Rockpages.gr: In 1982 you auditioned for the replacement of Ace Frehley in KISS. Describe to us the whole experience and do you remember which songs did you play together?

Doug Aldrich: I remember meeting the drummer (ed.note: Eric Carr) and he invited me to come down the rehearsals and meet Paul (Stanley) and Gene (Simmons). I was a kid…I was only 17-18 years old. I was nervous because no one had ever seen them without their make-up…they were really protective about the whole thing. I remember being afraid of looking them at their faces when they were speaking to me (laughs)! I don’t even remember what they really looked like because I didn’t have the guts to look them at the face (laughs)! But…they were very nice. When I walked into the room, Paul and Gene were singing together in their mics. They were working on “Creatures of the Night”…I remember at a point where Gene came up to me and said: “Can you play this solo on a major scale”? I said…“major scale…what’s that”? He goes: “do, re, mi…”…I said: “Ah, OK…I know that” (laughs)! I will never forget that…then we played “Detroit Rock City”, “Firehouse” and “Black Diamond”. You know…these were the three songs that we played together and to tell you the truth I didn’t even know about “Black Diamond”. I loved the song! I was more of a Zeppelin fan…but “Black Diamond” at the time was their…let’s say…“Free Bird” or their “Stairway to Heaven”. Paul and Gene loved that song. Let’s see what else I remember…oh yeah…I remember walking into the rehearsal room and it was huge! It was like an arena! It was their stage and Marshall amps stacked up to the roof! They called me back a couple of days later and they asked me to learn “Calling Dr. Love” and something else…so I came back for a second time and I was really nervous because I thought that maybe I had a chance. You must remember that I have never done an audition in my life up to that point. In the end, it didn’t work out because I was too young. I was really a kid and they were already superstars.
