Rocket Ride

Written by Ace Frehley and Sean Delaney during the Japanese Tour of 1977. This was the only new studio song on "Alive II" on which he would perform. The song apparently didn't include Gene, with Ace handling the bass duties himself. "Rocket Ride" was a song that Ace was considering using for a solo album after it was rejected while "Love Gun" was being recorded. "Rocket Ride" was the second single issued in support of the "Alive II" album, backed with the "live" recording of "Tomorrow And Tonight." It provided Ace with a top-40 hit when it reached #34 on the Billboard singles charts, and probably went some way towards improving Ace's confidence in his skills as a songwriter and performer. The single was one of the bands highest charting in the United States yet was never performed by the original line-up live.
