Paul Stanley says Kiss is still open to have Ace and Peter Criss on farewell

Kiss vocalist and guitarist Paul Stanley said in an interview with Paulo Baron that the band is still open to have ex-guitarist Ace Frehley and ex-drummer Peter Criss on their farewell tour. However, the musician stated that it has to be in the right way, because the band exists for a long time already without them.

Paul Stanley says Kiss is still open to have Ace and Peter Criss on farewell:

“Anything is possible. I don’t rule anything out. I have to say that we wouldn’t be here today if not for our past. If Peter and Ace hadn’t been there at the beginning, we wouldn’t be here today. But I will also say that if Peter and Ace had stayed with the band, we also wouldn’t be here today. So you have to put it into some sort of balance and perspective.”

“If there is a way to include them in celebrating the final tour, yeah, I’m open to it. It has to make sense and it has to feel right, because the band has existed far, far, far too long without them to let anybody spoil this or make it less than it should be. If there’s no joy in it, I’m not interested.”

In an interview with The Project, Paul Stanley recalled how he had the idea for the name of the group. “I thought that it was something that would sound familiar no matter where you were in the world. It was the kind of name where a word like that, you would go, ‘Oh, I’ve heard of KISS.’ And it also had so many different meanings — a passionate kiss, a kiss of death, whatever.”

“So it was a word that I think was open to interpretation. And I guess it worked, right? We’re here, what? 48 years later — something like that. But who’s counting?”
