Kiss frontman Paul Stanley says his only regret about their early-80s era was that he had to split their income with Gene Simmons while the bassist wasn’t earning his share.

The band are currently embroiled in a war of words after Stanley and Simmons stated that no version of Kiss would perform at the band’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction in April. The move was a reaction to pressure from organisers, former colleagues and some fans for the original line-up to regroup for the night.

But the frontman has taken time out from the argument to look back at the era leading up to Kiss abandoning their make-up in 1983, when they’d replaced guitarist Ace Frehley with Vinnie Vincent and Eric Carr played drums in place of Peter Criss; Simmons remained with the band but appeared more interested in pursuing other interests including a film career.

Asked if he felt like he was on his own, Stanley tells Guitar World: “I didn’t feel it – I was. There wouldn’t have been a band without me. Because when your partner is off doing all kinds of questionable side projects and not only taking time but also involvement away from the band, sure.

“For me it ultimately came down to, I love what I do, I don’t want this to end. So I decided to bail water, for my own survival. It certainly was more lonely and more stressful to know that the only person who was going to get us through the icebergs was me. But I didn’t mind that.

“I only minded the fact that I was still splitting the income and royalties as though I had a partner. That bothered me. The fact that I was running things? Honestly, that’s probably what got us through that decade.”

Stanley also believes that Frehley “threw away” his talent by allowing drink and drunks to derail his career. “What we had at the beginning was magical,” he recalls. Ace and I played great together.

“But in my mind it’s a crime what Ace did. The Ace I played with when the band first started out was a comet – and not Frehley’s Comet. He was burning bright and really had the ability to be a real contender.

“But he stopped practising. He got involved with a whole lot of things that really diluted and diminished his craft. I saw that comet grow dim

- Paul Stanley Says He Felt ‘Betrayed’ By Gene Simmons In The ’80s

Kiss frontman Paul Stanley says he felt “betrayed” when bandmate Gene Simmons diverted his attention from the group in favor of side projects such as film acting and record producing during the ’80s.

In the April 2014 issue of Mojo, Stanley is very forthcoming, delivering gut-level answers on a variety of topics. Promoting his forthcoming autobiography, ‘Face the Music: A Life Exposed,’ he pulls no punches about Simmons, his partner-in-crime for the past 40 years and counting.

When talking about the state of the band during the ’80s, Stanley said, “There was a lot of anger and resentment at everybody’s lack of focus. But, ultimately I felt a sense of betrayal by Gene. The other people I could understand, but Gene was the person I depended on for ethics and commitments and as far as I was concerned he betrayed me and the band.” Stanley goes on to say how Simmons went off making “questionable decisions involving questionable projects” and bluntly states, “His sense of entitlement was bulls— and it was beyond annoying to me…It was such a slap in the face.”

He also humorously recalled the first time meeting Simmons. “He was overbearing and very much enamored with himself, and I wasn’t quite sure why.” When asked if Gene has read his book, he replied, “No. I’m going to get him a copy,” adding, “Everybody who has read it has said that I went easy on him. I believe that ultimately this book will make us closer.” He does note that the two have never gotten on better than they do today.

The Starchild also talked about attending the High School Of Music with classmates Laura Nyro and Janis Ian, and in remembering the bands formative days, gives much due respect to Ace Frehley, saying, “the capper to it all was Ace. I have to say, that when he came in and the four of us played ‘Deuce,’ it had a sonic gravitas to it.”

‘Face the Music: A Life Exposed’ is due out in April.

Oh, and what does Mr. Simmons say about all this?

