Thanks to all who came to our live show in Philadelphia this past Saturday night at The Troc. Great time and appreciate all the love. Also thanks to Vinnie Moore for being a guest. This Saturday me, Don & Jim hit The Token Lounge in Westland MI by Detroit. Hope you can join us for comedy, Q&A, trivia and much more. I’ll have both of my books for sale as well as T shirts and more. Come hang!

Thanks to Judas Priest for coming by my radio show last night. Good to have Priest back in action with a new album coming in July. We hung out for 90 minutes, took calls, and played a new track. Audio already on Youtube (and my news section on this site) and also On Demand on the SiriusXM app. Thanks to Rob, Richie and Glenn for coming in. Tour coming in the Fall! More from the new album when I can play it.

I am aware that once again Paul Stanley was asked about coming on TMS by a fan at a Jewish center in SF. It was caught on video and once again he gave the Wayne’s World line. I love that his FANS are asking him. But the fans are the bosses right? Seems Paul is much more comfortable on shows like The Talk and others and that’s fine. He doesn’t need our show and we are fine as the longest running show in VH1 history without him. But as proven by the clip his FANS are asking him and he has no real excuse besides “Wayne’s world”? As I said when he called us that on Twitter, I don’t take offense to that. I have jokingly called the show that myself! We don’t take ourselves so serious. Paul is very sensitive as he says himself in his new book. So shows like The Talk and CNN where he will get questions a producer fed the host from a latest bio on exactly what he wants is a perfect fit for him. Many Kiss and rock fans don’t watch those shows but at least he is more comfortable there it seems and that’s fine. Our little “Wayne’s World” was good enough for Maiden, AC/DC, Sabbath, GnR, Paul Rodgers, Sammy Hagar, Metallica, Aerosmith Rush, and many many more. Even the last few bands Kiss worked with Motley and now Def Leppard have all been guests on TMS, embrace the show, and realize the importance of it. So all good by me. Wayne’s World was a hugely popular film, TMS is a popular show around the globe with rock and metal fans. Thanks to TMS fans everywhere for all the support and to Paul for at least watching. I mean you couldn’t reach a conclusion on something without having watched right? As has always been the case our doors remain wide open to discuss ALL aspects of an artists career. Party on!

    He’s equally as dismissive of the other “Kiss” books referring to them as “Fiction” although i’m sure he’s read all the parts about him.

    Respect! You always take the high road, Eddie. Paul is showing his true colors. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you! You have supported Kiss for 30 years on the air, were tirelessly campaigning to get the band into the HOF, and this is how he treats you?! Yeah,whatever. How many viewers of the Talk go to Kiss shows or buy Kiss cds? Keep doing what you do, Eddie. Your fans appreciate you.

    • Eric Smith on

      Hey Jeff, biting the hand that feeds you? Are you on crack? KISS didn’t make any extra money because of someone like Eddie Trunk……even Eddie would be the first to tell you that. KISS were already millionaires long before Eddie Trunk started giving them praise on the airwaves. I actually understand why Gene and Paul wont go on TMS……..it’s because they don’t NEED to. Call them marketing whores all you want and that is fine……..at least their marketing finesse means they don’t have to go on TMS and plug everything that they do…….pay attention to an episode of TMS sometime and you will see exactly what I am talking about. Most artists on the show are on at times when the most exposure will help their careers. Paul and Gene don’t need that kind of help. Anyways, I prefer to enjoy the music and I laugh at most of the stupid high school drama and most of the fans that buy into it and comment about it are usually just looking for attention.

      Kiss loves to $ell! TMS sells to rock fans like nothing else on TV. Stats support that. They would be all over TMS if Paul wasn’t so hyper sensitive as he states in his own book he is. Kiss is the only band I have run into in my 31 years in the business that behaves like this. You MUST like ALL they are selling NOW or everything else is wiped away and you are the enemy…

    • Gerry Blue on

      Who buys Kiss cd’s anymore for that matter, right? I like Paul and he seemd to be a nice person but I think Gene’s “assholeness” and “mr. hollywoodness” has rubbed on him, sad.

    • Jason Pinkney on

      I actually think Gene was and is more open minded about things than Paul. Gene at least seems gracious about things like having peter and ace at the hall induction

    • Greg Lentz on

      I think Gene finally realized that he would look terrible if he bad-mouthed Ace or Peter on take and did the “good PR” thing. We know his real stance on those guys.

    • Jim on

      I buy KISS CDs, and love their latest, “Monster”. Eddie is all about the “music”, right? So why does he focus on who is wearing what makeup? Ridiculous. It IS Wayne’s World, which is fine, but I don’t blame Paul at all for not wanting to come on the show. The conversation wouldn’t be about music – it would be about Tommy and Eric wearing the makeup. Who wants to hear that crap? Not this longtime KISS fan.

    • Eddie on

      How do you know what we would talk about. Amazing that everyone discounts all the good things huh? And it is about music, until the people making it start to dress, move, play and act like others that CREATED IT!

    • Sal A. on

      It’s stuff like this that affirms the True Reality : there IS NO KISS – what is currently on display is a TRIBUTE BAND…and a half-way decent tribute band at that, with fat-Simmons waddleing around the stage and a Paul Stanley who is in need of retireing as well, wigs and all. But this is what happens when former members are repeatedly attacked in the press. Don’t Gene and Paul realize that Ace Frehley has a rather rabid following of fans and that when the mudslingging at him happens – it hurts the fans as well ??? Especially as Ace is sober now…c’mon Gene and Paul : retire already !!

You have supported Kiss for 30 years on the air, were tirelessly campaigning to get the band into the HOF, and this is how he treats you?! Yeah,whatever. How many viewers of the Talk go to Kiss shows or buy Kiss cds? Alienating your fans must be the new business model, huh Paul? Keep up the good work, Eddie.

    • Eddie on

      Thanks Jeff.

  • Scott McGee on

    Like you said Eddie, TMS is doing just fine without him being on it. Thanks for all you do!

  • Steve on

    Why don’t you just have someone else come on in his make up and pretend it’s him- that’s what he does with Ace & Peter now in KISS

    • Scott McGee on

      I nearly spit my water out when I read this lol. Can you imagine Paul’s reaction to that?

    • Jimi on

      Ha ha good one, Steve. And actually, that would be hilarious 🙂

    • Allen on

      Steve FTW! Perfectly stated my friend.

    • Brent on

      Right on, Steve.

    • Joe Pensanti on

      Steve: LOL! that would be great…Craig Gass does a good Paul impersonation, that’d be funny as all hell!

    • luke on

      Or do like Conan obrien used to… Get a tv with a pic of Paul with mouth cut out. Then have an impersonator do the mouth movements and voice lol
