KISS co-founder and frontman Paul Stanley made a new interview with ‘Jim & Sam Show’ of SiriusXM this week and responded to the question of whether it’s possible to reunite with former members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss.
You may already follow KISS’ music that they are about to make their final tour named ‘The End of the Road World Tour‘ and they will end their 50 years long career in the music scene. The tour will kick off on August 18th in Mansfield, Massachusetts, and run through October 9th in Tampa, Florida.
In his latest interview with SiriusXM, Paul once again was asked whether getting together with former bandmates Ace Frehley and Peter Criss is on the table. While admitting that KISS wouldn’t be here without Ace and Peter but they wouldn’t be that successful with them either ruling out the possibility of a reunion.
Here is the statement of Paul:
“Well, the original four are the original four. We were the ones who started this and created the template that we still stand by today. I think where people go wrong is when they think that things can remain timeless and that time doesn’t take its toll.
You may want mom and dad to be back together, but it didn’t work out. And we had amazing moments and amazing times, and we did some phenomenal things together which, look, tie me to them forever. But that’s not the fairy tale; it doesn’t end there.
I’ve said before: we couldn’t have been here without Ace and Peter and we couldn’t be here today with Ace and Peter. I think people yearn for something that is — I was gonna say ‘impractical.’ I would say impossible. It’s great to look back on, but it’s not that different than if you break up with somebody and years later you go, ‘Wow. Why did that happen? Let me go back.’ You go back and it’s not the same anymore. And you quickly realize, as we did, why it didn’t work out the first time. That’s why it didn’t work out the second time.”
