During the recent interview with Dave Stutts, original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley has revealed his thoughts on modern rock bands.
He talked about his favorite modern rock bands these days and said:
“There’s nothing new. I heard about that new group Greta Van something. Supposedly they kind of sound like Led Zeppelin, but I haven’t really had the time to check them out. But I still listen to The Rolling Stones and The Who and Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin… those are staples for me.
There’s not a group like The Who out anymore. There’s not a group like Cream out anymore. I don’t know why. There’s no Led Zeppelin anymore. There’s no Jeff Beck. There’s no The Beatles and The Rolling Stones— well, The Stones are still doing it, God bless ’em.”
He also talked about guitar practicing. On whether he still practices playing guitar:
“Never. I’ve been playing guitar since I was 13. I’m 67, so what’s that — 54 years? I don’t really need to practice anymore. I just pick up the guitar when I’m inspired.”
Two weeks ago, he spoke in another interview and explained his thoughts about returning to KISS. He said that “it’s all about money”, click here.
