A

ce Did Record With Kiss For the Killers and/or Creatures Albums, Maybe.



February 15, 2018  Mark Strigl


On a recent episode of the 3 Sides of the Coin show, former Kiss producer Michael James Jackson was asked about Ace Frehely’s involvement on both the Killers and the Creatures of the Night albums. He said “Ace did play. I don’t remember; It was along time ago, I don’t remember what he played on. We recorded him in New York.”

When asked if this was for Killers, Creatures of the Night or both? His response was “I honestly don’t remember. It was a very long time ago.”

He is then asked if it is possible that Ace’s guitar playing may be part of the basic rhythm guitar parts on the Creatures Of the Night album to which he responds “yeah, yeah., I remember we recorded him at Electric Lady. I don’t remember whether it was on a track or several tracks for Killers or on Creatures.”

In the 2003 official Kiss book Behind the Mask, Michael James Jackson is quoted as saying Ace was not on the Creatures of the Night record. In the same book, Vinnie Vincent talks about meeting Ace at this time. Could this meeting have taken place in the studio while they were recording Creatures? Ace Frehley, of course, went on to appear on the album cover, in the promotional music video for the track “I Love It Loud” and also did some press for the record. Around this time Ace claims that Kiss was encouraging him to go and do solo records but also to stay on as a member of the band.

Why has Michael James Jackson’s recollection of Ace’s involvement with Kiss at this time in history changed? Again, in the 2003 book, he says Ace was not on the Creatures record and now in 2018 he claims he did record guitar sessions with him for either Killers or Creatures. Could his account had been altered for the “official” Kiss book in 2003 or is he now remembering things differently? Thoughts? Let us known in the comment section below.

This post was written by Mark Strigl

From the official 2003 Kiss authorized book Behind the Mask –  page 350:

Michael James Jackson on the Creatures of the Night album:  Because Ace wasn’t on the record, there were many other guitarists to audition. And there were several who actually played solos on the record. For example, on “I Still Love You,” the guitarist doing the solo is Robben Ford, a hands down tremendous technician. The guys were really blown away with Robben.  Steve Farris, who was in Mr. Mister. played on the solo on “Creatures of the Night.” As I recall, we brought in about eight different guitarists and rejected about six of them…

From page 351:

Vinnie Vincent:  I met Ace once and he seemed like a really nice guy. We got on very well. It was a very short conversation. I don’t think I’ve ever run into Ace again. I think I met him when I first joined the band. He wished me luck and said,”Have fun, good luck” And that’s about it.

Ace aurait probablement joué sur Killers et/ou Creatures of the night

Le producteur de Kiss de l'époque Michael James Jackson est revenu sur ce qu'il avait dit pour le livre "Kiss behind the mask" publié en 2003 lors d'une interview en 2018.
Apparemment, Ace aurait joué sur l'un et/ou l'autre de ces albums. En fait, il se rappelle qu'il a joué mais il ne se rappelle plus sur lequel.
Sa contribution serait uniquement de la guitare rythmique sur ce ou ces albums.

Vinnie se rappelle également avoir croisé Ace au studio à l'époque...

Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de certitude et que l'on ne puisse pas savoir la teneur exacte du travail réalisé !

