In an interview with Guitar World, ex-KISS guitarist Ace Frehley answered questions and plays some guitar. The focus of the interview is his new covers album, Origins Vol. 1 which came out recently.
About his choice of covers: “I knew this album was coming, and every time I got an idea or heard a song that I said, ‘That might be a good one to do,’ I’d write it down. And maybe I had had, like, thirty songs and I tried to pick ones that I thought I could do live also; that was a contributing factor in my decision.”
“I originally wasn’t that excited about it, but once I started the recording process, it just snowballed.
“I’m really happy with the nine covers and three remakes of KISS songs. I think it’s a good package.”
