Ace Frehleyâ€™s recording work with â€œCrazyâ€ Joe Renda would provide him with his first outside KISS recording credit in 1981.
Crazy Joe were recording their â€œEugeneâ€ album at North Lake Sound Studios in White Plains, New York. Joe and Ace had co-written a song, â€œEugene,â€ the previous year that was being recorded for the album.
Originally written solely by â€œCrazyâ€ Joe Renda in March 1979, according to copyright documentation, the song would be recorded with Ace co-producing and playing syndrum. What Aceâ€™s musical contribution to the songwriting was is unclear.
Contrary to popular belief, the songâ€™s subject matter is not Gene Simmons.