Ace Frehley to Join Bruce and Bob Kulick at Indiana Kiss Expo


Ultimate Classic Rock


Organizers of the Kiss Expo in Indianapolis have confirmed that the band's former guitarist Ace Frehley will appear as a special guest of brothers Bruce Kulick and Bob Kulick in a live show to close the event.
This will mark only the second time the Bruce & Bob Kulick band have performed, following their appearance on last year’s Kiss Kruise. Their third show is set for the next Kruise.
In addition, all four members of the group that recorded 1987's Frehley's Comet album - Frehley, drummer Anton Fig, bassist John Regan and guitarist / keyboardist / singer Tod Howarth - will make appearances at the Expo.
The expo takes place on May 12-13, with each day closed by a live performance. Frehley will act as special guest on both nights, with the Saturday event also featuring Kiss drummer Eric Singer, Bob Kulick, and the Kulick band’s Brent Fitz and Todd Kerns. Tickets are on sale now.
Saturday's confirmed guests include Singer, Frehley, Bob Kulick, Creatures of the Night and Lick it Up producer Michael James Jackson, Fitz, Kerns, Lydia Criss, Karl Cochran, Robert Fleischman, Roman Fernandez and Bill Starkey. Sunday's roster includes Frehley, Bruce and Bob Kulick, Fig, Regan, Howarth, Brent Fitz , Todd Kerns, Bobby Rock, and Mark Slaughter.
“It’s a challenge to play poolside in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico,” Bruce Kulick told UCR after the brothers' band made its debut appearance in November. He admitted he was nervous. “There’s wind blowing pretty intensely, the floor is always moving, it’s not like your usual indoor arena, you’re on a moving vessel," he recalled. "It’s damp, it’s windy, the elements are kinda weird, but that’s the thrill of it. We toughed it out."
Kulick noted that all the arguments over the set list and the struggle to find rehearsal time. “The reaction has been tremendous," he said. "It couldn't have been a better opportunity to perform those songs -- on that night, on that ship, with that crowd, it’s a gig I’ll never forget. … It meant a lot to both my brother and I, the fact that we pulled it off so well and that it was so well received. I’m not saying that I don’t want it to happen again, but if it never could happen again like that, I’m okay because I did something super special.”

Gene Simmons Came to St. Louis and Charmed Us One-on-One



Posted By Jaime Lees on Mon, Feb 26, 2018 at  8:00 AM


Gene Simmons (right) performing with Kiss co-founder Ace Frehley

Who goes to a Gene Simmons event that costs $2,000 to attend? Are they weird rich guys? Are they mega fans? Are they average rockers just looking for some fun? There was only one way to find out.

Best-known as the flamboyant co-founder and bassist of classic rock mega-machine Kiss, Gene Simmons is also an unstoppable entrepreneur. He will proudly brand and sell any item, once famously licensing and releasing the Kiss Kasket.

His latest moneymaker is the Gene Simmons Vault Experience. Simmons is selling a mega box set that looks like a combination between a safe and a road case. It weighs 40 pounds and it contains hours of unreleased recordings. It also includes a little Simmons action figure and a massive book, among other things.

The event in St. Louis was hosted by Music Record Shop and held in the .ZACK building, where the shop is now located. Instead of taking place at the store, however, the Vault Experience was hosted at the shop's luxury green room/event space, 303.

The day would include an extended town hall-style Q&A, a break for some fragrant Pappy’s Smokehouse barbecue and then an acoustic set where Simmons was joined by Ace Frehley. All throughout the day, Simmons served himself up for private meet-and-greets with fans, autographing their Kiss memorabilia.


These two seemed to genuinely have fun together

Ace Frehley to Join Gene Simmons for Australian Tour




They've certainly had their ups and downs, but it looks like Gene Simmons and his former Kiss bandmate Ace Frehley have enjoyed their recent reunions. In fact, Frehley will join Simmons for a series of upcoming tour dates in Australia.

Those dates, which Simmons announced during a solo Vault Experience show that was captured via the fan-filmed footage you can watch below, follow a spate of appearances with former Kiss members.

Simmons and Frehley ended a 16-year break between stage collaborations last year, and their subsequent reunions have included the first Vault Experience tour date, which also featured Frehley's fellow ex-Kiss vets Bruce Kulick and Eric Singer. The Kulick connection will continue later this year, when Frehley appears with brothers Bruce and Bob at the Indiana Kiss Expo as well as the 2018 Kiss Kruise.


