The Reverend of the "Rock n' Roll Breakfast Show", which airs on Victoria, British Columbia, Canada's CFUV 101.9 FM radio station, recently conducted an interview with legendary KISS guitarist Ace Frehley. Ace spoke candidly about the songwriting on his new solo album, "Anomaly", how he approaches recording his solos, his sobriety, his upcoming tour, the "Gene Simmons Roast", and the possibility of releasing rarities from his personal collection.
