(Blabbermouth) Bob Suehs of Rock N Roll Experience conducted an interview with original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley on Thursday (August 20) where he comments on the new KISS single and his former band's Walmart deal. An excerpt from the chat follows below.
Rock N Roll Experience: Have you heard the new KISS single, "Modern Day Delilah" (audio stream available at the full story link)?
Ace Frehley: Actually, I did. I thought it was a good song. Paul's [Stanley, guitar, vocals] always been a really good writer and the only thing that I would say that the song didn't live up to was the fact that I believe they said that all the new songs were going to sound like stuff from the '70s, and I didn't get that. The new song sounded like it could be something off an album they did in the '80s. That's what I got, but I thought it was a good song.
Rock N Roll Experience: What do you think of KISS selling their new CD exclusively through Wal-Mart?
Ace Frehley: It seems that more and more groups are going with major chains, and I mean, I guess there's a plus to the fact that they'll give you a large advance, but the minus is the album is only available in that chain of stores. I guess there's pluses and minuses to everything. I mean, I entertained that idea, but, for me, I thought it was better that my album be available everywhere. - more on this story
