I never realized how cheap and amateurish the Destroyer stage was. 😳
Not only that but unless you were in the middle of the arena/hall you’re view would be obstructed by papier-mâché castles & rocks etc. There’s no way people on the far left or right would be able to see Peter! ☹️
That really is a shit angle. Maybe the Destroyer stage isn't as cool as I always picture it?

Until the PA’s got hung entirely from the ceiling (most of the dates on the Dynaty tour) side views would always be blocked by the PA on the ground regardless oh whether there were decorated or not. That was just a thing in the 70’s that if you sat on the side, you didn’t see the drummer.

During what was technically the Rock N Roll over tour in winter 76/77 they got rid of the electricity/lighting towers and the road crew got really lazy with putting up the castle and moonscape tapestries/banners that covered the PA so it made it look cheap. If you look at the Destroyer stage on the opening night in all it’s glory, it looks pretty badass.

Does anyone know who this guy is with Ace and Jeanette? I've seen it captioned Sylvain Sylvain but that's obviously wrong.

The "Destroyer" stage was absolutely fantastic (easily a Rock theater masterpiece of it's time) & if I could plug everyone that missed it into my memories/experience of it directly from my brain, I gladly would. I'd say so far, no videotape or film that I'm aware of does that one all that much or proper justice, but maybe someday something overall better shot will turn-up.

The "LOVE GUN/ALIVE II" stage is my favorite of all-time, but "Destroyer" definitely comes in at a close second.

👍🏻 I really like this one (& I'll entitle it): "The Way We Were" (Los Angeles, Summer 1977).

If I'm correct, the man in the photo (with Ace and Jeanette) is bassist Kenny Aaronson.
(Billy Squier/Billy Idol/HSAS/Derringer).

That Cher with Gene pic looks photoshopped.
It is photoshopped. The original photo is of Gene and a police officer backstage somewhere in Canada on the 1977 Can/Am tour.

This photo was taken in the front of Ace's home in Wilton, CT. Likely around 1979...

The photo in question is creepy on a number of levels. Not the least of which is the sheer size of Ace's bacon bazooka...

With his two “trained” German Shepards that used to terrorize his wife and family, she used to lock herself in the bathroom to hide from them.
