Had a crazy weekend last week. If you heard my Volume show on Monday you know all the details. But in a nutshell here I hosted Sebastian Bach at the IDL in Tulsa last Friday. Great crowd and Bas was in great voice. it’s amazing how well he can sing the old Skid Row stuff. He set the bar so high as a kid on those albums and still really nails it. Shout out to Monte Pittman and One bad Son for great opening sets as well. Back in Tulsa this Friday for Tom Keifer at IDL. Great time hosting these shows, come on out!
Saturday I shot TrunkFest (for season 2 next year) and Sammy Hagar’s High Tide Beach Party. Had major stress getting there (which had nothing to do with the event), but once I made it had a blast. The fans were incredible. Sold out 14K strong on the beach in Huntington Beach CA. Amazing setting and weather. I didn’t see much of the sets because I was working. But I did get to intro Sammy which was a huge rush and I thank him for that. Interviewed Sammy, Michael Anthony, Kevin Cronin, Eddie Money, Vince Neil and more. Congrats to Sammy for a great debut festival. It’s amazing what this man can do at almost 71! His set included VH, Montrose, Chickenfoot (with Joe Satriani!), Zeppelin, solo stuff and more. Incredible! I’ll see Sammy 10/19 in El Dorado AR again! This was all recapped in detail on my radio show Monday. If you missed it grab it On Demand.
After some years of great improvement the R&R Hall has dropped the ball big time for rock fans this year for the nominees. Nice to see Leppard finally on the ballot and thanks to Joe Elliott for joining me today on my Volume show to discuss. But Priest is not even on the ballot again, no Maiden, no Benatar, it’s just ridiculous. Listen to my Volume show from today for more and Joe’s interview.
New podcast Thursday will be Steve Vai and Sebastian Bach from my last Volume show from the Rainbow in LA.
Massive response to my latest Trunk Top 20 on Rush! Hope you enjoyed the shows and thanks to everyone who called in with their own lists.
