Overview[ edit ] Cover art and title[ edit ] The rights to Ace Frehley 's makeup were not cleared in time for release of the CD, hence the inclusion of a hybrid form of Paul Stanley's "Bandit" design that was briefly used in some early shows and promotional photos. The album title provided inspiration for another Kiss tribute album, Kiss My Ankh. This album contains only songs written by former Kiss guitarist Vinnie Vincent whose make-up design consisted of a golden ankh cross on his face. Composition[ edit ] " Hard Luck Woman " was performed by Kiss themselves with award-winning country singer Garth Brooks who had admitted to being a big fan of the band during some interviews on lead vocals. Also, after the song has ended, Gary Cherone sings the introductory guitar lick to " Love Gun ", and Nuno Bettencourt plays the first few notes of " Detroit Rock City ". Yoshiki's piece was initially only going to be included on the Japanese edition of the album, but Simmons liked it so much it was added to the track list of all editions.
