Ace Frehley, iconic guitarist and one of the founding members of the legendary rock band KISS, is a musical force known for his electrifying performances and distinctive guitar prowess. Born Paul Daniel Frehley on April 27, 1951, in The Bronx, New York, he rose to fame as the "Spaceman" in KISS, contributing to their groundbreaking success in the 1970s. Renowned for his smoking guitar solos and signature silver space suit, Frehley's impact extends beyond KISS, with a successful solo career that showcases his songwriting and guitar skills. A true rock and roll legend, Ace Frehley continues to captivate audiences with his timeless rock anthems.
The original Spaceman recently stated to Jeff Napier of Nuvo regarding "10,000 Volts":
"It's probably the best record I've ever done. I'm very excited about it. It's the first time I ended up writing most of these songs with a good friend of mine, Steve Brown. He used to play in TRIXTER and has a group called RUBIX KUBE. Anyway, we live 40 minutes from each other, and my fiancée Lara hooked us up. I'd met him several times over the years, but just briefly, but she knew him when she was in her twenties, and she said, 'You've gotta get together with Steve.' He's a great songwriter and guitar player. He sent me a song, and there was one line that just jumped out from his chorus, and it was 'Walking On The Moon'. So I said, 'Listen, let's get together and rewrite this song, and the hook will be "Walking On The Moon",' because it wasn't the end of the chorus he had prepared. So, we rewrote the song, and it came out great. We were actually gonna call the album 'Walking On The Moon' until we recorded a song called "10,000 Volts", which came out amazing. I got Anton Fig, my old drummer, who played on my original '78 solo album and most of my solo stuff, to play drums on that. So, working with Steve has made a huge difference in my playing and writing because when he and I put our heads together, it just clicks. If I'm at a loss for a chord or a verse or a line, he comes up with it and vice versa, and within three or four hours, we write a song.
So that's how the record's been going," Ace added. "Then, once you record the basic track, you gotta do the overdubs and double and triple the vocals, harmonies, and stuff. He's an excellent engineer. So I didn't have to pay an engineer to engineer this record. So I saved money on that, working with Steve as well, which is nice."
