In the Late 70’s Kiss’ Members Would Release 4 Solo Records Under the Band’s Moniker But It Wouldn’t Stop the Inevitable

In 1977 Kiss was on top of the world ruling the hard rock scene, but a year later the band was on a downward trajectory with the band tearing apart at the seams. Drummer Peter Criss and Guitarist Ace Frehley both wanted to quit and pursue solo careers, so the band made a compromise. Each member would release their own solo record under the Kiss moniker but it would prove to be a misstep and a commercial failure. That’s what we discuss in today’s video.

Slash, Duff McKagan and Elton John Appear on New Ozzy Track “Ordinary Man”

This morning Ozzy Osbourne dropped the title track from his upcoming record “Ordinary Man”, which features Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash and Elton John.

Ozzy would say the following on the new comment:

“It all just came together. Slash is a dear friend of mine, as is Elton. When I was writing ‘Ordinary Man,’ it reminded me of an old Elton song and I said to Sharon, ‘I wonder if he would sing on it?’ We asked and lo and behold, he agreed and sings and play piano on the song.”

Producer and guitarist Andrew Watt would recently give an interview to Sirius XM Radio on the show “Volume West” where he’d explain how the collaboration with Elton John and Slash came about saying

“It’s ‘November Rain’-ish, but it’s not. It’s a good song, and [Slash] plays beautifully on it,” Smith enthused. “And then we decided, ‘Well it has a piano. Who’s a really good piano player? I don’t know’… Let’s get the Rocketman!”

Elton John even sings on the track too.

The lyrics for the song are as follows:

I was unprepared for fame
Then everybody knew my name
No more lonely nights it’s all for you
I have traveled many miles
I’ve seen tears and I’ve seen smiles
Just remember that it’s all for you

Don’t forget me as the colors fade
When the lights go down it’s just an empty stage
Ok
Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man

Many times I lost control
They tried to kill my rock n roll
Just remember I’m still here for you

I don’t wanna say goodbye
When I do you’ll be alright
After all I did it all for you

Don’t forget me as the colors fade
When the lights go down it’s just an empty stage
Ok
Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man

Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man

Ozzy’s new album “Ordinary Man” album will come out on Feb. 21. You can pre-order/pre-save the album here.
