GENE SIMMONS invites ACE FREHLEY for KISS's 'End Of The Road' tour
Gene Simmons has invited Ace Frehley to take part in KISS‘s “End Of The Road” tour, saying “the fans would love” to see the band reunited with its original guitarist.
Earlier today, Simmons took to his Twitter to wish Frehley a happy 71st birthday, and he added: “The invitations still stand. Jump up on stage with us for encores. The fans would love it.“
Three years ago, Frehley said that he was up playing with KISS again, but only if the price is right. Speaking to Rock Candy magazine, he said: “It would be nice to go back out again with them. But it’s not my call. I think we have a really good relationship now. I text Paul (Stanley, KISS frontman) back and forth and we’ve worked together, as I have with Gene. I would seriously consider it, but the money would have to be right. I’m not gonna take (current KISS guitarist)Tommy Thayer’s salary.
“It would certainly sell more tickets with me involved,” Ace added. “I have a gut feeling it will happen.”
At the time, Ace acknowledged that he wasn’t always the easiest to work with in KISS, given his acknowledged problems with drink and drugs.
