Bass Cover #136: KISS - Domino

Simply one of the best songs on “Revenge” album and arguably also one of the best Gene's songs ever. I just love it. What else can I say? The bass part is simple yet groovy!

Bass Cover #130: GENE SIMMONS - Radioactive
covers · 07. February 2022
This is easily my favorite KISS solo album of all four... and “Radioactive” is the most KISS-like song there :) The bass has been recorded by Neil Jason and even though it wasn't Gene's playing this part is very much in his style. Amazing part! He played a completely different one during “The Return of Kiss” tour in 1979 which was an obvious step since the live version of “Radioactive” was a lot faster and harder.

Bass Cover #125: KISS - Within

It won't be a popular opinion among the KISS fans but for me “Psycho Circus” is Gene's album. I mean the album was quite ok but Paul's songs here were... how could I put it... too Paul-ish? :) Dunno, but there were no real surprises on Paul's side of “Psycho Circus” - just some good tracks, 100% Stanley style. On the other hand, Gene's material for this album seemed a bit more mature and special to me. It's like Paul's song were the bread and Gene's songs appeared to be some nice...

Bass Cover #118: PETER CRISS - Don't You Let Me Down
covers · 02. September 2021
The very first self-titled solo album of Peter Criss released in 1978 (together with the first solo albums from Paul, Gene and Ace) was... hm... was nice, I guess :) I think it's one of those albums most people would either love or hate but I'd say I was somewhere in between. I mean it wasn't KISS by any means and the hardcore rock fans were clearly disappointed by this album and somehow disillusioned about Peter being an important creative force behind the band. Still, I kind of liked the...

Bass Cover #113: KISS - Great Expectations
covers · 05. July 2021
Arguably the oddest song on the KISS classic album “Destroyer”... and I love it. I've no doubt that it's rather a Bob Ezrin's song than a KISS song but who cares? Were you offended when KISS played it with a real children's choir in Sydney during their “Kiss Symphony” performance? I wasn't. In fact, I was rather thrilled. And it has a nice bass line. Really, just listen to it! Pure Gene with his melody-first approach I love so much! It's a real pleasure to play it.

Bass Cover #105: KISS - Rock And Roll All Nite
covers · 05. April 2021
Some would say it's an obvious choice but you know what... Sometimes you stop listening to a song just because you've heard it way too many times, and it slowly becomes a habit to exclude it from your playlists because come on, it's freaking everywhere + on every freaking compilation! And then suddenly you realize that you haven't listened to this song for like 10 years already and you miss it terribly! Get it? If so, you do understand what “Rock And Roll All Nite” is for me now :) A...

Bass Cover #98: KISS - Rise To It
covers · 01. February 2021
Yes, I do have a jaw harp (“Maultrommel” in German which means “mouth drum”) hand-made by a Ukrainian craftsman and I've always dreamed of using it for a cover :) I mean this bluesy intro played by Bruce Kulick has been born to be covered with various exotic music instruments... I guess... Anyway, I've done what I could. Obviously, any jaw harp can play only one note and mine is in D, so I had to break the intro into 4 parts and change the pitch on 3 of them with software. Of course,...

The KISS Army can think anything about “The Elder” now but back in 1981, it was a disaster that nearly destroyed KISS. Which is kind of ironic since now the old KISS fans would give their favorite woolen blankets for a chance to see the band experimenting and doing something artistic and brave... Anyway, I've listened to this album around 1990 for the first time and was in love with it ever since.

And once again a KISS cover on this channel, this time a song called “Take Me” from the “Rock And Roll Over” album released in 1976! Great and powerful song, quite rarely played live though.

Another KISS song on this channel and it's the opening track from the band's second album named “Hotter Than Hell”. Nice middle-tempo song with Paul Stanley on vocals. The album itself is probably the worst KISS album in terms of recording quality, but the songs were f*cking great, still :)
