KISS Paul Stanley: 'Ace's erratic playing and Peter's poor quality is why they had to go'
Stanley said: “I’m the first to say that the band wouldn’t exist today without having had Ace and Peter in the beginning.
“And I can also say the band wouldn’t exist today if Ace and Peter were still there.
“So, things move on, and certainly Ace, his playing is part of the foundation of what we do.”
Confusingly, Criss was replaced by two different Erics over the decades.
Eric Carr took over when Criss left the band in 1980 – accounts differ with Stanley and Simmons saying he was fired and Criss insisting he quit. He was followed in 1982 by Frehley.
Carr died of cancer in 1991 and was replaced by Eric Singer.
But then the mid 1990s saw the revival of the band’s original line-up.
