Kim Monroe’s Music Minute September 9th & 10th

Legendary rock Paul Stanley of Kiss recently discussed the band’s longevity.  He said that he feels blessed that fans still come to shows and not just for the sake of nostalgia.  Stanley went on to say that folks get what they expect and that the current line up which includes himself, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer is in a very stable place, no tension.

As the surviving members of Stone Temple Pilots ready their 25th anniversary edition of their debut album “Core,” bassist Dean DeLeo paused to talk about the old days with Scott Weiland.  One of the tracks for official release is the stripped down version of “Wicked Garden” from Mtv Unplugged.  DeLeo also shared his feelings on the loss of both STP singers, Scott Weiland and Chester Bennington.  He also said the search for a new singer continues.

So, there was that one time on Saturday Night Live…Dave Grohl shared a story about the Foo Fighters becoming the back up band for Mick Jagger when he hosted the show.  Grohl said the band had a gig that night that they were told they could not cancel, so they helicopter’d back and forth.  Dave said Mick was a really cool guy!
