August 14 : HOTTER THAN HOTTER THAN HELL - KISS Tribute album
From : KISSfaq / / Kiss Related Recordings
From HYDROGYN guitarist/producer Jeff Westlake comes a different kind of tribute. Hotter Than Hotter Than Hell is a tribute to KISS and more, specifically the Hotter Than Hell album that was originally released in 1974.
“As a kid I loved that album but always had a hard time listening to it because of its sound," says Westlake. "I knew I like the songs a lot and it was not until Alive that I heard the way that some of those songs were intended to sound.” Westlake ultimately decided to gather some of his musician friends that fit the project to re-do it. “I called up Boggsy, Carlisle, Anderson and Cardilino to study the record and then re-do it. What we did was stay as close to the original and in no way modernize guitar tones etc; we just wanted it to sound better. The final part was to recreate the cover but with attractive women in the KISS make-up and in the same pose. I am very happy with the final product in every way.”

August 11 : Paul Stanley musical guest on new Foo Fighters album
From :
After considerable teasing, Foo Fighters have announced a release date for their eighth album. ‘Sonic Highways’ will be released on Nov. 10 worldwide.

The eight songs on ‘Sonic Highways’ were recorded in eight cities: Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. At each city, a different musical guest stopped by to help them record — including Paul Stanley, Rick Nielsen and Nancy Wilson — and the individual musical flavor of each city is reflected in the finished track. A brief taste of one of the songs can be heard at their website.

“This album is instantly recognizable as a Foo Fighters record,” Dave Grohl said in a press release. “But there’s something deeper and more musical to it. I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our ‘sound.’”

Although the record won’t be out until November, HBO will premiere a series called ‘Sonic Highways,’ which documents the making of the album, on Friday, Oct. 17 at 11:00PM Eastern. Grohl, who also directed the series, has described it as “a love letter to the history of American music.”

Fans can pre-order ‘Sonic Highway’ at their website, with the vinyl version available with nine covers, one for each of the cities and another of the composite shot.

‘Sonic Highways’ Track Listing

1. ‘Something From Nothing’
2. ‘The Feast and the Famine’
3. ‘Congregation’
4. ‘What Did I Do?’ / ‘God As My Witness’
5. ‘Outside’
6. ‘In the Clear’
7. ‘Subterranean’
8. ‘I Am a River’.

August 8 : KISSfaq interview : Into the Cathedral with Marty Cohen ..
From : /
Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley has yet to officially unleash his latest solo album, "Space Invader", but he is already thinking ahead to his next effort — a collection of covers and remixes. He tells : "That will be out next year. I get suggestions, I come up with ideas, and I ask friends and associates about which songs to do. The songs are already written, so it is faster and easier for me to make that record. I will get guest stars like Lita Ford, Mike McCready from PEARL JAM, Slash. It is an easier record to make since I don't have much to do. The big stress is coming up with new guitar solos and vocals lines and melodies on new songs."

July 12 : KISSfaq interview : Into the Cathedral with Marty Cohen ..
From :
There are few people would can say that they played with both Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley prior to KISS. Steve Coronel is one. Marty Cohen the other.
Marty was kind enough to give the KISSSFAQ an interview to discuss his history with Gene and Paul, and correct a few things that appeared on the FAQ website over the years.
His perspective continues to add to the picture of Gene and Paul coming together in a partnership that had lasted more than four decades...
