Gene Simmons unavailable for comment, as he doesn't phone signal from atop his mountain of money

RIP Ace Frehley's home

 
2013-12-15 06:27:42 PM  
Are we sure it wasn't Tommy Thayer's home?

How awful! In a way, I'm glad he's not alive to see this.

I was familiar with the idea of insurance fraud before I read the term, but Kinky Friedman taught me the term "Jewish Lightning".

Something involving a pallet of Johnnie Walker going with you before the warehouse burns, but you get the gist.

"Was it abandoned? Then it's mine. Ace Frehley will be hearing from my lawyers and will be charged with trepass and arson.
Regulation Z, I bet your haven't heard of it. Please do some research."

FTFA - He played with the group until 2002, during what was billed as their farewell tour.

I saw them play the 2000 farewell tour

Then they had the 2002 farewell tour

and at least one more farewell tour since then.

He better kiss his freedom goodbye.  Sure sounds like arson and insurance fraud.

True, you could really lose your house to a fire legitimately when you're losing the house to foreclosure, but the probability is low.

He's already dead. What are they going to do, put his corpse in jail?

I know Gene Simmons does a lot of business unrelated to KISS, but how the fark is he so rich and Ace Frehley can't even make his house payments?

I recall reading something a laong way back regarding KISS and the money.
Apparently Simmons owns the name, while the others are only paid scale.

A suburban New York house owned by former KISS lead guitarist Ace Frehley has gone up in flames.

He's going to be on the street passing his time away for a while until he gets back in the groove.

Sshhhh! the fire is tomorrow night.

Cocaine.


Simmons is a legendary tee-totaller going back to the band's orgins in the 70's.

Meanwhile, Frehley's legendary drug abuse problems have had him kicked from the band multiple times dating back to the 80's.

I think what TV's Vinny was saying was that Jewish families traditionally place a high value on education. Therefore, Gene has solid math, reading and analytic skills. He was also raised to believe in hard work, discipline,  and spending less than you earn. Therefore, late in life, he is a very successful man in a comfortable position.

Meanwhile, Ace was brought up with standard American values: i.e.: in front of a TV. He has a short sighted outlook and demands immediate gratification. Even though he's been gifted with an immense amount of musical talent and has received immense rewards for that talent over decades, he has managed to flush (or snort) it all away.

As I see it, when you see a situation like this and someone says something stupid -like the disparity is due to someone being Jewish- is that it totally ignores that the Jewish guy is acting in a sound, rational, reasonable manner while being compared to an inept dirtbag.

Wrong.

2000 - 2001 was the "Farewell" (to Ace and Peter) tour.

They did not tour in 2002, except to play a few one-off shows, such as the Symphony show.

2003's tour was the "World Domination" tour with Aerosmith.

2004 was the "Rock the Nation" tour.

Then there was the Alive35 Tour, the Sonic Boom Tour, The Tour (w/ Motley Crue) and most recently the Monster tour, as well as a few mini tours mixed in, such as the Hit and Run tour where they played songs based on pollex requests , etc.

One "Farewell" tour, which served as a farewell to the reunion lineup.

I interpreted his response as the standard "HURR DURR JOOS CONTROL SHOWBIZ" derp. Of course, he could have just been trolling, in which case he succeeded spectacularly. In my defense, it's getting hard for me to tell who's a bigoted asshole on the Internet and who's just pretending to be a bigoted asshole. I encounter so many sincerely anti-Jewish comments (not necessarily here, but on other message boards) that I've given up on my old policy of holding my fire just in case it's a joke. Now I assume they're all meant to be taken seriously, and if I happen to take someone down a notch who was just joking, I just write it off as collateral damage.

I agree it was probably a comment on traditional Jewish values. It would be the same Simmons were Chinese: they have similar views on education and financial management. In my experience the Chinese can be even more hardcore.

Ease up with the persecution complex.
