Kiss Reunion Would Be 'Death Of The Band'
Gene Simmons says an original Kiss reunion would be mark the death of the band. Washington radio station Big 100.3 asked Simmons if their 40th anniversary next year would reunite him and Paul Stanley with original guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss. "No," Simmons said plainly (via HenneMusic). "Ace and Peter were great for the beginning of the band, but it would be the death of the band with Ace and Peter today," said Gene. "They were both equally as important as Paul and I for the beginnings of the band, but not everybody is designed in their DNA to be a marathon runner. They were short-distance runners. "We've been doing this for 40 years. Physically, neither of them could do what we do. It's very physically demanding, and also, the musicality. You've gotta be there with no dark clouds over your head, no drugs or alcohol in your system. [Ace and Peter] were fantastic for the beginning of the band, and that's the chapter they should be in." Simmons also talked about how the current lineup had revitalized the band: "You realize, 'Wow, we're in Kiss.' We've been doing this for so long, sometimes you tend to forget it." If you were in Kiss, how would you celebrate the 40th anniversary next year? Share your creative entries in the comments.
