Live Your Dream” with Charlotte last year in conjunction with Michael's book “Looking Inside: The Stainless Sensation”, a 500 page deluxe bound definitive history of John DeLorean, the DMC 12 and the DeLorean Motor Company.

Charlotte sings 5 of the new tracks plus adding backing vocals on almost all the other tracks. Like on all Shameless releases, Tuff singer Stevie Rachelle, sang on a couple of the songs. Kiss legend
Bruce Kulick is featured on a total of 4 songs including their version of the unreleased Gene Simmons song “Love is blind” and the cover of “East Bound And Down” where the band was joined by Jaret Reddick of Bowling For Soup on vocals. Tracii Guns appears as well on the new release.

March 14 : rare GLAMNATION (Eric Singer) video footage found
From : Tolvis
A friend of mine just found his old master video tapes from when GLAMNATION toured Scandinavia in April 2000. He kindly lent me the tapes to transfer and upload, they're not spectacular by any means but (like most of you) I never thought I'd see film and sound footage of Eric Singer performing with GLAMNATION.

From : KISS Related Recordings

GLAMNATION was a L.A. Glam covers band formed in 1999 by Ryan Roxie (Electric Angels).
The fun glam band used to play around the L.A. area in summer of 1999 and even did play Scandinavia April 2000. The 2000 line up was Eric Singer (drums, lead vocals), Ryan Roxie (guitars), Eric Dover (lead vocals, guitars), Stefan Adika (bass) and Teddy Zig Zag (keyboards).
Except for bass player Stefan Adika (L.A. Guns,
Gilby Clarke), the 2000 line up of GlamNation became Alice Cooper 2001 backing band, and with Chuck Garric on bass they recorded "The Eyes Of Alice Cooper" (2003).

February 13 : detail page for Mr. GEE WHIZ
featuring Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley 1973 session work added

From : KISS Related Recordings
Thanks to Julian Gill and Jon-Robert Solbakken I was able to fix a detail page for a rare KISS related recording. In the "Nothin' to Lose" book, Gene Simmons suggests that members of the band did session work for this "bizarre, eclectic pop" project in 1973.  One of the writers (Alessandro Longo) was a house-writer for Dick James. A single was released in (at least) the UK in Sept. 1974, but the copyright for the songs had been registered with a batch of other songs in Sept. 1973. click here for more details

From the "Nothin' to Lose" book:

Mr. G. WHIZ ( a.k.a. Mr. GEE WHIZ ) : No. 1 Song / Carry On Alone (1974)

Mr. G. WHIZ - No. 1 Song / Carry On Alone(1973 - 1974 details)
