Ace Frehley Recruits Former KISS Guitarist For Solo Album
Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley has revealed that he has recruited the band's former guitarist Bruce Kulick and John 5 to guest on his new covers album.
Frehley will be releasing "Origins Vol. 2 next March and shared with Eddie Trunk (via UCR) that Kulick performs on a cover of the Jimi Hendrix classic "Manic Depression" and John 5 will appear on Cream and Beatles covers.
Ace shared, "I have Bruce Kulick doing a solo on '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, 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.
So 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. So it's a really interesting mix."
