Video footage of original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley falling off stage while playing his guitar solo on October 26 during the second of his two headlining performances at the B.B. King Blues Club Grill in New York City can be viewed below (Frehley‘s fall occurs around the 2:48 mark).
Ace‘s current solo touring band includes Scot Coogan (drums, vocals), Anthony Esposito (bass, vocals) and Todd Youth (guitar).
Frehley‘s latest solo album, “Anomaly”, sold around 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 27 on The Billboard 200 chart.
In addition to the standard CD release, unique “Anomaly” packages were made available at Wal-Mart and Best Buy locations. The Wal-Mart version includes an Ace autographed tattoo while the Best Buy edition is printed on silver stock, like the KISS “Double Platinum” album.
Released in September 2009 via Ace‘s own Bronx Born Records, with Rocket Science providing a full label service platform in the U.S., “Anomaly” was produced and recorded in Westchester County, New York between 2007 and 2009 and was mixed in Los Angeles.
Ace Frehley will release “No Regrets: A Rock ‘N’ Roll Memoir”, a look back at his “life of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll” on November 1 via Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon Schuster. Gallery plans to publish the 288-page title under the VH1 Books imprint.
“No Regrets” was co-written by New York Times journalist Joe Layden who also authored “The Last Great Fight” about what is considered by many to be the biggest upset in the history of boxing: James “Buster” Douglas‘ tenth-round knockout win over Mike Tyson in 1990.