RT @majordad316: @genesimmons Paul Stanley states that U betrayed him & band in the 80's with your side projects…And you say? __PROBABLY

Dans son auto-biographie parue il y a quelques temps, Paul Stanley raconte la raison du froid qui existe entre lui et l'ancien guitariste des GUNS N' ROSES, Slash. Paul explique qu'avant la percée des GUNS N' ROSES, il avait eu l'occasion de rencontrer le groupe, et avait conseillé Slash sur plusieurs choses. Pourtant, d'après lui, le guitariste et ses comparses ne souhaitaient pas forcément l'aide de ce dernier et avaient accepté de le rencontrer seulement car Steven Adler, alors batteur du groupe à l'époque, était un grand fan de lui. Pourtant, le torchon brûlera bien vite entre Paul et Slash, qui à la moindre occasion n'hésitera pas à casser du sucre sur le dos du collègue de Gene Simmons. Stanley, vexé, renverra baader Slash quelques temps après, quand celui-ci l'appellera pour lui demander un service, comme le raconte Paul :

"Je lui avais proposé un plan pour obtenir des guitares gratuitement, et lui avait montré comment accorder sa guitare à la manière de Keith Richards, de plus, j'étais allé les voir en concert à Los Angeles, ils donnaient deux shows. Lord du second show, les GUNS n'étaient pas contents du son que l'ingé avait réglé. Il me demanda en plein concert d'intervenir auprès de lui pour arranger le problème, pour dire par la suite que j'avais intentionellement saboté le truc pour qu'ils aient un son de merde. Les jours qui ont suivi, Slash aurait apparemment dit des trucs sur moi, comme quoi je ressemblais à un homo, se moquait de mes vêtements, je suppose qu'il essayait de se donner une crédibilité "rock". Quelques mois plus tard, il m'a appellé pour me demander si on pouvait toujours mettre en place le plan que je lui avais proposé pour avoir des guitares gratuitement. Je lui ai juste dit qu'il devait apprendre que dans ce milieu, on n'étendait pas son linge sale en public : "Content de t'avoir connu, va te faire foutre."".

Slash, récemment interviewé par Rock Hard Allemagne, a confirmé les dires de Stanley, tout en précisant qu'il n'avait pas encore lu son autobiographie. Les hommes seraient en bons termes (sans plus) depuis 2006, année durant laquelle Slash a participé à Kiss "Rock Honours" sur la chaîne VH1

PAUL STANLEY - "If Someone Else Can Be A Great Frontman & Reflect The Philosophy Of KISS, It Doesn't Have To Be Me"
Paul Stanley News - Page 16 550984A5-paul-stanley-if-someone-else-can-be-a-great-frontman-and-reflect-the-philosophy-of-kiss-it-doesnt-have-to-be-me-image
Not due to illness (it’s only happened once in 40 years) or simply taking a breather.

Rather Stanley believes Kiss is immortal and will continue on once he’s hung up the feathers, codpiece, jumpsuit, platform boots, big hair and Starchild make-up for good.

“Kiss is immortal,” Stanley says.

“I look forward to a day when I’ll see Kiss play without me,” Stanley says. “Don’t want to do it next week, haven’t pencilled anything in, but it would be the culmination of what we’ve built and a consistent progression.”
The US rock band formed in 1973 and have survived several line-up changes due to ego, death and drama and weathered everything from low sales to high guitarists.

Frontman Stanley, 63, and Gene Simmons, 65, are the last two original men standing, but the singer insists everyone in Kiss is replaceable, even them.

“The people who said it had to be all the original members to be Kiss are already 50 per cent wrong. Do I cast a big shadow? Sure. But am I crazy enough to think I’m the only person who can do this? That would be ridiculous. Do you go to a Yankees ballgame and hold up a sign “Where’s Babe Ruth?’ The team continues because the ideal is met. The standard is met.

“If someone else can be a great frontman and reflect the philosophy of Kiss, it doesn’t have to be me. Is there someone else out there either in their teens or early 20s now who is going to pick up the torch? I’m sure there is.”


Stanley is the first to point out that an all-new rebooted Kiss would still be called Kiss.

