KISS bassist Gene Simmons says that he doesn't get on with former band members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss because the two are hopeless drug addicts:
"I don't get along with anybody who's a drug addict and has a dark cloud over their head and sees themselves as a victim," he told Songfacts.
"Drug addicts and alcoholics are always: 'The world is a harsh place.' My mother was in a concentration camp in Nazi Germany. I don't want to hear f- all about 'the world as a harsh place.' She gets up every day, smells the roses and loves life."
"I never understand, because I always call them on their bluff. I'm the guy who says 'Jump!' when there's a guy on top of a building who says, 'That's it, I can't take it anymore, I'm going to jump.'"
