What you may not know is that Ace Frehley has not been a memberof KISS since 2002, when he left his second tenure with the band (there’s a “spaceman” currently playing leads for the band, but it ain’t Ace). In his time away from KISS (1983-1996, and 2002-present), Frehley has put together the most successful solo career of any member—current or former. And Ace is on a roll. He’s ready to embark on his next musical journey with Spaceman, his third solo outing in four years. Of allAce’s post-KISS recorded output, Spaceman might be the closest linkto his widely acclaimed 1978 solo record, both in spirit and execution. First off, Frehley played all of the guitar parts on Spaceman, as well as bass on all but two songs. Longtime drummer Anton Fig, whose friendshipwith Ace began in that 1978 record, also appears on “Off My Back”and “Pursuit of Rock and Roll” (longtime collaborators Scot Coogan andMatt Starr also play drums on Spaceman).
