The first live solo album by The Ace - guitarist of legendary American Hard Rock band KISS.
The best way to describe "The Ace" is that in a world full of copies, he remains an original. Let's face it, Ace was everyone's favorite when he was in Kiss - nobody is cooler than Ace. The smoking guitar, the original and screaming lead guitar, the voice, the songwriting... Ace is an extremely talented musician.
This collection of live songs represents some of his best work during the period after his highly publicized departure from one of the greatest Rock bands of all time. It's contains tracks from the Megaforce days and features members of Ace Frehley's Comet: Anton Fig, John Regan, Ted Howarth and Richie Scarlett, with Jamie Oldaker on drums (live in London), plus other special guests. Sit back and enjoy Ace Frehley in an atmosphere where he does his best work...LIVE!!
