  GENE SIMMONS COLLABORATES WITH ACE FREHLEY ON GUITARIST'S NEW SOLO ALBUM
28th June 2017

Kiss bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons has revealed an interview with Ray Erick on Minnesota classic rock radio station 92 KQRS that he has co-written two songs for Ace Frehley's next solo album.

Gene was asked if Kiss have any plans to return to the studio to make new music and said:

"Well, I suppose at some point. But literally two days ago I was with Ace, who's not in the band — he used to be in the band three different times — and we wrote two songs.

"He asked me to write for his next solo record. So I went over to his place, way out in the desert some place, and we wrote two things. And eventually the band [Kiss] will go back in [the studio]. But there's no great incentive, because the record industry, the entire thing, is so dysfunctional. You work hard and you get paid, and if we're gonna work a year on a record, I wanna get paid too.

"Kiss is not a charity. We make a difference between what we do personally and as a band. We buy houses for vets, we supply jobs, we give money to charity, but that's 'cause I wanna give. I don't want anybody deciding that our art, our music, our concerts is free, because 'you have enough money'."

Ace's last solo album, 'Origins Vol 1' featured a guest appearance by Paul Stanley who played on a cover of the Free classic 'Fire And Water'. Ace reached out to Gene about contributing to the album but it didn't happen because "either Gene didn't get the message or he was just too busy," Ace told the WPDH 101.5 FM radio station last year.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