It's all part of what seems to be an era of hatchet-burying for Simmons, whose famously blunt dismissal of some of his former bandmates has taken a recent backseat for recent reunions. In addition to playing with Frehley, Simmons also appeared with former Kiss drummer Peter Criss at a Vault Experience show on March 24; next month, he'll share a Vault appearance bill with ex-Kiss guitarist Vinnie Vincent when the tour comes to Nashville.

For fans who've watched various past and present Kiss members feud over the years, it's encouraging and not a little bit surprising — albeit not as surprising as Simmons' recent decision to join a Canadian cannabis company as their "chief evangelical officer." Although he's always been outspoken about his anti-drug views, Simmons admitted he was "not informed" about the benefits of cannabis, adding, "in the past, I used to dismiss lots of things because of ignorance and arrogance."

JOHN 5 Joined By ACE FREHLEY, NIKKI SIXX, SCOTT IAN At Whisky A Go Go Concert (Video)


April 7, 2018 14 Comments


Former MARILYN MANSON and current ROB ZOMBIE guitarist John 5 was joined by Ace Frehley (KISS), Nikki Sixx (MÖTLEY CRÜE), Scott Ian (ANTHRAX) and Scott's wife Pearl Aday (daughter of actor/musician Meat Loaf) during his concert Friday night (April 6) at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California.

Sixx, Ian and Aday stepped out on stage for the show opener, a cover of the MÖTLEY CRÜE classic "Shout At The Devil", while Frehley came on at the end of the night to play the KISS classics "Parasite" and "Shock Me". Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach, who was originally supposed to sing "Shout At The Devil" with Sixx, Ian and John 5, did not make an appearance at the event. According to John 5, Bach will now join him on stage on April 11 at Discovery Ventura in Ventura, California.

Last year, John 5 — real name: John William Lowery — took partial credit for reuniting Frehley and Gene Simmons at the former KISS guitarist's February 2017 concert in Beverly Hills, California, marking the first time the KISS legends were photographed together since their 2014 induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

John 5 told Seattle Music Insider that he "wanted to be like KISS" when he first started to play guitar. "[I] loved KISS growing up," he said. "Who didn't?" John 5 revealed in a separate interview with Digital Trends that KISS's 1977 classic "Love Gun" was the first album he connected with. "It's got a great cover. I loved it. I was, like, 'Oh my God — these are monsters with guitars!' I was so young then."

John 5 is touring in support of his concert album, "It's Alive!", which came out on January 25. The first live album released by John 5 and THE CREATURES — which includes Ian Ross on bass and Logan Miles Nix on drums — is also the first LP released by John 5 to be made available on vinyl.

John 5 & The Creatures Descend on Whisky A Go Go With Motley Crue, KISS + Anthrax Guest Stars

Alex Kluft
April 7, 2018

Rob Zombie (and former Marilyn Manson) shredder John 5 was with his band The Creatures as they hit the iconic Whisky A Go Go last night (April 6) along with some special guests notoriously known on the Sunset Strip.

John 5 kicked the show off with all his special guest performers who were previously announced, but he kept an Ace in his pocket and saved it for the grand finale. At around 10:30, John 5, Motley Crue legend Nikki Sixx, Anthrax's Scott Ian and his wife, Pearl Aday (daughter of Meatloaf), stepped out from behind a black curtain and under a green light, hitting the stage with a walloping opener in Crue's "Shout at the Devil."

With Motley Crue's history on the Sunset Strip, especially the Whisky A Go Go, and the band going on to become one of the biggest rock bands ever, this was a very rare chance to see Sixx on the stage where it all began over 35 years ago. The night also marked Sixx and Ian's second appearance in Hollywood this week with the Bon Scott tribute show at the Fonda taking place just a few days earlier. Also of note, Ian, known for his Jackson guitars, played a Buckethead model Les Paul and it was interesting seeing two guitarists on the song as Crue famously featured the six-string talent of Mick Mars exclusively.

