ACE FREHLEY Welcomes Back Drummer SCOT COOGAN For 'Space Invader' Tour

According to VegasNews.com, drummer Scot Coogan will return to Ace Frehley's band this fall, along with THE CULT's Chris Wyse, to tour in support of the original KISS guitarist's new album, "Space Invader", which debuted at No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart, selling around 19,000 copies in its first week of release.

"I consider Ace a friend, and I will always be his drummer," Scot said. "When he called me last week about doing shows, I was honored. We are both excited to have the chance to play together once again."

Coogan played with Frehley for five years until 2012 when he left Ace's band to focus on other projects. He has since toured and recorded with LYNCH MOB and sat behind the kit for Lita Ford on the 2012 "Rock Of Ages" tour with DEF LEPPARD and POISON.

Coogan recently completed work on the debut album from RED ZONE RIDER, a three-piece band also featuring world-class guitar hero Vinnie Moore (UFO) and vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Kelly Keeling. RED ZONE RIDER's self-titled CD will be made available on September 16 via Magna Carta.

Matt Starr, the featured drummer on "Space Invader", will spend the next few months touring with MR. BIG as the replacement for Pat Torpey, who has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
