Ace Frehley recruits Paul Stanley and Slash
Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley revealed the details for his forthcoming covers album "Origins Vol. 1" which will include guest appearances from his former bandmate Paul Stanley, Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, Pearl Jam's Mike McCready, and others.
The new effort will be released on April 15th and feature covers of the songs that inspired the guitarist including tracks from Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Steppenwolf, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, Thin Lizzy, Free and more. He also includes three covers of KISS tracks.
Frehley reached out to his former KISS bandmate Paul Stanley to provide vocals on the cover of Free's "Fire and Water," and the guitarist tells Rolling Stone that the media has made more of the differences between him and Stanley than there actually is. "We've always been friends," he told the publication.
