Ace Frehley Launching New Website
Most people familiar with rock music are familiar with the name Ace Frehley. Ace was the lead guitarist for the rock band KISS during the 70s heydays and the reunion heydays. Between heydays, he had a fairly mediocre solo career, releasing 3 albums of original material, 1 live ep, a greatest hits album, a live video and a greatest “live” hits album. None of these releases set the charts on fire but did have some great songs.
The last original release from Ace was his Trouble Walkin’ album, released in October 1989. Since then there have been numerous promises of new material. A new album was invariably “going to be released next year”. It never happened. It’s been nearly 20 years now, topping even Axl Rose’s long gestating Chinese Democracy.
Also like Rose, 2008 has been an active year for Ace. Ace went on his first solo tour since before the KISS reunion. He had sold out shows around the country. There were also many interviews conducted, with Ace stating that the album was almost done and that he would be selling it via his own website.
Well, check this out. As a lark last night I typed in his URL and it worked:
So this is a countdown clock. Those REALLY familiar with Ace know he did this several years ago and then the site never happened. However, I’m going to keep my fingers crossed that this is finally the real deal. What about you?
