Ace Frehley Wants Gene Simmons On All-Star Covers Album

(hennemusic) Ace Frehley is sharing an update on plans for an all-star covers album as the follow-up to his 2014 effort, "Space Invader." Frehley originally revealed last summer that the project was in the works and would include guests like Slash, Lita Ford, and Mike McCready from Pearl Jam.

"The album's going to be about my influences," Frehley tells Billboard. "I'm probably going to do a Rolling Stones song, a Who song, possibly a Led Zeppelin song, maybe a Beatles song. Stuff from bands that I grew up on and greatly influenced me. Those are the songs I'd redo, besides vintage Kiss stuff and a Frehley's Comet track."

The guitarist says he has done some overdubs and intends to track another six to eight songs, then pick the best 12 to focus on. The album's track list isn't solidified, but he says he's "probably going to redo both 'Cold Gin' and 'Parasite.' On Kiss records, I'm not singing lead. So I'm going to sing lead on them like I do live so there's studio tracks out there with me."

"I was actually going to ask Gene Simmons to play bass on a track and sing with me," he adds. "I haven't gotten to that stage yet." Read more here.
