Taylor Hawkins & Paul Stanley Join Forces From
Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has a new solo EP out titled "Kota",
and on one of the songs features the vocal stylings of KISS frontman
Paul Stanley. Together the two iconic rockers are featured on the
song, "Bob Quit His Job."
"It's about my old neighbor," Hawkins told the O.C. Register. "At
the very end of it, too, that's Paul Stanley from KISS. We took some
of his live banter from KISS shows off of the Internet and stuck it
in there. I asked him, like, 'Hey, I put your banter in the song to
make it sound like a live KISS album or something, can I do that?'
He was like, 'Hell yeah, go for it."

NOTE : the info on the backstageauction website isn't fully right,
so below is the info I got from Hari Kari bass-player Charisse
Texeira-Palma some years ago.
During 1988 - 1989 Eric Carr managed and was the executive producer
The first demo (1988) was recorded at the Record Plant, New York
City, and was produced and engineered by Dave Spitz.
In 1989 Eric Carr re-engineered the demo with a couple of
different songs and with Charisse singing.
Eric Carr funded both of the demo's but was only available to
engineer the 2nd due to touring. He also employed Mark Weiss as
their photographer, and Eric created a kit to promote the band. Hari
Kari was never signed to a recording contract.

October 14 : Sky Of Forever's album
released today, ft. Bruce Kulick From
Former Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick appears on
SKY OF FOREVER’s debut album.
Bruce’s exquisite guitar playing can be heard on the album opener,
SKY OF FOREVER is a Helsinki-based melodic
hard rock group, featuring musicians from Stratovarius and Tracedawn.
Their music is influenced by 1980`s hard rock, melodic metal and the
masters of film music – the orchestrations are made by Risto
Kupiainen, the conductor of Helsinki City Theatre. The group is led
by singer and songwriter Lauri Hannola. Their self-titled debut
album is released worldwide via Mighty Music today.
“Carry On” is an uplifting and soulful tune with some 1980’s feeling
to it. Sky Of Forever is able to paint the most beautiful melodies
after opening the song with a speedball guitar riff. Legendary KISS
guitarist Bruce Kulick makes a guest appearance on the song by
playing fiery guitar solos. “We wanted to get to the heart of the
song, when thinking about the possible guest artist. We were
rotating some names of the best rock guitarists and finally decided
to contact Bruce’s management. Bruce liked the song and decided to
jump in.” “Bruce recorded his solo parts in Los Angeles with the
same guitar gear he used back in the KISS days.” “It’s truly an
honor to have Mr. Bruce Kulick on Carry On.”, says singer/songwriter
