Former KISS guitar tech Barry Ackom joins us this week to share some incredible KISS Road Stories! Hired on to work for the band during the Alive! tour, Barry would pull double duty doing guitar tech work for both Paul Stanley and Ace Frehley.
His tenure with The Hottest Band in the Land lasted through Alive II around 1978. Barry had a front row seat to the fast ascent of KISS and was a part of numerous landmark moments in the band’s zenith. We barely scratched the surface in this entertaining chat but touch on topics such as the sold out 3 night run at Cobo Hall in 1976, the Anaheim Stadium show, the making of Destroyer, and KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park!
Road Stories With Barry Ackom
Other subjects covered include a hilarious story of a barefoot Ace Frehley in Sweden, Ace getting shocked in Lakeland, Florida, and the subsequent use of wireless gear. Also, Barry shares how his Chicago-area band Lois Lane was almost a farm club for KISS replacement members. It’s an hour-plus of great stories told by a man that witnessed the magic of KISS first-hand.
We hope you enjoy Road Stories with Barry Ackom and SHARE with a friend Merry KISSmas in July!
