Ace Frehley - Jam Thursday at 7pm
My Take
Ok, I'm going to start with the artist I am most looking forward to seeing at this year's jam. Ace Frehley was the first guitarist I idolized as a kid. I listened to Kiss Alive II countless times in my youth and I would spend hours looking at the concert picture on the gatefold of the album. If you were anywhere around me when Kiss played the jam in 2011, you know how much I loved Kiss. ("I just heard Kiss at Moondance Jam!!") But something was missing that night. There was no Ace Frehley. This show will complete for me my wish to see Kiss at Moondance. Hearing Shock Me on the jam stage is going to be amazing. No I don't count Tommy Thayer's version at Jam 2011. I saw Ace's solo show 10 years ago here in KC (as well as seeing him with Kiss a couple times when they reunited in the mid-90's). He is a legendary guitarist and I absolutely can't wait to see him play, especially Shock Me. I have been able to air guitar that solo since I was 5 years old! His set is heavy on Kiss songs and mixes in his solo stuff as well. You may remember when all 4 Kiss members released solo albums on the same day in 1978. Ace's album was the best-selling of all 4 members. The reason - he is the most talented. To me, it is not even close!

Songs I can't wait to hear:
Shock Me!!! - nothing like that solo
New York Groove - the best song off any of the Kiss solo albums
Rocket Ride - loved that song off Kiss Alive II (the studio side)
The music brought me to Moondance Jam. The people bring me back.

I just remembered that the first concert review I ever wrote was for Ace Frehley in 2008 in Kansas City at the Voodoo Lounge. I wrote it for classicrockrevisited.com. It is gone from that site and I can't find my copy of it or I would post it here. Wow - that takes me back! Now I have to find it!!!
