5/29: Ace Frehley

Posted by Eddie Category: TRUNK REPORT

Been getting many questions about my old friend Ace Frehley lately. As usual there seems to be a great deal of misinformation out there. So here are some facts:

 

I am not working with Ace as a producer or in any capacity on a new album. I did suggest a studio and possible producer to him WHEN he wants to do a new album to check out, and I know he did. He had interest from a label for a new album but no idea where he stands with that. Nothing imminent as far as I know.I have always helped Ace when he has asked, simple as that.

 

I did NOT tell Ace he shouldn’t reunite with old Frehley’s Comet band members. As a matter of fact I never discussed this with him at all. Reunions of any kind happen generally for one reason, because they will mean more people and mean more money. If a promoter truly feels a reunion with former members of the band will move the needle and there is enough demand maybe it will happen. But I have not discussed this with Ace at all!

 

Ace is NOT homeless. The house in the news lately he does not live in. He has lived in Southern California for a couple years now. Not NY.

 

All I know is that there was some talk of maybe some live shows soon and maybe an album at some point. When I know anything more I will let you know. Thanks!

  1. Thanks Eddie.
    The Comment John Regan made came from a podcast interview. http://dbgeekshow.blogspot.ca/2013/04/episode-82-john-regan.html
    He didn’t say he knew for sure but either heard or thought it “Trunk may Have told Ace Reunion was a step backwards”.
    I would love to see Howard and Ace Reunion, not sure if it would be successful but guessing it would get some buzz. IMO Ace is strongest when he does not have to carry the whole show.

    1. I never saw Frehley’s Comet live, only Ace solo, but IMO the Live +1 album sounded kind of tame. I wish Ace would release some solo live stuff.

      1. I SEEN THEM LIVE IN COLUMBUS OHIO, GREAT SHOW WHITE LION OPENED UP FOR THEM. JAMIE OLEDKER(SP?) ON DRUMS, JOHN REGAN ON BASS, TODD HOWARTH AND ACE. HOWARTH’S VOCALS ARE PRETTY GOOD. ACE’S SINGING CAN BE VERY IN CONSISTANT WHEN GOING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN PLAYING AND MELODIES/HARMONIES.

  2. Eddie, I just love how you can easily talk about ACE as if he was just another soccer dad or someone you bump into at the grocery store.
    When I see ACE or hear his name, I immediately think of all the Halloweens I dressed as him or Peter Criss and how may tennis rackets I ran around the house with pretending to play his solos. That guy was a huge hero to me in my youth and you lucky SOB get to hang and talk about him like he’s old high school friend. You’re a lucky man, Eddie.

  3. I got an autographed Frehley’s Comet album signed by the band when they were promoting the first tour. They appeared at a Record Bar (remember that mall record store) I believe in Myrtle Beach, SC the year of its release. Anton Fig had already left though so the replacement signed where Anton’s picture was. Thanks for the info, Eddie. Eddie is back with the info and he told you so!
