Huge congrats to Ace Frehley on his Top 10 debut on the national Top 20o on Billboard! Like all records though in this day and age the proof will be where it is 4 weeks from now. Does it have staying power and continued support? Or did all the fans just buy it week one and then it’s quickly forgotten (sadly the case with most rock and metal albums). If he does videos and tours that will certainly help but that is all TBD.
Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley has made history with his new album, Space Invader , which debuted at number nine on the Top 200 Chart this week. The LP scores the highest charting position of ANY KISS solo album ever, and marks Frehley’s first return to the Top 10 since KISS’s 1998 Pyscho Circus reunion album. The album has also sold better in its first week than KISS’ recently released Kiss 40 album. Internationally, Space Invader has debuted number one on the Independent Chart and number sixteen on the Top 200 Chart in Canada, Top 40 in Switzerland and Sweden, and hit a historic benchmark for the first time ever as a solo artist in Germany. Space Invader , Frehley’s first studio album in five years, has also received praise from critics.

Before you get down to moshing in the privacy of your own home, do some serious partying in either Los Angeles or New York when Anthrax’s Chile On Hell live DVD is premieres on Monday, September 15th, the day before its general release. And, not only will attendees be among the first to see the thrash-masters performing an extended set that features all the fan-favorites in front of a sold-out, rabid crowd in Santiago, Chile, but each event will feature a special Q&A – Scott Ian and Chile On Hell ‘s producer Jay Rustin at the L.A. screening, and Anthrax’s Frank Bello at New York’s. The premiere is free to fans who pre-order the Chile On Hell Blu-ray or DVD from either Vintage Vinyl in Fords, NJ, Looney Tunes in West Babylon, NY, or Amoeba Records in Los Angeles, CA. Each pre-order comes with one wristband that entitles the holder to attend the premiere.
I’ve often spoken about the over touring so many bands are doing these days. Playing so much their draw starts to decrease because people get tired of seeing them. It’s a by product of the fact that bands are not making money from selling music sadly. But we now have the over saturation of artists being in way too many bands. Again, same problem behind it.

He made the room light up so vividly.
