In recent interviews, Ace Frehley has stated that he thinks Bruce Kulick was the best replacement for him as guitarist in KISS. Ace, who recently released a new album of cover songs called Origins Vol. 2 also had Kulick appear on the album with him.
Bruce Kulick has responded to Frehley’s comments by saying:
It’s exciting that I appear on Ace’s last release, “Origins Vol. 2” He’s done a lot of press for the new release, and he keeps saying some great things about my years in KISS. He has been sharing his opinions that I had no idea how he felt regarding the lead guitarists that replaced him. Since he’s an Icon, the original KISS guitarist, who influenced many to love KISS and even play the guitar, it’s an honor he spoke well of my role as the guitarist in the band. Thank you Ace!
