It was announced yesterday that Kiss would be participating in a Michael Jackson tribute concert being put on by Global Live Events on October 8 in Cardiff, Wales. Of course, the media were quick to point out the public comments that Gene Simmons made disparaging Jackson's character, some within days of his death.
Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley is eager to let fans know that he's back and feeling better than ever. Ace will release his autobiography, titled No Regrets: A Rock 'N' Roll Memoir, later this year, and recently spoke with The Morton Report's Jaan Uhelszki about the book.
When I talk music, I always bring up Kiss because, pound for pound, they are probably my favorite band of all time. It’s a toss-up between them and Megadeth. But from a lot of people what I hear is, “Oh man, I could just never get into Kiss." I really feel like a lot of people are missing out on the greatness they have to offer.
