Anthrax drummer leads isolation jam of KISS classic

Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante is sharing an isolation jam cover of the 1976 KISS classic, “Mr. Speed.”

Benante is joined by guitarist John 5, Trixter bassist P.J. Farley, and Kuarantine guitarist Joe McGinness for the track from the band’s fifth studio record.

"This has always been a favorite from the Great 'Rock and Roll Over' album,” says Benante. “According to Paul: It's was written about having all the lines and know-how to pick up a woman quickly!

"Here is a fun version of a KLASSIK song ! Thanks to John 5, PJ and Joe #paulstanley #genesimmons #petercriss #acefrehley #kissband #70skiss #kissalive #kissarmy @joe_mcginness_official @kissonline @pjfarley @Kuarantine_Official @john5official @kissnyc @knightsinsatanservice #trixter @officialraband thanks to @dlevanchuk for the awesome edit"

Like its predecessor, “Destroyer”, “Rock And Roll Over” reached No. 11 on the US Billboard 200; led by the US Top 20 singles “Hard Luck Woman” and “Calling Dr. Love”, the project went on to sell more than a million copies in the country.
