7/9: BENATAR/GIRALDO PODCAST, DENVER AREA APPEARANCE & RUSH THIS WEEKEND, TMS MARATHON, MORE
One of the reasons I decided to start a podcast exactly a year ago was to have a platform for artists I like and respect that are a bit outside the world of music I usually deal with on my radio and TV shows. Prior to That Metal Show I was a host on VH1 Classic for years and interviewed every genre of artist. Although hard rock and metal is my personal favorite, I also like some other stuff, and even if I am not a huge fan love the conversation and variety at times. My new podcast for the week that posted today with Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo is a perfect example of this. I do like Pat and Neil’s music, especially the harder stuff. I saw them live a few years ago and it was amazing how well she could still sing the stuff. She is an icon of female rock and another MASSIVE snub by the R&R HOF. Hope you guys enjoy this conversation with two talented musicians who have somehow managed to keep a marriage and working relationship going over 30 years. It is up now free as always on www.Podcastone.com or on Itunes. Just search The Eddie Trunk Podcast. And thanks for a great first year and supporting it each week!
Just found out VH1 Classic will air a That Metal Show marathon this Saturday night 7P-1A ET. Not sure what episodes will run but set those DVRs now and enjoy. Info on new shows when I get it.
Headed to Denver tonight. I’ll be signing and selling my books and merch tomorrow night (Friday) 9-11P at Buffalo Rose in Golden. Babylon AD and more play live. Then Saturday I am seeing Rush in Denver. Finally catching this tour and can’t wait! The Rush camp was nice enough to invite me to the soundcheck and I may even get a few minutes interview with one of the guys for radio and podcast. Follow on Twitter @EddieTrunk for info as it happens this weekend! And hope to hang with you if in the area tomorrow night at Buffalo Rose! I KNOW I’ll be seeing many Saturday at the Pepsi Center!
Live SiriusXM show this Monday 6-10P ET channel 39 TRUNKNation. Randy Blythe in studio, Jeff LaBar of Cinderella and Cormac Neeson of The Answer call in.
Kind of off topic here, but supposedly Sebastian Bach is suggesting that concert venues ban cell phones at rock shows, saying that they’re distracting to both the crowd and the performer. I have to agree with him on this. It’s totally out of hand in my opinion.
Hell is For Children is vastly underrated and Promises in the Dark is still killer after all these years.
According to Classic Rock magazine, Blackmore is suing Purple for over $1 Million, based on royalties. Also sounds like he’s somewhat serious about playing some Rock music again. http://ultimateclassicrock.com/ritchie-blackmore-deep-purple-royalties-lawsuit/?trackback=fbshare_top
“Love Is A Battlefield” is one of the silliest videos I’ve ever seen.
