Continuing our celebration of three decades since 1986 marked a pivotal moment for thrash, the co-founder, singer and guitarist of one of the "Big Four" gives Mark Eglinton a rundown of his most formative records


KISS – Alive!
Eddie Kramer once came up to me and told me something. I don't know if he was pulling my chain or not. He said the picture on the back wasn't even from a KISS concert, it was from a Joan Baez concert or something like that. He also said that that record wasn't really live and that shattered my dreams. For me, as a lead guitar player when I was getting into KISS in high school, I would draw Gene [Simmons]'s face all the time. But when I thought about who I was, I was Ace [Frehley]. I was that guy. I loved those songs like 'Black Diamond', 'Strutter' and 'Parasite'.
