PhotoHunt #26 - Space

 
Canada
Today’s theme is “Space”, and what better usage I can give to it than paying homage to my rock hero, ‘Space’ Ace Frehley! He’s a former member of Kiss, and used to wear makeup that would characterize him as a man coming from space. Just a year ago, I went to see him and his band play in Toronto, and it was a fantastic experience (and a dream come true for me, as I even got to shake hands with him not once but several times during and after the concert!).
 
I remember I left the place with my spirit filled with good heavy rock music (and also that I was absolutely deaf for two full days). Ah, to be young again if only for an evening, a cold evening in March of 2008…

El tema de hoy es “Espacio”, y qué mejor uso le puedo dar que el de rendir tributo a mi héroe del rock, ‘Space’ Ace Frehley! Es el primer guitarrista líder de Kiss, que lucía maquillaje en su cara que lo caracterizaba como un hombre venido del espacio. Hace justamente un año, fui a verlo tocar con su banda en Toronto, y fue una experiencia fantástica (y un sueño hecho realidad para mí, porque hasta tuve la chance de estrechar su mano no una sino muchas veces durante y después del concierto!).
 
Recuerdo que me fui del lugar con mi espíritu lleno de buen rock pesado (y también que estuve prácticamente sordo por dos días enteros). Ah, lo que es ser joven de nuevo, aunque sea por una noche, una muy fría noche de Marzo de 2008…
