Ace Frehley Won't Rule Out Kiss Reunion
Many of us were surprised to hear that Kiss front man and rhythm guitarist Paul Stanley recently collaborated in the studio with his former band mate guitarist Ace Frehley. The two did a cover of Free's Fire and Ice for Frehley's upcoming solo covers album Origins Vol. 1.
That said, according to a recent interview with Frehley a reunion between him and Kiss doesn't seem to be entirely out of the question. Both Stanley and Frehley both seemed to have a really good time together in the studio and are pleased with how the track turned out.
In an interview with Team Rock, Frehley says regarding a reunion possibility:
"We haven't discussed that at this point, but I'm not ruling it out. I always leave the door open. I know there have been rumours and stuff, but there hasn't been any talk of us getting back together. Right now it's just the excitement of this record, and I'm very excited about Fire And Water.
There's a good chance that we're gonna release that as a single. Paul's really happy with the way it turned out, I'm very happy, the record company's very happy, so we're just moving forward in a positive way. And whatever happens in the future, it happens, or if it doesn't, it doesn't."
Well regardless of whether or not a reunion happens, it's cool to see that Stanley and Frehley seem to be on good terms again. I kind of doubt Frehley will ever rejoin the band full time, but it would be nice to see him do a song or two with them once in a while whenever they might happen to cross paths on the road. Hopefully this collaboration leads to other cool Kiss related stuff as well.
