The 2018 NHL Winter Classic was definitely in a “New York Groove” and not just because the annual outdoor hockey game featured the New York Rangers defeating the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 in overtime.
Ace Frehley was on hand to perform his KISS solo album cover hit of “New York Groove” in the frigid air at Citi Field (Fun fact: “New York Groove” is played when the Mets win at home... considering their 2017 record of 70-92, it didn't get many spins.)
Small clip of Ace doing New York Groove at the Winter Classic!
Frehley sat down with the NHL Network before the game to talk about playing guitar in the chilly elements, which even with gloves had to be a bit difficult in the freezing cold weather.
