We have a trashy reality show about Gene Simmons but the more interesting series might revolve around Ace Frehley, a man who's had more ins & outs with KISS than Simmons' (supposedly) 1000+ lovers. The bastard child of Mick Ronson and the New York Dolls was born on this day in 1951. Lift your lighters to KISS' greatest lead guitarist and a riff monster of the first order.
We begin with Ace at his brutish, glam-punk best doing "I Stole Your Love" in KISS' stadium glory days.
Here's our cosmic birthday boy going off in 1977 in the Land of the Rising Sun. The guitar begins to smoke at the 3:00 minute mark!
And here's Ace getting his "New York Groove" on this past February:
Don't forget, you can eyeball video sweetness 24/7 with JamBase TV.
For as much of a gimmick KISS is/was... you can't deny Ace could f'n rip it. Happy MF birthday.
Ace Frehley rocks!
