It was a busy weekend for two members of KISS, as well as their former guitarist.
Gene Simmons was in Chicago on Saturday for another of his Vault box set events, but before that he tossed out the first pitch at Wrigley Field for the Cubs' game against crosstown rivals the Chicago White Sox.
Also on Saturday, not far away in Indianapolis, former guitarist Ace Frehley took part in the KISS Expo and revealed that the title of his new album is Spaceman, which he said was Gene's suggestion. It should be out by the fall.
And on the East Coast on Saturday, Paul Stanley delivered the commencement speech at Wesley College in Dover, Delaware. Stanley said, “Make the most of your life and be proud of what you do. Make sure at the end of the day, you can look at yourselves in the mirror and like who you see. Go forward, have a great life and remember that even on its worst day -- and I’ve had my share -- life is a miracle. Go out and prosper. Make this a better world, you can do it. And, take some time to rock ’n’ roll too.”
