An Epic Clash of Musical Generations

My mom is one of the world’s biggest Englebert Humperdinck fans.  “Last Waltz” has been played in the house since…well, I don’t remember.  I often tried to counteract that by blasting something from KISS’ Destroyer album on the stereo in my downstairs bedroom.

The legendary Engelbert Humperdinck spent the day in the studio with Kiss founder Gene Simmons laying down a track for his Duets albums.

Engelbert is nearing completion of the album which features songs with Willie Nelson, Elton John and Smokey Robinson and now Simmons.

Both me and mom are having a hard time dealing with this today.
