Ace Frehley Live In Agoura Hills!!!

On sunday januari 29th we saw Ace Frehley live in Agoura Hills,California!!!
We came directly after our KISS Landmark Tour with Peter Criss earlier that afternoon in Los Angeles.
We had to drive for a half hour before we arrived at the Canyon Club, located nearby a shopping erea. We had dinner-table-tickets, so for the first time we would see a show in a seat, that's new for us! Also we saw a lot of familiar faces coming to see Ace, they've did the Landmark Tour with Peter also with us.
When the doors went open we got in and we were lead to our table, but before we checked the menu, we first had to check out Ace's merchandise booth. They sold a copple cool T-shirts, aswell signed CD's, posters & photo's. We bought 2 T-shirts, 1 with the Orgins album cover and 1 with a image of Ace with and without make-up.

It was a bit tight at the dinner tabels, so we were glad we had our dinner finished before more and more people came in. Before Ace hit the stage there were 2 special guests, the first one Liquid Circus wasn't our thing at all, but the second one was Enuff Z'Nuff and we saw them last year on the KISS Kruise VI and really liked them. So we enjoyed their show tonight too.

Around 9 PM it was time for Ace Frehley and we were ready! They started with Parasite and here's our video...

With Scott Cougan on drums, Chris Wise on bass and Richie Scarlett on guitar Ace has put a great band behind him. Seeing them live tonight brings us back to the 3 shows we saw in Amsterdam, Zoetermeer & Bochum in 2015!
We had good seats and a great view on the stage. I was Lucky enough to catch 2 Ace guitarpicks!

We loved the show and it was great to hear Emerald & Bring It On Home from his latest album, but had hoped for more songs from his solo albums. Of course New York Groove with lighting bold guitar and Shock Me with Ace's smoking guitar solo were played. Also it was a special experience to see a Ace Frehley dinner-show, seated at a table while the band performs so close to us. The band sounded great and Ace still kicks ass!
We had a awesome time seeing Ace live again and his show was a perfect ending of this incredible sunny sunday in Los Angeles were we had the oppertunity to see Peter Criss & Ace Frehley on the same day!
Here's a selection of our photo's from the show, enjoy...

Our Visit @ Rock & Brews!

While we were in Los Angeles for our Peter Criss Meet & Greet Experience, we also visited Rock & Brews in El Segundo!
Rock & Brews is an American restaurant chain, co-founded by Gene Simmons & Paul Stanley in 2012, this location was the first one they've opened. So we had to check this place out!

The Rock & Brews in El Segundo had a big eatery inside aswell a terrace. On the walls and ceilings you would find KISS designs as flags, posters aswell from other bands. They had some cool big KISS wine bottes on display.
So we had to taste their famous burgers, so we ordered the Gastropub burger and it tasted so good!
It was great to finally been able to visited Rock & Brews, we've enjoyed it and we also would like to thank the staff who gave us some cool Rock & Brews guitarpicks!
Here's a selection of our photo's, enjoy...

Our Bruce Kulick Meet & Greet Experience!!!

During our stay in Los Angeles for our Peter Criss Meet & Greet Experience, we also went to the LA KISS Expo. There we had our Meet & Greet with Bruce Kulick!
Bruce was one of the special guests and we looked forward to see him again, since it's been more than 4 years ago the last time we've meet him.
When he saw us he recognize us right away and said to his wife Lisa, that we were his biggest fans from The Netherlands! He was happy to see us!
So first we took some photo's with him and also with Lisa...

And our photo's with them turned out great!

We spend quite some time with Bruce and talked about all kind off things, about a new album in the future, if he's coming over to Europe soon (he hope so) and more. It's always a pleasure to chat with him and it was great to finally meet Lisa too!

Around 3 PM Bruce did a Q&A, one of things he said that he was working on some new material (with Lisa on a copple of tracks) He answered questions from fans about his career with KISS and Union, also he would loved to be on the KISS Kruise, but he had to be asked first...
Later that day Bruce did perform with the tribute band Priss and it was great to see him in action again! We had a great time to see him perform live! He's still a amazing guitarplayer and we hope to see him in Europe in the near future.
Here are a selection of some photo's we took, enjoy...

Our Peter Criss Meet & Greet Experience!!!

When we heard the news. last november, that the legendary Catman Peter Criss would be the special guest at the LA KISS Expo this month, we knew we had to be there!

We bought our tickets at once and booked our flights, the only thing we have to do is wait till it's time to travel to Los Angeles.

We arrived in LA on Thursday januari 26th and as soon we picked up our rental car we started to explore the city, from Hollywood to Beverly Hills, from El Segundo to the Sunset Strip. We love Los Angeles!
On Friday it was time to finaly meet the original KISS drummer @ the Raleigh Studio's, where the Hotter Than Hell album cover was shoot!
We arrived around 2 PM at the studio's, after checked-in and received our laminates, we went into the Chaplin theather and waited for Peter Criss to arrive. Shortly after 2 PM Peter came in with his wife Gigi and a hugh applause started for him by the fans!
Peter was overwelmed by all this and we couldn't believe the Catman was in the building. Now it was time for the Q&A and Peter had so much cool stories to tell from back in the days and we love to hear them all. Also a special movie was been screened with all the highlights in Peter's carriere and there was also a section were famous drummers congrats him on how much influence Peter's drumming had on them as they were kids.
We had a great time during this special event!

