Top Ten Best Ace Frehley Solos


The Top Ten

1 Strange Ways

I thought brontosaurus were extinct. How did ace get one to guest on this solo?

This solo never ceases to amaze me.

effects all around with a monster sound - invis

2 Love Her All I Can

one of his best "technical" solos combined with his emotion sound - invis

3 Snowblind
4 Rocket Ride

A killer wah-wah solo (very rare for Ace) that is played with both passion and laser-like precision. Just a glimpse of Ace's brilliance when he was sober, and why many of today's younger guitar heroes hold him in such high regard.

This is ace showing rick derringer (or who ever plays on the other songs on this album side) how its done..

5 Parasite

blistering also has his trademark vibrato - invis

Pure evil from start to finish

6 Shock Me

His best solo, speed, tone and fire. Here Thayer try to replicate and you appreciate it's technical complexity

I don't know what half of the people on here are listening to, but the majority of the songs on this list aren't even sung by Ace.

the one everyone has heard of - invis

Captures the live vibe.

7 Deuce
8 Makin Love
9 Let Me Go, Rock N Roll

The live version on Alive. My God, you think he just got off, but then he licks it with sweetness and intensity towards the end of the piece. My boggling yet awe inspiring. Makes me want to air guitar. Definitely one of the greatest solos by Ace.

10 Rip It Out

The Contenders

11 Calling Doctor Love

I mean... for heaven sakes, I get #%@! Just listening to it. You know for sure there is a God, I no longer consider myself a virgin. Rock on!


12 I'm In Need Of Love

underrated solo combines speed and music sense - invis

13 Ozone

one of my favorite songs by him - invis

14 Dark Light

Since it is about best solos, this one should probably be in the top ten. The song is ok, but the Anton Fig drums and solo are really quite fluid. I wonder if he can still even play this fast?

15 Detroit Rock City

Well-executed by both Ace & Paul.

I'm almost sure I read that ACE said ( that's not me! ) l am cool with it... they sure as hell tried to make a ace of it! RKN.

16 New York Groove
17 The Acorn Is Spinning

frehleys comet song I think he was at his all time best here about when he peaked as a guitarist - invis

18 Fractured Mirror
19 Love Gun

Simple and impressive at the same time.

The best! Sounds great!


20 Two Sides of the Coin

Why isn't this song on here considering a lot of the songs on here aren't even sung by Ace.

21 Almost Human

shows off his great abiity to create sound - invis

22 Words are Not Enough

Forgotten or obscure track from his Live +1 release. Amazing tone, approach, and style. After all, Ace was all about style and what fit the song. The master of that

23 Cold Gin
24 Comin Home

Not so much a solo as great fluidly melodic guitar lines throughout, and this song is one of three co-writes that Ace has on the great Hotter Than Hell album, along with Parasite and Strange Ways.
