Ace Frehley not asked to participate at KISS’ upcoming New Year’s Eve live stream concert
As what should come as no surprise, KISS‘ original lead guitarist Ace Frehley was not asked to participate at his former band’s upcoming New Year’s Eve live stream concert that will be taking place from Dubai in two days.
The following message was posted on Frehley‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“Contrary to online statements, Ace Frehley was not asked to and will not be appearing with KISS at their New Year’s Eve concert in Dubai. Ace is currently in Nashville, TN recording his new studio album of all original material. Ace wishes all of his fans a happy and prosperous New Year!”
Back in late January 2019, Frehley made the following comments in part towards his former KISS bandmate Gene Simmons:
“My Reaction to Gene’s Post Today
…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!”
