9/22: EXPERIENCE HENDRIX RECAP, LIVE ON SIRIUSXM TONIGHT
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Thankfully my Giants won and saved their season yesterday! Had a great time in FL on Friday at The Seminole Hard Rock hosting Experience Hendrix. Never saw the Experience tour before and it is really very cool and well done with an amazing array of revolving guitar players all playing Hendrix tunes. Hung with Zakk Wylde for a couple days and had some laughs as always. Hanging with Zakk now is so different than during his drinking days but equally fun. He just came out and went OFF on several Hendrix classics blowing away the crowd. Was also cool to see Eric Gales, another great player who I actually used to work with in his early days on the management side. Hadn’t seen Eric since he was around 16 when he was first signed. He and Zakk jamming together was awesome! Was also cool to see the legend Buddy Guy. I last interviewed him during my first tour of duty at VH1C in 2006. Buddy is 78 and still rocking on the road, amazing! Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd also sounded amazing from the artists I caught. Hung some with Tony Franklin who was also part of the tour and plays in the KWS band. Mike Piazza went to the show with me (Mike lives in S FL) and of course we talked Blue Murder with Tony! He did tell me he does play on several tracks on John Sykes’ long awaited new album, but it is not a BM album. Thanks to all the great fans I met and all the killer musicians as well. I’ll be back at Seminole Hard Rock to host Judas Priest & Steel Panther 10/30 with a signing/meet & greet after the show in the cafe. Photos and more from this past weekend on my FB and Twitter pages.
Live on SiriusXM 39 TRUNKNation 6-10P ET tonight for music and talk that rocks!
