According to The Journal News, original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley is continuing to fight a foreclosure action on on his home in Yorktown in Northern Westchester County, New York, 35 miles from New York City.
A June 11 foreclosure conference has been scheduled at the Westchester County Courthouse in White Plains regarding Frehley‘s home, the $735,000 mortgage on which the guitarist reportedly stopped paying on March 1, 2011.
U.S. Bank National Association filed a mortgage foreclosure case in February, asking the court to order a sale of the home — which sits on 3.01 acres and has two floors, three bedrooms and three bathrooms — to pay for the outstanding principal of $703,581.48 plus interest, late charges and other expenses.
Frehley was transferred ownership to the property in 2004 by Jendell Productions, which bought the home in November 2000 for $650,000.
Jendell is the name of the fictional home planet for Frehley‘s extraterrestrial “Spaceman” stage character, who wore silver face paint and black lipstick.
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.
Ace‘s latest album, “Anomaly”, was released on September 15, 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.
