ACE FREHLEY Says He Has 'A Couple Of Chapters Written' For His Next Book

Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley spoke to The Rock Pit about the planned sequel to his autobiography "No Regrets: A Rock 'N' Roll Memoir", which came out in 2011.

"I have a couple of chapters written," he said. "It'll be along the same lines as the first one."

He continued: "I don't believe in bashing people. I don't believe in a lot of negativity, so most of the stories in the book are going to be about me: funny stories and funny situations on the road, all stories about me in the Bronx growing up, and so on and so forth.

"There wasn't much in the first book about the FREHLEY'S COMET years, and there's plenty of stories along those lines, there's still plenty of KISS stories, and plenty of stories of me growing up. I probably have enough stories for five books."

Asked if he puts aside time to write or if something just comes to mind and he jots it down as he goes, Frehley said: "Every day I wake up and I remember something else that I completely forgot about.

"You know, I just turned 63; I've lived a lot in my life.

"The latest thing was I was just talking to my fiancée, Rachel, about the time I went over to John McEnroe's house, the famous tennis player, and I remembered something. I'll have to give John a call and document it for my next book… It's going to be as good [as], if not better than, the first book."

"No Regrets: A Rock 'N' Roll Memoir" landed at position No. 10 on the New York Times "Hardcover Nonfiction" best sellers list. The book, which was described as a look back at Ace's "life of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll," arrived on November 1, 2011 via Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

"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.

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.
