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

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.

Comments

  1. HEY EDDIE ITS TOM MORELLO!!

  2. is it chris jehrico or dale torborg?. for ppl that don’t know who torborg is, he is the son of major league player and manager jeff torborg and was even the conditioning coach of the marlins when his father was the mgr. but mainly torborg was a wrestler who wrestled under his real name, and also as the kiss demon is wcw.

  3. Eddie said it’s someone the HOF loves. My guess is Bruce Springsteen. He’s from the area too. I think the Hall is glad Kiss isn’t performing. Its like they said here we put Kiss in to shut them up but lets bust the fans balls by making controversy to try and spoil the moment. Unbelievable the continued disrespect of our music. It really is time for a new Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Hall of Fame.

  4. My guess- Lenny Kravitz
    He once said Kiss was a big inspiration for him to get into music

  5. Paul Shaefer

  6. Is it Dr. Jesse Hilsen?

  7. Hey Eddie
    Instead of asking Geoff
    How are the court negotiations going:
    1 )Can you just ask Geoff if he going for the name or went for a buyout instead ?
    2) If he is going to be able to advertise his shows as ‘ The Voice of Queensryche” ( because thats huge ! )
    3) Does he wish he would have let the other guys contribute more to the sound over the years ? ( He probably will deny this)
    4) Has he talked to DeGarmo , and if so, is he willing to write music with Geoff again ? ( I know he wont tour)

    Thanks
    .

    • The DeGarmo stuff has been beaten into the ground with both versions of the band. The guy is just not involved any more. I asked it last time to Rockenfield. But if something to talk about I will..

  8. Just to rub it into the HOF’s noses even further, it would be awesome to see someone of the McCartney/Springsteen/Bono class, that is, someone the HOF holds in such high regard, that would surprise them that this inducter would “stoop” to induct Kiss. Is Cyndi Lauper in the HOF? She started out at Coventry as well.

  9. My guess, the guy who’s been a part or almost every induction ceremony thus far, a member himself, but in no way related to the Kiss genre of rock……….John Fogarty.

    Ed? Am I right?

  10. ELTON JOHN.

  11. The Hall love Kid Rock

  12. Mark Temple says:

    Is it Craig Gass? I mean, who better to induct Gene than the best Gene impersonator? I’m sure pseudo-Al Pacino will make an appearance as well as pseudo-Tracy Morgan and pseudo-Christopher Walken too…because, well, that’s just what Craig does.

  13. Ed…and info on the rumored Ratt break up?

  14. Not Madonna?!

  15. Ozzy

  16. Lenny Kravitz- he has said in the past that Kiss was a big inspiration for him to get into the music business.

  17. Charlie says:

    I’m guessing the perennial HOF performer and orchestrator………John Fogarty.

    Am I right, Eddie?

    BTW excellent point on the latest TMS….Where’s FOREIGNER in the HOF? Oh wait, probably isn’t enough room with Leonard Cohen and F’n Madonna in there! My mistake!

  18. Doc Mcgee

  19. William W. Rowley new board of trustee member affiliated with mercury records who rereleased Destroyer (Ressurected) in 2012

  20. KISS HOF presenter – Eddie Trunk!!!

    • Uh, no, but thanks for the thought..

      • I still think, if all four do go to the ceremony, they will get up and be part of an all- star band. I think Dave Grohl will be playing and before he is done, he will call the guys up on stage and at least sing (not play instruments) Rock and Roll All Nite. Gene and Paul will be put on the spot as if they don’t go up there they will get crucified in the press and by fans, especially if Ace and Perer go up. Just a thought as I can see Dave Grohl doing something like this because he is a real historian of music and he understands the significance of KISS in rock history.

  21. Little Steven…right?

  22. Is it Lena Headey?

  23. SLASH SLASH SLASH SLASH SLASH SLASH SLASH SLASH SLASH SLASH

    And Ace is traveling with equipment.

  24. I’m right huh? Little Steven.

  25. Les Binks is better than Jar Jar Binks says:

    I think it’s Devo or Joan Jett.

  26. Lady Gaga?

  27. Eddie,
    As for the KISS HOF presenter, my guess is… Bob Dylan.

  28. Could you guys pick more generic songs for your Motley Top 5. Leaving Bastard and Knock em Dead Kid off any of your lists is just horrendous.

  29. RRHOF guess for KISS’ induction: Paul McCartney

    Sorry if already a guess!

  30. I’ll guess at either Bono or fellow New Yorker Billy Joel for the induction.

  31. Some of the ideas that I posted here last week actually came from this blog that I read by a writer that I follow on Facebook. He’s a big fan of all eras of KISS. Here’s the blog:
    http://musiconthemenu.blogspot.com/2014/03/kiss-and-rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame-who.html
    I think it will be the guy from Rage. Not a fan of their music, but I’ve seen him on your show, and he gets it.

  32. ginger lynn

  33. Allen C. says:

    My guess…Alice Cooper!

  34. Paul Schaeffer?

  35. OK Eddie. One more guess, then I’m ‘tapping out’ like a beaten wrestler. Danny Goldberg?

  36. Diston N says:

    My guess is Stevie Wonder

  37. 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

  38. Eddie, sorry I got carried away with my Lonnnng message !!!!!!! LoL”” …was my 1st time posting …been a KISS fan for 37yrs and a fan of TMS for a few years and decided to finally join in …Thanks !! …Karl S.
