Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley has reignited his ongoing verbal feud with Paul Stanley, asserting in a recent interview that he surpasses his ex-bandmate in both singing and guitar playing.
Frehley shared his sentiments while reflecting on the public disputes leading up to Kiss’s final show in December.
Frehley, known for his guitar skills, took the opportunity to emphasize his musical prowess over Stanley.
“I don’t really understand what happened six or seven to eight months ago when Paul and Gene [Simmons] were in the midst of the End of the Road tour,” he expressed to Chaoszine. “They were saying really nice things about Peter [Criss] and Bruce Kulick and me. They were saying, ‘We called Ace, we called Peter, and they’re going to be on stage with us and play a few final songs,’ you know, ‘brotherhood’ and all that bullshit.

“And then, the last month, once the show was sold out and they didn’t need our help to sell out any more tickets, Paul Stanley went on The Howard Stern Show and said, ‘Well, if Ace and Peter got up on stage with us, you might as well call the band Piss,'” Frehley continued. “That was completely opposite from what he was saying six to seven months ago, and I don’t know why he said it, but it pissed me off, and after hearing that, I decided I wasn’t going there. Even if he had invited me and given me a personal invitation after he had hit us below the belt with that comment, I would not have gone there.
“You know, I can play rings around Paul Stanley on guitar,” Frehley boldly claimed. “I can even sing better than him and don’t have to use backing tracks.”
While promoting his upcoming album “10,000 Volts,” Frehley addressed the evolving dynamics within Kiss, underlining the authenticity of his new music.
Amid his ongoing verbal exchanges, Frehley is actively promoting his upcoming album, “10,000 Volts,” slated for release on Feb. 23. Teaming up with Trixter’s Steve Brown, Frehley collaborated on the album and reunited with longtime collaborator and veteran session drummer Anton Fig. The guitarist emphasized the album’s focus on hard yet pop rock songs, reminiscent of Kiss’s “Rock and Roll Over.”
“Not to focus on the past, but the songs on 10,000 Volts are reminiscent of the hard yet pop rock songs from Kiss’ Rock and Roll Over,” Frehley conveyed to Guitar World. “There’s no bullshit in any of these songs. There’s no filler and zero wasted space. Steve was great about helping me trim the fat.”
