Ace Frehley



Ace Frehley was born Paul Daniel Frehley on April 27, 1951 in The Bronx, New York City. He was the youngest of five children born to Esther Anna and Carl Daniel Frehley. His father, a bus driver, was of German descent and his mother was of Italian descent.

Ace grew up in a rough neighborhood in the Bronx, surrounded by poverty and crime, and was inspired by the sounds of rock and roll music that filled the air. He was particularly drawn to the sounds of the electric guitar, and it was this instrument that would eventually shape his career.

At the age of 14, Ace purchased his first electric guitar with money he earned from a newspaper route. He then joined a local band, The Magicians, and began playing shows in the area. His natural talent led him to join the band, The Missing Links, in 1964.

In 1967, Ace joined his first major band, the psychedelic rock group, Wicked Lester. After a few years of playing with the band, he eventually made the decision to leave and pursue a solo career.

It wasn’t until 1973 that Ace joined the legendary rock band, KISS. As the lead guitarist and one of the main songwriters, he quickly became a fan favorite and the “Spaceman” character he created was an iconic symbol of the band. He wrote some of the band’s most recognizable songs, including “Cold Gin”, “Shock Me”, and “Rocket Ride”.

Ace left KISS in 1982 and began a solo career. He released five solo albums, and his third album, Frehley’s Comet, was a commercial success. He also formed the band Frehley’s Comet in 1985, and released two albums.

Ace rejoined KISS in 1996 for the band’s reunion tour. He left the band again in 2002, citing creative differences. He also released two more solo albums, Anomaly in 2009 and Origins Vol. 1 in 2016.

In addition to his musical career, Ace also authored two memoirs, No Regrets: A Rock 'n' Roll Memoir in 2011 and Astronomically Correct in 2019, and he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of KISS in 2014.
