In a recent interview with SiriusXM radio’s “Trunk Nation: LA Invasion”, former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley confirmed that former Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick will be joining his new solo album, “Origins Vol. 2”, in addition to of several other names that will collaborate on the work, such as Lita Ford, Robin Zander, John 5 and more.
“I have Lita Ford singing (Rolling Stones) ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’. I have Robin Zander singing ’30 Days In The Hole’ by Humble Pie. It came out fabulous. It was a lot of fun working with Lita, ’cause Lita’s like my sister. Kiss and The Runaways used to tour together back in the ’70s…
I have [former Kiss guitarist] Bruce Kulick doing a solo on [Jimi Hendrix’s] ‘Manic Depression’. I have John 5 playing on a Beatles song, ‘I’m Down’. And he did one other song, ‘Politician’ by Cream… If you listen to the CREAM version, [Eric] Clapton does a double solo — he’s playing two solos at the same time.
So what me and John 5 did is, he did a solo, I did a solo, and then Alex Salzman, my engineer, we did a crossfade. If you listen to the song with headphones on, you hear me going from one side to the other, and John going from one side back. It’s a really interesting mix. If you listen to it with headphones, you’ll get a big kick out of it.”
“It was finished a couple of months ago, and now we’re just at the process of mastering and sequencing it…”
“Originally, we were supposed to put it out in January, and now the record company wants to hold the release date till March. I don’t know anything about selling records; I just know how to make ’em. So if they say they wanna put it out in March, I say fine. It gives me more time to work on writing new material for my next studio record.”
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
