Frehleyone of the founders of KISS, recently said he’s up for a reunion of the original band, but only if the price is right. During a performance on SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation with Eddie Trunk”Frehley said of the chances of him playing with his former bandmates: “Anything is possible – I’ve always said that. That’s the first question so many people have asked me over the years: ‘Would you ever consider playing a KISS meeting?’ I said, ‘I’ve never closed the door on anything.’ If the money is right and it’s presented to me in the right way, anything can happen.

“I’m on good terms with Paul [Stanley, guitar/vocals] and Gene [Simmons, bass/vocals], which is nice, because we created something really special in the early ’70s that has outlived so many other bands. And God bless them. They still do it; I still do. Peter is still nearby. I don’t know exactly why Peter hadn’t toured as much as I have over the years, but it is what it is.”

Frehleythe last release was “Origin Vol. 2”the sequel to his 2016 collection of cover songs that inspired the first KISS guitarist.
