History & Biography
The Kiss guitarist founded his 'solo' project while still with the NYC glam rockers. Hiring well-respected studio musicians and song writers (the Russ Ballard-composed New York Groove hit the Billboard top 20), Frehley was already well on his way when he had to retire from Kiss in 1983 due to drug addiction.
