Rock Bottom

Intro: Ace Frehley; Song: Paul Stanley

While the song is credited to both Paul Stanley and Ace Frehley, it is really anything but a collaboration between the two. Instead it is a patchwork, taking an almost "classical" instrumental piece Ace had written and bonding it to the beginning of a song that Paul had written. According to Paul, "The instrumental at the beginning is Ace and I playing. And once again, it was that idea of starting something off soft and then going into something much crunchier" (Box Set liners). This helped make the "Dressed To Kill" album longer with the acoustic introduction adding 1:57 to the song's overall length. This was another Paul song to have some Free influences in it. Sean Delaney claimed to have co-written the Paul part of this song, though this can't be substantiated.
