Had Ace Frehley on my radio show today. Ace confirmed he has written 2 songs with Gene for his next solo album. Ace maintains he has had no offer from Gene or Paul to rejoin the band. He gets the fan interest and thinks if it gets loud enough from fans it could happen. But swears there is nothing in the works he is aware of. He said his recent weight loss (which has also fueled reunion talk) was due to back problems. He is continuing to go about his business as a solo artist for now, but ruled nothing out. He agreed that Paul and Gene are smart and said they are driven by business and money, so if the offers get big enough it’s all possible. But for now nothing he is aware of involves his with Kiss despite how things look. We also talked about Love Gun at 40 and more. Great and funny chat as always. Hear it again tonight 9-11P ET on SiriusXM 106 Volume or on the SiriusXM app.

Attending final Peter Criss show in NYC Saturday. Looking forward to it and thanks to Peter and Gigi for the invite to this special night. See you there if going to The Cutting Room!
Hosted a fun hour long SiriusXM Town Hall with Nickelback yesterday. Nickelback is one of those bands that are very polarizing. Many love them (they’ve sold over 50 million albums!), and then they have their haters for sure. I never understood the hate. I admit I was never a huge fan, always a kind of take it or leave it thing for me. Some good songs, but I had and have no strong feelings one way or the other. But the segment of hate for them always baffled me. Some resent their success I guess? But I can tell you having met them all for the first time yesterday they were great guys, fun, no ego, just a nice group of guys that have had mega success in rock. I enjoyed the conversation and you can hear it now On Demand and also replaying this weekend 8-10P ET on Volume. Their new album is out Friday for those that are fans. Tomorrow writer Curt Gooch calls in to talk Kiss and Angel. Thursday Foghat drummer Roger Earl and Glenn Danzig are my guests. It’s all LIVE 2-4P ET on 106, replay 9-11P ET, and On Demand on the SiriusXM app.
On the FM side welcome new station WZDB 95.9 Altoona PA. They join the Eddie Trunk Rocks affiliates airing Saturday’s 7-10P.
New podcast this Thursday is with Nicko McBrain!
