Paul Stanley Says Frehley And Criss Showed Anti-Semitic And Racist Behavior

Paul Stanley called out his former KISS bandmates Ace Frehley and Peter Criss for anti-Semitic and racist behavior. The guitarist made the revelations in his new memoir Face the Music: A Life Exposed.

Stanley says his former bandmates "felt powerless and impotent when faced with the tireless focus, drive and ambition of me and Gene [Simmons]. As a result, the two of them tried to sabotage the band - which, as they saw it, was unfairly manipulated by [us] money-grubbing Jews."

Stanley noted that his claims are "based on years and years of interactions. [They're] not pulled out of thin air."

He added that Frehley collected Nazi memorabilia and that Criss would mock waiters at Chinese restaurants in their early days in the band.

KISS will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 10.
