Interesting choice in Rock and Roll Hell since the rumor was that the song was written about Ace.

Yea, I think I heard that once too. Oh, here it is...

Razz

I pulled out Space Invader this week to give it a fresh spin in anticipation of this new one coming. It's such a good album.

I have never been disappointed with Ace and I don't think that's going to happen with the new covers release. That sounds good.

he last two weeks of the record I went up to L.A. I got John 5 and Lita Ford on the record the same day and that weekend Paul recorded the vocal for “Fire and Water”, while I was doing overdubs, and then he emailed the vocal back to us. I put a guitar solo on and we just mixed it. That was it. The whole process for “Fire and Water” was about four days from beginning to end.

emailing the vocals ? Really ?

This comes out this Friday (04.15) and it's on sale at Best Buy for $8.99. I had some BB reward points burning a hole in my virtual pocket, so I pre-ordered it. Along with a few other goodies.

Don't tell my wife I spent it all on magic beans again. What a Face

Really digging this one. Even for a covers album, Ace has the ability to make these songs his own.

The only 2 tracks that I don't care much for is 'Street Fighting Man', mostly because that song has been overplayed in it's original form already, and 'Wild Thing' with Lita Ford. She's trying too hard to sound sexy and it just comes off as corny. Just like Diamond Dave is too old for that crap, so is Lita.

I've given it a couple of listens and I think it's pretty cool as well. The only track I'm not too keen on is Rock And Roll Hell. I guess I'm just too use to the KISS original.

It's an interesting listen to be sure, but it's too bad the production is not better. That would have really made a difference. The drums sound especially bad to my ears.

I'm enjoying it but I've been listening on YouTube since my vinyl copy hasn't arrived at my door yet.

I got it last Friday night, but haven't busted the plastic yet. I will tomorrow. I have been on a big Lizzy Borden kick the last few days. And, I spun the new live Metallica 4 times earlier in the week.

Alright, halfway thru and I am really liking it. Especially, the cover of "Emerald" even though it's weird to hear someone other than Phil singing.

Nice to see Paul doing a tune with him. I guess Paul doesn't have the same attitude towards Ace that Gene does?

They made a video too...


Something must've went wrong with Ace's guitar though. It was smokin'

Spinning this again now and I really like it, Just a bit surprised at the inclusion of 3 Kiss songs. Even though "Rock and Roll Hell" might be about Ace, he wasn't on that album, so a tongue in cheek recording may be a way of putting the past to rest? But the other 2 songs, Ace was in the band then, so those are a bit puzzling. I guess, "Origins" refers to his early work and also what shaped him as a musician- the outside influences that did so.

Just speculating on my end, but even though they are both stone-classic Ace tunes, Gene did the vocals on 'Cold Gin' and 'Parasite' because at the time, Ace felt he couldn't sing.

Debates on whether he can sing now nonewithstanding, Ace has since gone on to play them both live for years, so I guess he figured it was time he officially put it to tape.
