One report in 2007 said the guitarist was dead. A couple new ones include a divorce with his wife of more than 30 years and having to stop using his famous smoking guitar (as reported by Rolling Stone). Ace puts those rumors to rest in our interview – click below to listen.He also revealed that he stopped recording his new album last year to tour and show the world that he could still play – a rumor started by Gene Simmons, who has been taking stabs at the spaceman lately.Ace describes the new album as similar to the first couple Ace Frehley albums, although a bit heavier.
