"I am proud of our work and the songs we wrote that appeared on the Creatures Of The Night, Lick It Up and Revenge albums that became KISS classics, and are staples of their live shows to this day. We brought happiness to the fans with performances and songs that will live on.
"I am appearing in person at the Atlanta KISS Expo to celebrate KISS, embrace their music and our time, and share goodwill with the fans. And for all of the above, I wish both Gene and Paul nothing but the best."
