With orchestrated rock music featuring incredible guitar work, soaring vocals, and unparalleled musicianship, NLO succeeds in bringing back classic rock for the baby boomers as well as modernizing a beloved genre of rock music. "The Spirit Of Christmas" combines the talents of executive producer and longtime record executive Russ Regan (NEIL DIAMOND, ELTON JOHN and BARRY WHITE) as well as the incredible instrumental abilities of a number of renowned rock musicians. 
The brain child of the project is keyboardist/writer Brian Stewart (Backstreet Boys, Robert Plant, Hall & Oates, Poe) and produced by industry veteran Ken Mary (House of Lords, Trik Turner, Alice Cooper, The Beach Boys).

October 2 : Mike Japp - Kiss related songwriter - interview
From: Rockpages.gr
Rockpages.gr continues their KISS special feature with the 40th interview of a KISS-related figure. This week, Mike Japp was kind enough to write a few words about his collaboration with KISS. Here's an excerpt:

Mike Japp: A couple of years later Bill Aucoin came knocking on my door (Bill as you know managed KISS back then and we still stay in touch). He asked me to go to a hotel where Paul was staying and go do some writing, I said "Ok" and off I went to meet up with Paul. It was good to see him again and we started exchanging ideas. We worked for about 3 or 4 hours and I left there leaving behind a couple of ideas in completely naked form that have now become known as "Down on your Knees" and "Saint and Sinner".

Gene and I met at SIR for the first time and off we went on a writing spree at Diana Ross's house where Gene was staying for awhile. We wrote many things and had different titles every other day for the same song! We would change things inside out, to outside in; it was a lot of fun though. Paul and I had great fun also in different ways when writing. Gene and I ended up finishing off the idea that I had left with Paul at the hotel on the tape. That idea became "Saint and Sinner" (which of course had a least 3 titles before that).