The stage was befitting of John 5's affinity for striking visual aesthetics. Leaning on the spookier side, the painted guitarist and his bandmates were flanked by inflatable Halloween stage props a la Misfits, although on a smaller scale than the towering pumpkins that bookended the horror punk legends' stage at their reunion concerts. The guitarist's bandmates also swapped costumes throughout the night as they ripped through a variety of songs from The Creatures and even tossed in Metallica's "Enter Sandman" in the middle of the set.

Even John 5's guitars played to the visual strengths of the show as he rotated axes, exchanging his gold Telecaster for a light up guitar which he fittingly brought onstage when jamming with the end of set special guest, which we'll get to in a moment. Channeling his inner Jimmy Page, he put a bow to the strings of a lava lamp guitar, adding an element of unpredictability to the show.

To end the night John 5 brought out the man who influenced him the most which was none other than original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley. "The number one reason I picked up guitar," he said, introducing the Spaceman. Together, they performed the KISS classics "Parasite," and "Shock Me" with the latter starring two unannounced guests on backing vocals which were Mr. Big / Ace Frehley drummer Matt Starr and King's X bassist and vocalist Dug Pinnick. In addition to performing two songs together, John 5 and Frehley had a guitar battle which included some humorous parts like the themes to James Bond (Frehley) and The Simpsons (John 5), and KISS' disco-leaning hit "I Was Made for Loving You," (John 5).

Putting a cap on the night, one of John 5's crew members made his way onstage, dressed like Captain Spaulding from The Devil's Rejects, and shot confetti everywhere.

See the set list and photos from the show below.

Ace Frehley: buon compleanno all'ex chitarrista dei Kiss





Paul Daniel "Ace" Frehley nasce nel a New York (Bronx) il 27 aprile 1951 ed è un chitarrista statunitense noto soprattutto come chitarrista del gruppo rock dei Kiss, in cui usava il nome d'arte Ace Frehley - The Spaceman.
Il soprannome "Ace" ("asso") è un riferimento alla sua abilità con le donne. Ace Frehley nasce il 27 aprile del 1951 nel Bronx, New York da una famiglia umile. I componenti della sua famiglia sono tutti musicisti (il padre suona l'organo in una chiesa, la madre e la sorella il pianoforte e il fratello suona la chitarra alle feste matrimoniali). Frehley all'inizio non venne toccato dalla musica e cresce frequentando le gangs di strada (nella sua stessa banda c'era anche Blackie Lawless, futuro leader dei W.A.S.P.).

A 13 anni, i genitori gli donarono una chitarra, cercando in tutti i modi di toglierlo dalla delinquenza. Frehley continua la vita da adolescente ribelle, anche se inizia a distaccarsi dalle gangs di strada, dopo essere rimasto vittima di una rissa e dopo che gli venne fratturato il cranio con una bottiglia di vetro.

Avvicinandosi ai 20 anni, abbandona definitivamente quello stile di vita ed inizia a suonare seriamente il suo strumento (ringrazierà sempre la musica per aver contribuito ad allontanarlo dalla vita di strada) ascoltando chitarristi come Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, Jeff Beck e Jimmy Page.

Preso il diploma, Ace inizia a fare lavoretti per raggranellare i soldi necessari all'acquisto della strumentazione e suona in band minori come "Magic People", "The Muff Divers" e "Four Roses", migliorando in tecnica e in esperienza. Verso la fine del 1972 Frehley lesse un annuncio su un giornale riguardante un gruppo che cercava un chitarrista solista ed Ace si presentò all'audizione. Paul Stanley, leader di questo gruppo, accettò Frehley non solo per la sua bravura ma anche per la sua stravaganza (la leggenda narra che si presentò con una scarpa arancione ed una rossa), una caratteristica a cui Stanley teneva molto.

