After feeling like hell the last couple weeks finally went to the Dr today to see what was up. Some sinus infection so he gave me the ole Z Pack to knock it out. He also told me a new study pretty much says almost all vitamins (including C for cold season) are a waste of money! Can we all get our money back? I swear it is impossible to do the right thing it seems! Regardless I will be back live tonight on Q104.3 NYC 11P-2A ET. Join me for music, talk, news and more, plus lot’s of giveaways. Listen at www.q1043.com or use the free iHeartradio app outside NYC area.


Interesting interview just posted in this sites news section with Paul Stanley on the HOF. I must say he makes many valid points about the Hall in general and I give him credit for speaking out that forcefully on the eve of his own induction. This is one instance where I agree with Paul. Kiss was snubbed for 15 years. This is something I’m sure the HOF (and I know some of their voters) still wish was not happening. Us fans feel this is important, but it is truly a joke if you look at the process and the rules as I have been saying for years. But if they are showing up, and it is only the original lineup (which it is being inducted), let’s hope it is done with the proper respect to that band. I am NOT looking for any original Kiss reunion, but I think MOST fans would agree it’s not asking for too much for a song or two one last time with Ace, Peter, Gene & Paul. We shall see soon. Some news has to come out very soon one way or the other because tickets are about to go on sale and fans will want to know exactly what they are buying and seeing that night no doubt. Let’s also not lose sight of the fact that for us Kiss is the story here. But in reality there are several other bands going in and for the HOF Kiss is likely viewed as a necessary evil here unfortunately. I assure you they are internally more excited about Springsteen’s band or Nirvana in truth. More very soon I’m sure..


Speaking of Kiss, they are one of many bands playing in Mexico City next month at the Hell & Heaven Fest. I was just brought on by the promoter to appear at this event both days. I am not going for interviews or media or TMS. I am going to do some fan meet & greets, stage announces and whatever else the promoter asks of me for the weekend. Whatever my personal feelings about Kiss now, or any band for that matter are, they have nothing to do with an event like this. I didn’t make the lineup and it is not about what I think. I am there to be a pro for the promoter, meet fans, and whatever else may come up. If you are going hope to see you. More news when I have it.


Hope you enjoy the all new TMS tomorrow night 11/10C on VH1C.


Me, Don & Jim live on stage 8P tomorrow night at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville NJ. I will be selling and signing both books and have merch for sale as well pre and post show. These are live stand up shows, NOT TMS tapings. It’s almost sold out but hope to see you there.


Have a good weekend, happy Valentine’s day.

    Hey Eddie, I appreciate the AC/DC update that you posted on Twitter. Nice to see they are going to give it one more go.
    I hate to be one of those folks who asks you about guests, but any chance Brian Johnson gets on TMS this season? I know, I know, it’s who Viacom wants; it’s whether or not the artist is available. But Brian obviously seems to like doing interviews, and it’s also obvious he respects you and is a fan of TMS. So I’m thinking maybe a personal phone call from you…

    Thanks again, see you on MOR cruise.

      Brian was on and is welcome back whenever he wants

    Hi Eddie,
    Just wanted to weigh in on some recent issues. I’m a big fan of the show since the beginning, and went and saw you and the guys at Portland Oregon’s Hawthorne Theater in 2011. Any chance you’ll come back to Portland?

    I actually agree with a lot of Ted Nugent’s take on the issues of the day (except for the hunting thing, no judgement, no interest) but I am often put off by the way he says it. But he wouldn’t be Uncle Ted otherwise, and the decision to have him on the show was solid.

    On the Death Metal front, yes, I would like to see Six Feet Under’s Chris Barnes on the show (I think he would make a great guest), or those guys from Immortal, but from the outset I accepted the commitment to classic hard rock and heavy metal, and I appreciate the show very much.

    Never mind about the Portland question, I see that you’ll be at the Tonic in Portland on April 5th. Nice.

    It looks to me that Paul is real upset that he has zero control of this induction. It’s ACE, GENE, PETER and PAUL. Sorry Paul. It’s just so stupid and childish Paul isn’t wanting to play with Ace and Peter. Gene alway says the fans are the boss!! Well if that’s the case and your not a lier Gene and Paul, play with the real KISS. Us true KISS fans r fed up with the current band. It’s a real vanilla lineup. Zero energy. I do appreciate Paul saying that they wouldn’t be here without Ace and Peter. They aren’t bad guys Paul. They love KISS as much as u and Gene. They deserve this just as much. Give us the real KISS!! WE WANT THE BEST, THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE WORLD!! KISS!!!!

      Seems he’s upset because KISS is still not getting treated like every other band out there. Get real, this is not the Hall ONLY wanting a certain lineup. This is a committee that didn’t want them in to start with and are still trying to stick it to them. This was gonna be a Nirvana /Springsteen band night from day 1.KISS . like Ed said were gonna be an after thought. Yet Original only fans somehow think it’s just the Originals, no, it’s a group that didn’t want them there to start with still doing what they can to keep the band they didn’t like in check.
