Frehley’s Comet, Baby!

Me and Frehley’s Comet – May 12, 2018

The 2018 Indy KISS Expo took place on May 11-12, 2018 and originally, I’d decided not to go even though Ace Frehley was the big guest announcement. There were tons of other guests announced as well, including Frehley’s Comet members Tod Howarth and John Regan. It wasn’t until they announced that Anton Fig was there that I decided to go. Who ever gets a chance to see Anton in person? HA!

Autographed Frehley’s Comet Vinyl

I’ll be honest, I only bought the used vinyl record above last year at the first Rock N Pod Expo in Nashville because Tod & John had both signed it. I never imagined that less than a year later, I’d also end up with Ace’s and Anton’s signature on the only piece of vinyl I own. I guess I owe a shout out to “Chris” (look at the upper left corner of the album cover) for getting rid of this album.

To top off the whole weekend, I got to see (and record video of) the Frehley’s Comet album lineup performing. I really wish the four of them had been given a chance to rehearse prior to showtime but regardless, I got to witness FC history.

All in all, it’s been an excellent couple of weeks for this KISS fan.

Meeting Gene Simmons

Me and Gene Simmons – May 5, 2018

When your podcast interviews one of the guitar players in the Gene Simmons Band and he invites you to come see the show in Ft. Wayne, IN and hang out backstage before the show, what do you say? You say, “HELL YEAH, BUDDY!” and drive 6 hours to the show! Shout out to Ryan Cook for the hookup!