Nacque così una band che entrerà a far parte della storia della musica, i Kiss. La formazione, ora completa, comprendeva Paul Stanley alla voce e chitarra, Gene Simmons alla voce e basso, Peter Criss alla batteria e Ace Frehley alla chitarra solista; con questa formazione venne realizzato il primo album omonimo Kiss (1974).

Sulla copertina dell'album e durante le loro esibizioni, i Kiss si presentavano con il volto truccato ed indossando dei costumi. Il personaggio impersonato da Ace Frehley era l'uomo dello spazio (SpaceMan), con il trucco facciale costituito da stelle argentate bordate di nero. Oltre al trucco e al costume, Frehley aggiunse alla sua Gibson Les Paul alcuni effetti speciali costituiti da un fumogeno al posto del pick-up e dei razzi posti nella paletta della chitarra, collegandoli ai componenti elettrici dei volumi e dei toni.

Il genere suonato era il glam rock, genere basato sull'immagine e sullo spettacolo di cui i Kiss, assieme a New York Dolls, Alice Cooper e Slade, furono fra i rappresentanti più illustri. Cold Gin, brano del disco scritto da Ace, diventerà uno dei cavalli di battaglia dei Kiss e sarà oggetto di cover da parte di tantissimi gruppi.

I Kiss entreranno nella storia del rock grazie a dischi di valore come il disco dal vivo Alive! (definito dalla critica uno dei migliori live della storia), Dressed to Kill (1975) e Destroyer (1976).

Ma il successo del quartetto portò eccessi e diverbi che portarono i Kiss verso l'instabilità. Nel 1982 Ace Frehley, dopo un'accesa discussione con i due membri fondatori Stanley e Simmons, lascia improvvisamente il gruppo. Alcuni dei motivi furono il disaccordo musicale (Ace non apprezzò le svolte di Dynasty, Unmasked e Music from "The Elder") e il poco spazio compositivo che i due membri fondatori lasciavano al chitarrista durante la produzione dei brani.

Inoltre poco prima del previsto tour di "The Elder", che non fu mai effettuato, Ace ebbe un grave incidente automobilistico con la sua DeLorean, da cui poi il brano Rock Soldiers con i Frehley's Comet. Tuttavia, negli album successivi, ovvero Killers e Creatures of the Night, Frehley continuò ad apparire nella copertina e ad essere indicato nei crediti come chitarrista solista, pur non avendo mai partecipato neanche alla composizione dei brani anche se compare nei video.

Nelle registrazioni degli album fu sostituito da Bob Kulick, Adam Mitchell, Steve Farris e Vinnie Vincent, che prenderà ufficialmente, a partire dal dicembre del 1982, il posto di Frehley.

Nel 1996 è rientrato insieme a Peter Criss a far parte dei Kiss e tutti insieme (Paul, Gene, Ace e Peter) hanno prodotto l'album Psycho Circus (1998) dal quale successivamente nel 2000 uscì il gioco omonimo.


Successivamente nel 1999 tutti e 4 i componenti originali hanno realizzato il film "Detroit rock city" per poi risepararsi per far entrare nella band i 2 nuovi componenti: Eric Singer al posto di Peter Criss e Tommy Thayer al posto di Ace Frehley.

Dopo aver lasciato i Kiss, Ace fonda la propria band: i Frehley's Comet e pubblica il primo album omonimo della formazione nel 1987. Il chitarrista viene accompagnato dal batterista Anton Fig (che suonò anche con i Kiss in Dynasty, Unmasked per sostituire Peter Criss e nell'album solista di Ace durante il periodo del suo ex gruppo), dal cantante/chitarrista Tod Howarth e dal bassista John Regan. Il genere è un glam metal molto vicino ai Kiss ma con un suono più moderno e robusto.

Nel 1988 esce il mini-album dal vivo intitolato Live + 1 e il successivo disco in studio Second Sighting dove il posto di batterista viene preso, temporaneamente, da Jamie Oldaker.

