How Eddie Money Took Ace Frehley Back To School

From: Ultimate Classic Rock

By Matthew Wilkening

Ace Frehley says a recent visit to his old high-school stomping grounds helped inspire his latest cover song, a wistful take on Eddie Money's "I Wanna Go Back."

Covers have always been an important part of Frehley's career. A hit version of Hello's "New York Groove" helped his 1978 solo album outshine the corresponding efforts of his Kiss counterparts, and earned him a greater share of the songwriting and vocal duties on the group's subsequent albums.

Since Frehley started his solo career, each of his albums has featured at least one take on a song made famous by somebody else, including nearly every track on 2016's influence-honoring Origins, Vol. 1.

Watch Ace Frehley Reunite With Kiss for Acoustic Set

Original guitarist joins band for first time in 17 years on KISS Kruise

By John Blistein

KISS reunited with original lead guitarist Ace Frehley for the first time in 17 years for an acoustic set on the annual Kiss Kruise. Frehley joined Kiss for four songs, including “Nothing to Lose” and “Rock and Roll All Nite.” The group also performed their cover of the Rolling Stones’ “2000 Man” – which Frehley sang on 1979’s Dynasty – as well as Hello’s “New York Groove,” which Frehley covered on his 1978 solo debut.

Prior to their rendition of “Nothin’ to Lose,” Frehley said, “This is great… this is so great. Thank you guys for inviting me up.” Paul Stanley then added, “All this couldn’t have happened if we hadn’t happened. We started this. So thank you for being here.” Along with Frehley, the acoustic set featured former Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick. Both Frehley and Kulick were performing on the Kiss Kruise as solo artists.

ACE FREHLEY DISCUSSES HIS 8TH SOLO ALBUM, "SPACEMAN"

Considered by those in the know to be the musical genius behind KISS, Ace “Space Ace” Frehley was an original member of the band when it formed in 1973, and was a mainstay of the group until his departure in 1982 to pursue a solo career. Ace Frehley's new album, "Spaceman," contains eight originals and a cover of the Eddie Money hit "I Wanna Go Back," continues a decade of productivity for Frehley. The album also features a reunion of sorts with his former Kiss bandmate Gene Simmons, who co-wrote the opener "Without You I'm Nothing."

Ace Frehley, “Spaceman” (Entertainment One)

Ace Frehley may or may not be returned to the fold when Kiss launches their (second) farewell tour next year, but whatever the result, he sure sounds ready for the gig. On his new solo album, “Spaceman,” the legendary guitarist oozes classic rock style and six-string chops that sound as good today as they did in 1975.

American Music Supply Exclusive Interview with Chris Wyse

Bassist Chris Wyse is a busy, busy man – and that’s no surprise when your versatile contributions to The Cult, Ozzy Osbourne, Mick Jagger, Tal Bachman, and countless others headline your musical resume. After recording on Ace Frehley’s blistering new solo album, Origins Vol. 1, an epic first leg of a tour with the iconic KISS guitarist soon followed. AMS had the privilege of meeting with Wyse during his brief moment of downtime.

After all, he’s back on the road with Frehley for the second half of the year, beginning in the middle of August. Wyse talks about his setup - including his trusty Ampeg bass amps and D’Addario strings, recalls how he came to work and record with Frehley, and discusses taking center stage as the frontman of his own heavy alternative trio, Owl.

Ace Frehley Debuts "Fire and Water" Video Featuring Paul Stanley

ACE FREHLEY DEBUTS “FIRE AND WATER” MUSIC VIDEO FEATURING KISS FRONTMAN PAUL STANLEY

FIRST MUSIC VIDEO FEATURING ACE + PAUL IN 18 YEARS

ACE FREHLEY CRACKS THE U.S. TOP 10

ORIGINS VOL. 1 OUT NOW

(April 27, 2016) -- 2014 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame member ACE FREHLEY today has debuted a brand new music video for his cover of Free’s 1970 hit “Fire and Water” featuring none other than KISS frontman PAUL STANLEY. The video is being premiered exclusively through VEVO. "It was great working with Paul again and all the years we've spent apart doing other projects seemed to vanish once we hit the stage!," says Frehley.

The video notches itself into rock and roll history as the first time both Frehley and Stanley appear in a music video since KISS’ music video for “Psycho Circus” released in 1998. It’s also the first time in 14 years that the two shared a stage since KISS’ appearance at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. Finally, it’s the first time Frehley has released a music video since 1989, which was Frehley's cover of "Do Ya" released by both The Move and ELO.

Earlier this week, ACE FREHLEY cracked the U.S. top 10 with his latest effort Origins: Vol. 1 charting at #1 on the Billboard Hard Music Chart, #3 on the Billboard Rock chart and #6 on the Billboard Current Chart selling more than 16k units in its first week of release according to Nielsen Soundscan. Internationally, the LP most notably came in at #2 on the Sweden Hard Rock Charts and #05 on the England Indie Album Breaker Charts.

Origins: Vol.1 and its success serves as the follow up to Space Invader, which debuted at #9 on the Top 200 Chart in 2014, the same year Ace Frehley was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as an original member of KISS.

ACE FREHLEY released Origins Vol. 1, a collection of 12 newly recorded classics from Ace’s formative years featuring some of the biggest names in rock and roll on April 15, 2016. This collaboration marks the first time that Ace and Paul appear on the same studio recording since KISS' 1998 reunion album Psycho Circus.

Ace spoke with Rolling Stone about the new record, his guest players and recording with Paul after all these years. Rolling Stone writes: Regarding his reunion with Stanley, Frehley shrugs off any residual tension between the two of them. "We've always been friends," he says. "The press seems to amplify negativity. I guess it makes good copy."

Rolling Stone debuted "White Room," a few months ago, the classic hit originally performed by Cream. Other guests are none other than Slash trading leads on Thin Lizzy's classic "Emerald," Lita Ford singing and playing lead on The Troggs staple "Wild Thing," Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 playing guitar alongside Ace as he sings his classic KISS composition "Parasite" for the very first time, as well as Jimi Hendrix's "Spanish Castle Magic," and Pearl Jam's Mike McCready also plays guitar with Ace as he finally sings his KISS “Alive!” mainstay "Cold Gin."
