Ace frehley rock and roll hell
No Regrets: A Rock n Roll Memoir by Ace FrehleyTHE MUSIC, THE MAKEUP, THE MADNESS, AND MORE. . . . In December of 1972, a pair of musicians placed an advertisement in the Village Voice: “GUITARIST WANTED WITH FLASH AND ABILITY.” Ace Frehley figured he had both, so he answered the ad. The rest is rock ’n’ roll history.
He was just a boy from the Bronx with stars in his eyes. But when he picked up his guitar and painted stars on his face, Ace Frehley transformed into “The Spaceman”—and helped turn KISS into one of the top-selling bands in the world. Now, for the first time, the beloved rock icon reveals his side of the story with no-holds-barred honesty . . . and no regrets.
For KISS fans, Ace offers a rare behind-the-makeup look at the band’s legendary origins, including the lightning-bolt logo he designed and the outfits his mother sewed. He talks about the unspoken division within the band—he and Peter Criss versus Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons—because the other two didn’t “party every day.” Ace also reveals the inside story behind his turbulent breakup with KISS, their triumphant reunion a decade later, and his smash solo career. Along the way, he shares wild stories about dancing at Studio 54 with “The Bionic Woman,” working as a roadie for Jimi Hendrix, and bar-flying all night with John Belushi. In the end, he comes to terms with his highly publicized descent into alcohol, drugs, and self-destruction—ultimately managing to conquer his demons and come out on top.
This is Ace Frehley.

days of our lives in detail
Ace Frehley has had a far-reaching influence on hard rock. The late Dimebag Darrell of Pantera had the former Kiss guitarist's face tattooed on his chest, and today, Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes sports a lightning bolt guitar strap similar to Frehley's. That's not to mention the countless ax-slingers who continue to gain tons of inspiration from Frehley's fiery solos on songs like "Rock and Roll All Night," "Detroit Rock City" and "Shock Me" the first Kiss song Frehley sang lead vocals on. In the '70s, while sporting his iconic spaceman costume—a persona arguably more intriguing than bandmate Gene Simmons's Kabuki monster—Frehley helped Kiss become, as the announcer proclaims on 's concert double album Alive! But when he was still in Kiss, Frehley also proved to be a talented solo artist with his eponymous album, the most critically acclaimed and highest charting of the four Kiss solo albums released that year. It featured his famous Top 20 single "New York Groove. Nobody knew what anybody else was doing, and I guess there was competition, healthy competition, unhealthy competition [ laughs ], whatever you wanna say.
Been under fire sixteen years, just waitin' for his time tocome He fought the lies, fought back the tears, can't wait to hearthat starting gun There ain't nobody gonna step on his dreams So he held his hands high and screamed. Get me out of this rock and roll hell, take me far away Get me out of this rock and roll hell Get me out of this rock and roll hell, I need to get away Get me out of this rock and roll hell. He's on the edge, he can feel it in his heart This time the pressure's really on He's gonna fight it, might even steal a guitar This time tomorrow he'll be gone There ain't nobody gonna tell him what to do Think he's a little like me and you. He's on the run, won't stand for second place, but his turn maynever come He's not a victim, you can see it in his face But he can't see what he's become Well, he wants it bad, but he wants no charity He seems to think it's his destiny. Get me out of this rock and roll hell, I need to get away Get me out of this rock and roll hell. Get me out of this rock and roll hell, take me far away Get me out of this rock and roll hell Get me out of this rock and roll hell, I need to get away Get me out of this rock and roll hell Get me out of this rock and roll hell, take me far away Get me out of this rock and roll hell Get me out of this rock and roll hell, I need to get away Get me out of this rock and roll hell.
Ace Frehley fans who find it odd that his new Origins Vol. Frehley and Gulick described the process by which "Rock and Roll Hell" ended up on the record during a visit to Eddie Trunk's show , explaining that thanks to Gulick, Frehley ended up listening to the Kiss record Creatures of the Night start-to-finish for possibly the first time ever. That CD, according to Gulick, contained two Rush songs, two Cheap Trick songs, two Who songs — and two songs from Creatures of the Night , which was tracked while Frehley was making his exit from the group. As Gulick explained, he'd gotten the impression from some recent interviews that Frehley might feel like he had some unfinished business with the record. Your face is on this thing. You helped it go gold and platinum.
