Yep in Argent, especially as Rod Argent and Jim we’re cousins.

Didn't Rodford also play in Argent and Charlie too?

Jim Rodford, bass player, The Kinks, Phoenix (I think?), but I remember him with The Zombies, saw live a while back. RIP

In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

Here's the third album from Ace Frehley during his Megaforce/Atlantic tenure. Now under his solo name, rather than the band name Frehley's Comet, 'Trouble Walkin' may have flown low over the hard rock landscape during 1989, and it's a pity the radar was off-kilter for this effort during that year. As I've said countless times on this website, 1989 was a fantastic year for melodic rock and AOR, so Frehley was in very good company that year, so no fault of his own, if punters had so many choices to listen to. Eddie Kramer was put into the production seat, with Frehley and John Regan providing assistance.

The Songs
Of the songs, 'Hide Your Heart' was co-written by Paul Stanley, Desmond Child and Holly Knight. It had appeared previously on Bonnie Tyler's album of the same name ('Hide Your Heart'). The album's single was 'Do Ya', written by The Move's Jeff Lynne, originally recorded way back when before Lynne's days with E.L.O. The opening brace of tracks such as 'Shot Full Of Rock' and 'Five Card Stud' kick this album along like a stone on the street, the drum work sounds like a million bucks. 'Lost In Limbo' sees the boys operating out of the back-alley,a bit of sleaze in the mix which is always a good thing right? '2 Young 2 Die' features a galloping style of rhythm (once you hear it you'll understand where I'm coming from), while 'Back To School' is another bash-up with gratitious gang-chant vocals to match. The last two tracks offer up somethig different. 'Remember Me' is a bluesy rocker played in a live back-drop, whereas the closer 'Fractured III' is an instrumental.

In Summary
It would be Frehley's last studio album for Megaforce, and it wouldn't be until 2009 that he reappeared with new solo material on the 'Anomaly' album. Kiss fans should get a lot of mileage out of this I reckon. [word count 316]

This is a pretty good cd by Ace. His version of 'Do Ya' is pretty good as well. I like the fact that he thought enough of the song to perform it live in concert. There was a band in 1976 called 'Forest' (they were on RCA ) that did a pretty good version as well.