“There’s no need to call it anything except Kiss. The idea that every time we change members we’re going to be Kiss 2.0, Kiss 2.1 is ridiculous. It’s Kiss. Kiss is a philosophy and a way of presenting music and presenting ourselves. If I say that the band can have personnel changes and still be Kiss, why would I exclude myself from that? I feel very strongly about it.”

The last decade has changed Stanley’s mind on his life in Kiss. It’s no longer his entire life like it used to be, rather just a facet of it.
The healthier mindset began with his second marriage in 2005 and having three children in five years, in addition to his oldest son, Evan, now 20.

“My life is wonderful,” Stanley says.

“There are so many performers and actors who don’t want to go home because they have nothing. Their lifeblood and oxygen is adulation and recognition and without that they wilt and wither. I see guys in other bands who have to be out on tour because they’re miserable without it. Well, roll up your sleeves and get a life. It will only enhance what you’re doing. At the end of the day it’s great to have people fantasise about who you are but at the end of the day you always have to face who you really are.”

Stanley did that last year by writing his refreshingly honest autobiography Face the Music, a candid book that wiped away more than the make-up

He documented an unhappy childhood, anti-Semitism in his own band and being so lonely he’d be eating soup in a deli alone just hours after playing a sold-out Madison Square Garden.

Yes, there was a string of ladies — including on Kiss’ first tour of Australia in 1980, where the band were so popular they were prisoners in their five-star hotel rooms. Except unlike actual prisoners, they had a string of Penthouse Pets providing a special kind of room service.
“I’ve always had a soft spot and a not-so-soft spot for Australian women,” Stanley jokes.

That makes him sound like his bandmate Gene Simmons, who skipped the usual rock star addiction to drugs for bedding thousands of women instead.

“I love women,” Stanley says. “But the idea of having intimacy with a woman is totally contradicted by putting it out in the press. Publicity is an betrayal of intimacy.”

And while he’s no stranger to the perks of mammoth, global fame, he also remained aware of the aphrodisiac power of being a rock star.

“For a fat, unpopular kid with one ear to look up at the mirror on the ceiling and see the Playmate of the Month ... I mean, pinch me,” Stanley says.


The missing ear was due to a congenital deformity called microtia, which meant he only had a stump and was deaf on the right side, relying on a hearing aid and later reconstructive surgery, all covered in his book.

“If the goal had been to write one of those rock books I wouldn’t have bothered,” Stanley says. “Most of them are fantasy and self-congratulatory rather than trying to help anybody or connect with anybody. I wanted to break down the walls of the star system where you think the person you look up to is any better or any different or any more together than you are. You can look up to people and their imperfections and know their struggles are no different to yours.”

Stanley has had two hip replacements and may need another — directly linked to jumping around on stage in gravity-defying platform heels during Kiss’ heyday.

“With youth comes the sense of invincibility,” he says. “It’s not that different for athletes, you don’t realise the damage you’re doing until it’s too late. I have no reason for anybody to feel sorry for me, but do my knees hurt? Hell yeah! I’ve done my body in. But it’s been glorious doing it.”
It’s not just his rock-star hips that have taken a battering on the job; Stanley’s voice has notably changed over the last decade, due to good old fashioned age, not chemical abuse like some of his contemporaries.

“The fact is it really is about biomechanics,” Stanley says. “People don’t realise that singing involves a muscle, which is your vocal chords. As you age, they stiffen. It takes more air to make them move so they don’t vibrate the same. Singers undoubtably sooner or later wind up phrasing differently, singing differently.

“If there’s any consolation, it’s in looking at all my contemporaries and we’re all in the same boat. Any of the singers I know, when we see each other, we invariably all talk about the task of singing things that decades ago you understandably never thought you’d still be singing. But that’s the reality.”

Considering many of Kiss’ 70s hits have sky-high vocals, that can be problematic.

