In a new interview, Ace Frehley claims that KISS were afraid he'd "blow Tommy Thayer off the stage" with his guitar skills.
Watch eventual 'American Idol' winner Caleb Johnson rock a medley of 'Love Gun' and 'Shout It Out Loud' with KISS.
Our friends at Ultimate Classic Rock have been compiling an impressive collection of real-life 'Spinal Tap' stories from some of rock's greatest legends. This latest clip stars KISS legend Ace Frehley, who tells the tale of bedding a model in Mexico, but the twist in Ace's story is sure to crack you up.
On April 10, KISS were inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during a ceremony at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, and a lot has been written about the event. But we had the privilege of having founding KISS guitarist Ace Frehley drop by our studio the very next day to set the record straight as to what really went down at the ceremony. Check out the interview in the video above.
The original four members of KISS are now officially Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees. Although the April 10 ceremony is in the past, Paul Stanley's criticism of the institution continues. This time, Stanley takes aim at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame co-founder and Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner, whom Paul Stanley calls a "spineless weasel."
As many rock fans will tell you, the induction of KISS into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was a long time coming. So it was fitting that a long time fan -- Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello -- had the honor of inducting KISS into the Rock Hall during tonight's ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
