Ex-kiss mem­bers can’t wear make-up at shows: Sim­mons

Winnipeg Sun - - SHOWBIZ - — WENN

Kiss founder Gene

Sim­mons has urged his for­mer band­mates to leave the make-up at home if they want to rock with the group on an up­com­ing world tour.

The bass player re­veals he has spo­ken to Ace Frehley, Peter Criss, and Vin­nie Vin­cent about mak­ing guest ap­pear­ances, but he insists his old band­mates won’t hit the stage in full Kiss make-up.

“You’ve been out of the band 20 years. It’s not go­ing to hap­pen,” he told Im­peri­umi in a re­cent in­ter­view.

Gene has been hook­ing up with his for­mer band­mates at some of his Vault solo events, and he ad­mits it has been fun work­ing with them again:

“Ev­ery­body was very sweet,” he said. “Vin­nie Vin­cent was fine. I thought it was go­ing to be a prob­lem. No prob­lem. Ace loved it so much. He went to three dif­fer­ent cities... Peter was fine. He came by for a short time, told the fans how much he loved them and then he went back. I think Peter is done. He does not want to be in the pub­lic eye. He’ll sign some au­to­graphs, but that’s it.”
