Gene Simmons (KISS) Helped Write “Two Things” For Ace Frehley’s Next Album

It looks like Gene Simmons collaborated on some new songs for former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley’s next album. He told 92 KQRS the following when asked if KISS were considering working on new material:

“Well, I suppose at some point. But literally two days ago I was with Ace, who’s not in the band — he used to be in the band three different times — and we wrote two songs. He asked me to write for his next solo record. So I went over to his place, way out in the desert some place, and we wrote two things. And eventually the band [the current lineup of KISS] will go back in [the studio to make new music]. But there’s no great incentive, because the record industry, the entire thing, is so dysfunctional. You work hard and you get paid, and if we’re gonna work a year on a record, I wanna get paid too. KISS is not a charity. We make a difference between what we do personally and as a band. We buy houses for vets, we supply jobs, we give money to charity, but that’s ’cause I wanna give. I don’t want anybody deciding that our art, our music, our concerts is free, because ‘you have enough money.'”
