Ex-KISS Guitarist ACE FREHLEY: 'If I Was To Be Asked To Come Back To The Band, I'd Want Everybody To Put On Makeup Together'

December 17, 2018

During an appearance on the "Walking The Floor With Chris Shiflett" podcast, original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley once again confirmed that he hasn't been asked to take part in the band's "End Of The Road" farewell tour. "When Paul [Stanley] and Gene [Simmons] call me up and say, 'Do you wanna do a reunion tour?' and write me a big check, you know, I'll probably be there," Ace said. "If it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen. What are you gonna do?"

If he does take part in a KISS reunion, his return will come with a stipulation: that the guys apply their makeup together, like the old days. "The last thing I heard is that Paul has his own dressing room, and that completely shocked me, because we always used to put on our makeup together, like four girls in a beauty parlor," Frehley said. "We'd be talking while putting makeup on. It was a ritual... If I was to be asked to come back to the band, I'd want everybody to put on makeup together, like we used to."

Frehley first left KISS in 1982. He rejoined in 1996 and parted ways with the band once again in 2002 after the conclusion of their first "farewell tour." Since his departure, guitarist Tommy Thayer has assumed the role of the Spaceman.

Frehley's new solo album, "Spaceman", was released on October 19 via eOne. Simmons co-wrote two tracks on the disc, "Without You I'm Nothing" and "Your Wish Is My Command", the latter of which also features Simmons's bass playing.
