ACE ON EDDIE TRUNK RADIOSHOW RECAP & HOW YOU CAN HEAR IT AGAIN
(from eddietrunk.com)
Wow, maybe the most response to any radio show I have done in a long time! My good friend Ace Frehley returned to the studio to co-host this years KISSmass show and I am flooded with email from around the globe. I thank you all for the amazing response and apologize for not responding to all of you. As I have told you guys the last few years, Ace is doing great and is totally clean and sober. Last night everybody finally found out that is very much the truth as the "new" Ace was revealed for the first time exclusively on my show. Ace has been sober for 2 1/2 years but has lost none of his sense of humour. I have been friends with him for 20 years now and I am so proud of how he turned around his life. He is healthy and happy and very positive about so many things in his life. I am so glad that I was finally able to share with all of you what Ace is like now. Again, thank you all for the amazing response. I would also like to thank Andrew Ramsingh and Dave DiCasa for their help in the studio, Wayne Flagg and Sean Ryan for help with security, and Carol Kaye and Mac for helping to make this special night happen. In an unexpected surprise Ace actually premiered some new music, a brand new recording of 2000 Man! The show was a blast and another classic that I will never forget.

YOU CAN HEAR THIS SHOW AGAIN IN IT'S ENTIRETY ON ANY OF THE AFFILIATE STATIONS (LISTED UNDER "SYNDICATION") OR ONLINE ON WWW.KNAC.COM THIS THURSDAY AND SATURDAY FROM 10AM-1PM EST.

After these repeat airings there will be excerpts posted on this site as well as possibly a podcast version available. Below are some of the major points revealed by Ace during this exclusive special:

*He has nothing but positive things to say about all members of Kiss past and present. He said he has spoken to Paul several times and hopes to reach Gene soon. Now that he has changed his life he says he has no idea how Gene and Paul put up with him for as long as they did and he has no problem with anything they have done with the band and it's history. He feels that Tommy Thayer is the best possible replacement for him in Kiss. He feels his time in the band did not end that badly and simply believed that the Farewell Tour was a .... Farewell. He is open to doing one final show or tour with Kiss if approached. He wished all of the bands past and present members a Merry Christmas, as well as band manager Doc McGhee.

*Ace plans on touring in the Spring with an all new "All Star" band. He will also launch an official website soon that he hopes to sell his next CD on. No time table for when the CD will be done but it might be a 3 CD set with some different styles of music and maybe an all covers CD.

That's pretty much the major news to come out of the interview. Be sure to catch the replay as there was some really funny stuff said and you guys will love it if you missed it. Just way to much to get into in print but it was one for the ages. We also took live calls from the audience and managed to get a decent amount of music on as well that Ace gave some great stories about. My sincere thanks to Ace for being a great friend for so many years and for bringing me some great radio with his visit. Photos will be posted soon.

KISSANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF 'KISS ROCK THE NATION LIVE!'

TWO-DISC DVD CONCERT FILM OUT DECEMBER 13 ON IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT

Legendary rock group KISS will release the two-disc concert DVD set KISS ROCK THE NATION LIVE! December 13 via *Image Entertainment, Inc.
Filmed in high-definition during KISS' mind-blowing 2004 Rock The Nation tour, KISS ROCK THE NATION LIVE! features a vast collection of KISS gems, many performed live for the first time in years. Over two hours in length, the DVD set is teeming with 20 live performances of KISS classics including "Rock And Roll All Nite," "Detroit Rock City," "Lick It Up," "Shout It Out Loud," "Love Gun," "I Was Made for Lovin' You," "Deuce" and many more songs that have defined rock 'n roll. In addition, live versions of songs such as "Makin' Love," "Christine Sixteen," "She," "Tears Are Falling," "Got To Choose," Love Her All I Can," "I Want You," and "Parasite," are seen here for the first time.


An unprecedented look at KISS onstage and off, KISS ROCK THE NATION LIVE! is loaded with behind-the-scenes footage of the band, who've sold over 80 million albums worldwide. It includes soundchecks, photo sessions, life on the road and even a rare glimpse inside the famed KISS dressing room. An added bonus for die-hard fans is "KISS Powervision," an interactive feature that includes "Select-A-KISS," which allows viewers access to separate channels for each of the four band members. At any given moment, the viewer can watch the main concert program or switch to different cameras focusing on PAUL STANLEY, TOMMY THAYER, ERIC SINGER or GENE SIMMONS.


From their formative years in the early 70s to the present day, KISS--one of the most influential rock bands of all-time, inspiring many key rock, alternative and punk musicians--continue to make rock and roll history. After over 30 years of exhaustive touring around the globe, including high-profile appearances at Super Bowl XXXIII, the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and the 2004 Rockin' The Corps concert at Camp Pendleton where the group performed for U.S. troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The KISS legacy continues to grow, generation after generation, transcending age, race and creed. The unparalleled devotion and loyalty of the KISS Army is a striking testament to the band's unbreakable bond with their fans.
KISS ROCK THE NATION LIVE! gives KISS fans everywhere an exclusive fly-on-the-wall perspective that's the next best thing to being in the band. KISS are stronger and more vital than ever, commanding massive audiences in stadiums and areas around the world.

PAUL STANLEY SOLO ALBUM
(from Bravowords.com)

Special Report By Martin Popoff

He is, of course referring to his new solo album, the legendary KISS guitarist adding that, “I’m just looking and talking with various labels to see where it will wind up. I mean, it’s done, mixed and ready to go, and according to everybody who’s heard it, it’s damn good.”

“Modern is a scary word,” opines Stanley, when asked for a characterization of the record. “I would certainly say that it is very much in keeping with my personality and keeps a very consistent viewpoint, but it sounds really big and the songs are great. The singing is great and the songs are great and the playing is great. You know, so far so good.”

Quite diverse like Gene’s album, or is it a fairly unified sound?

“Well, it certainly… you know, not to be smart, but it’s consistent in its diversity. There’s enough divergence in terms of the songs, and yet they all sound like they belong on the same album. There’s nothing that’s experimental and there’s nothing that is out of character, but after doing this as long as I have, I’ve covered enough bases that I think I’ve just brought them all home on this album.”

Stanley is also celebrating the release of Kiss’ new DVD – Rock The Nation Live!, a gorgeous concert package shot in the DC area last year, stuffed with rarities like ‘Love Her All I Can’, ‘Tears Are Falling’ and ‘Makin’ Love’. Paul offers comment on the advantages of the two disc package. “Well, you know, the fact that it is high def makes a huge difference. And that we have this Kiss Powervision, as we’re calling it, where you can choose who you want to watch. And of course if you have your sanity and your good taste, you’ll be watching me. It’s a great concert and a great time capsule of the last tour. Again, what it does is that it very much says that this band really is justified in terms of the longevity and how people view the band, good or bad. I could care less. We are exactly who we aspire to be, and who we work our asses off to be. This isn’t a shadow of a bygone era. When we hit the stage, as in the last tour, you see a stage set up and show that is signature Kiss. The band looks and sounds like it was… you pick a year.”
