FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GREAT WHITE MEMBERS CONTRIBUTE TO
40TH ANNIVERSARY KISS TRIBUTE ALBUM
LARDIE’S ‘BETH’ NO. 1 DOWNLOAD IN JAPAN
A World With Heroes- A 40th Anniversary Tribute Album to KISS, with profits going to cancer care is now available online. The album features 20 monster hits performed by rock’s biggest names. GREAT WHITE’s keyboardist, guitarist and co-producer, Michael Lardie sang and performed all the instruments on the moving ballad “Beth.”
Lardie’s rendition of “Beth” is currently the No. 1 downloaded track off the entire album in Japan.
“Alan Niven (GREAT WHITE former manager and A&R) and project mastermind Mitch Lafon reached out to me and asked me to contribute,” Lardie said. “Mitch picked the song for me. Anything to do with cancer research is a cause I’m behind 100-percent. It’s taken away too many of our loved ones.”
Lafon’s successful PledgeMusic.com campaign raised just under $23,000 for the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence in Hudson, Quebec, resulted in worldwide sales on iTunes. The iTunes release includes re-imagined track listing and eleven bonus tracks.
GREAT WHITE guitarist Mark Kendall and bassist Scott Synder contributed to the album’s “Love Gun” track. Lead singer Terry Ilous sang “Forever.”
