Ace Frehley Open To Reuniting With KISS (Recap)
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."
"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.
