WATCH: Ace Frehley, Eric Singer and Bruce Kulick join Gene Simmons at Vault launch

KISS members past and present Ace Frehley, Bruce Kulick and Eric Singer have joined Gene Simmons at an exclusive launch of his $2000-a-piece Vault boxed set at the Capitol Records building in Los Angeles.

Among the dubious pleasures for the super-fans present was 68-year-old Simmons performing one of his earliest compositions, “My Uncle Is A Raft”.

As you can see from the video below, when guitarist Frehley suggests the ensemble performs the Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy For The Devil”, drummer Singer retorts: “You mean sympathy for Gene”.

The rendition starts well enough – but Frehley admits “I don’t know all of the lyrics”. Earlier, the foursome toyed with “Gimme Shelter” and a very early KISS song, “Life In The Woods”.

Simmons and Frehley also played an acoustic version of “2000 Man”, off 1979’s Dynasty.
