No KISS Reunion at Rock Hall

If KISS is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year, don’t look for it to lead to another reunion of the original lineup.

Gene Simmons says, “No. How many chances in life do you get? When you stick your hand in the fire, you get burned the first time… Both Ace Frehley and Peter Criss had three chances to be in the band, and three times they screwed it up. They were every bit as important as we were at the formation of the band and they would have been the ruin of the band had they continued in it. When you have a cancer in your system, its best to cut it out as fast as you can.”

But Simmons does add that the separation has helped everyone. “I believe that both Ace and Peter are happier now. They are healthier, they look fine. When they were in the band, they were both on junk or crack or alcohol. Clearly not a healthy place for them. They belong doing autograph shows in clubs –- they’re happier.”

KISS, which is now Simmons and Paul Stanley with their two-guns-for-hire — Tommy Thayer as Ace Frehley and Eric Singer as Peter Criss — wrap up a tour of Japan with shows in Tokyo on Wednesday and Thursday.
