I Met Ace Frehley.

Post by realrocker » Wed Nov 07, 2018 10:58 pm

Today, I met Ace at his show in Pensacola. By far the most spectacular performance I have ever seen. After the show, I asked Ace, “So why is it called Fractured Mirror”?, “what’s the backstory”? And Ace replies: “ I have no clue” ‘ “Sometimes you write a song, and ya just come up with a title that sticks”

Lies.

We know the answer to that already, courtesy of Deuce Frehley.

What was the show like? Did he do any of the rarities he did on the Kruise? Turnout looked pretty horrible just a few days before.

I'm probably way off but I always wondered if Ace maybe heard "She's gone" by Black Sabbath and it influenced him with Fractured mirror?probably not but never know

Very cool. Congratulations! Great picture. I live in Georgia and was actually thinking about going to this show, but decided it was just too far to drive on week night.

I'm jealous. Even though I thought his performance on the Kruise was awful, I'd still like to see him live once and yell at him during the meet n greet cuz his hearing is practically as gone as Paul's voice.

First Ace show. I was hoping he'd play Snow Blind, and sure enough he did. Also played 2000 Man which was pretty cool.
