at Vamp’d in Vegas and is free. Saturday I head back to Rockbar in San Jose to judge a guitar dual with fellow judges Jake E Lee and Warren DeMartini! This is free also and begins around 5.
My new podcast for the week will feature a new interview with Joe Satriani. More upcoming guests include Pat Benatar/Neil Giraldo & Billy Sheehan.
Best wishes to Vivian Campbell for a recovery from his latest bout with cancer. I texted Viv over the weekend and he is confident he will be OK, just bummed he’s missing Leppard gigs. Good luck to my old friend Steve Brown filling on until Viv returns.
Tons of stuff going on so keep an eye on my Twitter @EddieTrunk for up to the second news
