Background: "Love Gun" wasn't a huge hit at the time of its release, but like many of KISS's best tracks, it's endured in their live show to this day, and continues to receive radio airplay. Onetime lead guitarist Ace Frehley talks about his and Paul Stanley's contributions to the song.

Former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley on “Love Gun.” OC:…to work. :15

“I wrote that solo and that’s a real classic Ace solo. Paul wrote the song and it’s a great song. Me and Paul kind of complement each other. I’m playing higher inversions, he’s playing lower ones. Y’know, that was something we did over the course of many years and it seemed to work.”
