Eddie Trunk premiered the Eddie Trunk Podcast today on PodcastOne.com , the leader in audio on-demand programing and a division of Courtside Entertainment Group. Trunk’s weekly podcast debuted with English Heavy Metal band, Judas Priest. Eddie Trunk, the most well known name in hard rock and metal music, brings his insight, commentary, reviews and in-depth, unfiltered interviews to the podcast world in a way like never before! “I’ve been asked for many years by fans about adding a podcast to my platforms. Really excited to finally launch one with PodcastOne and see where this new adventure takes me
Watched an early screener of an upcoming new documentary on Quiet Riot called “Now Your Here There’s No Way Back”. Found it to be really good. It was sad, funny, and very honest in what they showed and how it was dealt with.
Last night we posted a story in the news section that was sent to me via Twitter about Kiss replacing Gene and Paul and continuing on with a band of no original members. We later found out the original story was from 2008. While the haters will just attack and say it was calculated to further some insane anti – Kiss agenda (love how I am so anti Kiss and STILL PLAY ALL THEIR MUSIC, too funny!), I left it up for two reasons. One the amount of differing opinions on this generated in comments was interesting and ALL views were posted, and two this is still the plan and closer than ever to happening! If this is what they were planning 6 years ago it is really just around the corner now! Clearly the way they do it might be altered but this is still happening and the band has discussed it in the press even recently. So nothing has changed except for it is more imminent! I am hearing maybe two years away from launching at this point with the current (Gene and Paul) band having maybe one more run left after the current tour
KISS IN TALKS TO LAUNCH A TV TALENT SHOW TO FIND REPLACEMENTS FOR BAND MEMBERS PAUL STANLEY AND GENE SIMMONS
The manager of KISS has confirmed the group are in talks to launch a TV talent show to find replacements for frontman Paul Stanley and guitarist Gene Simmons – when the duo eventually retire. It has long been rumored that founding members Stanley and Simmons hope to keep the band running when they decide to quit – but both men have been evasive when asked about whether any new members have been signed up and if the takeover will happen after their current world tour. The rock veterans are the only original members left in the band, which was marred by the departure of Ace Frehely and Peter Criss and the death of Eric Carr in 1991 – the group now includes replacements Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer. However their longtime manager Doc McGhee insists that there are indeed plans to replace all four band members and keep KISS alive for a new generation – they are close to signing a deal to find their replacements through an American Idol-style TV show. McGhee says in a new TV documentary about the band, “I believe that KISS can go on forever

Songfacts: How does the songwriting work in Judas Priest? Glenn Tipton: It can be anywhere around. What we normally do is go and get our own bunch of ideas together and then we meet up, throw it into the pot and see what comes out.

KISS FRONTMAN PAUL STANLEY SAYS THAT ACE FREHLEY AND PETER CRISS “WANTED EQUAL SAY WHEN THEY DIDN’T DO EQUAL WORK”
The OC Weekly spoke with KISS frontman Paul Stanley about his new autobiography, Face The Music: A Life Exposed . In it the singer recounts many stories including one that claimed drummer Peter Criss went on a racist rant at a Chinese restaurant and quitting the band for a few days and crawling back. “[Peter] didn’t crawl back,” Stanley says. “He swallowed his pride and pseudo machismo and came back. But part of the dynamic of the band was to have to pragmatically deal with the fact that two of the guys were often times more interested in sabotaging the band, sabotaging [bassist/vocalist] Gene [Simmons] and I, than doing the right thing.
