Kiss Kollector Online has posted the following recap of original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley's at the third annual Sober Teens Festival on Sunday (Oct. 16) at Carmel High School in Carmel, New York:
"[On Sunday], Ace Frehley visited the annual Sober Teens Festival at Carmel High School in Carmel, NY, to co-sign contracts of teenagers who signed a contract to remain sober until they’re 21 years old. Obviously, Ace's appearance attracted some KISS fans. A handful of fans showed up to meet Ace, and got a few items signed by the original Spaceman. The contract signing took place at the Celebrity Stage from 1 – 4:30 p.m., with Ace showing up around 2 p.m. Ace and bodyguard arrived in a limo at the back of the school, and once Ace got out of the car he signed a dozen items before heading for the Celebrity Stage. When Ace was done co-signing the teenagers' contracts, he casually walked out of the school to be picked up by the limo again. Before he drove off, he signed some more KISS items for the few fans present."
Early last year, Kiss Kollector Online reported that the former KISS axe slinger had seriously started focusing on getting and staying clean and sober again — and that he had already stayed away from the party scene at that point for over half a year. Frehley has now reportedly managed to stay sober for about two years and has kept a low profile for all that time. He only popped up once in a while here and there — including jamming with PEARL JAM very recently.
