Had a great time appearing at the first ever Food Truck & Rock Carnival in my home state of NJ this past weekend. As someone who travels often it was nice to have a huge rock event right in my backyard. The lineup was big time and as a result people responded big time. Great weather helped as well and both days were packed. Hearing over 20K each day to see Slash, STP, Godsmack, Anthrax, BLS and many more on the main stage. Since this event was in NJ it had a very Jersey flavor which was cool for us locals. There was a stage dedicated to the now defunct club Birch Hill that included mostly 80’s bands (Slaughter, Lita, Kix, Faster Pussycat, Stephen Pearcy and many more) and local legends Prophet and TT Quick. A few first year growing pains with organization but all in all a massive success. I did a speaking Q&A session and introed some bands both days. I want to say a huge thanks to Anthrax who pulled me out on stage and thanked me for being their first interview over 30 years ago and playing their music in the area that long. They then played “Lone Justice” for me since I had been requesting they play it for 30 years! Great friends and a really nice moment I appreciated. So good seeing so many bands and fans and hanging with everyone.

Back live on SiriusXM 39 TRUNK Nation tonight 6-10PM ET / 3-7 Pacific. Guests include Tom Keifer, Mark Slaughter and Geoff Tate all checking in live. I’ll also world premiere a new Winery Dogs song from the new album Hot Streak! Join me for music and talk that rocks live nationwide tonight. And remember next Monday Trunk Nation is live from L.A. for the first time ever! Guests TBA

Next appearances are back on the West Coast. I’ll be hosting Music For Heroes this Saturday at Heritage Park in San Jose with Tom Keifer, Slaughter, Adler, Vixen and more. Then I’ll be appearing for solo speaking shows in Ramona CA 10/2 and Huntington Beach 10/3. Details on the home page. Hope to see you in N and S CA soon!
