Paul Stanley: Kiss farewell tour could include ex-members
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — It won't be all night, but former members of Kiss might get the chance to rock 'n' roll with the band one last time.
Kiss frontman Paul Stanley says the band's (second) farewell tour could include former members performing onstage.
Gene Simmons has denied accusations of "sexual battery, gender violence, battery and assault".
The KISS star is being sued by an unnamed radio and television broadcaster, who filed a lawsuit at Los Angeles Superior Court last week, claiming that he made "unwanted, unwarranted sexual advances".
Gene Simmons won't work with Vinnie Vincent again.
The 68-year-old rock legend doesn't ever want to re-team with his former KISS band member - who replaced lead guitarist Ace Frehley in 1982 but was only with the heavy metal outfit for two years - because he doesn't need "dark clouds" in his life.

The pulsating neon “KISS” sign that greeted cars pulling into the Valley View Casino Center on Sunday made it seem like the place had been transported back to the late-1970s.
KISS? OK, this could be interesting. Maybe they’ll open with “Love Gun.” Gene Simmons will do that bloody tongue thing, the pyrotechnics will melt some scaffolding and everyone’s ears will ache for 24 hours.
Asked if Kiss plans to release new music anytime soon, Paul Stanley, one of the legendary band’s founding members, responds with a long sigh.
It’s been four years since the band’s last album, 2012’s “Monster,” and Stanley’s band mate, Gene Simmons, has expressed to reporters his desire to get back into the studio. Stanley, on the other hand, isn’t so sure.
