Former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley’s latest album “Spaceman” was released on October 19, 2018.
On that album, Ace Frehley worked with KISS bassist Gene Simmons. And they wrote two songs called “Without You I’m Nothing” and “Your Wish Is My Command”.
During the recent interview with Forbes, Ace Frehley remembered how they wrote new songs with Gene Simmons. He said that ‘Gene kinda felt guilty saying ‘no’.
Here’s the statement:
“Getting Gene on the record was a brilliant idea. He kinda felt guilty saying ‘no.’ He showed up on my doorstep and within three or four hours we had two songs done.”
During the session that produced “Without You I’m Nothing” and “Your Wish Is My Command,” Frehley felt happy to flex some of his technical skills.
Once we figured out the songs with acoustic guitars, I said, ‘Let’s lay down a demo, you play bass, I’ll play electric guitar.’” Frehley says. “I’m running the Pro Tools, setting up the mic, doing this and that. One of the first things Gene said to me once I started engineering was, ‘How’d you learn to do all this stuff Ace?’
I said, “Unlike you, sometimes I used to stay after the recording session and ask, ‘What do these buttons do?’”
