Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ace Frehley has announced Origins Vol. 1, a covers album featuring some of the biggest names in rock and roll, on April 15, 2016 through SPV/Steamhammer in Europe, available as digipak, 2LP and download. Most notably, KISS frontman PAUL STANLEY joins Ace on Free’s hit “Fire and Water.” This collaboration marks the first time that Ace and Paul appear on the same recording since KISS’ 1998 reunion album Psycho Circus. Other guests are none other than Slash trading leads on Thin Lizzy’s classic “Emerald,” Lita Ford singing and playing lead on The Troggs’ staple “Wild Thing,” Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 playing guitar on the KISS song “Parasite” and Jimi Hendrix’ “Spanish Castle Magic,” and Pearl Jam’s Mike McCreedy plays guitar on Ace’s mainstay “Cold Gin.”
