Founding KISS guitarist and Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame member, Ace Frehley, spent an hour with the Monsters of Rock morning show earlier today.
Ace spoke with host Izzy Presley about everything from his stellar new solo album, reconnecting with Gene Simmons, covering Eddie Money and the Rolling Stones, firing his entire band and living a sober life.
Ace also finally ended speculation on the proposed rumours of him being the opening act on KISS’ End Of The Road Tour. Ace told Izzy, “I will not open that tour and you can tell them I said that! If I can’t regain my throne, I’m not going to do it. I invented it!”
Ace recently released a music video for “Rockin’ With The Boys”. Filmed live in Detroit Rock City, this is the first music video we’ve seen from The Spaceman since he released the video for “Fire And Water”.
That video featured KISS frontman Paul Stanley and was off of Origins, Vol. 1, released in 2016. The video was done by veteran director Justin Reich.
This is the second song Frehley has released this year, from his forthcoming all-new Spaceman album, due October 19th, via Entertainment One (eOne). Frehley previously released the track “Bronx Boy” in April.
“No need to worry, I’ll be home soon, ’cause I’m rockin’ with the boys,” Frehley sings on “Rockin’ With the Boys”, which tells the tale of life on the road. Ace says he wrote the original version of the song back in KISS’s heyday in the ’70s. Both “Rockin With The Boys” and “Bronx Boy” are available on all streaming platforms today, and are iTunes instant grat tracks for fans who pre-order the album.
