Ace pictures that were TOO cool not to post.

I agree, Ace is just too cool. The one thing KISS has always been brilliant at is creating this kind of mystical aura around the characters. Today we know too much, of course, but back in the 70s when we didn't know anything about the band outside of their performances, imaginations ran wild with this stuff.

Ray Clark, a kid on my block, spent a lot of energy trying to convince us that Gene was a vampire and Ace could fly.

Gene is, and Ace could! Want to fight about it?

I LOVE that top picture, it pretty much says it all!

Great eyewitness testimony of Ace hijinks (Chopper already heard this): A guy I'm working with now worked as a grip on Phantom of the Park. He told me that the producers all gave KISS their own scooters to get themselves around the park.

One day, around about noon, Ace was spotted cruising through the park on his scooter at about 40 mph, drinking champagne through a straw. The description of what happened was communicated nonverbally, using only his hand. "Weave, weave, wobble, wipeout" about sums it up.

Fortunately, no one was injured, especially the human pyramid. Damn acrobats...
