Ace Frehley Open To Reuniting With KISS

(New Rock Times) Ace Frehley admits no talks have taken place regarding a possible reunion with Kiss but the original guitarist insists he will never 'close the door' and he reckons it would be 'magical' if it was handled right.

In a live interview with BackStory on March 23 at AOL studios in New York City, Frehley says: "I don't know. I mean, I always leave the door open. I'm the kind of guy that says, 'Never say never.' I know those guys are always saying I don't deserve to wear the makeup, and 'We'll never work with Ace again.'

"But, you know, they said that before the reunion tour in '96. So who knows? It hasn't been discussed, if that's what you wanna know. It hasn't been discussed. And who knows what the future will bring? If it did happen at some point, I think'd be magical if it was handled right."
Other topics discussed by Frehley was Kiss's infamous merchandising which has seen the band's image and name attached to and endorsing a huge range of products.

"What happened was, once we… Well, I shouldn't say we'… Gene Simmons got out of control with the merchandising," he continues. "You know, the lunch boxes… whatever. Kids started coming to the concerts… We started out almost like an underground band, and then, obviously, our following grew. But we started appealing to younger kids, because of all the toys and whatever the case… We did that silly movie, 'Kiss Meets The Phantom Of The Park'."

He adds: "And Paul Stanley and Gene get upset about that; I just think it's a riot. I had so much fun doing that." Read more here.
