KISS bassist and singer Gene Simmons played the song “It’s My Life” for the first time live with his Gene Simmons Band in Lynn, Massachusetts, USA.
His bandmate Paul Stanley apparently decided to set the record straight on his involvement with the song. The following message was posted on Stanley‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“For anyone it matters to… The song “It’s My Life” had nothing to do with any other song of mine. I wrote the title, chorus, chords, melody & lyric to “It’s My Life” and didn’t want to use at the time. Gene wanted to use it so he wrote the rest. THAT’S the story!”
Further messages from Andrew Treadwell originating from Stanley‘s Facebook post indicate that Stanley blocked KISS from using the “It’s My Life” song for the following three KISS albums: Creatures Of The Night (1982), Crazy Nights (1988) and Psycho Circus (1998).
