Original KISS lead guitarist Ace Frehley says he has yet to be contacted by the band about being part of their End of the Road farewell tour.
Speaking in a recent interview, Ace said, "There's always a chance I might get that emergency phone call... I told my agent to build it into my contract, in the event I do get an emergency phone call and KISS wants me to join the tour and take over for [current guitarist]Tommy [Thayer], that I can get out of the dates that I have booked for the summer. So we'll see what happens. You know me — I'm the kind of guy that says 'never say never.' But at this juncture, I have no plans on performing on the upcoming KISS tour, and I haven't gotten any phone calls or had any correspondence. So that's where it stands at this juncture."
Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons say they're open to having former members make appearances, but stress that this tour is about the current line-up and not a reunion outing.
