Posted by Eddie Category: TRUNK REPORT

It’s been a long cold Winter here in the NJ area, so I am thrilled to be heading to Florida tomorrow for a few days. I’ll be getting into Tampa tomorrow night (where I don’t think I have ever spent time), driving to Largo, and then hosting Jake E Lee at the Cultural Center this Friday night. I will be doing a meet & greet and book signing in the lobby prior to the show, starting around 6:30. Both my first and new book will be available for purchase as well. Hope to see you guys if in this part of FL.

Then Saturday it’s a drive to Miami to board the Monsters Of Rock Cruise! I have had the honor of hosting this every year and it is amazing how many great fans I get to hang out with and how many great bands everyone gets to see. This is a total blast and floating party for 3 full days. I do my best to see as much as I can but so much going on it’s hard to take it all in. I also need to get around the ship to various stages which can be a feat in itself, but all fun for sure. If you are on board look forward to seeing you. I will once again be doing a Q&A and book signing. Check your daily schedules to find out when and where. I will also have both of my books available for purchase at the signing on board. Also the band merch stands on the ship will have some TrunkNation shirts and more available the entire cruise.

Thanks for the support and hope to see you all. This weekend kicks off a super busy run of travel so keep an eye on this sites home page and my Twitter and FB for news and updates. Radio shows recorded this weekend since I am away. Please note I will have no online access while on the cruise so updates on this blog and uploading of comments may be more delayed than usual.

And don’t forget ALL NEW TMS this Saturday and next!


  1. Eddie, I’m sure you’re beyond tired of reading KISS related posts but I feel like I could express my point here. I agree with most fans on this site. Gene and Paul are only answering on twitter to bonehead questions that basically rip on KISS. Today, Gene went on for hours arguing with a guy that kept asking if Gene ever “sat back at the end of the work day to have a nice cold beer.” And that was basically the same question the guy asked a thousand times and Gene answered a thousand times. I’ve asked Gene and Paul many times both very respectful and good questions and never got an answer back from either one. Do you have a guess as to why they might only be answering questions that disrespect them? P.S. Really dug the last episode with Pete. Thanks for all the hard work you put in in the hard rock and heavy metal community. We really appreciate it. Rock on

  2. Looking forward to meeting you and reading your book.
    The weather here in Saint Petersburg Florida was awesome yesterday, unsure what’s up with today. Lol Been a heavy metal music lover my whole life, and will be reading my new book after the concert. Jake E Lee phenominal guitarist !

  3. Ed ! Welcome to my neck of the woods. Might be worth your time to check out some of the bars, eateries in downtown St Pete.
    Jannus Landing is one of the best outdoor venues there is. Or, if you’re nuts enough – go hit Ybor city.
    Either way, welcome to the Bay Area my man – home of Robin Zander!
