Last I knew, Ace still owned the license to his stuff and basically leases the character likeness to the band, although it's possible he sold the rights off in the past few years.Not to bring up a 'dead' thread....but I'm good at it.
I think tommy is a phenomenal guitarist. Way more techincal than Ace ever will be.
Ace is awesome, and totally cool. They both are way more gifted than I will ever be.
I like them both for what they've brought to the KISS stage over the years. Unfortunately for Ace, the Spaceman persona and all that is licensed and owned by KISS as a company, and Ace is no longer part of that company. Tommy, however, is, so he reaps the benefits of playing the character owned by KISS.
It's cool that Ace still has his face on his LP's, though. He deserves at least that much.
Nope. Ace sold it. Hasn’t been “Ace’s makeup “ for 24 years.Last I knew, Ace still owned the license to his stuff and basically leases the character likeness to the band, although it's possible he sold the rights off in the past few years.
Peter sold his likeness off years ago and doesn't make a from it now.
It just tells me Ace is no longer part of KISS, Inc. Tommy's net worth is simply the benefit of being an employee of that corporation.HiS net worth is 11 Million! Thats like 3 times Ace........what does that tell you about ACE? Lol.....more power to him.
Lol. Wow. Hate much?It just tells me Ace is no longer part of KISS, Inc. Tommy's net worth is simply the benefit of being an employee of that corporation.
Beyond that, he's nothing more than a character actor, forever burdened by the association of the character he portrays. Much like a child star such as Todd Bridges or Danny Bonaduce, he won't amount to much once the show is canceled.
His best hope is for Gene and Paul to give him their blessings to carry on the circus act without any original members once they retire.
Not much hate, really. It's more like disgust and contempt for the situation. Take Tommy out and put any other name in his place under the same circumstances and I'd feel the same.Lol. Wow. Hate much?
ACE was given 2-3 chances to be "a part of this corporation " in almost every decade. Hes also had reasonable success as a solo artist . Wheres all that money? ACE .....I love him but he's a tool. A complete fool. A moron.
Tommy did well for a guitar Tech. Many 80s guitarists are broke painting houses somewhere. Tommy is set for life . His best bet is Porsche or Mercedes when he retires.........
