- September 17, 2009 -
Monday night I was invited to see Ace Frehley at the Grammy Museum in downtown Los Angeles. I'd heard about the new museum, and the idea of a drop party (meaning the "day" the record comes out) for Ace obviously made me excited to attend. It was held in the acoustically perfect theatre, and Ace came out to a capacity crowd of 200 very loyal and excited fans. He looked great, and during the interview was funny and reflective talking about his new "Anomaly" CD.
I enjoyed the songs that were introduced and played through the big JBL system, and I especially think that Bob Santelli, the Executive Director and interviewer for the evening, did a great job picking the songs to discuss. Ace and the team that helped create the CD answered questions regarding the music, lyrics and inspirations for the songs.
Afterwards, the fans were able to purchase the CD and meet Ace. I was able to get a great pix of us courtesy of Mark Weiss, who has worked with KISS and most recently Ace's new disc artwork. Mark currently has a gallery of his pix on display at the ANDAZ HOTEL, which was the famous Hyatt House on Sunset.
So that was a fun evening downtown, and I wish Ace the best on his new release. I really enjoyed what I heard, and some stand out tracks for me are FOX ON THE RUN and GENGHIS KHAN.
More news coming on my BK3 release and other events I have attended lately.
All the best,
