In a recent interview with Artists On Record, Gene Simmons from Kiss shared that he’s been in touch with his former bandmate, Ace Frehley. Simmons even lent a hand with Frehley’s solo album.

During the interview, Simmons was asked if he’d consider reuniting with his bandmates to create new music. He responded positively, “I’m open. You always have to have the right thing at the right place and the right time. We got the right musicians, we got the right guys. I like them, we like hanging out with each other, so that’s good.” Despite past differences, Simmons mentioned that he, Ace, and Paul have a bond like any family, with its share of ups and downs.

Reflecting on their collaboration, Simmons recounted how Frehley reached out to him for help with his solo album Spaceman. Despite their disagreements, Simmons gladly contributed, co-writing two songs for Frehley’s record. He emphasized:

“There’s plenty of time to do anything, but you’ve gotta make the time because other stuff just gets in there.”

Frehley’s Upcoming Album to Challenge Simmons and Stanley

Despite their recent collaboration, it seems Frehley isn’t looking to reconnect with Simmons or other Kiss members. In interviews leading up to his latest album 10,000 Volts, Frehley teased an upcoming release that he claims will outshine his former bandmates’ work, even going as far as saying it will “embarrass” them. In a February 6 interview, Frehley reiterated his challenge, stating that his new album would set a high standard that he doubts his former bandmates could match. He also expressed frustration over Stanley and Simmons allegedly tarnishing his reputation.
