That KISS End of the Road Tour is shaping up to be the band’s last ever outing if these accusations are true, but lets take you back. Recently KISS‘ remaining OG members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley were caught out running their mouth during an interview with Guitar World (as Blabbermouth reported) then they were asked about Ace Frehley and Peter Criss rejoining the band onstage during the tour, to which Gene replied:
“Ace and Peter have gotten three chances. They were in and out of the band — fired — three times.For drugs, alcohol, bad behavior, being unprofessional … they weren’t carrying their load… So the short answer to your question is we’d love to have Ace and Peter join us here and there. And if they don’t, it’s not going to be because of us. But they’re never going to be in KISS again.”
Paul Stanley added:
“Three times is the charm; ‘I promise I’ll pull out’ doesn’t work. It’s the boy who cried wolf: ‘Oh, I’ve been straight for a million years.’ Terrific! Have a good life! … Would we welcome Ace or Peter to jump up onstage for a song or two? Of course. Could we depend on either Ace of Peter to do a full set night after night? Not on your fucking life.”
Well, on top of all of that, Mr Ace Frehley has fucking come out swinging with his own accusations and they’re not fucking good if true, he stated on his Facebook page:
“…Gene, your memory is really incorrect!…I was NEVER FIRED from KISS, I quit twice (not 3-times) of my own free will, because you and Paul are control freaks, untrustworthy and were too difficult to work with!
…Your slanderous remarks about my bad habits over the years has cost me millions of dollars and now that I’m over 12-years sober you’re still saying I can’t be trusted to play a whole nights show! Well that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the last 12-years with different configurations of “The Ace Frehley Band” to you and Paul’s dismay!
…I’m also the most successful solo artist to come out of the original KISS lineup , and proud of it!…You and Paul have tried to derail my solo career multiple times over the years unsuccessfully.
…I’ve tried to be nice and friendly by inviting you and Paul to perform on my past albums for eOne Music, give each of you guys one of my prized Gibson Les Paul 59’ models, but today’s comments have made me realize you’re just an asshole and a sex addict who’s being sued by multiple Women, and you’re just trying to sweep it all under the carpet!
…The icing on the cake was when you groped my wife and propositioned her in Los Angeles at the Capitol Records building behind my back, when I was trying to help you out at one of your “Vault Experiences” which I only found out about several weeks later…she was planning on pursuing a suit against you, but I told her to call it off!!!
…Well now the gloves are off after your terrible comments today and I’m thinking that this really may be “The End Of The Road Tour” for you guys!!!
….Without a complete and heartfelt apology, an offer to give me my old job back, and removing Tommy from the Throne that I created… THE SHIT WILL HIT THE FAN AND THEY’LL BE NO STOPPING IT-IT’S ON!!!
OH SHIT SON, IT IS ON LIKE DONKEY KONG IN HERE!!!!
What’s insane is that both Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley toured together in Australia not even 5 months ago, we caught their show in Sydney and everything seemed fine, Ace even joined the big tongued Gene on stage for a song or two, so to see them now like this is mind-blowing!
We’ll keep you posted once we go grab a BIG ol’ bag of popcorn…
