Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley says that he is still on good terms with his former bandmate Paul Stanley, a year after they collaborated on Frehley's all-star covers LP "Origins Vol. 1". "Yeah, we're good friends," the ex-KISS guitarist told Brazil's Kazagastão (KZG) this past weekend. He added that he also reconnected with another former bandmate, Gene Simmons, for the first time since they spent time with each other at KISS's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction in 2014. "I just saw Gene about a month ago. He came to my concert in Los Angeles. He hung out all night. [He was] very, very, very friendly. He was great with everybody."
Asked if there is any chance that he will rejoin KISS in the not-too-distant future, Frehley said: "I haven't heard anything. But if I were a betting man, I'd say maybe 50-50. That's good odds."

Gene Simmons starred on an on-stage fall last Saturday, july 16th during KISS's show in Montana. During the closing of the set and while the band was playing "Rock'n'Roll All Nite" in a blizzard of comfetti Gene Simmons fells backwards and lands on stage with his back. Obviously, because of the costume and the high platforms it's not possible to get up on his own, so two roadies came for the rescue and helped him get on his feet again while the crowd was immortalizing the moment in their cell phones and cameras.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, KISS frontman Gene Simmons filed an application Friday (June 9) for a trademark on the so-called "devil's horns" hand gesture.
Simmons claims in the filing that the hand gesture was first used in commerce November 14, 1974 — a date that appears to correspond with KISS's "Hotter Than Hell" tour.

Louder Noise caught up with original KISS guitarist, Ace Frehley, and his finance Rachel at the Revolver Music Awards in New York City on December 13th. Ace discusses his Origins Vol 1. album, plans for 2017, and that possible KISS reunion tour.
Asked if there are any updates on the KISS reunion rumours, Ace resonds: “I haven’t heard anything from Paul and Gene, you know, but if it’s going to happen, it should happen next year, I would assume. 2017 seems like a ripe year. We’ll just have to wait and see.

KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons will release his next book, "On Power", on November 14 via Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. Simmons told "The Ride With JMV" on 107.5/1070 The Fan that the book is about how "everybody can make more money and actually become relatively rich." He explained: "There are certainly enough economists in the world who have broken through the glass ceiling and taken the message out there that we've always assumed that the top should only be the people that are the smartest and the richest and all that stuff, and that the masses — the great unwashed masses — can never attain the heights, and that is patently untrue."

Desmond Child

Published in Interviews

Desmond Child must be the most...sung “unsung hero” of the music industry! You see, it is almost certain that the majority of the composers will always be standing in the shadow of the artists that usually take full credit (although someone else has written the song for them). “Desmond Child has saved my career”, Alice Cooper revealed to us back in 2004 and please trust us when we are saying: there are far too many bands whose careers were saved thanks to Desmond Child’s skills.

Kiss released “Monster” in 2012, an album that rightfully pleased their fans a lot! So, it was about time they were coming back to Europe after 3 years and their “Sonic Boom Over Europe” tour in 2010.
