Eddie Trunk Interview( One From The Archives Series)

I  have been spending some time in my archives and I came across this gem. Eddie Trunk is one of metal stalwart torch bearers. His That Metal Show is a staple around the globe for metal fans.I had a chance to interview Eddie early in my pursuit of this passion. This was originally published on The Ripple Effect. Enjoy...             Eddie Trunk   essential Hard Rock and Heavy Metal volume 2 Abrams image publishing 9/24/2013       Eddie Trunk is a stalwart proponent of the metal genre.

Interview With Ross The Boss

Interview With Ross The Boss   When you get a chance to speak with a musician who was directly responsible for writing some of metals greatest anthems and flag bearing songs, you get nervous.

When it comes to us though, I’d say that our influences vary, from the late Deep Purple years (Come Taste The Band must be my favourite Deep Purple album), to Whitesnake, Michael Schenker and of course the 80s NWOBHM and Hard Rock scene in general. I’m pro
