July 29, 2019
Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley performed with KINGS OF CHAOS on Friday, July 26 at the 2019 Washington County Fair in West Bend, Wisconsin. The supergroup's lineup also included Sebastian Bach (original voice of SKID ROW),Gilby Clarke (GUNS N' ROSES),Warren DeMartini (RATT),James LoMenzo (WHITE LION, MEGADETH) and Matt Sorum (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES).
Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below (courtesy of YouTube user "Kevin Coombs").
Originally formed by Sorum in 2012 as ROCK 'N' ROLL ALL STARS, KINGS OF CHAOS features a core lineup of members as well as a rotating cast of guest musicians.
KINGS OF CHAOS has recorded just one song so far: a cover of DEEP PURPLE's "Never Before" for the 2012 tribute album "Re-Machined: A Tribute To Deep Purple's 'Machine Head'".
Back in 2014, Bach spoke about Frehley while commenting on KISS's induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and the announcement that the original four members of KISS would not perform at the ceremony.
"As a fan, I understand why people would want to see that," Bach told Ultimate Classic Rock. "But as a [now-51]-year old man that has worked with Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley, I understand why Gene Simmons doesn't work with Ace Frehley."
Bach added cryptically: "Ace has sides to him that maybe the fans don't see. That's all I can say." Sebastian concluded by saying, "I understand why Gene doesn't play with [Ace]."
Bach and Frehley worked together on the track "Know Where You Go" for drummer Anton Fig's solo album "Figments", which came out in 2002. At the time, Bach said that recording with Ace and Anton was "a dream come true and an honor."
