“This is Ace’s first solo album, and Anton Fig is the drummer. On the song Rip It Out, which is the first track on the record, there’s a drum break before the guitar solo, and it’s just incredible.
“Being a KISS fan already, I was way into Peter Criss, but when I heard this, when he goes into the single-note quad fills, I was like, ‘What in the world it that?’ I’d never heard anything like it. Anton does these quad fills between two toms and a kick, and it’s the coolest-sounding thing. I was sitting there going, ‘Fuckin’ A, man. Who is this Anton Fig?’ That’s how I got into him, from this record.
“The groove on Snow Blind is great, and the drumming on Ozone and Fractured Mirror is fantastic. The whole record is cool from front to back.”
