Re: Ace Frehley Autograph Signing - No guitars, or pickguards...

I've heard of him doing this before... You can go see Les Paul and have him sign things for free, but Ace... Grrr. That's alright. I've already have some stuff signed.

Ace can be a bit of a dick, but I guess his manager could be the culprit. You never know what kind of mood the spaceman will be in...

Charging for autographs? Is he going to pay me to listen to his music?

Before he rejoined Kiss, he was playing a local club, and was charging $50 for an autograph.



Take care,
Ace (no relation)

it ruins it for the fans, but you have all these ebayers out there making money off Ace/Kiss stuff. So i dont blame him, it is just the washed up athletes who do the same.

The people that are just getting things signed for profit, do ruin it.
I always wanted to have my LP signed by Ace, oh well...
Luckily, Slash was more than happy to sign mine. (He even played it for a few minutes, before signing it.)

And there's no reason why Ace shouldn't do the same. He has fans that love him, but he's always treated them like shit pretty much. I met him once, but he was trashed and I guess in a pretty good mood. I didn't ask him to sign anything. You probably couldn't have read it if I did!

Re: Ace Frehley Autograph Signing - No guitars, or pickguards...

I met him on the first Frehley's comet tour. You know, his first "sober" tour. Well, he was rip-roaring drunk, but was in a good mood. He signed my Kiss Originals LP, and a few others. I gave him some "Ace" pins ("I'm a card, I ought to be dealt with" etc.) He seemed to like them. Maybe it was the booze.

I have his Guitar Player poster from that time signed by Ace, Anton!, Todd, and John. It's framed and very cool. It was a gift for helping someone out a few years ago. Anyway, I don't need anything else.

Met Slash a few times..ALWAYS a class act...VERY fan friendly!!! Met Ace a few times too....was pleasant (and drunk) when I met him but was a real prick to a lot of others that were there (NAMM). These guys, just like sports stars, need to remember that it's the fans that make you!
Slash seems to be very appreciative of the fans! As do the other members of KISS (Paul, Gene AND Peter). Some people may think Gene is a total dickhead...and I agree sometimes he appears that way..BUT.....he and Paul have ALWAYS been very gracious to the fans!!!!
Just my .02!!!

I wouldn't say "Always," regarding Gene. I had the opposite experience. Perhaps if I wasn't the only male standing in line for autographs, he would have been nicer...

I hope nobody actually pays that washed up bastard for a scribble. F him. I would never be like that if I were rich and famous. I'd love to see people like that have everything their fans have given them taken away.

Have you guys seen the "Kiss Coffee Shops"? They have one in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Nastiest coffee I ever drank.

Re: Ace Frehley Autograph Signing - No guitars, or pickguards...

My friend worked the Mick Taylor table at Chiller a few years back. Lots of fun with fans. Sure he charged for autographs, but that's where they make thei money at these things. I've bought lots of autographs for ten dollars each from a number of gusts. Jonathan Harris needed water so I gave him a cold bottle I had with me. These folks are just humans interacting with fans and trying to keep some undeclared income coming in.

I guess if a Kiss-has been charges for a sig, he's that much worse than when Mick Taylor or Kane Hodder does the same?

Chiller is has-been ally. The last stop before the glue factory. But it's fun.
I had tables there for 13 years straight.

I don't have a problem with charging for autographs at a convention. That's the whole point of the artist going there.

I guess it depends on which convention.....isn't the NAMM show a place where these celebrity musicians are brought in to HELP SELL the gear that they actually (or supposedly) use? Just asking......

If your charging 50 or so bux for an autograph I think your prolly no longer so rich. Or its a principle thing. Maybe he feels a bit used. Either way I would have to really be moved by someone to pay for an autograph.

Autographs should be $10.00 that is fair.

That is more than fair.

If Ace Frehley (or any other rock star) is worried about people selling their autographs on ebay, why don't they do it themselves?

That is so cool. I'd love to have a slash or someone of his caliber hold or play my Lp even for a minute.

I read somewhere that Chuck Berry only signs like one autograph a year.I wouldn't be surprised if that lucky guy didn't have to pay for it.Some people think there the SHIT ,and thats why I don't buy any of there shit.

Ace doesn't need money. He made countless more millions than he ever did the first time around. I dunno about him, but it would very difficult for me to blow that much... I don't think he'll ever rejoin KISS either. Why would he?!? He has always hated it.

I'll join KISS and do a better job than Tommy Thayer. I know a couple more guys who could do the same. As soon as Gene tells me to get his coffee, it's all over....

Disgruntled KISS fan signing off..
