It wasn’t even close. Both Ace Frehley and Tony Iommi made the latest New York Times Hardcover Nonfiction Best Sellers list, but the former Kiss guitarist enjoyed a comfortable lead over the Black Sabbath axe-man in the battle of the hard rockers vying for supremacy on the tally.

Frehley’s ‘No Regrets: A Rock ‘N’ Roll Memoir’ landed at an impressive No. 10 in its first week out, while Iommi’s ‘Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven And Hell With Black Sabbath’ squeaked in at No. 35.

Ace calls ‘No Regrets,’ which was co-authored by journalist Joe Layden, a look back at his “life of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll.” An excerpt from the book, which details his time in Kiss and his successful solo career, can be read online here, and our exclusive interview with Ace about the book can be read here.

Iommi, meanwhile, described his memoir in the very simplest of terms: “It’s just my life, really,” he said. “It’s about what happened and what I grew up from, and how I’ve gone through life to where I am now.” Isn’t that exactly what a memoir should be? ’Iron Man’ was co-written by journalist T.J. Lammers.
