Ace's Covers Contenders - Ep151

3 comments
It's no secret that we like Ace Frehley around here and the new 'Space Invader' album is in constant rotation in the studio and we can't wait to hear more from the original Spaceman. And on that note....

Recently, Ace announced that the wait for his next album won't be as long as us Frehley fans are accustomed to. In fact, Ace is planning an all-covers album for the near future.

This week Aaron and Chris spin their wish list of covers that they think would benefit from an Ace-lift. You'll definitely be surprised by some of their choices that include songs from Budgie, Billy Joel, Deep Purple, Head East, Cheap Trick and much more! We also share YOUR suggestions for songs that Ace should consider for this new album. Enjoy this hour+ of songs that we want to hear covered by the space cowboy!

Ace already did a cover of back on the streets...i have bootlegs of frehley's comets from 1985

Some some nice lateral thinking there, guys. I liked the choice of Budgie track... Reaper of the Glory. Saw them ply it live in 1981 before Nighflight came out and it sounded mighty fine.

Has anyone created, or can someone create a Spotify playlist if the songs mentioned in the show?
That'd be great!
Thanks,
Adam
