  1. I agree with a lot of what Gene Simmons has to say on a variety of topics. He is truly someone who commands a great deal of respect. Where I part company with him concerns his ongoing bashing of two people who were so instrumental in laying the foundation for his continued fame and fortune – Peter Criss and Ace Frehley. Internal strife within bands is to be expected and lineup changes are simply a reality of the business. Celebrate KISS and don’t undermine it. That’s sound business advice, at the very least. Peter and Ace left KISS too long ago for the current bashing to be relevant and to be given any weight. It’s always initiated by Gene and invariably does not even evoke a response from his targets. The merchandising of Peter and Ace as part of KISS seems to be alive and well. The comments therefore, don’t seem to fit well with the wealth generated by 2 guys who Gene has equated with the “c” word. What is more, Peter actually dealt with and conquerered the real “c” which, in the eyes of those who fully appreciate what it does to lives, means more in life than halls of fame, platinum and gold records.

  2. Well put Rich. And I do believe that both Ace and Peter responded to Gene’s latest outburst. Which in my eyes was a new low. Thanks for chiming in!
