KISS'd Off: Ace Frehley Fought Tommy Thayer

(Rock News Desk) Ace Frehley says he once knocked Tommy Thayer to the ground in an argument over backstage rules made by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley which they regularly broke themselves.

The drama took place when Frehley was still a member of Kiss and Thayer was the band's tour manager, before taking on the 'Spaceman' persona after the founding guitarist left in 2002.

In his autobiography No Regrets, Frehley says mailmen Simmons and Stanley introduced a rule banning wives or girlfriends from the band's dressing rooms. He claims they frequently brought their own partners backstage but when he did, Thayer confronted him, leading to the fight.

Simmons once deliberately reduced Frehley's daughter to tears, the axe icon adds. Find out how here.
