Description: Ace Frehley is known around the world as a founding member and lead guitarist for the legendary rock band KISS. He masterminded and embodied the persona of the "Space Ace" when the band shocked the planet with costumes, makeup, and exploding theatrics! Frehley was a crucial member of KISS from its inception in 1973 until his departure in 1982.
After leaving KISS, Frehley embarked on a new journey that lead to a successful solo career, selling millions of albums with his band, Frehley's Comet, as well as under his own name. This endeavor, however, was put on hold when he rejoined his old bandmates for the highly successful KISS Reunion Tour in 1996, which became the No. 1 grossing tour of '96-'97. He returned to the studio with KISS in 1998 to record the Psycho Circus album and performed on the tour as well. He completed his run with the boys in 2001 on the band's Farewell Tour, ending in Australia.
Frehley has since resumed recording and performing worldwide. On September 15, 2009, he released the album Anomaly to rave reviews. He also continues to stay at the top of his game by sharing the stage with other legendary artists like Slash and his recent cameo at Madison Square Garden with Pearl Jam, which sent the audience into a frenzy. He is an inspiration and influence to guitar players, musicians, and music lovers around the globe with his signature style, both on and off the stage.
