Legendary ex-KISS guitarist ACE FREHLEY offers up his sixth solo studio effort entitled “Space Invader” in 2014 and longtime fans of Spaceman will not be let down by this rocking collection of twelve cuts. Ace is at the helm of the production and his guitar work is blazing as ever. The lineup also includes Matt Starr on drums and Chris Wyse on Bass.

If you recall how fantastic ...
