Biography

Formed in 1983 by guitarist and singer-songwriter Ace Frehley after his departure from group Kiss, Frehley’s Comet proved a platter of arena-made tunes before folding, perhaps never breaking into the mainstream quite as they could have. Along with Richie Scarlet (guitars, vocals), John Regan (bass) and Anton Fig (drums), demos were recorded and soon a contract was signed. Yet the record company went bankrupt, so they had to start all over again searching for a new contract.

The self-titled debut album was finally released in 1987, and, by that time, Richie Scarlet had been replaced by Tod Howarth. Spawing the top 30 rock hit “Into the Night”, that successful album was followed by the live EP ‘Live +1’ and later by the full length studio album ‘Second Sighting’ in 1988. Anton Fig had a full-time gig with the Late Night with David Letterman studio band, and he had been replaced by Jamie Oldaker on drums.

In 1989, the album ‘Trouble Walkin’’ was released. This album was released as a solo album by Ace Frehley because of the change to a rougher sound and music style. Still. the band behind the release was the original line-up of Frehley’s Comet. At any rate, Frehley’s Comet as a band was no more.

    Well, imho, there would be no band without Tod Howarth and his AWESOME songs... so it wouldn't be so nice to call "Frehley's Comet" a solo-project of Ace... at least not 100% :) Ace is cooler than cool, but there's no fun without Tod.

    You should scrobble Second Sighting and Live+1 songs as Frehley's Comet and others with Ace Frehley 'cause they are the artist / band which released them. Even though Ace changed his solo project name to Frehley's Comet shortly after the Frehley's Comet album it was released as his solo album and should be scrobbled under his name. And he switched it back to his own solo project before releasing Trouble Walking.
