Ace Frehley released “Space Invader”, his first new solo album in five years, earlier this June. The CD included nine brand new original songs as well as a cover of Steve Miller’s “The Joker” and was heralded as one of the best solo albums ever by a KISS Member.
In the one-minute clip below, 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,” Frehley 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.”
