What a jam packed fun SiriusXM show last night! Ace Frehley was in studio during the first hour. Ace just did a non stop week of press in support of his new CD Space Invader which came out today. He was in great spirits and as usual we had some laughs and shared some stories and had a blast. Despite everything Ace is incredibly positive about everything and is soon going to celebrate 8 years of being sober. Having known him almost 30 I am most proud of him for this. Looks like a big first week on the charts for Ace is coming which will be good to see. Live shows are up in the air at the moment but he did say he hopes to do a few before end of the year.
Slash called in from the road and talked Aerosmith, raising kids, his next album and more. Always good talking with him also. His album is out next month and I’ll be hosting a show with him at The Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood FL 8/29. Also will be hosting Deep Purple there 8/31. Please note I will be selling and signing books at both shows but AFTER the concerts inside the casino at the Hard Rock Cafe. Neither show has an opening act. Slash on at 8 sharp, Purple at 7. So come have a beer and grab a book if you want after the shows inside the casino at the cafe at around 10:15P after Slash and 9P after Purple. Vol 1 & 2 will be available for purchase.
Finally had Mark from Accept and Doro in studio, and Wolf from Accept on the phone in the final hour. New Accept out today also and sounds great! A few US shows this year, more next year for them. All of these interviews available On Demand with the SiriusXM app. You must be a subscriber to listen.
