He was the man with the rocket firing guitar. Dubbed the Space Ace, the coolest member of 70s rock gods Kiss and a man who attracted a legion of fan followers of his own for reasons both good and bad. Ace's devilishly potent guitar playing lent Kiss a sense of purpose and ambition that elevated them from amusing comic book crusaders to seriously dangerous heavy metal heroes. As with most things in life it couldn't last. Down but not out, Ace left Kiss in 1982 to pursue a solo career, one that was eagerly anticipated by legions of fans keen to sample his razor sharp riffs and quirky song writing in a brand new setting. With two successful albums recorded under the banner of Frehley's Comet, Ace retired the band moniker in favour of a solo outing for album #3, the amusingly titled Trouble Walkin .

Issued in late 1989, the album reunited Ace with veteran Kiss Producer Eddie Kramer helping to craft a record of high grade hard rock with all the accoutrements that you might reasonably expect from such a maverick character. With titles such as Shot Full Of Rock , Five Card Stud , Hide Your Heart , 2 Young To Die and a brilliantly creative cover of ELO's Do Ya , Ace unloads salvo upon salvo of lighting fast licks and twisted riffs proving that his talent was as explosive as ever. Track listing: Shot Full Of Rock; Do Ya; Five Card Stud; Hide Your Heart; Lost In Limbo; Trouble Walkin'; 2 Young 2 Die; Back To School; Remember Me; Fractured III
