AceFrehley600 While original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley will be releasing his new album, Space Invader, on August 19th, the six stringer is already discussing his next project, which will be covers album.

Frehley reveals that he already has guest musicians such as Lita Ford, Slash and Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready lined up, but there that there is someone very special he would like to ask to appear on this CD.

“I was thinking of asking [KISS bassist/vocalist] Gene [Simmons] to play bass on one track, and I’m not going to say which one. That’ll be a surprise,” Ace told VH1 Radio Network‘s Dave Basner.

When asked by VH1 Radio Network if he thinks Gene would accept his invitation, Frehley said, “I think he’d consider it. I don’t know if he’d do it. Maybe [KISS guitarist/vocalist] Paul [Stanley] won’t let him. Who knows?”

Ace’s version of Steve Miller’s, The Joker, was recently released online and can be heard here.

    Damn, slow down Dana, you’re posting too fast for me, I can’t keep up! LOL!
    Of course Gene will accept the invitation, (if the price is right!) AND if Paul lets him, LOL! Just my opinions & suggestions, shouldn’t cover very well known songs (The Joker) for example, I would love to hear Ace do “Cold Gin”, “Parasite”, “Strange Ways”, songs he wrote but never sang before, in the studio. And some other songs that I’m just too busy to think of at this moment! Later… 🙂

      I’d rather have Peter on it. I’m confused why Ace seems to blow Peter off in regards to recording. After all the stupid comments Gene keeps making in the press Id keep his mean ass out of it.

    ‘Maybe Paul won’t let him’. That’s a good one. I had read a month back that Gene had to agreed to appear on his covers album.

      It also seems to me that Ace really wants back in Kiss. Which he would makes millions in a short period of time.

    I wonder if Metallica, JP, Maiden, and others are at home sitting on their couches with nothing to do… LOL. Just Kidding Dana! 🙂

    Lmao….”Maybe Paul wont let him”…..Ace knows that Paul IS the puppet master. Give credit to Ace, after all of that ugly mudslinging that Gene has done to Ace….Ace just keeps it classy and pushes on……Joe in The Cuse
