    Using a very tasty Les Paul (of which I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be a genuine 1959 one.) as a demonstration tool.

    Showcasing that he sure knows his way around a fretboard

    Exceptionally cool that he gives credit where it's due.

    The Hunter
    , by Albert King.

    They call me the hunter, that's my name
    A pretty woman like you, is my only game
    I bought me a love gun, just the other day
    And I aim to aim it your way
    Ain't no use to hide, ain't no use to run
    'Cause I've got you in the sights of my love gun

    And name checking the Blues Magoos? This man is a man whose ego is clearly in check, and recognizes the world of people out there. Was never my favorite member of KISS back in the day, but is so much now.

    I like how he wrote "Hard Luck Woman" specifically as a Rod Stewart type song

    I like the solo in Love Gun--anyone know if it's actually ace playing it, or was it a studio guitarist? I heard that happened from time to time due to Ace's substance abuse issues.

    According to wiki, "Brandy" by Looking Glass also served as an inspiration--cool!

    Awesome interview!! Thanks for sharing.

    Paul is a genuinely super nice guy... I've been a big fan for over 40 years. Really appreciate him doing this.

    I've never been a Kiss fan, but Paul has always seemed like a decent dude.

    In Further interviews he also name checks the Hollies as their song "Sandi" was his inspiration behind "Shandy"

    He's also quick to admit that the song "Hotter than hell" is Free's "Alright now" but with different Lyrics and a different riff.

    Gene, for his part admitted that he got the Riff off "Deuce" off of the Rolling Stones' "B!tch." Which is probably why Ace Frehley said that at his audition, the first song they taught him was "Deuce" and how he loved it from the first note. Ace is a self confessed Stones superfan and recognized the intention of the song right away. "Ah so you want this to be a Rolling Stones song, I'm completely down with that!"
