A rock legend like Ace Frehley has more than his share of crazy fans, but you'd be surprised how often that works to his advantage.

On Frehley's upcoming covers/remake album "Origins, Vol. 1," the former KISS guitarist found that plenty of his fellow rockers — being die-hard fans of his work — were more than happy to help re-record Frehley's favorite rock songs and KISS classics.

"I re-did a song by Thin Lizzy called 'Emerald,' and I was lucky enough to get Slash to trade off lead solos with me," says Frehley in an exclusive interview with Fox News Magazine. "That was the first VIP guest I had on the record. And then subsequently, I got Lita Ford to sing and play on 'Wild Thing' … I got Mike McCready from Pearl Jam to play on 'Cold Gin' … and John 5 from Rob Zombie's band, he played on 'Parasite' and he played on 'Spanish Castle Magic.'

"And I called up Paul Stanley about six, eight weeks ago, when I was preparing to put the final touches on the album, and I asked him if he wanted to be involved with a song," adds Ace. "He said, 'Great, it sounds like fun!'"

Being a rock star isn't always fun and games, though. As Ace tells FNM, his craziest fans "pop up" when he least expects — and they make his life interesting, to say the least.

"Sometimes they follow me into the bathroom," recalls Frehley of his most aggressive admirers. "I'm trying to take a leak, and the guy's standing there with a pen!"

Judging by Frehley next comments, however, we can't imagine it's all bad.

"Once I came back from a show, and there was a girl in my bed," Frehley says, smirking. "I'm not going to say anything more about that. I'll leave that to your imagination."
