KISS Related Recordings
Just made a list of all (demo-) songs which possibly will be used

set. This list of Gene Simmons (demo) songs is temporary until the final track list
is revealed !!!!
After years of being in the spotlight with KISS, I've decided it's
time to share another side with you, a more personal one. With The
Vault I've created a 50-year time capsule, a soundtrack to my life,
filled with songs I've written, but never have been able to share
until now. That's 150 songs that I've kept tucked away, waiting for
the right moment, tracks with artists like Bob Dylan, Eddie and Alex
Van Halen, Joe Perry and of course, my bandmates from KISS. As an
obsessive music fan and collector myself, I've packed The Vault with
exclusive mementos created just for The Vault - a new action figure,
an "In Gene We Trust" oversized commemorative coin, a deluxe
160-page book with dozens of unseen photos from my personal
collection and track-by-tack commentary on every song included - and
a one-of-a-kind gift from my very own archive.
With The Vault, I'm inviting you and guest to join me on a
once-in-a-lifetime experience. I will personally hand you your very
own Vault in your area and we'll take a deeper look at the unheard
and unseen side of my legacy.
