Busy Future for Ace Frehley
Ace is opening for Sammy Hagar at the Catfish Race Concert on August 4th. He's doing some other shows this summer, but he's spending most of his time on his 2nd memoir. It'll be the follow up to "No Regrets: A Rock 'N' Roll Memoir," which is his first memoir from 2011.

“Writing that book ["No Regrets"] opened the floodgates and put me in contact with a lot of people I haven’t spoken to in a while,” Frehley tells The Oakland Press. “A lot of stories came up I had forgotten about, and there were a lot of stories I came across too late. I’ve spoken with a couple of my old bodyguards, roadies and stuff; they helped me with the first book and they’re helping with stories for the second book, too.”
“I’m having more fun now than I was way back then because now, in a sober state, I remember what I do,”he adds. “That’s a nice feeling, to wake up the following day and remember what you did the day before. It wasn’t like that for a long time.”

“I like running my own life now,” Ace explains. “One of the things that made me crazy when I was in Kiss was being at the mercy of Paul (Stanley) and Gene (Simmons), who were like workaholic. They wanted to tour constantly and record constantly, over-merchandise the brand, and that made me crazy. I’m not a kid any more. Touring constantly can be very exhausting. I don’t want to put myself in that position, so I’m happier with what I’m doing now.”
