Episode 4: Alter Bridge & Matt Nathanson



Guest Guitarist: Steve Brown

This episode was damn good! It was funny in all the right spots, but more importantly Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti and Matt Nathanson had me totally engaged with everything they were talking about. I got chills listening to Myles talking about performing with 3/4 of Led Zeppelin. I just wished that they had talked even more about that 'once in a lifetime' moment. But what really surprised me was listening to Matt. I had no knowledge of who the guy was when he walked onto the TMS stage, but he OWNED it! He comes off as a real, legit Metal fan and it's just odd that he is a Folk singer. But I love how he wants to play metal in spite of his "musical limitations". That's two episode of kick ass TMS. I gave last weeks episode 5 Stars. But THIS episode is by far the best one yet this season.

SPOILER ALERT. DON'T READ ANY FURTHER UNTIL YOU HAVE WATCHED THE EPISODE.

They talk a lot about KISS on this episode which was great. Kind of needed to hear an enthusiastic perspective about THE band I grew up with, especially coming on the heels of the disastrous news regarding the RARHOF pertaining to no Reunion happening. So, it was really fun to hear about them geeking out on KISS.

Episode 6: Lamb Of God



Guest Drummer: Charlie Benante

So, Lamb Of God has been around for almost 15 years. Well, you can count me as one of the few that knows absolutely nothing about them personally. Nada. Zero. So, I was kind of surprised that I took an interest in what they had to say. Sure, a good chunk of the interview dealt primarily about being sent to prison because of a tragic accident in which one of their fans died at their show. I'm definitely going to see about checking out As The Palaces Burn Documentary. Overall, a solid episode. I did like that Charlie, even though he was there as the Guest Drummer, decided to show off his playing skill on the axe. He's never going to be in the same field of guitar virtuoso. I just like him changing it up for the show is all.

Episode: 7 - Mick Jones & Leslie West



Guest Guitarist: Lita Ford

This episode took me off guard. It had nothing to do with the guest, but everything to do with when it was taped. Up till now, all the previous seasons are taped months in advance, 2-4 episodes a day are taped and then put on the shelf until VH1 Classic feels it's time to start a new "season" of TMS. So, when Eddie opens the show, addressing the debacle that is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and KISS and pointing out Ace Frehley calling his radio show, I did a double take and realized immediately this episode was in fact taped no longer than 4 weeks ago. Not sure if the entire season was pre-taped as before and that they started taping newer episodes to capitalize on the heat that is RARHOF and KISS. Whatever the case may be, I prefer that they stop with the pre-tape and continue with fresh episodes. One of the annoying things about previous seasons is that by the time they aired, they would be talking about stuff that was already long gone and outdated. At least this way, things will be as current as you can get for an episode that usually takes 4 weeks from booking, filming, editing to airing.

As for the guest, I liked that they mixed it up and brought on Leslie and Mick. Good change of pace. I just wished that Mick had more to talk about. Maybe he did, but the guys were fixated on Leslie. I guess giving Eddie another guitar as a gift guarantees you more air time. As for Lita, I'm glad they finally got a chick up on stage to perform. F*ck this 'Guys Club' mentality. Her playing was good, but she's not a fret burner, so it's not going to be like other Guest Guitarist from previous episodes. She's kind of like Paul Stanley's "lead playing", it's the right amount to show people you can play, but not going overboard with technique. I actually think her leading playing is better than Paul's. But Paul has the better riffs and rhythm playing, which has nothing to do with the episode. It was great seeing Marty Friedman. Loved his question directed to Mick. Overall, solid episode.

Episode 8: Mick Mars



Guest Guitarist: Tom Keifer

What a great episode. When it comes to booking a Guest Guitarist, Tom is the last person one would think of. I have always considered him to be very underrated. He's not a barn burner, but he can play some great leads and has always been really great at coming up with riffs. I thought he played great on the show. Speaking of underrated guitar players, it's about damn time they got Mick Mars on the show. Out of all the members of Motley Crue, he is the one that I have been waiting for. Vince Neil and Tommy Lee have been done to death. We don't need another hour of THEIR soundbites. Nikki Sixx is by far the best interviewee from the band. But as great as he is, I'm glad TMS went with Mick instead. What few interviews I have caught of him over the years, they have always been insightful. He has a lot to say and he didn't disappoint me at all here. Would love to see him return to TMS as a guest as well as Guest Guitarist in the future.

