*UPDATE* GENE SIMMONS SAYS “ACE AND PETER WILL NOT PERFORM WITH KISS AT THE ROCK N’ ROLL HALL OF FAME,” VIDEO POSTED ONLINE

Posted by Dana Category: LATEST NEWS

KISS400 According to Ultimate Guitar, KISS frontman Gene Simmons told Radio.com that if the band is inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Fame, they will not be re-uniting with original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss.

Simmons stated, “No. How many chances in life do you get? When you stick your hand in fire, you get burned the first time. Fire and nature doesn’t care if you’re a good guy or a bad guy. Both of those guys had three chances to be in the band. Three times they f–ked 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 if they had continued to be in the band. When you have a cancer in your system, it’s best to cut it out as fast as you can. It used to be a part of your body; it turned into cancer. You gotta cut it out.”

Simmons also added that he believes his former bandmates are much happier not being in the band, “I believe that both Ace and Peter are happier now. They’re healthier, they both 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 home doing autograph shows in clubs. They’re happier.”

  1. What a joke with out ace and peter there is no kiss…these jokers dressing and acting like them is pathetic ….there has been no kiss since creatures…period….everything since then has sucked..along with several before creatures…guess what, no one cares what happens without ace and peter

  2. They have finally reach the RnR HOF by us the fans plus after years of being snubed by the HOF and now Gene and Paul cant/ wont play with the other founding members ACE and PETER… Hey go on stage even without makeup and jam…. What a rip of to loyal fans! And newer fans who do not really dig the latest line up. I feel cheated as a fan,musically loyally, and financially. This will put a scare on Gene and Paul which will also put on my love for them…They always have said they are here for the fans but now its thier egos. Ace and Peter are not asking to rejoin KISS. But rather share the KISStory accepting the induction.

  3. When r the eddieites gonna actually realize paul and gene dont care KISS IS ABAND NOT A BRAND AS EDDIE IS SO LAMELY FOND OF SAYING HE HASNT SEEN KISS IN 12 YRS
