Taylor Hawkins & Paul Stanley Join Forces From
Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has a new solo EP out titled "Kota",
and on one of the songs features the vocal stylings of KISS frontman
Paul Stanley. Together the two iconic rockers are featured on the
song, "Bob Quit His Job."
"It's about my old neighbor," Hawkins told the O.C. Register. "At
the very end of it, too, that's Paul Stanley from KISS. We took some
of his live banter from KISS shows off of the Internet and stuck it
in there. I asked him, like, 'Hey, I put your banter in the song to
make it sound like a live KISS album or something, can I do that?'
He was like, 'Hell yeah, go for it."

KISS Related Recordings In
1988 Eric Carr signed all female Trash band
HARI KARI to his company, Streetgang
Now you can start bidding for the HARI KARI 1988 demo tape as well
as for the HARI KARI press kit which was designed by Eric Carr.
NOTE : the info on the backstageauction website isn't fully right,
so below is the info I got from Hari Kari bass-player Charisse
Texeira-Palma some years ago.
During 1988 - 1989 Eric Carr managed and was the executive producer
The first demo (1988) was recorded at the Record Plant, New York
City, and was produced and engineered by Dave Spitz.
In 1989 Eric Carr re-engineered the demo with a couple of
different songs and with Charisse singing.
Eric Carr funded both of the demo's but was only available to
engineer the 2nd due to touring. He also employed Mark Weiss as
their photographer, and Eric created a kit to promote the band. Hari
Kari was never signed to a recording contract.
