Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley has been diagnosed with exhaustion after being sent to hospital on Friday.

He cancelled a solo show in New York last night after being seen by doctors in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, following a performance in the city.

Frehley’s staff say he’s heading home to rest and is expected to make a full recovery.

Meanwhile, Kiss performed as a three-piece band in California on Friday after frontman Paul Stanley injured his arm and was ordered to rest.

Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer appeared at a charity concert in California, where they played four songs including Cold Gin and Rock And Roll All Nite.

Stanley reported over the weekend: “Tore my bicep tendon. Surgery reattached it with a screw and stitches to anchor in place. Now much I can do now!”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
