3/6: THURSDAY UPDATE; HOF, MARS, TATE, KISS, MORE

Posted by Eddie Category: TRUNK REPORT

Hope everyone is having a great Thursday so far. Some interesting comments about my last blog on remasters. Cool to see everyone’s opinions. Yes there are plenty of good ones that artists were not involved in. It’s all subjective and depends what your ears like. I forgot to mention UFO’s catalog which is awesome. Especially Strangers In The Night which has added tracks and is back in the actual sequence in the reissue. Good reading in comments others that people like.

 

Just amazing the amount of Kiss related comments here since the HOF news broke on my show almost two weeks ago. We are a little over a month out now so I suspect no shortage of new developments coming as we get closer. Really funny seeing all the guesses on who does the induction. I can tell you of all the guesses in comments not one person has been right so far! It is someone not openly associated with Kiss that much and someone the HOF loves. I can also tell you this person did very much campaign to get them in the HOF as well. I’ll post who it is when I can, then watch the comments come in I’m sure.

 

Live Q104.3 show tomorrow with Geoff Tate calling in.

 

Audio from my recent 2 hour in depth interview with Mick Mars is now making the rounds online and on YouTube. Appreciate all the positive comments about this interview. You don’t hear much from Mick and it was cool to get into real detail with him about his life and Motley. He will be on TMS this Saturday.

  1. I’m guessing Alice Cooper will induct “KISS” or maybe Trent Reznor or Marilyn Manson ? I’m guessing Paul & Gene would like it to be Roger Daltry & Pete Townsend or better yet Paul McCartney (& Ringo Starr) (being that they are the only 2 survivng members from “The Beatles”) …as they have compared themselves to Lennon & McCartney as song writer’s & musician’s in the past (?) (influence’s …’yes’)
    I’m sure Ace would be honoured if it were Jimmy Page (one of his early influences) Jimmy Page & Ace are my all time favorate guitarist’s btw ! Unlike G & P , I’m sure Ace & Peter are truly honoured to be accepted into the ‘R&R HOF’ reguardless of how many years it took after being eligable …Musically speaking I believe both Ace & Peter had better resume’s …experince,etc compared to Gene or Paul prior to “KISS” being formed and their heart’s went into there playing too !! Peter’s drumming (Jazzy’rock ty Mr.Krupa!) and ‘Ace’ …100% ‘signiture sound’ very disinguishable & unique in style !! Unfortunatley downplayed by G&P for 30+yrs. Anyways I’ve been a fan for 37yrs, since I was 10yrs old & hope the “1” and only “KISS” (G,P,A&P) play together ..I dont care if Pauls voice isn’t 100%. or Peter’s drumming ,etc its 3-4 songs ! .Nobody could possibly expect after 40yrs any rockstar is going to sound like they’re in their prime …stand tall Paul , if you are true to what you’ve said in the past then you wouldn’t care what they/the critics say as its the Fans who count & matter, warts & all , its about the original 4 , I believe you dont really want to perform cuz of your voice & also as payback to Ace & Peter for things they said, did & didn’t do …you lack acceptance Paul & it’s true Money cannot buy you happiness Oh and maybe yur voice issue is a sign …? Life is to short but when yur Ego is huge & yur wallet is FAT its easier to be a prick but I also know at the end of the day it ends up being a lonely place when you harbour resentments but as long as you focus on the fingers pointing away from yourself you’ll never find true happiness and you will continue to do what you & Gene do for all the wrong reasons and ‘we’ the ‘fans’ will pay for it(or not?) and from what I’ve wittnessed… the ‘Music’ suffers !! Isn’t that what was once important ? Oh ya ..you’s got rich & the rest is $KISSTORY$ I’ll cherish all my KISS memories only wished it would end like it started …Oh well !! …KarL S. from Vancouver Island
