KISS’ Gene Simmons says that Peter Criss and Ace Frehley have both been invited to appear on “End of the Road” tour.
Earlier, Ace Frehley said that he was open to playing with KISS again despite his social media outburst earlier this year in which the ex-KISS guitarist called Gene an “a*shole and a sex addict.”
Gene Simmons told The Evening Standard that while Frehley and Criss are welcome to join KISS on stage during the current tour, they are simply not reliable enough to be permanent fixtures on the trek.
Here’s the statement:
“They were as important as any one of us in the early days of the band and they’ve both been invited to come on stage at some point in the tour,”
“But we couldn’t do the whole thing with them. They’re completely undependable.”
Simmons went on to praise Singer and Thayer, saying:
“Eric‘s played with everybody: Brian May, BLACK SABBATH, Alice Cooper, you name it. He and Tommy have a love of labor. They show up on time, do the work and are thrilled to meet the fans. Other members, without naming names, have been miserable.”
