Video footage of original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley's in-store appearance yesterday (Saturday, April 18) at Amoeba Music in Hollywood, California can be viewed below (courtesy of "rockiss").Check out more photos on Ace's MySpace page. As previously reported, Ace Frehley debuted a new solo track, "Pain in the Neck", from his forthcoming CD "Anomaly", during the Amoeba Music meet-and-greet. A store full of fans that turned out to meet the iconic rock guitarist was stunned by the surprise airing, and responded with wild enthusiasm when the song was played. Immediately after the song ended, the store broke out in applause. "Very cool… heavy… reminds me of early KISS," said fan Curtis Feliszak of Burbank. An exact release date for "Anomaly" has not been set, but an announcement is expected in the next two weeks on AceFrehley.com. The CD was reportedly produced and recorded in Westchester County, New York between 2007 and 2009 and was mixed by Marti Frederiksen, who has previously worked with AEROSMITH and DEF LEPPARD, among many others. Ace is planning a world tour in support of the CD and promises many more promotional appearances as the album release gets closer. Frehley last year spent time on the road fronting a band that featured second guitarist Derrek Hawkins, drummer Scot Coogan (ex-BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION) and bassist Anthony Esposito (ex-LYNCH MOB).
