Ace Frehley records Thin Lizzy cover with Slash

Ace Frehley was joined by Slash in the studio on Saturday to record a Thin Lizzy classic for Frehley’s upcoming all-star covers album.

Slash tweeted: "Had a really fun, live session with @Ace_Frehley last night jamming on a #ThinLizzy tune for his new covers album. Good times!"

Producer Warren Huart tweeted a photo from the session, writing, “Tracked dueling guitar solos with @AceFrehley9 and @Slash at @spitfiremusicgp today #rocknrollhysteria”

For the follow-up to his 2014 effort, “Space Invader”, Frehley originally revealed last summer that the project was in the works and would include guests like Lita Ford, Mike McCready from Pearl Jam.

“The album’s going to be about my influences,” said Frehley. “I’m probably going to do a Rolling Stones song, a Who song, possibly a Led Zeppelin song, maybe a Beatles song. Stuff from bands that I grew up on and greatly influenced me. Those are the songs I’d redo, besides vintage Kiss stuff and a Frehley’s Comet track.”

Frehley’s first new album in five years, “Space Invader” scored the guitarist a US Top 10 debut, entering the Billboard 200 at No. 9 with opening-week sales of 19,000.
