ACE FREHLEY: 'My Voice Hasn't Changed, Unlike Other Members Of KISS'

On Friday, April 11, former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley visited Billboard for a video interview to reflect on the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame experience, reveal his least favorite KISS album, discuss his upcoming solo album, "Space Invader", due in June, and more. You can watch the chat at

"Space Invader" is due June 24 on eOne Music. While the final track listing hasn't been announced yet, the album will contain a cover of "The Joker" by THE STEVE MILLER BAND.

"There's going to be a real interesting instrumental, there's gonna be some catchy riff songs, there's gonna be some straight-ahead rockers and everything in between," Ace told Billboard. "The only real guests I have [are] Chris Wyse from THE CULT and my drummer Matt Starr, who I used on my last U.S. tour. And pretty much I'm playing all the instruments and doing all the lead vocals. I'm a one-man show."

He added: "I've been playing some rough mixes [of 'Space Invader'] for friends. The first remark out of them is, 'Wow, your vocals sound like they did on the '78 record.' My voice hasn't changed, unlike other members of KISS. Got a little dig in there, Paul."
