Ace Frehley, No Regrets, A Rock 'N' Roll Memoir


No Regrets is at it's basic a sex, drugs and rock and roll book. With plenty of great stories about the band KISS. 
Not only is "Space Ace" an accomplished guitarist/singer/songwriter/performer/inventor, now Ace is also a published author. 
Great Book! Finally got around to scanning this book cover, been meaning to for awhile.
I did not review the book on purpose to peak your interest, to hopefully get you out to a bookstore or a library to go out and get a copy to read for yourself.

Check out www.andyirvinegroup.com to learn more about Andy, his new CD and where Andy's new Warwick bass in-store tour will take him next. Thank You Andy!