Episode 9: Dee Snider



Guest Guitarist: Chris Caffery

Meh. This wasn't a horrible episode. It's just not memorable. I've seen a million Dee Snider interviews and he always has something to say. Never dull. But in this one, through no fault of his own, everyone seemed to be phoning it in. I doubt I will ever bother to watch this episode again. Also, didn't really care for Caffery's guitar playing at all. Average episode. Now bring on Peter Criss!

Episode 10: Peter Criss



Guest Drummer: Richard Christy

This is the one episode that I've been waiting a long time to see. Ever since the RARHOF debacle and the fall out from Team Gene and Paul refusing to play with Team Ace and Peter and the constant b*tching from all sides via Forums, Twitter, Facebook and radio shows, I was very much looking forward to hearing what Peter had to say about it all. The only problem is....not very much was said beyond acknowledging that KISS got inducted. There was no mention of backroom politics from the Hall or the KISS camp. There was no elaboration about whether or not Peter was asked to perform with the current KISS line up. It's not till the very end does Peter get to say his piece and it's nothing new that we haven't already read in print a thousand times already online. Other than that, it was a typical interview where they also addressed the show he played with Ace a couple of months back. The show was good, but it would have benefited from having Ace on hand as promised. Sigh. We are left with what could have been.......

My TOP 5 70's KISS Songs are:

1 Love Gun
2 Do You Love Me
3 Rock and Roll All Night
4 Strutter
5 Black Diamond

The Throwdown: KISS Alive! vs. KISS Alive II

When I was a kid, it was Alive II and NOTHING could touch that. But as I got older....and wiser, in spite of it not really being "Live", I have come to appreciate what Alive! did for the band. Overall, I just think it's a better performance on vinyl. So, Alive! for the win.

Peter Criss (TMS Rank the Rock Segment)



After the episode, I headed straight to the bonus clips to see what they cut out of the episode. Having just watched Rank the Rock, what the f*ck were the guys at TMS thinking to cut this out? This is actually the best thing about anything that was recorded. They dropped the ball big time here. As much fun and cool as this segment is, I have to totally disagree with where Peter ranked them. Yes, it's HIS choices, but it doesn't mean I have to agree with it. I rank them as followed: Destroyer, KISS, Rock and Roll Over, Love Gun, Hotter Than Hell and Dressed to Kill. Really don't get how Peter would have DTK in the #1 slot. Right now, both Paul and Gene having just watched this segment are saying "see, he is still on drugs and can't be trusted to perform at a high level......".  :P

Hey I gave it 4 stars too.  I liked the show.....I was very bummed Ace wasn't there because I was very curious what his updates would be.  Peter doesn't really have a hand to play getting back in the band...so my eyes are focused directly on Ace, his new record and the road to him getting back in KISS.

Richard Christie was an interesting musical guest.  I know him from the Howard Stern show and he's very funny...he's a great drummer but I wasn't really impressed by what he did on the show...or I should say I didn't care for the choices he made...it was kind of a mess and looked like a guy frantically trying to play as fast as possible....he's much better than that...but clearly doesn't have a good sense of what might have been "cool" for his little parts.

Peter's rank the rock was very cool....I would have loved to see him do the solo records and all the way up to Dynasty

:)

I'd go Alive or Alive II...that said...I am popping on Alive II right now~!!

I was surprised he picked Dressed to Kill has his number 1.  I thought he'd have gone Destroyer or the first record.  I love Dressed to Kill personally...not a perfect record but I think the first 3 records...all kick major ass...and then I'd rank the later 3..

I think my personal order would go KISS, Dressed to Kill, Hotter than Hell, Rock and Roll Over, Love Gun, and then Destroyer.

I didn't care for Richard's drumming. As you said, it was all over the place and the thing that kept popping into my head was Animal from The Muppets.

They should have had him rank Psycho Circus. I'm positive he would have put that at #2, just behind his '78 Solo album.  ;D
