Los Angeles, CA – An incredible line-up of world-class musicians and vocalists gathered together, under the helm of Grammy award-winning producers Bob Kulick and Bruce Bouillet, to recreate 11 classics from the catalog of one of music’s greatest, best-loved bands, the icons of theatrical shock rock, the mighty KISS! Originally released as Spin The Bottle in 2004, the resulting album has received a complete makeover this year and will be reissued October 19 with all new artwork. Now titled, Pure Fire – The Ultimate KISS Tribute, the album features unique combinations of A-list performers including former KISS member Bruce Kulick plus some of the bands biggest friends and fans including Tommy Shaw (Styx), Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead), Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Steve Lukather (Toto), Chris Jericho (Fozzy), Buzz Osbourne (The Melvins), Dug Pinnick (King’s X), C.C. DeVille (Poison) and so many more!

“After being friends with KISS, knowing them for years, playing on Paul’s solo record, it was my pleasure to play on this tribute CD. And also working with Bob Kulick was great fun. I thought it came out great. It ROCKS!” – Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge/ Beck, Bogert, Appice)
“I really liked the new arrangement they had and we screamed through it pretty fast. Wild combinations of players and singers, and in the end a very new twist to some KISS classics.” – Steve Lukather (Toto)
“KISS is and forever will be the most exciting band in the land!” – Kip Winger (Winger)
“What fun it is to do anything with Bob. Giving KISS some love. I tried to do Gene proud. We’re all parasites, baby!!” – Dug Pinnick (King’s X)
“I was thrilled to play on this record, especially with Mark Slaughter and Ryan Roxie, with whom I have played before. The song ‘Cold Gin’ was special for me because of one morning back in 1990 when I was awoken by a phone call from Gene Simmons inviting me to come up on stage to play a song with them that night. It was indeed a great moment for me!” – Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne)
“Such an honor to be included then and now, in this list of immensely talented musicians on this KISS tribute. Put your KISS face on and turn it up. Enjoy!!!” – Robin McAuley. ( MSG )
“Some seriously great performances by an insane bunch! Being involved on many of the assorted songs, I had the pleasure of enjoying all the different folks and the cool and varied interpretations they all were bringing to the table.” – David Glen Eisley (Giuffria/Dirty White Boy)
Jason Becker is the guitarist/composer who has had ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) for over 27 years. He is making a new album. In addition to his new music, Jason hopes to demonstrate through this project how support to meet one’s physical needs can mean that even massive physical limitations don’t necessarily equal creative limitation.
Jason Becker started making albums when he was 17 years old; Cacophony, his band with Marty Friedman (Megadeth), and his solo albums have been extremely influential in the guitar, metal and rock music world. He joined David Lee Roth’s band when he was 20 and they put out A Little Ain’t Enough, Dave’s fourth solo album, which went Gold.
Jason was diagnosed with ALS at the same time he joined Dave’s band. He was able to finish recording A Little Ain’t Enough, even though the disease was making his body weak. He was limping and his hands were falling off the guitar.
Jason had to leave Dave’s band before the tour. He moved back home to Richmond, CA and started composing music on the computer, thanks to his producer friends, Mike Bemesderfer and Dan Alvarez. Despite his paralysis and inability to play guitar anymore, he released his album Perspective on Warner Bros. Records.
Jason had to get a tracheostomy in 1997. Thanks to his family and friends, he is doing pretty well, and he continues to write and put out music, using a communication system invented by his father. Some people with ALS use this system now.
In 2012, his life story was the subject of an award-winning documentary called “Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet.” He was also on the cover of that year’s July issue of Guitar Player magazine, being called “the greatest shredder ever.” He also works with Kiesel/Carvin Guitars on a line of Jason Becker guitars, and with Seymour Duncan on his “Perpetual Burn” pickup.
Jason has new pieces of music and unreleased guitar recordings to put out. He has many guest guitar players sitting in as well. He will be working again with his dear friend and brilliant, Emmy winning producer Dan Alvarez (Perspective and Collection). Jason says Dan “gets” his music, and always knows what he is going for, while adding his own great ideas.
There are some cool perks available to contributors, such as signed CDs, exclusive shirts and posters, one-of-a-kind guitars, and more. Jason hopes to release this album in Summer 2017. Of course, that depends on his health and energy level, which have been good (knock on wood), and the availability of other guest musicians. He would also like to make videos for a couple of the tunes, if possible.
He thinks this album is some of his best and most emotional music. He wants people to feel and experience it very soon. Jason also hopes to demonstrate through this project how support to meet one’s physical needs can mean that even massive physical limitations don’t necessarily equal creative limitation.
Guest performers on the project include Joe Satriani, Steve Lukather, Eric Johnson, Neal Schon and Richie Kotzen — just to name a small handful of the many who’ve lent their talents to Becker’s new compositions.
“The soulful fury of this talented three-piece, the Travis Larson Band, washes the stink of the recording industry’s lame offerings out into the gutters while unleashing it’s unique brand of instrumental rock fusion (think of a musical stew mixing a thick brown Rush gravy with big hearty chunks of Steve Morse and a dash of Jeff Beck).”
With four records and a full-length performance DVD, the award winning Travis Larson Band is firmly rooted as one of instrumental music’s premiere acts, having worked on record with Steve Lukather (Toto), Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck), Vinx (Sting, Herbie Hancock), Hugh Syme (Rush, Aerosmith) and having shared live billing with Ted Nugent, Los Lobos, Elvin Bishop, Steve Morse (Deep Purple, Kansas), and Bill Bruford (King Crimson), to name a few. Comprised of Travis Larson (guitar), Jennifer Young (bass), and Dale Moon (drums), TLB’s complicated phrasing, impossible timing, and seamless flow cause some to suspect that the band must surely operate from only one, albeit enormous, brain.
Aided by endorsement relationships with Ernie Ball/MusicMan, Electro-Voice, Digitech, Randall, Ampeg, Gretsch, and Sabian this tiny band with the big sound has found its way into the festivals, theaters, clubs and music stores across the nation, not to mention the traveling 53-foot tractor-trailer truck tours and music industry events. Well known for their live performances the Travis Larson Band delivers full throttle rock fusion that soars with originality and mercilessly hooks an audience like a freshly sharpened gaff through the unsuspecting brain of an Arctic Cod.
What ever the Travis Larson Band may lack in predictable synthetic beats and squeaky prepubescent voices, they more than make up for in ass-whoopin’, soul-boosting, brain-bursting guitar music and good ol’ fashioned talent.
