Without going into anymore grizzled details, KISS has been a huge part of my life, Joe’s life and subsequently, our friendship. So, today Joe and I are going to hash out five albums that were important to us as proud members of the KISS Army.
Rachel Eckroth is an American singer-songwriter and keyboardist who primarily works within the genre of Jazz. In addition to being an accomplished solo artist, she has worked with the likes of KT Tunstall, Chris Botti and is currently the keyboardist for Rufus Wainwright
Nick Oliveri is one of the most hard-rocking artists out there today. As a bass player, he has been a part of legendary bands Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, and Mondo Generator. The Desert Rock, Stoner Rock, and Metal scenes have been heavily shaped by his work with these seminal bands.
Ricky Warwick is an Irish Hard Rock musician, songwriter and a veteran of the scene. Perhaps best known as the front person of The Almighty, he has also been a member of groups such as Thin Lizzy, Black Star Riders and The Fighting Hearts.
It’s a pleasure to have Tommy Thayer with us today. We talk about his origins in music, what inspired him growing up, his days with Black N’ Blue, his time in KISS, potential new music, and the real scoop on Psycho Circus.
As a drummer myself, I always love having the chance to speak with other drummers, and Mark Schulman is one of the best there is. Having worked as a gun for hire, Mark has played with artists such as Pink, Foreigner, Simple Minds, Billy Idol and more.
