From Jeff Beck to The Who, Ace Frehley opens up in a new interview with Goldmine Mag
Ace Frehley, the legendary guitarist of the band KISS, shares the ten albums that have had the most significant impact on his life and musical career.
"As a kid growing up in the Bronx during the '60s, it's not hard to imagine the records that shaped a young (Ace) Frehley's mind," says Goldmine Mag, "to be sure, there was a lot of British Invasion, psych-rock, and generally rock and roll debauchery that undoubtedly imprinted itself on the aspiring guitarist."
The list includes classic rock and blues records that have inspired Frehley's playing style, such as Jimi Hendrix's "Are You Experienced," Cream's "Wheels of Fire," and Led Zeppelin's 1969 self-titled debut album.
"I've said it before, and I think we all know that Jimmy Page is one of my favorite guitar players," says Ace Frehley, "this album greatly impacted me as a kid growing up in the Bronx. I love all of Zeppelin's records, that's the blueprint of rock and roll right there. But the first does it for me the most."
Through his list, Ace Frehley highlights the importance of music in shaping one's artistry and creative vision.
