Greetings from LA. Been here since last week with my latest LA Invasion show from the Rainbow. Was a great one with Joe Satriani, Keith St John and Jack Russell. If you missed it now On Demand SiriusXM app. Also hosted some events at NAMM this past weekend. Was fun seeing so many friends and meeting so many fans. I’ll recap on air tomorrow. I’ll be live from SiriusXM LA all this coming week usual time of 2-4P ET on 106 Volume talking rock with you (replay 10-Mid ET). Have some cool guests lined up as well. Keep an eye on Twitter for more. This Friday I’ll be attending the big Aerosmith Music Cares tribute here! Also this Sunday I am in Thornburg VA (info on home page appearances). Next LA Invasion is 2/25 FYI.
My new podcast this Thursday will feature a tribute to Neil Peart.
Lot going on so keep an eye on my Twitter and IG for updates !
Shocking sad tragic news today with the announcement that Neil Peart has passed away. Like most I have been a lifelong Rush fan and been lucky throughout my career to do many interviews with the guys. But only once with Neil and it was for a TV shoot for VH1 Classic back in 2006. It’s amazing because over the years so many have asked me about that interview because Neil did so few for TV one on one. It’s something I’ve always felt so lucky and grateful to have done and it couldn’t have been a better day. He was such a grounded, nice, wonderful guy above and beyond the incredibly brilliant drummer and writer he also was. Like many I held out hope maybe one day we would hear him play again having no idea what he was battling. Neil, and the entire Rush family and management have endured some really sad losses over the decades, made even sadder by the fact that they are all such nice people. My recent all Rush holiday special is re airing tonight on Q104.3 NYC and streaming on the free IHeartRadio app 11P-2A ET. My next live show on SiriusXM Volume 106 on Monday 2-4P ET will be dedicated to talking about Neil with some guests calling in. Condolences to his family, friends, many fans, Geddy & Alex, and the entire Rush office. RIP Neil Peart. We will never see the likes of him again.
The next TrunkNation LA Invasion and the first of 2020 is set for next Thursday Jan 16th! As usual it will be live on SiriusXM 106 Volume from the patio at the Rainbow in LA 7-9P Pacific. It will then replay Friday 2-4 and 10-Mid ET on 106 and also be on the SiriusXM app. My guests will include Joe Satriani and more TBA and as usual admission to attend if in LA is free! No ticket or guest list needed, just come by if in town. Hope to see everyone for the first Invasion show of 2020.
