Ace Frehley Laughs Off Idea Of KISS Without Original Members
Frehley's Spaceman persona was taken over by Tommy Thayer full-time in 2002, while drummer Peter Criss' Catman was handed off to Eric Singer. But Frehley says the idea of Simmons and Stanley being replaced is a non-starter.
He tells WZLX 100.7 (via Blabbermouth): "That's the most ridiculous statement I've ever heard them make. I think the only reason they make those statements at this juncture is to try to validate the fact that they have two other guys in the band that aren't the original members.
"So they're trying to rationalise to the fans, 'Well, you know, we replaced Peter and we replaced Ace, and eventually we're gonna replace ourselves. That's like Mick Jagger saying, 'Yeah, after me and Keith die, The Stones will continue on with two other guys.' It's a joke." Read more here.
