KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer recently revealed to Oregon State Daily Barometer Online that the group's original guitarist, Ace Frehley, needed Thayer's assistance in remembering Frehley's signature guitar riffs in preparation for the band's first reunion tour.
"They asked me to help out," Thayer explained. "I really enjoyed it. It was a cool experience. It was kind of bizarre and ironic. That stuff influenced me when I was learning how to play guitar. We both got a kick out of it. Ace gave me props and we both had fun."
Last year at a private concert in Jamaica was the first time Thayer wore white, black and silver on stage with the other members of KISS — his guitar in hand just like in his childhood dreams. "I was a little nervous," he admitted. "When you are in the makeup it puts you in the right state of mind. You become the character... it's kind of fun. It's Halloween all over again." Read more.
