My First Obsession: Ace Frehley Talks Love for Jimi Hendrix Album

When asked to reveal one of his very first obsessions, Kiss frontman Ace Frehley didn't hesitate to shout out the legendary Jimi Hendrix.

The guitarist told Fuse that he grew up in awe of The Jimi Hendrix Experience's Are You Experienced album and used to carry the record around in high school.

"Then in 1970, I ended up roadieing for Jimi Hendrix at Randall's Island Peace Concert. The whole day was a very surreal day. I had snuck backstage, and next thing you know, I'm setting up Mitch Mitchell's drums!" Frehley says.
