Under The Gun

According to Eric, "I had nothing to do with the song after the initial rhythm thing. What happened was Paul and I, I think at rehearsal or on a day off, went in the studio. I just started playing a double-bass beat, I heard some accents in my head. I said: 'Paul, why don't you play these three chords...' I think it's like D - A - D - A - D - A... We started fooling around with that and we liked it. And then we didn't go anywhere else with it. Paul remembered that part and wrote 'Under The Gun'" (KISS Neon Glow #1, 1992). Eric would get some of his most noticeable backing vocals on this recording, hollering out "Fire!" during the bridge. Jean Beauvoir plays the machine-gun bass on the recording.
