KISS's Paul Stanley Says Frehley and Criss Sold Out Cheap

KISS frontman Paul Stanley believes that original guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss made a bad deal when they sold the rights to their trademark makeup designs for what Stanley feels was too low a price.

Classic Rock reports: Current guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer wear the Spaceman and Catman designs after the original members handed over the rights.

Stanley tells 4KQ: "The guys basically sold it off for, you know, not a whole lot, because they didn't think it was worth anything. Quite honestly I've always thought our image and what we represent is priceless. It didn't matter to some people - it truly matters to me."

He compares the band lineup to a football team, saying: "If somebody is out, somebody else comes along. I don't think that when you go to see your favorite team, you're yelling that you want to see somebody who was in the team 20 years ago. Time moves on - but the team lives on."
