KISS's former lead guitarist has been a lot more active in the past couple of years supporting two different albums. Spaceman Ace Frehley is out and about again. He'll be making a stop at the Gas Monkey Live! tomorrow in Dallas, TX promoting his latest album, "Origins, Vol. 1". If you've seen Frehley before, you know the sort of electricity you can expect from one of the founding members of the Hottest Band in the World.
For those living under a rock, Ace recently released an album of cover songs entitled "Origins, Vol. 1" that showcases rock cuts he favors or feels have influenced his career. Songs include classics like "The White Room" by Cream, The Rolling Stones's "Street Fighting Man", and "Spanish Castle Magic" by Jimi Hendrix to name a few. Frehley even covers "Rock and Roll Hell", a KISS song written by Gene Simmons, Bryan Adams, and Jim Vallance that was put out after he had technically left the band. Ace even teamed up with Paul Stanley for a version of Free's "Fire and Water".
If you get the opportunity, definitely don't miss Ace Frehley at Gas Monkey Live! on August 18th. It's sure to be a rocking good time for all the legendary guitarist's Rock Soldiers to treat their eyes and ears to. You can look forward to songs off the Spaceman's solo albums as well as selections from his time with KISS.
