Today’s Blimp Time-Hop
Happy Birthday today to Paul Daniel Frehley! Born and raised in the Bronx, Paul is of course famous for being the original lead guitarist and founding member of the classic line-up of Kiss.
The Kiss Army calls him Ace and his Kiss character was the “Spaceman” from 1973 to 1982. He was back in Kiss for the ridiculously huge reunion tour in 1996 and remained a member until 2002 on their “Farewell” tour. Ace Frehley is 67 today.
We count 6 Maine shows with the classic Kiss line-up over the years...four at the Civic Center, one in Bangor and one in Augusta. Did you see any with Ace, Peter, Paul, and Gene?
Here's what they played at Augusta Civic Center back in 1976.
Ace has just announced a new solo album will be coming this year. Here's our favorite solo Ace performed at the Brooklyn Bridge!
Here's another one we've got to watch again. It's the short-lived Dunkin Donuts commercial featuring Ace in the boardroom plugged in and with pyro! "I'll give ya the PNL statement!" Friggin' gold!
