“Emerald” (Single) by Ace Frehley

Artist: Ace Frehley
Title: “Emerald”
Label: e1 Entertainment
Release Date: 4/1/2016
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 4/5

A little over a month ago I tossed out some opinion on the first single from Ace Frehley’s upcoming album “Origins V. 1” which you can check out HERE. Thinking back on it I had to say that I enjoyed his take on the Cream classic so it was interesting to find the next legendary band to get some homage on this soon to be released CD being Thin Lizzy. Now before going any further I will be honest and say that I was only ever the most casual of fans of the legendary Irish Rockers and I’m pretty much guilty of only knowing the absolute classics from their repertoire. That being said I did know “Emerald” which is the tune that the Space Ace decided to include on this new album.

Wowza: Guns N Roses Will Perform At The Troubadour Tonight 4/1/2016 – No Joking

This ain’t no April Fool’s Joke my friends because you are not imagining the words in front of you “Guns N Roses Will Perform At The Troubadour Tonight” April 1st, 2016 – Check out the press piece I received a short time ago and the poster. Yeah I’ll come back with some thoughts as well.

Poster - Guns N Roses - Troubadour 2016

The Press Release:
The most anticipated music event of the millennium is set! Guns N’ Roses will play their FIRST live gig of 2016 on the hallowed ground where they started, The Troubadour, TONIGHT, Friday, April 1. Doors at 10pm!

Limited tickets are available for purchase beginning at 12pm PT at Gibson Brands on Sunset (formerly Tower Records) located at the old Tower Records store at 8801 Sunset Blvd. GNR have gone back to retro pricing with tickets at $10, limit one per person. CASH ONLY! Purchasers will receive a non-transferable wrist band at point of sale. While in the queue, fans are invited to start the celebratory day with a trip down memory lane in the venue where Slash used to work (GNR amateur historians also know Axl worked across the street at the now defunct Tower Video), as the old Tower store will be transformed into a complete interactive GNR experience with a memorabilia exhibit curated by Blaine Halvorson, designer of MadeWorn. The exhibit opens at 12pm and will include historic items such as members’ classic attire, original artwork, personal awards and more. Additionally, GNR exclusive merchandiser, Bravado will be onsite with a pop up shop featuring exclusive merchandise to celebrate the April 1 Troubadour appearance.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Wow. Good luck to all who manage to be over there and actually are able to get in. Let’s hope it’s not one of those fake “about the fans” events like we saw the Foo Fighters doing a few months ago with their Irving Plaza appearance. People I know are still complaining about that debacle.
