INTERVIEW AND PICS BY MARKO SYRJALA
Richie Scarlet, nicknamed ”The Emperor of Rock ’n Roll”, is multi-talented musician and producer from New York. The man started his career back in the late 70’s but he’s best known from his long and successful collaboration with former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley. Scarlet has also worked with such names as Sebastian Bach, Mountain, and he’s released several solo albums, including the latest I PLEAD THE FIFTH which came out earlier this year. Scarlet came to Finland in early June with his lovely wife Joann because he was one of the special quests for annual KISS Expo in Helsinki. Later on in the evening Scarlet also performed with Finnish Ace Frehley tribute band Frehley’s Vomit. I met a little tired but very talkative Scarlet the next morning at the hotel and here’s what I got caught on the tape. Read on!
