8/19: W COAST THIS WEEKEND, UPDATE ON FL APPEARANCES, MORE.

What a jam packed fun SiriusXM show last night! Ace Frehley was in studio during the first hour. Ace just did a non stop week of press in support of his new CD Space Invader which came out today. He was in great spirits and as usual we had some laughs and shared some stories and had a blast. Despite everything Ace is incredibly positive about everything and is soon going to celebrate 8 years of being sober. Having known him almost 30 I am most proud of him for this. Looks like a big first week on the charts for Ace is coming which will be good to see. Live shows are up in the air at the moment but he did say he hopes to do a few before end of the year.

Slash called in from the road and talked Aerosmith, raising kids, his next album and more. Always good talking with him also. His album is out next month and I’ll be hosting a show with him at The Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood FL 8/29. Also will be hosting Deep Purple there 8/31. Please note I will be selling and signing books at both shows but AFTER the concerts inside the casino at the Hard Rock Cafe. Neither show has an opening act. Slash on at 8 sharp, Purple at 7. So come have a beer and grab a book if you want after the shows inside the casino at the cafe at around 10:15P after Slash and 9P after Purple. Vol 1 & 2 will be available for purchase.

Finally had Mark from Accept and Doro in studio, and Wolf from Accept on the phone in the final hour. New Accept out today also and sounds great! A few US shows this year, more next year for them. All of these interviews available On Demand with the SiriusXM app. You must be a subscriber to listen.

My podcast continues to be Top 5 music on Itunes. Thank you! New this Thursday with Tom Keifer. Another podcast exclusive.

Headed to the W coast tomorrow. I’ll be doing live shows with Don & Jim at Vamp’d in Vegas Thursday (love Vegas and this club!), the legendary Whiskey in LA this Friday, and the Ramona Main Stage in the San Diego area Saturday. Hope to see many of our W coast friends this weekend at the gigs. I will have signed copies of both of my books for sale at all shows.

TMS returns to taping new shows Jan 2015.

Comments

  1. Have a great time Eddie. EAT, DRINK, ROCK! :)

  2. Will see u at DP Eddie…7 pm sharp for DP with no opener sounds real early, but I’ll be there…

  3. Not much enthusiasm when you say you are hosting Purple. I would be beside myself with excitement! You mention it like an afterthought… “Oh, and hosting Deep Purple on the 31st.”…Not being sarcastic, just telling you what it looks like when I read it. Did the guys in Purple ask you to host? What a huge honor to even be on the stage with them!

    • Maybe I should have added some punctuation? Sorry man, I’m juggling around 85 things daily. Not sure how to convey the excitement you require in text. I mean I only scream they are the #1 HOF snub for the last 20 years so not sure what other proof you need of my respect for the band

  4. Looking forward to meeting you and purchasing your books after the Slash show.

  5. That’s ashame, Ace puts out a new cd and might do a few shows. What’s the point of new music
    if you don’t go out to support it?

  6. Mark Ellis says:

    Downton Abbey AND TMS back in Jan–good times.

  7. Jim From Houston says:

    ED, Why exactly is Ace up in the air about Live shows? Not wanting to tour/desire? Lazy? Health? Cost? it seems like Touring is the biggest revenue for older bands and his reluctance to do so is confusing? i really think rejoin Regan and Howarth would be good for him and let him let others handle parts of the show that he may not want to deal with on and off the stage.

  8. Hi Dana, I just wanted to wish you a very happy birthday! I know it’s tomorrow, but I will be out most of the day, and just wanted to make sure I got my birthday wish in, in time! So whatever you do, have a great time, and LIVE IT UP! ;)
    HAPPY BIRHTDAY DANA, CHEERS! :)

  9. Top 5 and climbing! You deserve the all the success my friend. You are a ROCK STAR!!!

  10. There’s something almost avant-garde about Ace.

    • Red Rooker says:

      I can see why you would think that, being from staten island and all. Lol, he put out a decent album for the old fart that got booted out of his band that he is, but “avant-garde” is pretty funny.

      Keep posting, love it!

    • Ace reminds me an eccentric, unpredictable, and brilliant collage professor or something. I love watching him in interviews because he is just so–himself. You can tell he is not prepared for any questions and he just answers the first thing that comes to mind. He is probably one of the few people who can get away with that because he’s just so easygoing. I’m just looking forward to his new album tomorrow (finally getting to me via Amazon). Better late than never.

  11. Beth Milligan says:

    Happy birthday Dana. Hope all is well with all of you. Recently saw the Download 2014. As always only getting a fraction of the music, but was still good to see. Aerosmith still looking so great.