“It’s a challenge,” Stanley admits. “Some people handle it quite differently. Some people decide (to go beyond) lowering keys to change melodies. Being as politically correct as possible, the truth of the matter is that some people elect to forgo singing the songs they once did and instead find something else perhaps they’d rather do, but in fact rather don’t have that much choice. There’s enough people out there singing songs with a melody that certainly wasn’t the original.”
For many years Stanley was adamant the world didn’t need new Kiss material and that people certainly didn’t want to pay money to hear new songs at Kiss concerts.

A solo album in 2006, lit a creative fire and since then there’s been two new Kiss albums, 2009’s Sonic Boom and then Monster three years later.

A handful of songs from each are now in Kiss’ setlists but Stanley is the first to admit that nothing they do now will ever match the popularity of their classic hits.

“The new songs can never be Love Gun or I Was Made For Lovin’ You,” he says. “Songs in some ways are like wine. They either age well or they don’t. The ultimate test of music is how it ages. It’s interesting to hear something that 20 or 30 years ago sounded mighty and you hear it now and it sounds dated. Or things the critics once saw as juvenile or simplistic ironically sound timeless now. Time tells all.

“Do I think that some of the new songs are as good as the old? Absolutely. Some of the new songs will age and become classics. (1983’s make-up removal soundtrack) Lick It Up is a Kiss classic at this point. At one point it was just a new song. (1998’s) Psycho Circus is turning out to be one of those songs the whole audience sings. But you’re battling against people’s memories and people’s connection to songs. They’re a sonic snapshot of a time in their lives. It’s hard to beat that. What makes a classic? Time. Today it’s a good song, tomorrow it’s either forgot or it’s a gem.”

A handful of songs from each are now in Kiss’ setlists but Stanley is the first to admit that nothing they do now will ever match the popularity of their classic hits.

“The new songs can never be Love Gun or I Was Made For Lovin’ You,” he says. “Songs in some ways are like wine. They either age well or they don’t. The ultimate test of music is how it ages. It’s interesting to hear something that 20 or 30 years ago sounded mighty and you hear it now and it sounds dated. Or things the critics once saw as juvenile or simplistic ironically sound timeless now. Time tells all.

“Do I think that some of the new songs are as good as the old? Absolutely. Some of the new songs will age and become classics. (1983’s make-up removal soundtrack) Lick It Up is a Kiss classic at this point. At one point it was just a new song. (1998’s) Psycho Circus is turning out to be one of those songs the whole audience sings. But you’re battling against people’s memories and people’s connection to songs. They’re a sonic snapshot of a time in their lives. It’s hard to beat that. What makes a classic? Time. Today it’s a good song, tomorrow it’s either forgot or it’s a gem.”


While Kiss accepted being inducted last year, Simmons and Stanley refused to perform with Frehley and Criss, despite online petitions. All surviving members of Kiss were on stage together, but the band did not play.

“I enjoyed the Hall Of Fame in a twisted way. It was a terrific night but there was no way I was going to play with them,” Stanley says of Frehley and Criss. “Frankly, I have too much pride in what I do than to create a moment of nostalgia for someone else. To get on stage with Ace and Peter was an interesting, surreal moment but nothing I wanted to prolong. It’s like if you ever went back to an old girlfriend because you doubted your choice to leave, it only takes five minutes before you want to get back in your car and leave. Someone asked me before the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame ‘Couldn’t you just play with the original line-up again for one night?’ And I said ‘How about spending a night with your ex wife? What’s the point?’”

Stanley goes into depth about what went wrong with the original line-up reunion in his book, including embarrassing stories of the ex-members virtually being taught how to play Kiss songs again and problematic partners.

“I didn’t write anything to assassinate anybody’s character. I wrote the truth. If someone asks you a question you have to tell the reality as you know it. As you live it. I gave examples. I’m the first to say I didn’t throw anybody under the bus but some people walked under it. People connect the original line-up to a time in their lives. Neither one can you realistically go back to. You want to relive your past, well try it, it doesn’t really work. I certainly don’t want to relive mine. Mine got me to here.”
The singer says he never read Ace or Peter’s books, which don’t paint him in the best light.

