Shock Me

Ace Frehley

By 1977 "Shock Me" had become the location for Ace's guitar solo in live performances. According to Ace the solo was, "Kind of planned out. I basically did the same solo every night, with minor alterations. You know, I can remember going to shows as a little kid and watching guitar players who played their solos exactly the way they did on the album, and that always impressed me. I don't like guitar players who try to be cool and play something completely different from what's on the album, and I don't think the fans want that. To me, when you change a solo, it's almost like changing the lyrics of a song, and I think it disappoints the fans" (Guitar World Legends #14, 1992).
