In a conference call last week, Kiss front man Paul Stanley had some interesting things to say, including some comments about the band’s current tour commemorating their 40th anniversary (via post-gazette.com).
On the choice to tour with Def Leppard, Stanley said Kiss does their best to choose great bands to join them on tour. He says fans can look forward to a night full of ‘great music’ and songs with great meaning.
On the songs Kiss will perform on the tour, Stanley said,
‘All of these songs as songs of victory, songs that celebrate our winning. That we are are here 40 years later is a source of incredible pride... These are the songs of a battle won.’
As for the always loyal Kiss fans, Stanley said,
‘You can’t have the kind of dedication we have from fans unless they sense the same dedication [from the band]... We may not always do what makes every fan happy, but we stick to our guns. ... More people than I can count have Kiss tattoos.... There’s no army like a Kiss army.’
When asked about his recent autobiography, Stanley said he hopes 'to inspire' others with his story.
