Gene Simmons takes the high road refusing to comment in print on Ace Frehley’s insulting remarks
Back on January 29th of this year, former KISS lead guitarist Ace Frehley posted a rather nasty Facebook message towards his former KISS bandmate Gene Simmons including accusing the latter of groping and propositioning his wife, and costing him millions with “slanderous remarks” about his “bad habits.” Nevertheless, Frehley left the door open to rejoin KISS for the group’s upcoming End of the Road World Tour if he received a heartfelt apology and his spot back in the band.
The current KISS members consisting of Simmons, frontman Paul Stanley, lead guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer were recently interviewed by the Los Angeles Times.
In terms of Frehley‘s comments, Simmons took the high road as he stated: “I’m not gonna say anything in print other than I love Ace and Peter and I thank them forever — they’re every bit as important as Paul and myself for launching the band…. I’m not going to make any guesses of why the emotions are so volatile, but it’s happened before.”
KISS started their End of the Road World Tour at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on January 31, 2019. The setlist consisted of 20 songs and there were no former KISS members that appeared onstage at that show.
