Ace Frehley’s House Burns Like a Sick Lick

Ace Frehley’s house caught fire and burned up over the weekend. His property in upstate New York has been in the news lately since the former KISS guitarist hasn’t paid on his home loan or taxes in a couple years and the bank was set to foreclose. Just one of those weird spontaneous combustion coincidences I guess. When Ace left the band more than thirty years ago to pursue a solo career, there was probably no way to know that someday he’d need KISS money to make basic mortgage payments. I guess he did count on matches always being free. So that worked out alright.

    There was a guy posing as a homeless Peter Criss and Roseanne and Tom Arnold took him in. The real Peter Criss pointed out that he gets a fourth of all the KISS royalties and never has to work again if he doesn’t want to. Same deal with Ace (not to mention the further KISS money he made in 1996-2001 when they reunited.) If he is letting the house foreclose it’s likely because he didn’t want the house anymore, not because he’s broke.
