When Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) hit the Casbah on May 15, 2012, with his UFO tribute band, Flight To Mars, which includes Seattle mates Tim DiJulio (guitar), Gary Westlake (bass), Mike Musburger (drums) and Paul Passereli (vocals), the crowd got a special treat when Ace Frehley showed up, to jam on Kiss' "Black Diamond." It turns out Frehley had recently moved to San Diego, where he moved in with local singer Rachel Gordon, who turned up on his next solo album.
The former Kiss guitarist toured Australia and New Zealand in 2015, beginning April 24 (his first-ever New Zealand solo shows), with a band that includes guitarist Richie Scarlett, bassist Chris Wyse, and drummer Scot Coogan.
