KISS 40th Anniversary Tribute Album For Cancer Care

  Source: Mitch Lafon

My name is Mitch Lafon and I live in Senneville - I've put together the following charity project to benefit a local palliative care centre. Using all my contacts from 30 years of a rock reporter - I've put together an impressive list of 'A' list rock stars from around the world to help us locally.

Recently, the KISS 40th Anniversary Tribute album for cancer care welcomed DON DOKKEN and MARK TORNILLO (ACCEPT) to the project.

Don will be covering the '70s KISS classic Cold Gin while Mark will venture into KISS' heavier '90s sound with his cover of Spit from the Revenge album.

Other songs and artists confirmed include:

Kill Devil Hill's Rex Brown & Mark Zavon doing Larger Than Life from Alive II, former L.A. Guns' frontman Chris Van Dahl doing Hard Luck Woman, Canadian metal icons Slaves on Dope doing N.Y.Groove, Detroit Rock City as sung and performed by Guns N' Roses' Bumblefoot, Firehouse's Bill Leverty with special guest appearance by The Killer Dwarfs, Russ Dwarf will handle Deuce, Great White's Terry Ilous covering KISS' power ballad Forever, Doro Pesch offers a special 2013 version of Only You, Honeymoon Suite cover the mid-80s ballad Reason To Live, Black Sheep's Willie Basse will performed I Love It Loud, Little Caesar's Ron Young will cover non-other than Little Caesar (from 1989's Hot In The Shade album) and one-time Gene Simmons records signee Ron Keel will belt out Rock N Roll Hell
