    Default Eddie Trunk on VH/Mike...

    So I went to the Battle of the Tribute Bands at BB King's in NYC Saturday, mostly to see Beatallica (unreal!), and it was hosted by Eddie Trunk (Q104.3/VH1 Classic/XM). I talked to him for a few minutes at the bar and we got on the subject of VH (Unchained was also on the bill). He said - from what he's heard, the fact that Ed's working on getting his head straight and that Wolfie has already said he doesn't want to do the tour - he thinks Mike will be on the tour.

    Keep in mind this is just his opinon, although he is somewhat connected to the industry. Also, he had just been thrown from the mechanical bull minutes before we spoke.

    Just wanted to pass this on. Don't shoot the messenger, etc...

    Like you said, it's just his opinion... but just because he's "connected" to some bands that he helped promote 20 years ago, he in no way has any clue about VH.

    I give Eddie T. credit for being very approachable in person and on the net, but unless he has a direct connection to a band/artist (like White Lion, Anthrax, Overkill, Ronnie Dio, Bret Michaels, etc.), and he's never mentioned one to VH, he makes his opinion sound like fact sometimes.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Trunk, but all I'm saying is take what he says with a grain of salt when it comes to rumors.

    Eddie Trunk is the man and does a great job. I would love for him to be right about this, but there is that problem of Mike being signed on for the Sammy tour. I doubt Mike could/would just pull out of that tour at the last minute, even if it is for VH.

    That's exactly the spirit in which this post was intended. I just felt like he may have heard some things that the fans hadn't and thought it was worth mentioning. Especially, since there's no official word from the band - as usual. Thanks.

    Last Friday I spent some hours with Alex Skolnick (pictures on myspace: click here) and we talked about VH and the current status.

    Alex: "you know VH is goin to tour with Dave?"
    Batch::"Yeah, maybe, they are having a lot of troubles from what I know"
    Alex::"they always had a lot of troubles -laugh- but this time they'll do it right"

    EVH was an inspiration for Alex and he seemed really happy about the forthcoming tour.

    If ET is right (which I believe he is) I think Sammy would give his blessing, so to speak, and would want Mike to do a VH tour.

    Sammy did tell the press at the post HOF ceremony that IF VH should go out and do it the right way for the fans, Mike should be part of it!

    Much to the same effect they toured in 2004. So I don't believe Sammy would have a problem with Mike leaving that tour and Mike probably has an "out" option in a contract, who knows. I'm sure Mike was aware that Eddie would continue with a tour after rehab, but maybe not this soon and had already signed on with Sam.

    Now, would Sam retract what he originally said at the HOF ceremony should Wolfie decide he doesn't want to do the tour and EVH comes calling, or already has?

    I think Mike will be part of it!

    This is the gist of the conversation that my friends and I had with Eddie (Trunk - don't want to confuse anyone). How could the other members of the classic lineup, with a sober Ed, reunite without Mike??? Again, just his speculation, although it may hold a little more weight since he is connected to the industry; however peripheral it may be.

    If Mike is asked to do the tour, He should tell them to fuck off.

    He should have done that back in 2004 when they demoted him to a salaried employee for the Hagar reunion.

    Not really touring, just selling hot sauce and tequila mixed in with a little jamming.
