In today's episode of Music business Facts I am lucky enough to briefly speak with legendary and influential guitarist Ace Frehley- The original (and best) space man from rock Gods KISS.

This is obviously an interesting episode of MBF because Ace doesn't care too much to talk about music business or money- preferring to outsource that stuff to his lawyers and personal assistances. 

Nonetheless it's still a super exciting episode where we discuss things like royalties, trademarks, merchandise, relationships with Gene and Paul and more. Enjoy
