Paul Stanley On Hypothetical Original KISS Reunion: “I Have No Thoughts Of Revisiting The Past”

Today (February 18) is the 43rd anniversary of KISS’ debut album, and fans often wonder if the original four members who recorded this effort and many other albums, will ever reunite. Sadly, it appears that frontman Paul Stanley isn’t too into the idea. In recent interview with Billboard the vocalist/guitsrist said he has “no thoughts of re-visiting the past.”

Here’s what Stanley had to say:

“No. And that’s not coming from any place of animosity. I sang on Ace’s most recent album and did a video with him. I have the connection and the reconnection and to celebrate the good things we’ve done together is terrific. The band as it is—I’ve played with Eric Singer for I think 25 years and Tommy’s [Thayer] been in the band probably 15 years at this point. I have no thoughts of re-visiting the past. With that said I am happy to enhance or do whatever i can for anyone who has helped put me where I am, but that doesn’t include getting hitched again to somebody I unhitched from.”
