Jewels Reality Show has launched a fan-based song-writing project
called “Friends With Painted Faces,” and has enlisted Ron Nevison to
“KISS fans are extremely loyal, so there was certainly no shortage of inspiration, but I knew for this project to sound as good as possible, and to really have the credibility it deserved, I’d need someone with clout, visibility, and immense talent to help me do it right,” said Brunson. “Ron’s resume is unbelievable, he’s worked with everyone from Led Zeppelin to the Rolling Stones to KISS, so I am absolutely thrilled to have him on-board!”
Last November Brunson invited KISS fans everywhere to write in and tell him why they loved the band. He is using this input, along with his own, to craft the first-ever official Tribute Song for a band, inspired by its fans and recorded by the Ultimate Fan.
“I’m anxious to hear the initial demo, but I like the idea enough to go ahead and (tentatively) sign on,” said Nevison. Brunson plans on being in the studio no later than March of this year. More information can be found on Bob’s website, www.bobbrunson.com.
