Original Kiss Members Reunite

Ace and Peter share stage again.

Ultimate Guitar

While Gene Simmons might be adamant that they wont be rejoining the band for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it seems that Ace Frehley and Peter Criss are happy to stage a mini KISS reunion of their own. The pair reunited for the first time in 13 years on Wednesday night during an all-star jam at a party held for Hard Rock DJ and VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show" host Eddie Trunk. The pair teamed up to play the Kiss songs "Love Her All I Can" and "Rock and Roll All Night" alongside Anthrax's Frank Bello and Scott Ian and Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal. You can check out video of the performance below:

Gene Simmons recently described the pair as a "cancer" to Kiss, stating that they were happier not being in the band: "I believe that both Ace and Peter are happier now. They're healthier, they both look fine. When they were in the band, they were both on junk, or crack or alcohol. Clearly not a healthy place for them. They belong home doing autograph shows in clubs. They're happier."

    Frank Bello Scott Ian and Bumblefoot were probably on a cloud the entire time. Music icons playing with their heroes... Beyond epic
    It's 2013 and dumb ass people are still holding their phones vertically when they take videos...
    Haha. This got down votes because the voters were guilt of the same but its so true.
    misleading title. But other than that, that's awesome that the original line up is getting back together again. I'm sure you all know this but, never trust Gene Simmons. In a previous article he said Ace And Peter weren't joining them. I wish they would plan a reunion tour with the original lineup.
    I bet Gene is going to go on some pissed off tirade sooner or later because of this.....
