Happy birthday, Ace Frehley...
Born Paul Daniel Frehley on April 27 1951 in The Bronx, New York, United States, Ace Frehley is a musician best known as the former lead guitarist and founding member of the rock band Kiss (original lineup: Ace Frehley (lead guitar, vocals), Paul Stanley (rhythm guitar, lead vocals), Gene Simmons (bass guitar, lead vocals), Peter Criss (drums, vocals)).
When he was a teenager, Ace Frehley was in a New York street gang called The Duckies with Steven Edward Duren (aka Blackie Lawless).
With the group, he took on the persona of the "Spaceman" or "Space Ace".
He was in Kiss from 1973 to 1982. In December 1982, Kiss began the Creatures of the Night tour without Frehley: he was replaced by Vinnie Vincent.
After leaving Kiss, he started a solo career.
In 1996,  Frehley rejoined Kiss for a reunion tour, on which all four original members of the band performed live together for the first time since original drummer's Peter Criss departure in 1980.
His latest album, Anomaly, was released on September 15, 2009.
He was ranked 14th Greatest Metal Guitarist of All Time by Guitar World magazine.
In 2009, in an interview with Rock N Roll Experience Magazine, Ace stated, "I'm an anomaly, I'm an un-schooled musician, I don't know how to read music, but I'm one of the most famous guitar players in the world, so go figure."
To conclude, we wish a happy birthday and years of rock to Ace Frehley!
