Ace Frehley Joined By Pearl Jam Guitarist In Seattle

Ace Frehley welcomed a special guest, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, on stage during a recent show. The show took place at the Neptune Theater in Seattle and found McCready connecting with his longtime hero. “Ace Frehley came onstage and did it with us at Madison Square Garden a few years ago, which was a total high watermark in my life. When I was 13, I never thought in a million years that I would even talk to him; I’d probably pass out. And here I am playing with him!” he told Rolling Stone. He added: “Ace was their firecracker, their dynamite. He’s what took them over the top with the feel he put into his leads. I really gravitated towards his vibrato. My lead for ‘Alive’ is based on ‘She’, and that’s based on ‘Five To One’ by THE DOORS. I remember we were in Surrey, England. I thought about it like, ‘I’m going to approach this like Ace did on ‘She’.’ And I remember the chord pattern that Stone [Gossard] wrote lent it to that kind of a descending pattern. So I kind for went with it. And then I improvised from there.” Copyright(c) 2017 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