After a small break it was time for the fans to meet Peter and around 4 PM it was our turn! First we got a special LA KISS Expo event poster, signed by Peter!
Then we entered the room and as soon Peter saw us he welcomed us and he said several times how much he appreciated it that we want to meet him, especially when he heard that we live in The Netherlands! He gave my lovely wife and me a big, warm, sincere hug and he kept huging us! I gave him a little present and he loved it and would keep it to his lucky charms.
Peter was so relaxed and took all the time for us, we spoke about his music and what it ment to us to finally meet him.

We brought some cool items with us to get signed by Peter, first we let our Wedding license sign and he was gratefull to do this on such a important document and looked who else had signed it! Then it was time to get our copy of his solo picture disc album form 1978 signed, finally we've our set of signed solo picture disc's from each KISS member complete now!
Also Peter signed our Let Me Rock You album, the first KISS album, the Criss special edition EP and our Alive! Peter Criss figure.

During signing all the items for us he and Gigi gave answers to our questions and when they heard we would see him on sunday for the LA KISS Landmark Tour they said you'll love it. Slowly our meet & greet came to a end, Peter found it so great that we came from The Netherlands, he couldn't believe it that we did that for him!

What can we say about meeting Peter? Nothing but good stuff to say about him and his wife Gigi. Both great people and so nice. Peter is a total sweetheart! A dream come true for us to finally meet him!!!

Here's a selection of our photo's, enjoy...

Our LA KISS Landmark Tour With Peter Criss!

When we decided to do the Platinum VIP Meet & Greet with Peter Criss in Los Angeles, we also went for the LA KISS Landmark Tour with Peter on sunday januari 29th.
We arrived around 10 AM at the Raleigh Studio's and were really excited about the tour, we didn't know what to expect.
We got a good seat in the bus, 4th row and all we had to do now is wait till the Catman arrives!
Around 11:45 Peter and Gigi arrived and took their seats in the bus.
Peter was sitting at right front side of the bus. We left the Raliegh Studio's pretty much right on time and were headed to our first stop.

Our first stop was the former site of the Aquarius Theatre where KISS filmed In Concert for ABC, Peter said that it was such an exciting time for him all of them.

The second stop was the Sunset Sound studio's were Peter did recording some tracks for his solo album from 1978. Peter said that his album was the best of the 4 solo albums. He really enjoyed recording his album then.

Stop #3 was the Guitar Center/Rockwalk shop, were the famous KISS handprints are located, aswell the ones from Peter & Ace Frehley! We all left the bus, including Peter, to see those handprints. Suddenly Peter got on his knees to see if his hands still matched the hands in the ground.

Such a great moment after all those years for him. Fans cheering to Peter and for us it was amazing to be there!

Next we did on that same spot a group photo and that one turned out great!

Then we all got inside to the spot were several KISS items are displayed. Peter couldn't believe it all was there, like his first snare drum & boots! Here's our video...

This stop was one of the highlights!

Our fourth stop was Casablanca Records, were KISS did their first audition in LA and were Neil Bogart signed them to Casablanca!

Stop #5 was the Riot House (Continental Hyatt House) this was the place were he and Ace would both drop TV's out off their hotelrooms at the same time and see who's would land first. Ace painted the walls of the rooms with mustard & ketchup!

Stop #6 was the Tower Records location, famous in KISStory because of picture of he and Paul under the Tower Records sign! Also Neil Bogart paid to have Kiss' billboard in the film Annie Hall. On this exact location we did our second group photo, Peter got up on the platform under the sign just like he did in the past and our photo was shoot and turned out great again! Our second highlight of this tour!

Our 7th stop was the Wiskey A Go Go/The Roxy & the Rainbow Bar & Grill locations, Peter said that back in the day @ the rainbow they had a special room upstairs. You only got up there if you made it and he knew he made it when he finally got in that room!

We had to drive for a little to our next stop and in the meantime Peter told some cool stories like the 3 sold out shows @ the Forum. When we arrived at our 8th stop Century Plaza Hotel it was under construction. So not much to see here but Peter told us that at the showcase for casablanca they shouldn't play as loud as usual, but you can imagine we played louder than usual. On our trip to the next location Peter told some cool stories like about MTV Unplugged, he said on the day of the shoot the crowd went nuts when he & Ace came on stage and he knew for sure it would lead to a reunion very soon. He told us, when the reunion was announced, that he jumped in his bed from excitement when Gene Simmons called him to let him know that the Tiger Stadium show was sold out in 20 minutes!

