KISS legend Ace Frehley has released another covers album, Origins Vol. 2. Along with his newest record, Ace spoke to us about never wanting to perform on another Kiss Kruise, the times Gene Simmons saved his life, not being invited on KISS’ farewell tour in part because of his ex-girlfriend and more.
Frehley last performed on a KISS Kruise in 2019, even playing a short acoustic set with KISS on the ship in 2018. However, Frehley says he’ll never board the ship again because of the way he was treated. “They actually paid me $15,000 not to do a Q&A," Ace reveals. "What are they afraid that I’m gonna say? I did [the cruise], pretty much, for the money and the fans. Would I ever do another Kiss Kruise? No. I just didn’t like the way I was treated. I did that first set with the guys and then I never heard from them again.”
