Whitesnake's Joel Hoekstra, Kiss’s Bruce Kulick, Sepultura’s Andreas
Kisser and more jam The POLICE's 'Synchronicity II' for COVID-19
We’re always happy to watch a new quarantine jam video, especially
when it’s for a good cause. The latest in that category is Guitars
Against COVID-19, the brainchild of electric guitar player Gabe
Treiyer, who has performed with Gene Loves Jezebel and Toto vocalist
Bobby Kimball, among others.
Together with with fellow guitarist David Palau, bassist Pablo
Motyczak and drummer Gary O’Toole, Trieyer lays down a cover of the
Police’s 1983 song, "Synchronicity II".
Helping out the quartet is a host of rock shredders, including Monte
Pittman (Madonna, Prong), Bruce Kulick (Kiss, Grand Funk Railroad),
Sepultura’s Andreas Kisser and, turning in a characteristically
insane solo, Whitesnake’s Joel Hoesktra.
What’s more, the jam serves as a fundraiser for the Red Cross.

Watch first video from Chris Jericho's KISS cover band KUARANTINE From
Chris Jericho has joined forces with
TRIXTER bassist P.J. Farley, guitarist Joe McGinness and drummer
Kent Slucher to form a 1980s KISS cover band called
KUARANTINE. The band's debut video, for
the song "No, No, No", which originally appeared on KISS's 1987
album "Crazy Nights", can be seen below.
Jericho said in a statement: "When Kent & Joe approached me to sing
on a few 80s KISS songs, I jumped at the chance, as it's my favorite
era of my favorite band. Once we brought in PJ, not only did we have
a world-class band with years of touring experience, we also had
four guys with one common bond: to stay creative and to do something
special for all music fans during this pandemic. 'No, No, No' is the
perfect debut release for
KUARANTINE, as not only is it a crushing,
FUN rock n roll tune, but it's guaranteed to satisfy and put a smile
on your face...whether you want one or not!"
In addition to his world-renowned wrestling career, first with World
Wrestling Entertainment and now with All Elite Wrestling (AEW),
Jericho is the lead singer of the internationally successful rock
band FOZZY, which will release its new album this fall.
To connect with all those fans who are quarantined and staying safe
at home during the pandemic, Jericho recently launched "Saturday
Night Special". Every Saturday night, Chris has been going live on
YouTube to chat with over 150,000 fans
each week and answer questions, tell stories and even sing songs.
The shows have also featured chats with special guests including
Kevin Smith, FOZZY and Hurricane Helms. This Saturday, May 16
starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, tune in to watch Chris and his
KUARANTINE bandmates Kent, Joe and P.J., along with special guest
Bruce Kulick, former KISS guitarist, discuss their new project.
For KUARANTINE, Jericho has surrounded himself with a group of
top-notch touring musicians. Kent Slucher has been the powerhouse
behind the kit at Luke Bryan's shows for the past 12 years, from
small clubs to headlining stadiums and amphitheaters. Joe McGinness
is a rising country singer/guitarist, who has shared the stage with
artists such as OLD DOMINION, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE and GRANGER
SMITH, and is also a member of
KLASSIK '78, a digital tribute to '70s
KISS. Bassist P.J. Farley rose to fame in the New Jersey-based
gold-selling rock band TRIXTER, which toured with KISS, POISON,
SCORPIONS and more in the '90s and has released two albums since
reuniting in 2008.
KUARANTINE has emerged to entertain listeners with their versions of
KISS rarities and some good ol' fashioned rock music during these
unparalleled times. Look for more from KUARANTINE to follow soon.

ACE FREHLEY Begins Work On New Album Of Original Material; 'Origins
Vol. 2' Pushed Back To Fall From
During an appearance on yesterday's (Monday, April 27) episode of
SiriusXM's "Trunk Nation", original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley
revealed that he has been using the coronavirus downtime to work on
"new material for a studio record." He explained: "Because of this
virus, everything has been pushed back," he said. "The release of my
'Origins Vol. 2' [the sequel to his
2016 collection of cover songs that
inspired him] has been pushed back to the fall. I don't wanna be too
idle, so I decided to start recording my next studio record. What
According to Ace, "Origins Vol. 2" was "done months ago" but there
is no concrete release date yet for the effort.
"We're talking about the end of the summer," he said. "We might put
out a single earlier than that — during the summer. We're talking
about probably not till September. But that can change. Don't quote
me or anything. First it was the summer, then it was the end of the
summer. Last I heard it was September. Everybody's worried about
their health. Health comes first, because without your health,
you've got nothing."
It was previously reported that "Origins Vol. 2" would feature guest
appearances by Lita Ford (on THE ROLLING STONES' "Jumpin' Jack
Flash"), CHEAP TRICK's Robin Zander (on HUMBLE PIE's "30 Days In The
Hole", former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick (on Jimi Hendrix's "Manic
Depression", ROB ZOMBIE's John 5 (on BEATLES' "I'm Down" and CREAM's
Last year, Frehley told
The Weekender that "Origins Vol. 2" will
once again feature a LED ZEPPELIN tune, "Good Times Bad Times". He
also revealed that he wanted to lay down the vocals for "30 Days In
The Hole" himself, but that he "just couldn't cut it, vocally,
because [Steve] Marriott's just too good of a goddamn singer. I just
couldn't do justice to his vocals," he explained. "But I remembered
that I had bumped into Robin Zander years ago at a meet-and-greet
and he had mentioned to me that he'd like to sing on one of my
upcoming records, so I remembered that and gave him a call. And he
killed it as well. He sounds like a young Marriott.".
