The original lead guitarist and co-founding member of KISS, Ace Frehley has talked about his ultimate rock band lineup during a conversation about his former iconic band while admitting he can’t explain some things about his old bandmates.
Within his latest appearance on That Jamieson Show, Ace Frehley, who has recently released his ninth solo studio album, ‘Origins Vol.2,’ via Entertainment One Music, said a few things about the current supergroup he has been working with, whom he considers as his ultimate rock band.
Frehley disclosed the fact that he stole the supergroup from his former bandmate, Gene Simmons, that was doing his Vault experiences back then. He said when Gene invited him in 2018 to go to Australia and Japan with him, he had them back him up, and then he ended up stealing them.
Also, Frehley touched upon the classic lineup of KISS while speaking of the great bands. He acknowledged that they were all so different, yet, for some reason, when the four of them got together, the chemistry worked.
Though he said he can’t explain that exactly, Frehley likened Gene, Paul, Peter, and he, himself, together to one of those flukes. As different as they were, they put all that stuff aside when they hit the stage, he admitted.
Here’s what Ace Frehley said during his latest interview about his ultimate rock band:
“I don’t know, I’m really happy with the group I’m working with now, they’re out of Nashville, they used to back up Gene Simmons when he was doing his Vault experiences.
And then when Gene invited me in 2018 to go to Australia and Japan with him, I had them back me up, and then I ended up stealing them, but as far as a supergroup, I don’t know, that’s hard to say, I’d have to do a little head-scratching on that.”
He continued when he was asked about the classic lineup of KISS, made of Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss in the 70s:
“You know, we were all so different. I mean, seriously, we’re all completely different personalities, but for some reason when the four of us got together, the chemistry worked.
I can’t explain it, it’s just like one of those flukes, and when the four of us get together, as different as we were, we put all that stuff aside when we hit the stage.”