Mentre Anton Fig torna, il cantante Howarth se ne va e il gruppo incide un nuovo album a nome di Ace Frehley chiamato Trouble Walkin (1989). Alla voce c'è lo stesso Frehley e vengono chiamati vari ospiti come Sebastian Bach, Dave Sabo e Peter Criss, dopodiché il gruppo si scioglierà.

Arriva una notizia positiva per i fan dei Kiss. Dopo un bel po' di anni di assenza dal mondo della musica, Ace torna con i compagni di un tempo, prendendo il posto di Bruce Kulick (chitarrista solista dei Kiss per circa un decennio) e incidono il disco live acustico Kiss Unplugged (1996). Nel gruppo torna anche Peter Criss e la formazione originale incide: Psycho Circus (1998) dove Frehley canta in due brani: Into the Void e In Your Face (brano contenuto nella versione giapponese del disco).

Nel 2000 i Kiss intraprendono il tour di addio: The Farewell Tour e successivamente la band si dichiarò definitivamente sciolta[senza fonte].

Nel 2002 i Kiss si riuniscono e oltre ai membri originali Stanley e Simmons si aggregano il nuovo chitarrista Tommy Thayer e il batterista Eric Singer (che già suonò con loro in Revenge, Alive III e Carnival of Souls) con questa nuova line up, a sorpresa, i Kiss pubblicano nel 2009 il nuovo album Sonic Boom.

Intanto, Ace si dà a una piccola parentesi cinematografica e recita in un film chiamato Remedy (2005) e torna alla sua carriera solista pubblicando nel 2009 il suo quinto album, intitolato Anomaly.

Nel 2006 ha partecipato ai Rock Honors, suonando la canzone dei Kiss (God of Thunder) insieme a Slash, Rob Zombie, Tommy Lee, Gilby Clarke e Scott Ian.

Durante la tournée del 1977 in Giappone, mentre erano in albergo, Frehley, in stato di ubriachezza, si presentò con una divisa nazista mostrando il saluto romano.

Ciò non poté che sucitare l'ira di Gene Simmons, dato che quest'ultimo proveniva (come per Paul Stanley) da una famiglia ebrea e che sua madre scampò per miracolo all'olocausto. Ripresosi dalla sbornia, Ace dovette chiedere scusa a Simmons per l'accaduto.

Ace Frehley: joyeux anniversaire à l'ancien guitariste de Kiss


Paul Daniel "Ace" Frehley est né à New York (Bronx) le 27 avril 1951 et est un guitariste américain connu principalement comme le guitariste du groupe rock Kiss, dans lequel il a utilisé le nom de scène Ace Frehley - The Spaceman.
Le surnom "Ace" ("ace") est une référence à sa capacité avec les femmes. Ace Frehley est né le 27 avril 1951 dans le Bronx, New York, par une famille humble. Les membres de sa famille sont tous musiciens (le père joue de l'orgue dans une église, la mère et la soeur le piano et le frère joue de la guitare aux noces). Frehley n'a pas été touché par la musique au début et a grandi avec des gangs de rue (Dans son propre groupe il y avait aussi Blackie Lawless, futur chef du W.A.S.P.)

A 13 ans, ses parents lui ont présenté une guitare en regardant tous les moyens de le retirer de la délinquance. Frehley encore la vie d'adolescente rebelle, même si elle commence à se détacher des gangs de rue, après avoir été victime d'un combat et après qui a été fracture du crâne avec une bouteille en verre.

En approchant 20 ans, il a définitivement abandonné ce style de vie et a commencé à jouer sérieusement son instrument (encore une fois remercier la musique pour aider à se déplacer loin de la vie de la rue) en écoutant des guitaristes comme Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, Jeff Beck et Jimmy Page.