“On tour some people showed me a few pages. People will think I keep taking potshots, but I keep getting asked about this and I give honest answers. In Ace’s case, how can somebody who can barely remember what happened last week write a book? I’m not talking about today, hopefully according to Ace he’s clean and sober. But there were certainly decades that he was anything but. When you have to call your friends to tell you what happened is that really an autobiography? Or creative fiction. No, that was pointless.

But there were certainly decades that he was anything but. When you have to call your friends to tell you what happened is that really an autobiography? Or creative fiction. No, that was pointless.
“I think Peter’s book began with him in an earthquake where the ground opened up and he had a gun in his mouth. Well, I know where he was living. The ground didn’t open up. You gotta consider the source. A book can be a great opportunity to have an alibi or an excuse. If you choose to be a victim then you will never accomplish anything you’re capable of because your defeats and your lack of success will always be due to somebody else.

“It’s very transparent to me. That doesn’t only go for any guys that were in the band it goes for people in general. You’re either a victim in life or you brush yourself off and say it’s up to me.

You’re either a victim of your parents’ good will or their mistakes or a victim of circumstances you create or you say it’s time to change. It’s all up to us. And we reap the rewards.
“Fame is incredible in its power to either enhance your life or destroy it. I’ve always been of the mindset it’s an incredible tool to give you everything you want and things you never knew you wanted. It’s just how you choose to view it and what you use fame to accomplish. It gives you the ability to have limitless potential as a person and as a musician. The rest is up to you.”

Stanley admits his 20-year-old son Evan is following in his musical footsteps.

“He’s a fabulous guitarist and singer/songwriter but he came to it on his own,” Stanley says. “Nobody wants to be Frank Sinatra Jr. That’s a cross to bear that’s way too heavy. I didn’t want my kids to have to be my mini me. So for Evan, I never approached the idea of him playing an instrument. He took piano lessons when he was little, one day he came to me when he was 12 and said he wanted to play guitar. I said `Great, here’s three chords, see ya’. The rest was up to him.

“The one thing I did say was whatever you want to play, if you love rock, you have to go back to the blues. The deeper your foundation, the sturdier whatever you build is. With that in mind, remember Jimi Hendrix didn’t start playing Purple Haze. If you like Jimi Hendrix you have to listen to what he listened to. Otherwise you just become a mimic. There’s a big difference between somebody who’s mimicking Eric Clapton and someone who’s going back and listening to Robert Johnson and working his way from there.
“My son and I have great conversations about Motown and folk music from the ‘60s, things I was lucky enough to see, like Otis Redding. If you all you listen to is what you like and what you’re playing then it’s kind of like inbreeding. You wind up with a kid with an eye in the middle of his head. The most important thing is to expose your children to all of the arts, everything. If my parents did anything great for me it was exposing me to fine art, to theatre. Those are gifts. They can be an avenue or a map for you to take to express yourself.”

Stanley is now hooked on Cardio Barre, an aerobic workout for dancers he does with his wife Erin.

“I’m in a class with 35 or 40 women, which doesn’t suck,” he says. “It became very addictive for me, I go maybe five times a week. It’s a terrific workout. I miss that more than almost anything else being on tour. Apart from my family.”

His young family means Stanley now curtails touring so he’s never away from home for longer than a few weeks at a time.

Kiss will squeeze a return to Australia in October, bringing their Spider Tour down under for the first time.

Stanley says fans can expect 1980 single Shandi, which was only really a hit in Australia.

“It seemed to become embraced more by Australia than almost any other place. That’s terrific. I like the song a lot. I like the simplicity of the idea of a relationship that should end, but you just keep it going. You say goodnight when you really should say goodbye. And I’ve met numerous young woman in Australia named Shandi.”
