Ace Frehley: "It's ridiculous to think that KISS could continue without any original member"


Former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley was recently interviewed by WZLX 100.7 FM radio, you can read some excerpts below.

About the possibility of the band one day carrying on without any original members, including Paul Stanley, he said: "That's the most ridiculous statement I've ever heard [Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons] make. I think the only reason they make those statements at this juncture is to try to validate the fact that they have two other guys in the band that aren't the original members. So they're trying to rationalize to the fans, 'Well, you know, we replaced Peter Criss and we replaced Ace, and eventually we're gonna replace ourselves. That's like Mick Jagger saying, 'Yeah, after me and Keith Richards die, The Stones will continue on with two other guys.' I mean, it's a joke."