Après avoir été diplômé, Ace a commencé à faire des corvées pour réunir l'argent nécessaire à l'achat de l'instrumentation et a joué dans des groupes mineurs tels que "Magic People", "The Muff Divers" et "Four Roses". Vers la fin de 1972, Frehley a lu une annonce dans un journal sur un groupe qui cherchait un guitariste solo et Ace s'est présenté à l'audition. Paul Stanley, leader de ce groupe, a accepté Frehley non seulement pour son talent mais aussi pour son extravagance (la légende raconte qu'il s'est présenté avec une chaussure orange et une chaussure rouge), une caractéristique dont Stanley se souciait beaucoup.

C'est ainsi qu'est né un groupe qui va faire partie de l'histoire de la musique, Kiss. La formation, maintenant complète, comprenait Paul Stanley au chant et à la guitare, Gene Simmons au chant et à la basse, Peter Criss à la batterie et Ace Frehley à la guitare principale; Avec cette formation a été créé le premier album homonyme Kiss (1974).

Sur la couverture de l'album et lors de leurs performances, le Kiss s'est présenté avec des maquillages et des costumes. Le personnage joué par Ace Frehley était l'homme de l'espace (SpaceMan), avec le maquillage du visage composé d'étoiles d'argent bordées de noir. En plus de maquillage et costume, Frehley ajouté à sa Gibson Les Paul des effets spéciaux se composent d'une bombe fumigène à la place du pick-up et placé des fusées au manche de la guitare, en les reliant aux composants électriques de volume et de tonalité.

Le genre joué était le glam rock, genre basé sur l'image et le spectacle dont Kiss, avec New York Dolls, Alice Cooper et Slade, étaient parmi les représentants les plus éminents. Cold Gin, un morceau du disque écrit par Ace, deviendra l'un des cheval de bataille du Kiss et fera l'objet d'une reprise par de nombreux groupes.

Kiss entrera dans l'histoire du rock grâce à des disques précieux tels que l'album live Alive! (Qualifié par les critiques comme l'un des meilleurs live de l'histoire), Dressed to Kill (1975) et Destroyer (1976).
Mais le succès du quatuor a provoqué des excès et des craintes qui ont amené Kiss à l'instabilité. En 1982, Ace Frehley, après une discussion animée avec les deux membres fondateurs Stanley et Simmons, a soudainement quitté le groupe. Certaines des raisons étaient le désaccord musical (Ace n'a pas apprécié les tours de Dynasty, Unmasked et Music from "The Elder") et le petit espace de composition que les deux membres fondateurs ont laissé au guitariste pendant la production de ces albums.

Aussi peu avant la tournée prévue de "The Elder", qui n'a jamais été jouée, Ace a eu un grave accident de voiture avec son DeLorean, d'où la chanson Rock Soldiers avec Frehley’s Comet. Cependant, dans les albums suivants, ou Killers et Creatures of the Night, Frehley a continué à apparaître sur la pochette et à être montré dans le générique en tant que guitariste solo, bien qu'il n'ait jamais participé à la composition des chansons même si elle apparaît dans les vidéos.

Dans les enregistrements des albums il a été remplacé par Bob Kulick, Adam Mitchell, Steve Farris et Vinnie Vincent, qui prendra officiellement la place de Frehley en décembre 1982.
En 1996, il revient avec Peter Criss pour faire partie du Kiss Réunion (Paul, Gene, Ace et Peter) produit l'album Psycho Circus (1998) dont sortira ensuite le jeu du même nom en 2000.

Puis, en 1999, les 4 originaux ont tourné le film "Detroit rock city" et se sont séparés pour intégrer 2 nouveaux membres dans le groupe: Eric Singer au lieu de Peter Criss et Tommy Thayer à la place d'Ace Frehley.

Après avoir quitté Kiss, Ace a fondé son propre groupe: Frehley's Comet et a sorti le premier album éponyme du groupe en 1987. Le guitariste est accompagné du batteur Anton Fig (qui a également joué avec Kiss sur Dynasty et Unmasked pour remplacer Peter Criss et dans l'album solo d'Ace durant la période avec son ancien groupe), le chanteur / guitariste Tod Howarth et le bassiste John Regan. Le genre est un glam metal très proche de Kiss mais avec un son plus moderne et plus robuste.

