    Kiss fans will always want a reunion of the original lineup. Sadly, that will probably never happen. Sorry to destroy your hopes and dreams, KISS fans, but we are just the messengers. The band is shutting down the notion that there will be a reunion featuring all original members. So blame Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, not us.

    When asked if he and frontman Paul Stanley would ever reunite with guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss, bassist Gene Simmons said, "We've already danced that dance three different times. No way will we reunite. It wouldn't be fair to Tommy [Thayer] and Eric [Singer]. It wouldn't be right."

    We understand the respect to other former members, but the original lineup was magical. Just sayin'.

    KISS fans, what do you think? Do you agree with the Simmons x Stanley stances?
