Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley has revealed that he and original drummer Peter Criss will not be joining their former bandmates on stage during April's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley says he's happy to perform with his former bandmates at the upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony -- as long as he's the only one wearing his famous makeup.
Now that Kiss have finally been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the next big question is, Will the original foursome, who have been apart for about a decade, perform together at the induction ceremony in their former hometown of New York City in April?
Kiss were one of the top arena draws of the '70s, staging some of the most impressive concert spectacles of that era with their over-the-top theatrical performances. But the power of their live production almost cost guitarist Ace Frehley his life at a gig on Dec. 12, 1976, at the Lakeland Civic Center in Florida, when an unforeseen technical glitch caused him to nearly be electrocuted onstage.
Ace Frehley said he's come to expect blindside insults from Gene Simmons. So he wasn't totally surprised by the recent spate of comments made by his former Kiss bandmate, who Frehley said "has no friends -- he's not respected by his peers."
This past Thursday (Oct. 24), Ace Frehley and Peter Crissperformed together for the first time since 2000 as part of an all-star band. The concert, a celebration of the 30th anniversary of Eddie Trunk's radio show, took place at New York's Hard Rock Cafe.
Ace Frehley and Peter Criss played together onstage together for the first time in 13 years last night. The former Kiss bandmates were at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City to celebrate the 30th anniversary for radio and TV host Eddie Trunk's radio show.
Now that Kiss are on the ballot for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, fans have started daydreaming about what it might be like to see the band enshrined alongside some of their fellow rock legends. But if your dream includes seeing the original lineup play at the induction ceremony, Gene Simmons has some bad news for you.
You could fill half a dozen documentaries with behind-the-scenes stories from Kiss' career. Unfortunately, now that there's an official movie in the works, ongoing bitterness will keep two former members from sharing their Kisstory.
