KISS RELATED RECORDINGS since 1997   

  


NEWS UPDATE : February 2021


 
February 25 : Tommy Thayer on his side studio project ....
From : KISS Related Recordings / Jelle Jansen
August 15, 2018 it was listed here that Tommy Thayer was in the studio recordings tracks with Jason Scheff (Chicago) and Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers).
NOTE : Steve Ferrone also played drums on KISS' "Nothing Can Keep Me From You").

On April 11, 2019 Tommy Thayer did some guitar overdubs in Nashville for Chicago's bassist Jason Scheff's solo album "
Here I Am". When the album was released November 2019, Jason Scheff told KRR that Tommy Thayer played guitar on a couple tracks on "Here I Am", but that the album was not the project Tommy Thayer and he have on their own. That is still being worked on and doesn't have a release date yet.

February 2021 Tommy Thayer was interviewed by Andrew Daly of vinylwritermusic.com, in which interview Tommy Thayer mentions the recording sessions with Steve Ferrone.

Tommy Thayer : "My buddy Jason Scheff (Chicago) and I have got together over the last couple years to write, for no other reason than to enjoy the creative process. Fewer artists are releasing records anymore, so it just felt good to write some songs. Jason is multi-talented.
I ended up writing eight things with him on his grand piano and me on acoustic guitar.
We sent the ideas to lyricist Randy Goodrum who finished them. We had no expectations other than to enjoy the process. We went to Scott Frankfurt’s studio in Woodland Hills and cut basic tracks with Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) on drums. Jason and I decided we didn’t want to record with a click track and record naturally like they did in the old days (laughs). Jason sang the tunes one or two takes, done. The tracks were so good we asked Bill Champlin (Chicago) to come in and play Hammond B-3 and sing backup vocals with Jason, and talk about a sound. We went over to Luis Conte’s studio and he added some amazing percussion; cool guy too. Todd Rundgren mixed one so far, and it’s killer. This has been a labor of love and we’re not finished yet. At some point, these songs will see the light of day.

February 15 : KEN SHARP Gets KISSed - KISS tribute single release
From : KISSfaq / Julian Gill
Most KISS fans may only know Ken Sharp's name from the incredible historical works he's contributed to, magazine articles written, and even fanzine contributions dating back decades. He's set a standard for others who have followed in his footsteps. However, the accolades garnered for those accomplishments comprise only a single facet of an artistic gem who continues to forge his musical path at a time painfully challenging for artists with costs of creation rising. His music forms a musical core to his identity, and Ken has released three singles over the past few months that perfectly illustrate a broad foundation of talent: The electric "Liquid Mercury," the subtly biting "Mr. Popularity," and the poignant "Halyx Rising (Lora's Song)." Now, two aspects of Ken's art joyously fuse with his passionate interpretations of two personal favorites from the 1978 KISS albums ...

Ken Sharp: "For friends who know me, I've been a huge KISS fan since I was a kid. Growing up a child of a few divorces, life at home was often charged with unhappiness/turmoil and KISS offered me a window out of some tough times. I've done something wacky but I hope cool too. Today I'm releasing a double-sided single celebrating the 1978 KISS solo albums put out by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons. I've reinvented 'Hold Me, Touch Me,' a beautiful ballad from Paul's solo album as a power pop song ala the Raspberries and have amped up the Beatlesque vibe of Gene's 'Mr. Make Believe.'"
