Ace Frehley, the original lead guitarist of the rock band Kiss, said in a recent interview that he thinks Americans should support President TrumpDonald John TrumpTeachers union launches 0K ad buy calling for education funding in relief bill FDA head pledges 'we will not cut corners' on coronavirus vaccine Let our values drive COVID-19 liability protection MORE or “move to another country.”

The 67-year-old made the remarks during a recent appearance on the “Juliet: Unexpected” podcast, where he also voiced his frustrations about musicians who “jump on a bandwagon against our government” and Trump, Yahoo News reported on Wednesday.

"I hate politics," Frehley said on the podcast. "I don't like talking politics, and I don't think politics and music mix. I really frown on musicians who get up on a platform and start talking about the president or complain about — I just don't think it belongs.”


“I'm an entertainer,” he continued. “There's no reason to bring up politics. Let me play my guitar and write songs and entertain people. That's my job.”

He went on to say in the podcast that whether Americans “love him or hate him,” they should “get behind your president.” 

“He was elected,” Frehley said on the podcast. “We live under the Constitution of the United States, and you're supposed to support your president. Love him or hate him, you're supposed to support him, or go move to another country.”

“Being American, we have the right to free speech, and I'm all for everybody putting their two cents in on everything, but when musicians or actors get really verbal and jump on a bandwagon against our government, I don't agree with that,” he added.

Frehley, who co-founded Kiss in 1973, also recently spoke about the band’s second farewell tour earlier this year, and said in an interview that he isn’t opposed to taking another chance to rock out in the name of Kiss, if given the opportunity again. 

“I’m a former member, but I’m a former founding member. And so is Peter Criss. So that kind of sounds like me and Peter might be involved,” Frehley told Fox News at the time. “But I can’t say anything because I haven’t been asked.”
