October 31 : video of Chris Davis cover of " Baby Driver "
From: Chris Davis
Check the video of " Baby Driver' by Country Rocker Chris Davis.
The song appears on the album "Got To Foo - A Sagafoo Tribute To Kiss".
Released October 31, 2008 at the "Foo Army" record label.
Other outstanding tracks on this release are one Man multi-instrumentalist Double Virgo's KISS cover of "Secretly Cruel", which new arrangement sounds that interesting that you might think like it's original is taken from "Love Gun" or "Gene Simmons 1978 solo album", instead of the 1985 "Asylum" album; Sagofoo's cover of the Gene Simmons demo "Reputation" and a very interesting version of "Strange Ways" by Jim Tucker which sounds like it's translated to a early 70's Pink Floyd 'marihuana song'  ....

October 30 : SIMMONS RECORDS To Be Relaunched
I am closing in on two, separate offers to relaunch my SIMMONS RECORDS label. When I've decided which offer I'll accept, you'll read it here first. For those of you in bands who have demos (demonstration tapes), please don't send em.
I've received literally thousands upon thousands of demos over the years. 
There simply isn't enough time in the world to wade through it all.
The history of SIMMONS RECORDS dates back to Bob Buziak former head of RCA RECORDS. I signed HOUSE OF LORDS ( a name I trademarked and let Greg Giuffria use for his band), SILENT RAGE, a California rock band and GYPSY ROSE a Canadian rock band RCA wanted to release through my label.
Music was going through a revolution and Grunge and Seattle snuffed out most of the rock bands of the day. I went on record then and stand by what I said: Though the bands coming out of Seattle were certainly valid, the tone and self destructive nature of it was not. Seattle would be the death of most rock bands. And, it was. What followed was the saddest period in Rock I can remember.
Gone were rock shows. Gone were groupies. Gone was the Culture of Rock.
The bands that ignored Seattle and simply went on doing what they did best: Rock!!!....survived. And got bigger.
Seattle bands? Almost all are gone.
Back in the early 90's, I was also managing LIZA MINNELLI's recording career and got her a deal at Epic Records. Her record was produced by the Pet Shop Boys.
For the most part, I lost interest in fighting an uphill battle with my label. Then by early 2000, I met and liked the nice folks at Sanctuary and over there, I re-launched the SIMMONS RECORDS label for two releases: my solo album, "Asshole" and a Canadian one-man-band named BAG. Eventually, Sanctuary went under and that forced us to shut our doors yet again.
This time, we have two majors who want to do this the right way. And, we will.
As soon as more news comes, you'll see it here first.

October 29 : Bruce Kulick " BK3" Studio blog update
From: Bruce Kulick / (studioblog, day 32)
Finally got some lead guitar work done on the song that Nick Simmons sang. Guitar solo's need to be added later on when getting a tune finished. This way you compliment the vocals in a better fashion. Knowing this track had Nick made me think of some different guitars. I brought out the KISS army in a way... my old LP JR from Revenge tour and the COS disc, my white ESP that is featured on Revenge and KISSOLOGY III, my ESP Signature Prototype guitar that is on COS and the UNION CD's, and my 1979 Ibanez PS 10 Paul Stanley Iceman model that I haven't had a chance to record with..

October 22 : Nick Tweed Simmons In Studio With Bruce, blog update
From: Bruce Kulick / (studioblog, day 31)
Very proud to let you all know that Nick, Gene's talented son, wrote some killer lyrics for a track that needed something special. Last night he sang in a studio in Burbank Ca, as he is on a short fall break from college. Jeremy and I were thrilled with his tone and passion, and wait till you all hear his unique voice. Will you be surprised he is Gene's son? Not really, you can hear some of the Demon's dark undertones in his voice. But his take on singing comes from a much bluesier place than you could guess from a 19 year old. Nick loves some serious blues singers like Skip James and artists that came from the deep south.

This makes his approach very unique, and as he keeps developing his musicianship, I feel he his potential is huge. He has teased Jeremy and I with some of the songs he is working on, and they are excellent and sound like no one I have heard. Having his style on a song that could best be described as being a slinky hard rock track that could of been on some of my later KISS discs, or one of the two UNION CD's, made a good track come alive. So the big question of could Nick deliver, has been answered in spades. I can't wait for you all to hear the results.

I will be recording my solos for this song very soon. "Hand of the King" is the title, based on some imagery that Nick has had in his head for quite a while he explained to me last night. Keep watching for more BK 3 posts soon! And of course, a special thanks to Nick Simmons and his friend Justin (who plays in Nick's band), for a productive evening of making great music.

From: Bruce Kulick / (studioblog, day 30)
WOW! Finally two days in a row in the studio. Happy to make some progress, and Jeremy and I knew we had more guitars to do for the song "Ain't Gonna Die" Gene co-wrote and sings. I promise this tune will blow you away! We added a different rhythm guitar much like what Paul and I did for Revenge guitar tracks.

October 12 : PodKISSt # 9 - “One Live KISS” Special !!!
True confession time. Ready? OK. Here goes: How many hours have YOU spent staring at the cover of the “Alive!” album? It sucks you in, just like the album does. 
It’s (arguably) KISS at their finest. Gene stands leering at his bass… making plans for pleasure, pain… or both! Pete’s the cool cat with his sticks in the air, ready to pound out a powerful pulse. Ace wields his axe like some cosmic divining rod, channeling powers known only to space travelers from Jendell. The Demon, the Catman, and the Space Ace… each in his own thoughts… each in his own world. And Paul? He’s in YOUR world. Staring straight at you (or through you), the Starchild embodies all that is Rock and Roll. And it’s been that way for 35 years. Whether he’s dazzling thousands of fans with the Hottest Band in the Land, or reaching for outstretched hands in a packed theater, Paul Stanley remains the greatest frontman in rock history. On October 21st, 2008, fans will have a chance to experience the power and passion of Paul’s “Live to Win” solo tour when the “One Live KISS” DVD hits the shelves. Thanks to the generosity of Universal/New Door,, and, PodKISSt is proud to bring you an EXCLUSIVE interview with Louis Antonelli, director of this exciting new DVD. Louis gives us his up-close and personal account of the creative, collaborative process behind “One Live KISS.” 
Fans of Paul Stanley, take note: This is NOT a PodKISSt to miss! Big big thanks to everyone on the PodKISSt team, and to Paul himself!!! In this 2-part show (don’t forget to download both files!)…!

October 10 : Bruce Kulick " BK3" Studio blog update
From: Bruce Kulick / (studioblog, day 28)
Back in the studio again for BK3. Did a short bass session for the "Ain't Gonna Die"  song (with Gene Simmons) one night last week. Jeremy played the AXE bass we borrowed  from Gene. Massive sound from that guitar! Last night I got a chance to record some  guitars at Stagg Street Studios in Van Nuys. Did some leads for the same song. I  went for a melodic nasty tone, which will remind you all of Revenge era KISS. Used  my Gold Peavey Wolfgang and my Red ESP Vintage Plus.

Had some cool pedals set up, including some from this company called GeekMacDaddy. 
Go visit the site. The creator Jeff has some great sounding pedals. Vox AC 30 and my 
Marshall was in full tilt mode, along with some nifty slide parts on the Wolfgang.

We got some great background vocals done as well for the song. I really can't wait 
for everyone to hear this song. So of course I am happy to be making progress on 
BK3. My goal is to finish recording by the holidays. So I can then release early 
2009. I plan to make some more music next week and will get you all a full report.
