ACE FREHLEY's Real-Life 'Spinal Tap' Story (Video)

In the one-minute clip below, original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley recounts a real-life "Spinal Tap" story to Ultimate Classic Rock.

"I remember once we were on tour, and I woke up in Canada," Ace recalled. "I had dinner in Texas, and then we ended up in Mexico City, because we had a stadium show the next [day] It was, like, three different countries in one day — breakfast in Canada, lunch in the U.S. and having dinner… And then I get to my hotel, and in my lobby was this really cute Mexican model, and she had blonde hair. Very rare in Mexico; most women have dark hair. So I invited her up to my room, and within an hour, we were having sex. And I look on the TV, and she's on the TV in a commercial, like, for some car or something. I just thought that was so bizarre. I was with this girl having sex with her and she's on the television doing a car commercial. Go figure."

Frehley will release "Space Invader", his first new solo album in five years, via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) on June 24. The CD, which will be released in Europe on July 7 through SPV/Steamhammer, will include at least nine brand new original songs as well as a cover of Steve Miller's "The Joker". This album is the first release under Frehley's new universal deal on eOne Music. Joining Frehley in the studio for some of the "Space Invader" sessions were drummer Matt Starr (BURNING RAIN) and bassist Chris Wyse (THE CULT, OWL).
