Today is the 40th anniversary of Dynasty. It’s the seventh studio album of Kiss. It restored the band to commercial prominence, reaching #9 on the US Billboard album chart and was certified platinum.

“2000 Man”, is one of my most favourites from the album. It’s a cover version of Rolling Stones’s song.

You might wonder why the voice sounds different. Doesn’t sound like Paul Stanley or Gene Simmons. No, not them. It’s Ace Frehley. He’s in charge of the vocal department. Although he had frequently sung backing vocals and had written the Kiss classics “Cold Gin” and “Parasite”, Frehley had only previously been lead singer on his songs “Shock Me” on Love Gun, and “Rocket Ride” on the studio side of Alive II, as he lacked confidence in his ability as a lead singer.

Frehley’s voice, the way he sings, isn’t bad at all, dontcha think?

Check out also the acoustic version of “2000 Man”. Oh, you can also see Ace Frehley without mask!

Music journalist, writer, radio DJ, socio-political activist, creative industry leader, and a qualified librarian, Rudolf Dethu is heavily under the influence of the punk rock philosophy. Often tagged as this country’s version of Malcolm McLaren—or as Rolling Stone Indonesia put it ‘the grand master of music propaganda’—a name based on his successes when managing Bali’s two favourite bands, Superman Is Dead and Navicula, both who have become two of the nation’s biggest rock bands.
