Former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley is facing foreclosure.

The Journal News reported Frehley hasn't paid the mortgage on his New York home in almost two years. In a Feb. 15 foreclosure filing, the U.S. Bank National Association said Frehley stopped paying the $735,000 mortgage on his Ossining, N.Y., home on March 1, 2011. He has an outstanding principal of $703,581.48. Maybe he should open a KISS merchandise stand in front of his house.

Frehley also supposedly hasn't paid his taxes in almost two years, the Journal News reported via the Yorktown tax receiver's office. Records show he owes a 2011 lien of $5,131.61 for town and county taxes along with $13,425.94 for 2012 county, school and town taxes. He supposedly hasn't made a payment since Dec. 30, 2011.

On top of all his other troubles. the guy who replaced him, Tommy Thayer, is still wearing his clothes.

Frehley was in KISS from 1973 to 1982, and rejoined the band for a spell in the 90s.

Just to add insult to injury, his former bandmate Gene Simmons estimated the KISS brand to be worth between $1 and $5 billion in 2011, according to CNN.
