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.
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
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.