Next up was stop #9 the A&M Studio's, this is the studio where the original 4 members of KISS recorded their last song together for the last time! That song was Detroit Rock City with the ending of Black Diamond as is seen in the film Detroit Rock City!

Stop #10 was another highlight in our LA KISS Landmark Tour, the KISS Hollywood Star. We all got out and got around the KISS Star and Peter was so proud to have a star on Hollywood Boulevard. On this spot we also got our third group photo!

When we went back to the bus Peter joked about the next stop should be at Gene's house and have us all up for coffee, He said it would be even funnier doing it to Paul Stanley, lol.

Stop #11, our last location, the Gruman's Chinese Theatre, were the premiere of the film Detroit Rock City was. When KISS was looking for a location Peter suggested this theatre. Also it's famous for the photo shoot back in the days.

On our way back to the Raleigh Studion's Peter still told us awesome stories, one of them was about his #3. He said it's always appears in his life and that it was his number. We loved listening to his stories and for us he could go on and on and never stop.

When we arrived at the studio's all fans started singing Beth with Peter and that gave us goosebumps! When we came out of the bus, we gave a big hug to Peter and thanked him and Gigi for this experience. Peter than decided to give everyone who left the bus a hug. You can imagine that it took quite some time to hug every fan. After that we talked a little bit more with Peter, we chatted about the track Wishper, a possible new album and about The Netherlands. It was time for us to finally say goodbye to Peter and one more time we gave him a big long hug and he said we were so sweet to both of us, before he stepped in to the car and waved to us when he droved by.

What can we say about this tour with Peter? It was incredible, amazing, so unique. A one kind experience that we'll never forget. Peter was thankfull and so gratefull to us. Also a big thank you to his wife Gigi, she was the one behind this tour! Both they made our Meet & Greet and LA KISS Landmark Tour unforgettable!
Here's a selection of our photo's, enjoy...

Our KISS-Peter Criss Los Angeles Sightings!

While in Los Angeles for our Meet & Greet and LA KISS Landmark Tour with Peter Criss we also planned to do our own KISS-Peter Criss LA sightings tour!
There are so much KISS & Peter Criss relelated sightings in LA, we knew we had to see as much of them as we could.

Our first sighting was @ the Raliegh Studio's where the album cover of Hotter Than Hell was shoot, it was a big loft with many studio's and also the LA KISS Expo was hold here. About 1 mile from here is the location of the Conway Studio's, here are the latest 2 KISS albums recorded: Sonic Boom & Monster! Next up was the Aquarius Theatre where KISS In Concert was taped for ABC back in the days. Followed by the Sunset Studio's where Peter Criss recorded his solo album from 1978!

One of the highlights was our next sighting; the Guitar Centre/Rockwalk. As every fan knows this is the location of the famous KISS handprints, aswell of the ones of Peter Criss & Ace Frehley. It was so cool to see these for ourselves and I had to try if my hands matched Peter's & Gene's, lol. Inside there are several KISS boots and gear to see, one of them is Peter's first snare drum! Next up was Gruman's Chinese Theatre, famous of the KISS dragon/lion photo shoot from 1976, also there was the premiere of the movie Detroit Rock City. Our next sightings where the former office of Casablanca Records & Filmworks and the shop where Paul Stanley got his tatoo from Lyle Tuttle back in the days.
When we drove further on Sunset Boulevard we came to our next 4 locations; the Viper Room where the KISS Monster Book had his premiere, next the Whiskey A Go Go and the Roxy. It's in this alley of the Roxy where the video has been filmed for Fire & Water, by Ace Frehley & Paul Stanley! The Rainbow Bar & Grill was often visited by Peter and he knew he made it when he finally could get upstairs to the room of the big boys. Our next sighting was the former Playboy building, famous for KISS photo shoot at the rooftop of the building in 1975!

We got very excited driving to our next 2 locations, always wanted these to see for sure! First up; Paul Stanley's home!

A very beautifull house located in the hills with a stunning view!
Another highlight for us on this tour.
You can guess what was coming up next...of course; Gene Simmons home!

I couldn't believe I was there, I got goosebumps all over my body.

After this our tour wasn't over yet, we headed over to the location what once Vincent Price home was, Peter stayed here when he was recording his solo album in '78. Our next stop was the shop who made the current KISS boots! Followed by another highlight of this tour; the KISS Star on Hollywood Boulevard!

Then we drove to the A&M Studio's, this is where the original 4 KISS members recorded their last track together; Detroit Rock City in 1999!
Next location was the Record Plant Studio's, where KISS recorded Creatures Of The Night and Paul his solo album from '78. For our 2 last sightings we had to drive for a little while, through Bevery Hills, we checked out Rodeo Drive and pulled up later to the former building of Village Recording. Here KISS recorded the Hotter Than Hell album! Our last location was the Plaza hotel, where KISS had their showcase for the bosses of Casablanca Records back in the day.

We had such a great time driving on the streets of Los Angeles and visited all those great sightings, it's KISStory!
Here are the photo's of our KISS & Peter Criss LA sightings, enjoy...
