March 9, 2011
Steve Smith of Presstelegram.com reports: KISS singer-guitarist Paul Stanley told CNN that there is no possibility of a reunion of the four original KISS members.
“The word that comes up is ‘closure.’ We had a good time that deteriorated over time. When we did the farewell tour I realized I didn’t want to say farewell to KISS, I wanted to say farewell to two of the members.”
Meanwhile the current KISS lineup that also includes original singer-bassist Gene Simmons, will enter the studio next month to begin record the band’s 20 th studio album, the follow-up to its 2009 “Sonic Boom” album. “Sonic Boom” was its first album in 11 years. The band is also expected to embark on a major tour this fall.
In other KISS news, original lead guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss are each writing their memoirs in order to present their side of the story of the band’s history.
