ACE FREHLEY joins Mitch on episode 204 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.
In the episode’s only interview, former KISS guitarist discusses his latest album Origins Vol. 1, working with Paul Stanley, his upcoming 2016 tour plans, the 40th anniversary of KISS’ landmark Destroyer album, the 20th anniversary of the pre-reunion MTV Unplugged album, Psycho Circus, the reunion tour and much more.
Quotes from the ACE FREHLEY interview:
Getting Paul Stanley on the album: “It was actually rather easy. I called Paul and he picked up the phone right away. I told him what I was doing and he was very receptive.”
“I had originally tried to get Gene on the record, but he never got back to me.”
On working with KISS again: “I’m not ruling it out. I always leave the door open. Right now, I’m just very excited about Fire And Water. Paul’s really happy with the way it turned out. I’m very happy. So, we’re just moving forward in a positive way and whatever happens in the future happens or if it doesn’t – it doesn’t.”
The 1996 KISS – MTV Unplugged album: “It was a little nerve-racking. We weren’t sure how the fans were going to receive it, but when we taped the show; the fans just went crazy when me and Peter walked out. It was just one of those moments in time where everything solidified.”
“Paul and Gene realized that they had to move forward with me and Peter because the fans wouldn’t have it any other way.”
The Reunion Tour: “It was a lot of fun in the beginning, but as the years progressed it got a little weird.”
“Paul and Gene know how to push my buttons and Peter’s buttons.”
The supposed reunion album, Psycho Circus: “I felt it would have been a better album if me and Peter had played more on it.”
