Way over 100 shows in 2012- a personal record!
This was the Eddie Trunk birthday episode. Chickenfoot’s Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony were the guests on the show. Actually, Sammy was billed as “guest host”, so he served dual functions, I guess. Needless to say, these guys are pretty hilarious and definitely know how to party! The highlight of the taping was John 5’s guitar playing. He completely lit it up from start to finish. He’d quote Van Halen guitar parts during the break and his playing as guest guitarist was absolutely phenomenal. Everybody was totally cool and it made for an excellent taping…

After the taping, there were many people that went to the Rainbow for dinner. Upon arrival, lots of fans from the audience were in attendance as well. Then, Billy Sheehan appeared, soon to be followed by Richie Kotzen and Mike Portnoy (who were in the midst of taping their new super group trio album. Eddie Trunk then showed up, as did Don Jameson. They were also joined by Chris Broderick, Brian Slagel and Mike Piazza. Others showed up as well later on to celebrate Eddie’s b-day..
