Well the R&R HOF induction is finally here, and for Kiss fans the moment we have all waited for is about 24 hours away from when I type this. Honestly I never thought I would see the day. I have literally screamed and yelled about this insane injustice (as did others) for the last 15 years. I agree with Paul Stanley’s comments that the HOF really doesn’t want Kiss there, but it was becoming so absurd with so much fan pressure they had to cave. So this is a victory for us the fans! After all the insane BS that has gone on the last couple months the bottom line is the founding members of this iconic band will finally get their due tomorrow night in Brooklyn. I will be there with Ace and Peter and I appreciate them having me as part of their group. I’ll do my best to update you via Twitter @EddieTrunk with info and photos when I can. Sucks there won’t be a performance but at least as fans we can finally see justice done for one of this institutions biggest snubs!


Headed to Mexico with Don and Jim this weekend. I fly to Mexico City early Friday AM. We will have a live show in Mexico City at Casino Life this Friday night. Then we are at McCarthy’s Pub in Puebla Mexico this Saturday night. The Puebla gig is a free show but you must have a ticket. Can’t wait to meet the great Mexican fans and thank them for their support of TMS! See you all soon and we will have some fun for sure. I will also have limited copies of both of my books available for purchase at both gigs.


This Friday’s Q104 radio show is a brand new special I’m calling “family tree”. Connecting two or more songs to related artists. Hope you like it. Debuts 11P ET on Q104.3 NYC or with the free stream via uHeartradio app.

I will be live this Monday on SiriusXM 6-10P ET for TrunkNation on channel 39. Guests will be Joe Elliot of Def Leppard and Chris Von Rohr of Krokus.


More when I can next get online and via Twitter and FB. Many more appearances TBA so please keep an eye on the home page listings. Also for those in the NYC area keep an eye on the concert calendar and win tickets for those shows on my radio show.

    Keep up the good work eddie! Good luck in Mexico! Also great season of tms btw. When my cable plan was being figured out vh1 Classic HAD to stay!

  • Chandler on

    Is the RRHOF ceremony broadcast anywhere? If not, how would one get to see the entire event?

    • Cali on

      No, it will only be simulcast at the Hall in Cleveland- that is absolutely it.

      Disappointing. We can catch it on HBO end of May.

      Hopefully someone will throw it up on youtube shortly.

    hey eddie, I have a non-kiss question, any chance of getting pat benatar & neil geraldo on TMS? in my opinion pat benatar was, is & always will be the best, greatest female rock singer of all time! ever! and crimes of passion is one of my favorite albums of all time. it was one of my favorite episodes of TMS when ann & nancy wilson were on the show, and I know it’s ultimately up to VH1C, but I’m sure there’s a lot of other people out there that would love to see pat & neil on TMS! I know of course their not metal or maybe not even “hard” rock, but pat benatar’s early stuff, especially her first 3 albums really rocked!

      Good call!!!!

    • SS on

      Pat Benatar is not metal.

    • doug r. on

      no shit, who asked you?

    • Kim on

      The show is called That Metal Show and you don’t need to waste Eddie’s time with requests for artists outside the genre.

    • doug r. on

      the only person wasted anybody’s time here is you kim or whoever, first of all mind your own business, second of all everybody knows what the name of the show is, but like eddie himself always says, “ALL THINGS HARD ROCK AND HEAVY METAL”, get it? ALL THINGS! heart, who I love, was on the show & so were a lot of others who aren’t “heavy” metal or even what you would call “hard” rock, so you don’t need to waste anybody else’s time with your meaningless opinions or comments!

    • KI on

      Is Pat Benatar Metal?

    • doug r. on

      is heart metal? or styx? paul rodgers? mick jones??

    • Eddie on

      No, they are rock bands, like we say at the start of EVERY episode the show is about rock and metal. Not to mention they are bands that many metal bands love. Vinnie Paul was geeked beyond belief to be on with Styx!

    Have a good time at the HOF and a safe trip to Mexico. Saw you on MOR cruise, we had a great time. Probably about 20 bands would have been sufficient rather than 40. Underrated performer on the cruise was John Corabi and his band…they kicked ass. Was able to talk to him a number of times…what a nice guy who really appreciates his fans. Also, sat with some of the Charm City Devils in the sports bar on the boat killing some time…friendly and down to earth people. Another underrated gem was the Moby Dicks…what a great Led Zeppelin tribute band. Those guys absolutely killed it in the Black and White Lounge, and the real treat there was getting to see Simon Wright come up on stage and drum with them. As an AC/DC fan, I’m sure you know what this meant to me!

    All in all Eddie, the Monsters Cruise was great. We’ll see about going next year.

    This week to celebrate the milestone of my all time favorite band finally entering the HOF I have been having my very own KISS HOF induction events. I have been playing the albums in order from KISS to CREATURES. And, in lieu of no Kiss live performance from all original band members at the ceremony, I am going to watch the opening night of the Reunion Tour at Tiger Stadium on DVD….a time when all four members were reminded just how happy they were to be back together again.

    • doug r. on

      I know exactly how you feel michael, I too have pretty much been doing the same thing all week! I want to remember kiss in a good/happy way with them all getting along, (for the most part). I don’t want to hear them bad-mouthing each other anymore at all! EVEN IF EVERYTHING THEY ALL SAID ABOUT EACH OTHER IS TRUE, WHAT MAKES THEM THINK THE FANS WANT TO KNOW ABOUT IT? when I listen to kiss, I only want to know/hear about the good stuff, and I’m sure there was a lot of that too, that’s all I’m interested in, the good stuff, THE MUSIC!

    • Mike B on

      AMEN to that. I miss the mystery of KISS–not knowing every little detail of their lives. That was a big part of KISS in the 70’s when you couldn’t even see their faces. Now we know too much it seems. Like you said, the music is the most important, and as long as they keep putting out good music…
      Now I know why Second Coming has never been released on DVD–they clearly want fans to stop asking about Peter and Ace.
