Gene Simmons Saved Ace Frehley's Life
"I didn't know Gene was a lifeguard," Frehley said. "I actually drowned one day at a Holiday Inn. [laughs] I'm serious … this was in the '70s. I actually drowned. Everyone else was [expletive] up, I was [expletive] up obviously, but everyone else was loaded, and I went under… the next thing you know, I'm drowning. Gene pulls me out of the pool and pumps the water out of me."
The Space Ace went on to say, "Only later I found out that he was a certified lifeguard when he used to go to college." No word on weather the heroic Demon's mammoth mouth muscle assisted in the rescue. more on this story
