About Ace Frehley

Paul Frehley was born in the Bronx, New York, on April 27, 1951. His interest in music began on his fourteenth birthday when he got a six-string electric guitar. Although he had a burgeoning art career, Frehley dropped that dream in favor of becoming a rock guitarist due to his enthusiasm for the Rolling Stones and after seeing a live show in New York City in 1967 with Cream and The Who. He soon started following Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, and would start playing in local rock groups with the nickname "Ace." In 1973, none of his local projects had made it, and he replied to an ad in the paper for a new, theatrically-styled hard rock group.

He would shortly have his first audition and would be taken on as the lead guitarist for the nascent quartet comprised of singer and rhythm guitarist Paul Stanley, singer and bassist Gene Simmons, and drummer Peter Criss in the band of Kiss. This costumed and face-painted power group would have a deal with Casablanca Records by the end of the year. They would rise to become the world's most recognized hard rock group within five years. In 1980, however, the band had reached its limit. Criss, who had become a close friend of Frehley's, would leave Kiss that year after the band started trying out new styles with little success. Frehley would become ever unhappier in the band, and he would leave the group himself in 1982.

Shortly after his departure from Kiss, Frehley would begin assembling a solo project under the named Frehley's Comet. Frehley's Comet would tour around the New York City circuit until they were picked up my Megaforce Records and released a self-titled first album in 1987. The band then decided to go with the then-popular pop-metal trend, as exemplified by Mötley Crüe, and would release a live EP and two more albums by 1989. This would be the time that Frehley would start to employ his visual art skills again, and would even be featured in an exhibition. The early 'nineties saw some acrimony between Frehley, Stanley and Simmons, but the members of Kiss put their differences aside to come together for a recording for MTV Unplugged in 1995. The recording was so amazing that it inspired the Alive World Tour, the Kiss reunion tour that ran from 1996 to 1997.

Frehley would stick with Kiss to complete the Farewell Tour, again outlasting Peter Criss who exited in 2001. Frehley would continue touring, making a notable stop at Rocklahoma, up to his release of Anomaly on his very own Bronx Born record label in 2009. In 2011 he would release his memoir, No Regrets, which honestly related the ups and downs of his musical career in great detail. 2013 would be a year spent getting to know his fans better, as he would be celebrating his seventh year of sobriety and spent much time at pop culture, sci-fi, and horror conventions.


Previous Hits

As a member of Kiss, Ace Frehley would be part of the group that sold platinum record after platinum record and would play to sold-out audiences from 1975 to 1979. After the Kiss recording for MTV Unplugged, Frehley would continue on with Kiss for the massively successful Alive World Tour and Farewell Tour.


Trivia

Ace Frehley of Kiss was, as well as Eddie Van Halen, one of the biggest reasons kids would pick up the guitar in the 'seventies. When the next generation of big name rockers found their footing in the 'nineties (Dimebag Darrell, Mike McCready, and Kim Thayil, to name a few) nearly all of them cited Frehley as their inspiration.
