American guitarist best known as an original member and lead guitarist for the     
rock band Kiss founded by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. He took on the persona

the group from its inception in 1973 until his departure in 1982.                   
After leaving Kiss, Frehley embarked on a moderately successful solo career,       
which was put on hold when he rejoined Kiss in 1996 for a highly successful         
reunion tour. His second tenure with Kiss lasted until 2002, when he left at the   
conclusion of the band's Farewell Tour. He has since resumed his solo career       
although to date, he has not released any new music.
