Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley was interviewed on the “Today” show this morning (Thursday, November 3) about “No Regrets: A Rock ‘N’ Roll Memoir”, a look back at his “life of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll,” which came out on November 1 via Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon Schuster. You can now watch video footage of his appearance below.
“No Regrets”, which was published under Gallery‘s VH1 Books imprint, 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.
Layden recently worked on MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine‘s autobiography, “Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir”.
An excerpt from the first chapter of “No Regrets” can be found at the SimonAndSchuster.com web site.

Jennifer Bergstrom, Vice President, Editor-in-Chief of Gallery Books, said “‘No Regrets’ is sure to be the next must-read rock-and-roll memoir.”
Commented Frehley: “I think Sinatra said it best… ‘Regrets I’ve had a few, but then again, too few to mention.'”
One of the most popular rock guitarists of the 1970s, Frehley became an inspiration to a generation of guitarists with his lead-guitar prowess and atmospheric Les Paul sound.
Frehley performed with KISS from its inception in 1973 until his first departure in 1982 before rejoining KISS in 1996 for a very successful reunion tour. Frehley‘s second stint lasted until 2002 as Ace went back to being a solo artist again, but the stories and memories still remain from touring in one of rock and roll’s most successful acts of all time.
