PAUL STANLEY would never be friends with PETER CRISS or ACE FREHLEY again. The KISS singer would never allow the band's former guitarist and drummer - who left in the 80s, but rejoined the band between 1996 and 2002 and 2001 respectively - to play with the group again and claims they were never very close even in their 70s heyday.
Paul exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Friends? No I was never really friends with them. The band was never about friendship, the band was about commitment to a cause, but friendship? We were all very different people.
"I loved them for what we created together, I certainly don't love them today. But the band as it is today is far more the embodiment of what we started than what we became."
When asked when he had last spoke with his former bandmates, Paul said: "I spoke to Ace probably three years ago. Peter I haven't spoken to in probably a decade."
