ACE FREHLEY On Whether KISS's 'End Of The Road' Is Truly Band's Farewell: 'They Change Their Minds Like The Weather'

In a brand new interview with the Houston Press, Ace Frehley was asked if he thinks KISS's upcoming "One Last Kiss: End Of The Road World Tour" will truly be the band's last run of shows. He responded: "I can never tell what those guys are gonna do. You know, they'll say one thing and then they do the opposite. They change their minds like the weather. [Laughs]"

Ace also confirmed once again that he hasn't been approached to take part in KISS's farewell tour. "I haven't been asked to do anything with KISS," he said. "The fans are talking about it, but I haven't got the phone calls. So until that happens, it's still up in the air."

If asked, however, Ace is open to the idea of being involved in the trek. "If it was presented to me in the right way and the money was right, sure," he said. "I would do it for the fans more than anything."

As most fans remember, back in 2000 and 2001, KISS already performed a "Farewell Tour". The trek, which was the last to feature drummer Peter Criss, played 142 shows over five legs, covering North America, Japan, and Australia.

Frehley — whose new solo album, "Spaceman", will be released via eOne on October 19 — first left KISS in 1982. He rejoined in 1996 and parted ways with the band once again in 2002 after the conclusion of their first "farewell tour."

Ace said that both times he left KISS were by choice. "I remember the first time I wanted to quit the band," he recalled during a "live conversation" on September 25 at Musicians Institute. "Gene called me up and goes, 'Ace, you don't have to leave the band if you want to do a solo record. You can still stay in KISS. We'll even take a break and let you do it.' They didn't want me to leave. They never wanted me to leave, and I quit the band twice. If you look at old interviews, sometimes they would lump me in with Peter and say, 'Yeah, we fired Peter and Ace.' They never fired me — I always quit. I want to make that clear."
