I can't bring myself to rip on Scarlet. He's a tryer and the work ethic is right there. By most accounts he's a nice guy too.

It's the disinterested "performers" that I can't stand, these days.

Richie is cool- known him for a very long time.
He keeps coming back to the Frehley fold, it would be nice to see him with the AceMeister again. Sucks the way he was let go, especially right after his wife passed away. Classy Ace......

That looks like the cheapest fabric you can buy. In fact, it looks like those Halloween costumes you can buy in a bag at specialty stores.

He always looks like a homeless person.

I dont mind his Plead The Fifth solo album

I met him back middle of last decade when he toured with Ace Frehleys solo band. Really nice guy, I mentioned KISSFAQ to the guys at the time, and that RIchie was preferred by some fans over Tod in Frehleys Comet.

The one thing that surprised me at the time, was that Ace travelled separately to his band. They were in economy class, and he was apparently travelling 1st class on a later flight. He was with Rachel still back then.

I'd prefer Todd, thanks. Something Moved is lightyears better than "2 Young 2 Die." Why he is singing on an Ace solo album (and not a Frehley's Comet or other band sort of release) is beyond me.

He seems like a genuinely lovely bloke. You can't dislike him. He's got passion for rock music - which is very much needed around these parts lately!

He's a nice guy met him in Indy once after an Ace show me and my Ex-wife went to, but he did seem more interested in two girls that were hanging out by the bar.

I didn't think Ace would fly 1st class.

Like T13 said, Gene's band is/was cheaper...and Gene also told Ace that Richie was upstaging him by putting effort into his performance and acting like a guy in an entertaining band rather than just standing there with his thumb up his ass. It seems Ace also felt like him listening to everything Gene said bode well for him getting his KISS gig back.

Or maybe underneath that poisoned commentary about the group hating each other they actually have a damn lot more respect for each others opinions than us fans would think.

This. I would never throw crap at someone who tries to make a living in rock. I'd rather take someone doing what they love, over someone going through the motions.

I heard that somewhere too,and it always made me wonder: He couldn't have been making that much money over those years,unless it was from Kiss related stuff. I mean,he played small places and albums didn't sell. How much money could he have been pulling in after expenses etc?

I forget where the clip was from, but it showed the inside of Scarlett's apartment (in the East New York neighborhood in Brooklyn - not the safest neighborhood) and he has a massive horror and sci-fi memorabilia collection that must be worth a fortune. Much props for his good taste. I do wonder however where the money came from to pay for it all. He must have a rent-controlled apartment.

He was making 10k after expenses and paying the band? Or 10k for everyone to split?

I mean,really,he was playing small places. It couldn't have generated that much money could it have? He was flying first class too? Wtf

He was making 10k after expenses and paying the band? Or 10k for everyone to split?

I mean,really,he was playing small places. It couldn't have generated that much money could it have? He was flying first class too? Wtf
Not exactly sure how much tickets are for an Ace show are but if he plays to 500 people at $40 each plus the bar take that's likely to be about $25K.

I doubt his band are paid more than $250-350 each a show.

I dont mind his Plead The Fifth solo album

I met him back middle of last decade when he toured with Ace Frehleys solo band. Really nice guy, I mentioned KISSFAQ to the guys at the time, and that RIchie was preferred by some fans over Tod in Frehleys Comet.

The one thing that surprised me at the time, was that Ace travelled separately to his band. They were in economy class, and he was apparently travelling 1st class on a later flight. He was with Rachel still back then.
I heard that somewhere too,and it always made me wonder: He couldn't have been making that much money over those years,unless it was from Kiss related stuff. I mean,he played small places and albums didn't sell. How much money could he have been pulling in after expenses etc?
I say $10k a show and $100,000 per album.

I believe a lot of the time he was breaking even on the guarantee after paying the band. Or even going in the red on some shows that his β€˜guarantee’ was 100% of the gate.

Like on these...

Ace Frehley, Enuff Z’nuff
The Marquee, Tempe, AZ
January 27, 2017
Reported audience: 372 / 500 (74.4%)
Reported gross: $6,643

I believe when it’s all said and done, he gets his guarantee, pays the band, then takes in the Meet & Greets plus merch...he’s putting 10K in his pocket.

Ace took on Gene’s band
But people said he was going to get back into Kiss if he took Gene's band.
yes that was the rumor and I do believe there was validity to that "rumor".
Ace has been playing nicey nice with them to get something going on with the tour.
Peter won't have any of it.

He keeps coming back to the Frehley fold, it would be nice to see him with the AceMeister again. Sucks the way he was let go, especially right after his wife passed away. Classy Ace......
Well, dying wife or not...

Richie had to go.

Ace...try cutting coupons instead of band members over cost.
