Trouble Walkin' is the third full-length solo album released by Ace Frehley. No longer under the band name Frehley's Comet the album features guest performances by former Kiss drummer Peter Criss, as well as Skid Row members Sebastian Bach, Rachel Bolan and Dave Sabo.

The album peaked at #102 on the Billboard 200 chart. The lone single, a cover of Electric Light Orchestra's "Do Ya", did not chart. "Hide Your Heart", co-written by Paul Stanley, first appeared on Bonnie Tyler's Hide Your Heart album, and later appeared Kiss' Hot in the Shade, released the same month as this album. Lead vocals for "2 Young 2 Die" were provided by rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist Richie Scarlet. Former Kiss drummer Peter Criss was thanked for his contribution to Trouble Walkin'. In fact, his contributions were limited to backing vocals on "Trouble Walkin'", "2 Young 2 Die" and "Back to School".
