Back from Vegas and San Jose late last night. Great trip hanging with Frank Dimino, Gregg Giuffria, Paul Crook, Zach Throne, Danny Koker, Ken Ciancimino and all my buds in Vegas! Even hung with Ace Frehley one night. We didn’t know each other would be there and I had a great night with him, Frank and Gregg that was like Casablanca Records 1975! Awesome!! Was cool to host Frank’s release party and also saw a mind blowing set from guitarist Stoney Curtis at Vamp’d.

Thanks also to Richard, Jimmy, Robert and Susie at Rockbar in San Jose for having me host the Demon Guitar Rockoff Saturday night. Was a fun night with many great players. Rockbar has become my W Coast home away from home and I appreciate the great hospitality they have there not just for me, but everyone. Really great club I hope you guys check out if in that area. Hope to be back soon for more stuff there.

Live on SiriusXM 39 TRUNKNation 6-10PM ET. David Coverdale checks in live. I am missing Rush at MSG to do my radio show! THAT’s how much I love my audience!! Haha. I hope to catch Rush at a road gig soon before the tour wraps. More here soon.

RIP Chris Squire. Another MASSIVE omission by the R&R HOF. Now if they ever get their heads out of their asses and induct Yes, Chris is gone because they chose to ignore this band for decades. Pathetic! I am not a massive Yes fan, but that’s not the point! Yes was incredibly influential and brilliant at what they did. Sad something called the Rock Hall STILL hasn’t recognized that and now a key member is gone. Kind of like Jon Lord and Purple who are still waiting.. Disgusting!

  1. Thanks Eddie for mentioning Chris Squire here and pointing out that one doesn’t have to be a “huge fan” of someone to pay respect when it’s due. I happen to be a huge Yes fan (Prog is the other side of my taste to hard/heavy stuff), but again not the point. Chris was an amazing bass player and a class act, and so are you for bringing it up.

  2. Eddie,
    Great analogy between the Deep Purple and Yes situations with the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Yes and Deep Purple may actually get in one year but it’ll be bittersweet now since two guys that were the heart and soul of those bands are no longer with us. I actually like the early Yes albums mainly because I became a prog rock nerd in my late teens. Chris was great. The man had one of the mightiest bass sounds ever. He played with a pick but thumped with so much power that it dominated. R.I.P. Chris.
