9/29: GREETINGS FROM L.A., AC/DC, RADIO, LITA FORD, MORE
Greetings from Los Angeles. My trip West started last Saturday hosting the charity show Music For Heroes in San Jose. Thanks to the event for having me and to all the bands and fans I hung with. Go to www.musicforheroes.org to donate and for more info.
Got to LA Sunday. Had a HUGE SiriusXM live show from here yesterday that many seemed to really love. Basically a 4 hour roundtable talking music with a slew of rock artists including Don Dokken, Gilby Clarke, Bobby Blotzer, John 5, George Lynch, Steve Vai, Steven Adler, Lonnie Paul, Chad Stewart, Ace Von Johnson, and more that I apoloize forgetting (don’t have the list in front of me). Appreciate everyone coming and it was cool to do the show from LA. Hope to again soon. Lots of news was made in this show already making the rounds. Audio will be on the SiriusXM app On Demand now or soon.
Just did my first ever podcast from the Podcast One studio here in LA. Lita Ford came by and we talked for over an hour about her career. Don’t miss this exclusive posting this Thursday as my free podcast on Itunes or www.podcastone.com . I also review AC/DC and recap the radio show from Monday in the podcast.
Speaking of AC/DC saw them last night at Dodger Stadium. Packed house on a Monday night with no name support. Are there any rock bands bigger? It was the final show of the stadium run here in the US but I can tell you the band will be back in arenas this Winter starting Feb on the W coast and I hear ending in NYC at MSG. Should all be announced soon. I was glad I caught this show a second time. Massive production and I had the chance to watch from the sound board (Thanks Cosmo and Pete Merluzzi!), the besr place to see and hear a show! Also met Stevie Young, who like all the guys in the band is a laid back nice unassuming guy. So cool to see the biggest rock band in the world not be like rock stars off stage!
Don’t forget if in So CA come see me this Friday at Ramona Main Stage and this Saturday in Huntington Beach at Fuzion. Q&A, live music, Stump The Trunk and more! All info on the home page. Follow on Twitter for more
