Ace Frehley: Happy 60th Birthday

Ace Frehley is 60 years today. Happy birthday! Frehley will perform the `78 solo album in its entirity at the Hard Rock Hell V Festilval in November. Not bad. The autobiography "No Regrets" will be released in 2013 (according to Amazon), the European book sites, however, still says it will be released this year. We`ll just have to wait and see.

Ace Frehley have been a rock and roll artist his entire life, from the small pub bands in the late `60s to KISS and his solo career. And he has truly lived the life of a rock and roll star. Alcohol and drugs and late nights. But he has survived all that. 

Ace Frehley will play a few numbers of shows this summe:

June 18, 2011: Slinger, WI, Slinger Rocks
June 25, 2011: Des Moines, IO, Water Works Park, KGGO SummerJam
August 13, 2011: Three Forks, MT, Rockin' the Rivers Festival
August 27, 2011: Auburn, MI, DET Energy Center (with Alice Cooper)

Space Ace is known as the funny guy in KISS, here`s some funny quotes:
When you take a shower in space, you have to press the water onto your body to clean yourself, and then you gotta vacuum it off.

I believe that the only way that the human race is gonna survive is to start colonizing space and setting up colonies on the moon, and then space stations.

I can't even read notes. But I can teach someone how to make a guitar smoke.

As long as I know what key the solo is in, I try to kind of empty my mind and not think about anything. I just play without thinking.

Finding a good band is Iike finding a good wife. You got to keep trying till you find the right one.
