Former Kiss guitarist, Ace Frehley, had a conversation with ZackAttack of the 93.5 FM MAX who discussed his upcoming studio album:
Regarding what fans can expect from the upcoming effort, the 72-year-old rocker said: “I think it may be the best album I’ve ever done to date. And it’s the first time I co-wrote most of the songs with Steve Brown from Trixter.
”He’s a great songwriter, and I’m a great songwriter, and we put our two heads together and songs come out doubly good. He also harmonizes perfectly with me.” […]
Ace Frehley was also asked if he expected that his solo career would have this kind of longevity when he signed his first solo deal:
“It was hard in the beginning, but now I’ve picked up a lot of steam. In fact, I remember when I first signed with eOne Music, now they sold the record company to MNRK Music Group, and I’m still working with the same people, but I remember the guy that got me signed to the label, he told me that, before ”Anomaly” came out, he said a lot of people said to him, ‘You’re not even gonna get the record.’ Because Paul (Stanley) and Gene (Simmons) have pretty much tried to destroy my credibility by calling me a drunk, and a drug addict, and somebody who’s not dependable.
”But if that were the case, how did I make five albums? And I’ve been touring steadily for the last 10 years plus. It doesn’t make any sense. They contradict themselves all the time. Now they’re putting me down and saying if I came up and played with them on the farewell tour, it would mar their performance. Paul said on ‘The Howard Stern Show’, you might as well call the band Pi** instead of Kiss if I got up on stage with them. Well, when this album comes about, it’s gonna make him look like an imbecile.”
