Paul Stanley Has 'Too Much Pride' For Original KISS Reunion

. (Classic Rock) Paul Stanley has likened playing live with former KISS members Peter Criss and Ace Frehley to "spending a night with your ex wife." The frontman insists there was no way he was going to perform with the pair at last year's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction.

Stanley tells News.com.au: "I enjoyed the Hall Of Fame in a twisted way. It was a terrific night but there was no way I was going to play with them. Frankly, I have too much pride in what I do than to create a moment of nostalgia for someone else. To get on stage with Ace and Peter was an interesting, surreal moment - but nothing I wanted to prolong.

"Someone asked me before the Hall Of Fame, 'Couldn't you just play with the original lineup for one night?' I said, 'How about spending a night with your ex wife? What's the point?'"

Stanley, 63, admits he's had to face the issue of his voice changing over the years, making it more difficult to perform tracks he first sang in the 1970s. Read what he had to say about that here.
