Bill Baker is back with another update to his Ace Frehley Archives website.
 
First i wanted to let you all know that the layout for my book, "Ace Frehley - The Ultimate Fan Scrapbook" is finally finished! Hooray! After all these years! Now it goes to the printer and by the time you read this, it will have been delivered and I await my proofs!
 
I have updated the Fractured Mirror media pages with 15 new videos. Covering all the years of the worlds only Ace Frehley tribute band. Heaps of cool Ace/Kiss songs featured in there.
 
My review from the 22nd Annual NY Kiss Expo is up. The day was a lot of fun as i got a chance to catch up with some old friends as well as making some new ones. I was there to promote my upcoming scrapbook as well as selling my new 2 disc Fractured Mirror DVD set, which is still available to purchase! Check my review out of the day along with a handful of photos i took.

I'm a journalist for the Belgian TV News RTBF. I made an interview of Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer at the Graspop Metal Meeting
(28/06/08) just before the show. Here is a copy of the subject which was broadcasted the next day. You can see it on this web page (sorry, it's a
bit long...)  or on the French Kiss Army website (www.diamnoir.free.fr)

Hope it will please you
Note that I will use other parts of the interviews in a long TV- documentary dedicated to the death of CD. It will be broadcasted on RTBF during the month of october '08.

Wow, Paris was a blast, brilliant time at the Meet & Greet, brilliant concert and brilliant time catching up with people from the KISSin' UK forum (thanks for wearing the t-shirts!). A Meet & Greet report will be up on here later this week, in the mean time here are some photos.







It's been a long time coming. but KISS have once again destroyed Donington. Too tired to write a report yet but it was a fantastic night, here's a few highlights:-

- Paul mention coming back for a full tour next year.....
- Pauls throat croacked a bit at the start but got better (much better)
- Tommy got a fantastic response from the crowd for his solo
- No set list surprises
- Bloody brilliant night!!!

Off 2 bed........

Concert Live, the instant live CD specialists in the UK, are currently working with KISS on their KISS Alive 35 European tour, creating limited edition CD's of 10 of their gigs. What exactly does that mean? Well you'll be able to pay for and collect a live copy of the show on CD on the night of the show itself! How cool is that - this includes both Donington and Paris for those going. You may remember KISS doing something similar in the US a few years back, and the quality of them was pretty good, so this is definitely a welcome addition to the European tour.

The dates being recorded are follows:

 To celebrate Kiss’s 35th anniversary tour, Classic Rock’s July edition has been printed with a series of completely different limited edition
covers. Four separate covers have been produced exclusively for the US market.  Readers can take their pick from individual cover photos of Gene
Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer or Eric Singer!

However, for the rest of us, Classic Rock’s cover features all the members of Kiss in a group shot. To buy alternative Kiss covers, go to www.myfavouritemagazines.com and search for Classic Rock.

 Some months ago, I showed the first 1/6 scale replica of KISS costumes with one of Paul Stanley. Now I have finished the whole collection from the 2nd album of KISS from 1974, HOTTER THAN HELL. The band used 18 different costumes. Some are joining with this mail. The rest is on my site
www.limitedtoysdesign.com  You click on “KISS 12” figures” thumbnail, then on cover lp of Hotter Than Hell and you can choose the member you want. You’ll find photos of front and back views.  I shall add information below each pictures next week.
