Was sad to hear of the passing of record producer Andy Johns. I first heard the news late last night via a text from former LA Guns guitarist Stacy Blades. Andy had produced the last few LA Guns albums and was working with Stacy on his next band at the time of his death. I did not know Andy personally but was a huge fan of his work. His early days of engineering were on all time classic albums by Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, and The Rolling Stones. Perhaps some of his best known 80’s work was with Cinderella (That’s him in the “Somebody Save Me” video behind the board). Andy also produced Van Halen’s F U C K album and more recently the debut from Chickenfoot. He was known for great drum sounds and really rich punchy sounding albums and I loved his work. I did not know Andy personally. Years ago in the 80’s he was working on something with House Of Lords and I somehow ended up at the studio and did a gang vocal on the album. Outside of a that very brief meeting I never knew him, but his track record speaks for itself. By many accounts Andy worked with rock stars and also partied like one! A true legend of the business gone at just 62. RIP Andy and thanks for the great sounding rock. More on this tonight on SiriusXM Eddie Trunk LIVE show starting 6P ET on channel 39.

Just a quick update to let you guys know signed personalized copies of my debut book are still available directly from me. Just click on the banner on the home page for all the order details. I’ll write whatever you want and send it out ASAP. If you don’t want signed copies you can buy Eddie Trunk’s Essential Hard Rock & Heavy Metal anywhere books are sold as a physical book or as a digital version via itunes, etc. I am just about done with Volume 2 of the book which will come out in Sept and have the same format (playlists, photos, stories, etc) and feature all bands not in volume 1. Once we get closer to that release I’ll be hitting the road for signings and special events around that. My first book has done really well and I can’t thank you all enough for the support that has made this coming sequel possible. Psyched for it to come out and I’ll let you know more details and reveal the wide variety of bands included very soon.

Thanks to David Coverdale for the surprise call in this past Friday on the FM show. DC talked about the upcoming live Whitesnake touring and DVDs/CDs.

Always good to have him on. Also check out Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich’s band Burning Rain who are about to release new music and just issued a new video.

Busy time playing catch up from being away the last week. Was great to be live on the last two radio shows. Rex Brown called in to the Q104 show last Friday to discuss his new book.

About a month away from filming the new TMS episodes in LA. The ticket info should be released any day. I will post here and on my Twitter. The episodes are about 50% booked. Once all slots filled I will announce the new seasons guests. Guests are booked based on if they are available when we shoot (many on tour) and if they want to do the show. We ask! If there is a major act you want on TELL THEM, all we can do is ask. Let them hear from YOU the fans! We have new features coming and the guests will be a mix of new and classic artists and first time and returning guests. The shows will start to air early June on VH1 Classic. A special hello and thanks to TMS viewers outside the USA. I know season 9 just started in S America and other markets. I am hoping to find a way to come and visit some of these other countries that have rabid TMS fans soon.


For those asking I will once again be special guest host at M3 this year. I’ll be heading to Maryland direct from LA right after we tape the new TMS shows. Hope to see you all out there again. Free tix being given away on my radio shows.


Also will once again be hosting this years Rocklahoma. Huge lineup and this should be one of the biggest years yet. Honored to have hosted this great event every year and look forward to seeing you in Pryor OK Memorial Weekend.
