Carol Kaye Gives Gene Simmons a Bass Lesson
Here’s something I never thought I’d see. Studio legend Carol Kaye gave KISS bassist Gene Simmons an impromptu bass lesson at Sunset Sound studios in Hollywood, and luckily cameras were rolling to catch it.
The clip is an outtake from the 2012 documentary Sample This. After showing off a few licks, Simmons points out a particular passage he wants to learn, and Kaye obliges.
“I’m teaching him how to play bass… isn’t that funny?” Kaye laughs.
We think so.
