Ace Frehley On The Possibility Of Reuniting With KISS: “If The Money’s Right And It’s Presented To Me In The Right Way, Anything Can Happen”

During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk,” Ace Frehley was asked if he would be open to performing with KISS again. The guitarist responded with the following:

“Anything’s possible — I’ve always said that. That’s the first question so many people have asked me over the years: ‘Would you ever consider doing a KISS reunion?’ I said, ‘I never closed the door on anything.’ If the money’s right and it’s presented to me in the right way, anything can happen. I’m on good terms with Paul [Stanley] and Gene [Simmons], which is nice, because we created something really special in the early ’70s that has outlasted so many other bands. And God bless ’em. They’re still doing it; I’m still doing it. Peter [Criss] is still around. I’m not quite sure why Peter hadn’t toured over the years as much as I have, but it is what it is.”
