Happy Trails - A Tribute To Edward Van Halen

ELast week, the world lost one of the best, most innovative guitar players in history… the guy who created a movement, became part of the pop culture lexicon, and inspired (and continues to) generations of guitar players. The great Eddie Van Halen passed away October 6th at the age of 65 from cancer. So join Chris, and four of his guitar-playing friends who were all greatly inspired and influenced by Eddie – Trixter’s Steve Brown, who had a personal relationship with EVH; Steel Panther’s Satchel, an EVH disciple; Fozzy’s Billy Grey who picked up the guitar after hearing Eddie play; and Fozzy’s Rich Ward, who took from Eddie’s rhythm playing style. Together, they pay tribute – honoring Edward Van Halen’s playing prowess, his solos, his songwriting, his technical contributions to the guitar, and as you’ll hear, his incredibly friendly, warm human spirit – the inviting smile and humility that endured even when he wasn’t at his best. You’ll also hear EVH stories and memories...

30 Years of After The Rain with Gunnar & Matthew Nelson

So why did Chris Jericho have long, blonde hair when he first started wrestling? Because of Gunnar and Matthew Nelson! And why did the Nelson twins have long, blonde hair? Because Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora told them they should! Nelson and Chris Jericho have more in common than just blonde hair though – they’re both also celebrating 30-year anniversaries this month – Jericho’s 30th in wrestling, and Nelson’s 30th anniversary of the release of their major label debut, “After The Rain.” Nelson tells the tale of making that album while flat broke, how they were able to become one of the biggest bands in the world with virtually no support and no money, and why after having such a tremendously successful first album, they almost didn’t get to release a second! They remember headlining tours because no bands wanted to take them on the road, what one guest VJ spot on MTV did for their career, being sidelined at Geffen Records in favor of grunge, what happened the night they met Cindy Crawford, and how COVID forced them to postpone their 30th Anniversary celebration plans.
