2/3: TRUNKNATION, HOUSTON SATURDAY, KISS, NUGENT, MORE

Sorry didn’t make it in for a show tonight on SiriusXM. Still fighting a stomach bug and we were hammered by a bad snow storm here in the NJ/NY area today. No way I could get in if I wanted to and I have no set up in my house from the company. I will be back live next Monday for TrunkNation. More details when we get closer.

Shooting TMS with Ted Nugent tomorrow. First time having him on the show and yes, it’s TMS, so the focus will be music! Had Ted on my radio show recently and was refreshing to talk music with him there as well. Also in the show will be Biff from Saxon via Skype. Gary Hoey plays guitar. It will premiere this Saturday.

I suspect you might be hearing something from some members of Kiss and the HOF soon.. General public tickets are going on sale soon and people still wondering what will or won’t happen, we shall see.. More here when news to share.

Thanks to all who are coming out to see me at Concert Pub North in Houston this Saturday. Should be a blast!

  1. A lot of people are battling assorted flu bugs here where I live in Central NY. It’s not easy getting acclimated to the crazy weather with a week hovering around 0 to 10 degrees and then a few days in the 30s and back down again.

    I enjoy Ted Nugent’s music. But there’s a definite change in his stuff from the 1970s into the 1980s. I have an extremely hard time believing he never took drugs. There are plenty of drug references in his songs going back to “Journey to the Center of Your Mind,” which Ted claims he was unaware of, up to a lot of the stuff from Double Live Gonzo. His music changed in the 1980s and it sounds like someone who gave up drugs. I don’t believe it was just the band members changing, even though that certainly was part of the equation.

    Frank Zappa was notoriously anti-drug, but in Howard Kaylan’s autobiography Howard sets the record straight, and unbeknownst to most Zappa fans, Frank did smoke pot on occasion and enjoyed a few drinks here and there. I think Frank was naturally pretty crazy (probably Aspergers) but anyways I don’t believe Ted when he says he never partook.

    • The stakes are high and so am I !……Teds music in the eighties was very ” corporate rock”. Totally different sound from the seventies stuff.

    Hey, Eddie. Sorry you’re under the weather. Sirius really should have made an announcement or something last night, as I was afraid that they had discontinued the show since there wasn’t a prerecorded show running in your place. I guess this is just more proof that they’re assholes and don’t care about you or your fans/their subscribers. Get well soon!

  3. Eddie…nice job getting Ted Nugent…can’t wait to see it. Also, thanks for getting Paul Rodgers a while back. He’s the best and is another who should be honored in some way (HOF or something more respectable) as his contribution to music is so underrated. Keep bringin’ it!!

  4. Hey Ed
    Ok … interesting tease on the KISS newsfront.
    Can you share anything more, or do we just have to wait it out?

    Diggin’ the new shows sir …..

    I’m looking forward to next week’s show with Ted Nugent. Always like hearing him speak. It will be nice hearing him talk music on the show, but I do agree with him on alot of other issues as well. The Mick Jones & Leslie West episode should be great as well.

  6. Beth Milligan says:

    Will be seeing you on Sat. Cannot wait to see your sunshiny face! Looking forward to Uncle Ted. Whether its music or life, he is always fearless expressing himself. Will be loads of fun.

  7. Eddie, Awesome job getting Ted Nugent on your show. Politics aside, the man is a phenomenal musician. Any chance of getting James Hetfield on this season? Just watched the Metallica movie and it’s a really great representation of their music. Also will your New York Show ever be released on dvd?
    Thanks and keep the metal flame burning!

  8. When are HOF ceremony tix on sale? The website originally said January.

  9. Eddie the Syracuse Area Music Awards…aka ” SAMMY’S” will be honoring Ronnie James Dio as part of the show. Just wanted to let you know. All of our best from The Cuse……

    Eddie, if by chance you read this…you have no idea how much your work means to me, my son and girlfriend. These are tough times for us. TMS, no matter who is on it, make our week. Music is our passion, these artists, our heroes. Thank you for all of you hard work, research and everything else. Also a very big thanks to Don and Jim, both great guys. Lastly, if you get a chance, please come to St. Louis! We appreciate you very much.

  11. Really enjoyed the Nugent show, thought he came off as very genuine.
    Gary Hoey shredded as well. Great show all around.
