PRESS RELEASE: 2014 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame member ACE FREHLEY today has debuted a brand new music video for his cover of Free’s 1970 hit “Fire and Water” featuring none other than KISS frontman PAUL STANLEY. The video is being premiered exclusively through VEVO. “It was great working with Paul again and all the years we’ve spent apart doing other projects seemed to vanish once we hit the stage!,” says Frehley.
Steve Vai (probably my biggest influence and my one-time jam-buddy, brag brag brag) has announced a special 25h Anniversary reissue of Passion & Warfare. It features a new disc called Modern Primitive, and Steve will also undertake an extensive tour where he will play the whole record start-to-finish. Yes, even “Ballerina 12/24” and hopefully some freaky arrangements of “Alien Water Kiss” and “Love Secrets.” Read the full press release below, plus info about the third Vai Academy event.
Hey Steve, one request: the jazzy little solo section of “The Animal” pretty much changed the way I play guitar, but you always play improvised stuff instead of the original solo when I hear you play it live. How about returning to that classic finger-pretzelling, life-changing solo for ‘ol Petie, eh? Pleeeeease? (By the way, check out these Fascinating Facts About Steve Vai’s Passion & Warfare).
