LOVE GUN COVER
KISS was one of the first rock bands I ever listened to and I can proudly say that I’m a lifelong fan, or member of the KISS army, as the fans like to call themselves. The band’s stage show and Ace Frehley’s guitar solos fueled my desire to become an electric lead guitarist as an 11-year-old and I still consider KISS to be one of my major influences.
“Love Gun” is one of my favorite KISS songs. It was originally released in 1977 on the album with the same name, and has been a staple in KISS setlists since then. As a huge fan of Michael Jackson and producer Quincy Jones, I wanted to use “The Way You Make Me Feel” as the foundation for this cover, imagining what the song could’ve sounded like, if it came out in 1987, ten years later.

Update: Rocky's Performance
BAROQUE & ROLL
I can thank Yngwie Malmsteen for helping me take my guitar playing to the next level. I discovered his music as a teenager, when I fell off my bike at the age of 13 and couldn’t play guitar for a week. My brother recommended that I check out Yngwie Malmsteen and I’m thankful to this day that I did. Hearing songs like “Black Star” and “Far Beyond The Sun” completely blew me away, thanks to his incredible technique and neoclassical sound. “Baroque & Roll,” which was released in 2002 on the “Attack!!” album, captures both the melodic and the virtuoso essence of Yngwie Malmsteen. I was first introduced to this song while watching the G3 Live in Denver DVD. It instantly became one of my favorite songs, and I can’t think of a better pick for a humble tribute to The Maestro himself.
