Former KISS member Ace Frehley says that after demanding Paul Stanley take back comments made during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show, Frehley requested an apology within seven days, but was instead told “F**k you Ace, I'm not going to apologize” and was hung up on.
Frehley told Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk about the ultimatum he gave Stanley, saying, “Yes he did, not long after the show was over. I was blindsided by the phone call because I saw his name come up on my cell phone and I spoke to him 100 different times on that number — and that can be verified by Verizon, who is my cell phone carrier — I figured he was calling me maybe to apologize or at least explain why he said that. Maybe he meant it more towards Peter than me.”
He continued, “Instead of an apology, I got a five-second phone call, 'F**k you Ace, I'm not going to apologize' and hung up. He wasn't even man enough to give me a rebuttal and explain why I'm so upset or anything like that,” the guitarist continues.”
Frehley added, “And if you look for your email messages that I sent you, I did screengrabs from Verizon — it's the same day as our interview and it says five seconds,”
