Former Frehley’s Comet and Ace Frehley band members unite to form Return Of The Comet

With Ace Frehley seemingly uninterested in continuing with the Frehley’s Comet reunion and long-time guitarist Richie Scarlet being recently let go from his band, the former KISS guitarist’s former solo band members have united to form the group Return Of The Comet.

Return-Of-The-Comet-photo-2-e15454932663Return Of the Comet consists of John Regan on bass (Frehley’s Comet, Ace Frehley Band, Peter Frampton), Tod Howarth on guitar/lead vocals (Frehley’s Comet, Cheap Trick, Ted Nugent), Richie Scarlet on guitar/lead vocals (Frehley’s Comet, Ace Frehley Band, Mountain) and Steve “Budgie” Werner on drums (Ace Frehley Band, Leslie West, Hindenberg).

The group’s press release states in part:

“Together, John Regan (Peter Frampton bassist), Ace Frehley (KISS guitarist) and world-renowned drummer Anton Fig co-founded the classic hard rock band Frehley’s Comet in 1984.

The band Frehley’s Comet went on to sell well over 1.5 million albums, had 4 albums in the Billboard Charts and had multiple MTV music videos in heavy rotation from 1987 to 1990.

Now for the first time ever, Frehley’s Comet alumni: John Regan, Tod Howarth, Richie Scarlet and Steve “Budgie” Werner will celebrate their writing, recording, touring and co-production contributions to the Frehley’s Comet legacy, by performing the hits & classics from the Frehley’s Comet catalog and more, under the name “Return Of The Comet”.  The ROTC wants you!  Don’t miss it.

*Stay tuned to the ROTC Website and Facebook Page for April tour date announcements over the next few days.”

Return Of The Comet already have one show at the Sellersville Theater in Sellersville, Pennsylvania, USA on April 9, 2019.

    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it. 
    • Yeah, price of tickets. I just saw half priced tickets on Tuesdays for a limited time here too. I don't know what full prices are, but maybe they're only a couple of hundred dollars on Tuesdays.
    • I like it. To bad it’s just a digital and cassette release.
    • Doing you meaning Kent is the vocalist version of ADV.
  • Create New...
