Hope you guys are all doing well. Been busy on several fronts. We tape the two final episodes of the current TMS season this Tuesday in NYC. The guests will include The Winery Dogs, Vinnie Paul, Joe Satriani, Artie Lange and Jim Breuer. Plus on guitar in both shows will be Yngwie Malmsteen! And of course don’t forget this Saturday at 11P ET the latest new episode premiers featuring an hour with Peter Criss and Richard Christy on drums.

Peter talks about the first 6 Kiss studio albums and gives us his Rank of them, does our Put It On The Table segment, and of course talks about the RRHOF. For those expecting some sort of slam fest from him you will be disappointed. Obviously he wishes he would have been allowed to play one song with the original band, but now that nobody is playing he seems real happy to go up and accept the award and just thank the fans.

I’ll be in Largo this Friday hosting the Jake E Lee show. Meet & Greet and signing in the lobby before the show and books for sale. Then to MOR Cruise the next day. Honored to host MOR every year, can’t wait to see you if going!

Thanks to M Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold for rocking a TMS shirt on stage at festivals in Brazil and Australia! Saw the photos and tweeted one. I have a brand new That Eddie Trunk / Stump This T Shirt just released! Check it out in the merch store on this site (please note I can not sell TMS shirts in my store, but check out the other designs).


Live on Q104.3 NYC tomorrow 11P-2A ET. Listen via free stream at www.q1043.com or use the free iheartradio app. Live also Monday 6-10P ET on SiriusXM 39 TRUNKNation. Vinnie Paul and Joe Satriani will be in studio!


There has been SO much debate and discussion on Kiss on this site, and as usual all respectful opinions are welcome. As it stands now the original 4 will go up, each say a few words, and that’s it. Doubtful anything will change as it is now too late likely with production of the show and so many other acts involved. I also heard from everyone that Paul Stanley called TMS Wayne’s World on his Twitter. I myself have called it that jokingly in interviews. That was a super popular movie, and TMS a very popular show, so all good by me. But what Paul doesn’t realize is he is only insulting his fans trying to take a shot at a show THEY watch and most of them love. Maybe more Kiss shirts in our audience on a regular basis than anything else! So if we are Wayne’s World, or whatever else he thinks is a knock at the show, we are certainly proud to be good enough for most Kiss fans, not to mention legendary acts like Sabbath, AC/DC, Rush, Axl Rose, Motley Crue, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and many more who all appear and appreciate what we do. Paul can continue to be very comfortable going on channels like CNN where maybe 2% of the viewers care about rock and his band and he can get the usual cookie cutter liners from the anchor that just read the one sheet. Or maybe go on Howard Stern again, who just called Kiss the most irrelevant band ever on his radio show? We have plenty of artists that get and appreciate what we do, have a sense of humor, enjoy the debate, and acknowledge as fans we have opinions. Unfortunate that in Kiss land many times the decades of positives are never acknowledged and the few things you don’t like are blown up. But it’s all good by me. I thank all the amazing artists we have and will have on and most of all the fans around the world that support TMS and have made it VH1’s longest running show. Guess we are doing something right…Party on!

    As always Eddie…very well said! Thank you for just being a fan of music and allowing all of us to be just as passionate and speak our minds in this forum. And of course, thanks for keeping the music alive and turning us on to new great bands like the Winery Dogs and many others! Can’t wait to see the new TMS with Peter Criss, sounds like from what I have read he DEFINITELY took the high road…good for him!

    I myself like the casual “Wayne’s World” feel of the show. It feels like we are there sitting with you as you interview guests, listen to the great musicians playing live and cut up during the regular segments. I have been a huge Kiss fan since 1975 when I bought a cassette of Dressed to Kill. The Simmons/ Stanley sanctimonious act is wearing thin with me. I am glad they are finally in the HOF and only wish they would have made it a celebration and not the backbiting catfight it has become.

    You don’t need validation for TMS Eddie. You guys make us feel like you are literally in our living rooms holding court and it’s cool to see the relaxed, casual atmosphere you guys create. Glad it’s not a love fest, ass kissing of the artist on there too. I think my favorite part is when you see the guest watching the musical guest going into the break and the look on their face. We are all music fans. Even the guests. Good shit man. Party On Wayne!!!

    P.S. Aerosmith was on Wayne’s world on SNL. Never saw KISS there

    You go girl!

    Nothing but respect Ed, from the real hard rock and metal fans. Your news and insight are what radio used to be about and now that’s a talk show on TV. Most people, almost everyone gets it.
