Ace Frehley: The rock legend on stage
Listening to the 70’s songs from the legendary rock band Kiss, it seems hard to understand why they would let Ace Frehley go as easily as they did, when he spilt from them in 1982. The exceptionally gifted lead guitarist was the heart and soul of the instrumental part while Paul Stanley was the divine voice that were the keys to the success of Kiss as a rock band. Never one to despair easily, Space Ace, as he was known on stage, went on to create a successful solo career that spans now more than three decades.

From the Bronx to the world stage
Ace Frehley was born in 1951 in The Bronx of New York into a musical family that virtually laid the talent into his lap. Mother and father played the piano while his siblings added acoustic guitar to the piano playing. Ace got his first electric guitar at the age of 13 and started right away to develop his self-taught, unconventional style that would later convince the other Kiss members that he is the right choice to be the lead guitarist. After playing in a few local bands, Ace found his home when he joined Kiss in 1972. The famed lightning bolt band logo was his creation as well as the decision to paint their faces on stage. When they matched the makeup with costumes, Ace became Space Ace thanks to the silver stars he painted on his eyes. After the split in 1982, Ace went on to release a number of solo albums with the support of the Frehley’s Comet band. While some were hugely successful, others didn’t make it into the top 100 of the charts. He also went on tour as supporting act for Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden. Ace reunited with Kiss in 1996 for a reunion tour that saw them return to the studio to record the new album "Psycho Circus". The release of the album was followed by an extensive tour at the end of which Ace split for a second time from the band to resume his solo career. Never being one to produce albums at high speed, Ace recorded only four more albums since. The album "Spaceman" was released in 2018. Get your Ace Frehley tickets now at StubHub.
