Born Paul Frehley, 22 April 1951, Bronx, New York, USA. Ace Frehley rose to fame as the lead guitarist for premier US hard rock band Kiss during its prime years. Often nicknamed "Space Ace" by fans, Frehley released his first, self-titled solo album in September 1978, with albums by the other three members of Kiss also recorded simultaneously. Released on Casablanca Records, the album, which found the guitarist attempting more diverse musical styles than he was allowed to follow within the context of Kiss, reached the Top 30 and spawned a number 13 single, the Russ Ballard-penned "New York Groove". Frehley left Kiss in December 1982 following a near-fatal car accident, and attempted to free himself of a drug habit over the next four years. He formed his own band, Frehley's Comet, in 1987, with whom he recorded three studio albums. He rejoined Kiss on their successful reunion tour in 1996.
