No. 11: Ace Frehley’s Various Misfortunes


Leave it to Ace Frehley to write a book about his time in Kiss and title it -- what else? -- 'No Regrets.' In the tome, he recalls some bad-luck moments he has endured -- like almost drowning on two separate occasions. One such event happened poolside while on tour in Florida and drunkenly falling in, only to be fished out by Gene Simmons.

Then there was the time Ace was nearly electrocuted after touching an ungrounded metal railing while on tour in 1976 in Lakeland, Fla. Despite the shock, he returned 30 minutes later and managed to finish the show. The incident inspired the 1977 Kiss song 'Shock Me.'
