Meeting Ace and my new tattoo.
Mike Sanchez on 06/22/2007
First I just want to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Gene, Paul, Brian, Deb and the crew at the KISS CoffeeHouse and of course the Spaceman himself, Mr Ace Frehley, for a \"Once in a lifetime expriance\" (for me anyway!) making the 1st anniversary a day to remember.
Got in line somewhere around 10am with my wife, Barb, and 2 sons, Joey (10) and JR (4). You couldn\'t ask for better weather to spend a day standing in line to meet someone who to me was \"Larger than Life\" growing up.
Standing in line all day, with people from all over the country and world was great. Talked to alot of different people, but we all were there in Myrtle Beach on this day, for the same reason, our LOVE of KISS and Ace.
Waiting my turn to get my 78 solo album signed, I had the same feeling inside of the day I met Gene. I paused and in a matter of seconds, all the concerts, favorite KISS songs, and memoribilla flashed through my mind. I stepped up and all I could say to my HERO, was \"Thank you\", and that was BEFORE he signed my album. Being that you could only get 1 item signed, I just wanted to show Ace something that I got done to show my appreciation of him and the \"Hottest Band in the World\", my 2nd of 4 KISS tattoos. So I hopped up on the counter and showed him my Ace tattoo. He looked at it and said \"Wow, that\'s great.\" grabbed his silver Sharpie, and signed my leg above him! I was in outter space! (Pun intented)
Thanks again to everyone at the KISS Coffehouse for a great day!
