Paul Stanley Still Connected With Former KISS Bandmate Ace Frehley

(Classic Rock) Paul Stanley says recording a track for Ace Frehley's upcoming solo album was a "terrific" experience. The Kiss mainman teamed up with his old bandmate for a cover of Free's Fire And Water which appears on Frehley's Origins Vol.1.

And Stanley says despite the public spats between the pair down the years, seeing the guitarist do well in his career gives him pleasure. Stanley tells the Guns, Gold & Rock N' Roll Radio Network: "Ace was doing an album of covers, songs that influenced him and that he loved, and called me.

"For all the bickering and stuff that we may say about each other, we go back to a very magical time. We started this together. So in spite of whatever we may say from time-to-time, or things that get blown up, we are a family - a dysfunctional one - but nonetheless a family.

"So Ace said, 'Would you do something on the album?' I said, 'Sure. Of course.'" Stanley continues: "If he succeeds, it only makes me happy. I don't want to see anybody fail - especially somebody who I'm close to. Even if I don't speak to him weekly, even monthly, we're connected in a way that will go to the end."
