KISS: First look at Ace Frehley autobiography

In less than a week, music fans will have their hands on the latest rock n roll autobiography – this one from original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley.

“No Regrets: A Rock N’ Roll Memoir,” will be out November 1. Co-written by New York Times journalist Joe Layden, the book is being billed as “a funny, truthful, candid memoir about a hard-drinking, drug-addicted, music-loving guitar player who lived life as a rock star and survived to tell the tale.”

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, with Ace returning to his solo career.

As one of the architects of KISS, Ace not only contributed musically, but he was also the man responsible for designing the legendary KISS logo, among other things.

Publishers Simon & Schuster are offering Frehley fans a first look at some of the new book, as they are sharing an excerpt: Chapter 1 – entitled “A Bronx Tale.”

Check out the preview here.

Ace starts a nationwide book signing tour on November 3 with a midday appearance in New York at Barnes & Noble on 5th Avenue – for a list of dates, click here.
