Dee Sinder Launches New Attack On KISS Frontman Paul Stanley
The war of words erupted between the two frontman after Snider took issue with KISS continuing to use the make-up characters of Ace Frehley and Peter Criss after the two founding members left the band. Snider said that he believed that new members wearing the same makeup as Frehley and Criss was an insult to fans.
During the new interview Snider expressed disbelief shock at the attention the feud has received. He said (via Radio.com, "Look, it's crazy how international this feud between me and Paul Stanley has become. Not bad for a 'wannabe' or a 'buffoon.' " Snider was referred to names that Stanley had called him.
"Let me lay out my KISS credentials," Snider said "[I] own the first seven albums. I bought the first album before it had 'Kissin' Time' on it. I bought it in February, 'cause I lived in Nassau County, they lived in Queens, and there was a rumor about this cool band that had an album coming out, and I got it the minute it came out.
"I have stood in front of a mirror and lipsynched Paul Stanley vocals, made Paul faces in the mirror, okay? So I don't think I'm out of line to say that I have an opinion and that I feel that the Ace Frehley impersonator playing guitar now is an insult to fans."
Snider then took aim at Paul Stanley, "Paul, I love your band, I love your music. Why do you have to be such a dick? Alice Cooper is not a dick. Alice Cooper has inspired a million people and he's the coolest guy in the world, yet Gene and Paul, they've got this arrogance about them, like the world owes them something. We do owe you something, but let us offer it; don't insist we buy it from you."