En 1988, il a sorti le mini-album intitulé Live + 1 suivi de l’album Second Sighting où le batteur a été Jamie Oldaker.

Alors qu'Anton Fig revient, le chanteur Howarth part et le groupe enregistre un nouvel album intitulé Ace Frehley, Trouble Walkin (1989). Le chant est assuré par Frehley lui-même et divers invités sont appelés tels que Sebastian Bach, Dave Sabo et Peter Criss, après quoi le groupe se dissoudra.

Il y a des nouvelles positives pour les fans de Kiss. Après beaucoup « d'années d'absence du monde de la musique, Ace revient avec d'anciens camarades, prenant le relais de Bruce Kulick (guitariste principal de KISS depuis une décennie) et enregistré leur album live acoustique Kiss Unplugged (1996) . Le groupe a également dos Peter Criss et la programmation originale enregistrée: Psycho Circus (1998) où Frehley chante sur deux pistes: Into the Void et In Your Face (fichier dans la version japonaise de l'album).

En 2000, Kiss se lance dans la tournée d'adieu: The Farewell Tour et plus tard le groupe se déclare définitivement dissous [sans source].

En 2002, Kiss se rassemblent et en plus des membres originaux Stanley et Simmons ensemble nouveau guitariste Tommy Thayer et le batteur Eric Singer (qui a déjà joué avec eux dans La Revanche Alive III et Carnival of Souls) avec cette nouvelle gamme, la surprise , Kiss a sorti le nouvel album Sonic Boom en 2009.
Pendant ce temps, Ace participe au film intitulé Remedy (2005) et revient à sa carrière solo en publiant en 2009 son cinquième album, intitulé Anomaly.

En 2006, il a participé aux Rock Honors, jouant la chanson de Kiss (God of Thunder) avec Slash, Rob Zombie, Tommy Lee, Gilby Clarke et Scott Ian.

Pendant la tournée de 1977 au Japon, alors que dans l'hôtel, Frehley, dans un état d'ivresse, s'est présenté avec un uniforme nazi montrant le salut romain.

Cela ne pouvait que susciter la colère de Gene Simmons, puisque ce dernier est venu (comme Paul Stanley) d'une famille juive et que sa mère a miraculeusement échappé à l'Holocauste. Récupéré de la gueule de bois, Ace a dû présenter des excuses à Simmons pour l'incident.

Ace Frehley un phénomène rock



Avec deux périodes dans le groupe dirigé par Gene Simmons, le guitariste qui a 67 ans aujourd'hui est devenu célèbre sans avoir de connaissances musicales
Même pour Ace Frehley, guitariste fondateur de KISS, qui célèbre aujourd'hui son 67ème anniversaire, la grande maîtrise de son instrument est un mystère complet

"Je suis une anomalie, je n'ai pas d'études. Je ne sais même pas comment lire une partition, mais je suis l'un des guitaristes les plus célèbres au monde », a déclaré le New Yorker en 2009 au Rock N Roll Magazine.

Membre fondateur du groupe dirigé par Gene Simmons, Frehley a fait l'histoire de KISS en deux périodes entre 1973 et 1982 et 1996 à 2002, dans lesquelles il a assumé le rôle de Spaceman avec la composition emblématique de ses membres.

Une partie de sa contribution au groupe est dans les chansons Strutter et Detroit Rock City, ainsi que les mélodies New York Groove et Rip It Out dans son rôle de soliste, dans lequel il a fait sept albums

Sans être une réunion officielle de KISS, Ace retrouvera Gene Simmons qui fera une tournée solo en août, pour laquelle il l'a invité. (Avec information des agences)
