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!

    Sad that Paul and Gene are so out of touch with the average hard rock/metal fan. Love your show as you can laugh at yourselves and have fun doing what you love….I’m sure most of us wish we could make a living do what we love. Love the show…been watching since day one. Love to see Tesla on again soon.

    I love the show and I love metal. Thank you for all you do. That being said, I wish the whining about Kiss would just stop. I have no knowledge of the inner workings of whatever relationship or non-relationship you have with the guys in Kiss, but it always sounds like whining. Just a little thin-skinned at times is the attitude. Maybe they have wronged you in some way that only you know, but it just comes off as petty when you fire back like this. Maybe that is what it needs to be on your end and maybe the guys in Kiss are just dickheads, but the back and forth is just tiresome. I hope that one day it just stops. Thanks for the chance to post.

      Will never understand how covering and debating a major story for my audience is considered “whining”…

    • Rich on

      Show me a response from Eddie that defines being “petty” or “firing back”. Let’s see some examples. We’ll be waiting…

    I guess he’s forgotten that we, the fans are the ones who got him where he is today. That’s really sad. Hope he realizes it can be taken away just as quick as he got it. I’ve lost all respect for him. Oh, and by the way….TMS ROCKS!! I want to be just like you when I eventually grow up. Im a music trivia nut, always have and always will. I love and have both of your books and Im hoping that you write another. Have fun on the cruise. Im gonna go one day!
