9/27: METALLICA IS BACK, MAJOR RADIO NEWS THIS THURSDAY, MORE
Had a busy day in NYC yesterday. Spent some time with the guys in Metallica who were in to appear on Howard Stern and various other SiriusXM shows. It was good to see them all. Spent a good amount of time talking UFO with Kirk (he’s a fellow super fan!) and interviewed Lars. You’ll hear when and where to catch this interview very soon. Metallica’s new stuff sounds amazing. It’s so great to see all of the Big 4 bands still making such great metal 30 plus years on! And when it comes to Metallica it has always been so cool to me that as huge as they are they never forgot the people that were there when they started, and are still fans above and beyond anything. They were nice enough to invite me to their private show in NYC tonight at Webster Hall. Look forward to it! More on the Metallica front coming soon.
I’ve been teasing you all a bit about a major announcement on the radio side of things for me. That will come out via a press release this Thursday! Can’t wait to share this news!
The series I am hosting on AXS TV “Reel To Real” debuts the doc on Jason Becker called Not Dead Yet tonight 9P ET. This is a great moving film on Jason’s story. Do not miss it if you get AXS.
Monsters Of Rock Cruise West is near! We set sail this Saturday from LA. I’ll be flying out Thursday for pre cruise parties. Should be a blast! Hope to see you all on board if sailing on this one.
Had a great visit on my radio show last night with Alex Skolnick. He’s doing everything from metal to jazz and it’s always fun to talk with him about his musical adventures.
Coming this week to my podcast Jeff Pilson talks Foreigner and Dokken reunion. Free as usual on Itunes and www.PodcastOne.com
Metallica has always been great to the fans (especially us bay area peeps) looking forward to the new album. Great job hosting reel to real last night. That was an incredibly moving movie on Jason Becker, been thinking about it during my work day. I think the part that got me the most was when he was diagnosed and he didn’t quite get the severity of what he had and almost seemed as though he thought he could beat this thing that was uncurable. God bless him for the courage he has. It really makes you think how life can take a turn at any moment and the older you get the more you see it happen.
