The founding member and former lead guitarist for KISS shares his experiences with the iconic band, covering the band's rise to superstar fame, his battles with drug addiction, and his complicated relationships with Paul Stanley, Peter Criss, and Gene Simmons.

THE MUSIC, THE MAKEUP, THE MADNESS, AND MORE. . . . In December of 1972, a pair of musicians placed an advertisement in the "Village Voice" "GUITARIST WANTED WITH FLASH AND ABILITY." Ace Frehley figured he had both, so he answered the ad. The rest is rock 'n' roll history.
He was just a boy from the Bronx with stars in his eyes. But when he picked up his guitar and painted stars on his face, Ace Frehley transformed into "The Spaceman"--and helped turn KISS into one of the top-selling bands in the world. Now, for the first time, the beloved rock icon reveals his side of the story with no-holds-barred honesty . . . and no regrets.
For KISS fans, Ace offers a rare behind-the-makeup look at the band's legendary origins, including the lightning-bolt logo he designed and the outfits his mother sewed. He talks about the unspoken division within the band--he and Peter Criss versus Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons--because the other two didn't "party every day." Ace also reveals the inside story behind his turbulent breakup with KISS, their triumphant reunion a decade later, and his smash solo career. Along the way, he shares wild stories about dancing at Studio 54 with "The Bionic Woman," working as a roadie for Jimi Hendrix, and bar-flying all night with John Belushi. In the end, he comes to terms with his highly publicized descent into alcohol, drugs, and self-destruction--ultimately managing to conquer his demons and come out on top.
This is Ace Frehley.
No makeup.
No apologies.
No regrets.

I myself have been a KISS fan for over 30 years and of course ACE was my favorite member, even though I am not a guitar player, but a musician none the less, and even though the book does jump around a bit like I have read in other reviews, it does answer a lot of questions why the band had a hard time staying together through the years. I am not going to say anymore because I don't want to ruin it for other readers of this in my opinion great book.

I am NOT what you would call a reader. I'll occasionally look at a magazine in the Doctors office but that's about it. My girlfriend reads in bed every night and I decided to look for a book that would keep my interest long enough to finish it. I am a rocker and a HUGE KISS fan so this book is perfect. It is easy to read and it definately keeps my attention. When I finish it (I'm almost done) I will look at other music biographies and autobiographies. One last thing, the price was better here than at Amazon.

I've been a KISS fan since the 70's and I have collected KISS memorabilia since I joined the KISS ARMY back in 79 and Ace's book is a definite must have for any Ace / KISS fan / collector! Buy it, you'll have "No Regrets"!!!

Ace talks about more things than the 2 past books of his other bandmates, Gene and Peter.
