Well here’s something I don’t think anyone seen coming. Wrestler and metal frontman Chris Jericho has teamed up with an interesting array of musicians to form a cover band that will exclusively play covers from the 80’s catalog of KISS. This was during the band’s “no make-up” stage and apparently music for which Jericho has a passion.
Not particularly known as a heyday for the band – KISS really flexed their musical muscle during this time, experimenting with a wide range of sounds. If Jericho has his way – he’s going to bring that era back to the masses.
Take drummer Kent Slucher – who is the drummer for Luke Bryan – add in Trixter guitarists Joe McGinness and PJ Farley and you get Kuarantine – aptly titled as this little gang of KISS fans would have never found the time to converge had it not been for the COVID-19 shelter in place orders.
The band has released their first cover – from the 1987 KISS album Crazy Night’s – it’s NO,NO, NO.
Check it out!
Can’t lie to you – that sounds pretty damn fine.
Given the nature of things – no word on when we might be getting more of this goodness from Kuarantin – hell, some of the members of the band have yet to even meet one another – but hopefully as things slowly get back to normal, we’ll get to hear much more. Stay tuned!
