Ace Frehley Says KISS Owed Fans 10 Minutes After 40 Years

(Classic Rock) Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley is still angry over the way the band dealt with their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. And he wants to know why they were incapable of giving fans what he believes they wanted: an original lineup reunion.

But Frehley, who split with Kiss for a second time in 2002, tells Guitar World: "I was like, 'After 40 years of support you can't give the fans 10 minutes?' The fans wanted it. The Hall Of Fame wanted it. But Gene and Paul didn't.

"It's sad - they definitely lost some fans because of this decision. I think the reason was because they're afraid of history repeating itself." He argues that Simmons and Stanley had been stung after the lineup's reunion in 1995, which took on a life of its own after they recorded an episode of MTV Unplugged. "Because the fans were so excited they had to do a reunion tour." He had a lot more to say.
