Wikipedia

Paul Daniel "Ace" Frehley (/ˈfrli/; born April 27, 1951) is an American musician best known as the former lead guitarist and founding member of the rock band Kiss. He took on the persona of the "Spaceman" or "Space Ace", and played with the group from its inception in 1973 until his departure in 1982. After leaving Kiss, Frehley embarked on a solo career, which was put on hold when he rejoined Kiss in 1996 for a highly successful reunion tour.

His second tenure with Kiss lasted until 2002, when he left at the conclusion of what was originally purported to be the band's Farewell Tour. His most recent solo album Space Invader, was released on August 19, 2014. Guitar World magazine ranked him as the 14th Greatest Metal Guitarist of All Time. His solos often incorporate the major pentatonic scale and the usage of vibratos. Outside of Kiss, Ace Frehley has continued to be commercially successful, with his first solo album going platinum. Ace Frehley is also known for the use of many "whimsical" guitars, including a Gibson Les Paul guitar which emits smoke from the middle humbucker pickup and produces 360 degrees spinning pyrotechnics as well as a custom Les Paul that can emit light depending on the tempo of the song being played.
