Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley invaded the 8-track machines and cassette decks of millions of teenagers and twenty-somethings as a member of what might be the most colorful — and wildly successful — rock n’ roll band ever.
Frehley’s membership in KISS lasted nine years, from 1973-82. Following his tumultuous departure — he rejoined the band for a reunion tour in the mid-1990s and stayed through 2002 — Frehley continued making hard rock music with Frehley’s Comet, which originally included Anton Fig, then the drummer for the Paul Shaffer-led band on “Late Night with David Letterman.”
“Space Invader” is Frehley’s newest album, released Aug. 19. Fans can expect a healthy dose of songs from the new release, but Frehley will undoubtedly mix in a number of songs from his 30-year solo career.
