Kiss Army Colombia: hi matt thanks for your time.
Matt Starr: My pleasure.

KAC: Tell us about your career as a musician
MS: I started playing drums at 12. In my early 20's I started singing &; made a few records.  Most recently Ive gotten back to drumming & I love it!

I have had the pleasure of playing with members
of Guns & Roses, Kevin Dubrow (Quiet Riot), Beautiful Creatures & others. I also
produce, my latest record was Hotel Diablo's debut "The Return to Psycho, California" which I produced
along with Gilby Clarke.

KAC: what was your inspiration to be a musician?
MS: When I was 8 years old I would  listen to KISS, Cheap Trick & Aerosmith records
and I wanted to be part of the music I was hearing & the world they created.
It's the only thing I was passionate about....until I discovered girls.


KAC: How long have you know Ace Frehley?
MS: My first show with Ace was July 11 in New York City.  It's been a lot of fun &
I'm looking forward to the future.

KAC: we know you're the new drummer for Ace Frehley, and started working with him?
MS: When I heard Scot Coogan had left the band I called a friend of mine who had
played with Anthony Esposito & he put us in touch with each other. A week later
I flew to New York to audition.  A few weeks later I got a call from Anthony
telling me I got the gig!

KAC: you think about ace as a musician and as a person?
MS: Ace has been a pleasure to play with. He's been very good to me.  He
has inspired generations of bands & musicians and he's got some killer
snakeskin shoes!

KAC: could you give us some preview of what will be the show of Ace Frehley?
MS: We play music from Ace's solo LPs including the '78 LP & Anomaly & we also play
lots of KISS.

KAC: you like (Kiss)?
MS: Love KISS. I saw them in 1979 on the Dynasty tour.

KAC: you have a favorite song?
MS: Rocket Ride, Deuce & Sister (from Anomaly).


KAC: have solo projects?
MS: I am finishing up a record of solo material that I'm very excited about.  It
will be released later this year.  I had lots of help from T-bone Andersson & Jorgen Calsson from Planet of the Abts & Gov't Mule.  Watch www.mattstarrmusic.com for updates!

KAC: Matt, thank you very much for your time, you have some palabaras for fans of
