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.

    Although not considered Metal, Neil Giraldo is definitely a worthy guitarist.

    Eddie, you nailed it, “Precious Time,” one of the greatest guitar solo’s ever! Even 34 years later, whenever I listen to it, to this day it still gives me goose bumps! “Out -A- Touch,” another great solo from Neil. How do you choose? So many great songs/solos from Pat & Neil, do what I do, don’t choose, just enjoy them all! Hey, you can’t bang your head 24/7! Neil made me LMAO when he said the only way he’d ever get into the R&RHOF is if he paid $18 for parking, too funny! But it does suck of course that 2 of the greats like Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo aren’t in there, oh well, again, it’s their (HOF) loss! Only complaint, the audio kind of sucked, I know it was a phone interview, hopefully maybe down the road you can get them in the studio? Great interview Ed, keep up the great work.

      I 100% agree with you about his solo on “precious time”. It’s just an unbelievably perfect solo for that song. One of his best, in my opinion.
