Ace Frehley Says Kiss Will ‘Look Foolish When My New Record Comes Out’

While Ace Frehley has never shied away from discussing his struggles with addiction during his days with Kiss, he believes it never affected his abilities as badly as his former band mates have claimed. In a new interview, he says that it’s all part of a smear campaign and that his forthcoming album, ‘Space Invader,’ will vindicate him.

“In concert, I always delivered,” he told WENN. “And 95 per cent of the time I delivered on record. It’s there, it’s history. All they’re trying to do is discredit me, so it validates the new line-up. They’ll look foolish when my new album comes out.”

Frehley also suggested that the whole controversy at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley refusing to perform with Ace and Peter Criss, was due to a case of the the other two being “afraid of history repeating itself.”

“When me and Peter performed with them on the ‘MTV Unplugged’ sessions in 1995,” he continued. “The place went completely crazy and they had to scrap their album that they had just recorded with Bruce Kulick and Eric Singer and they had to do a reunion tour. They’re on tour right now with Tommy [Thayer] and Eric [Singer] and they didn’t want anything to overshadow that. They were afraid that everyone was gonna demand a reunion again if we played.”
