Fans have been wondering whether KISS will embark on a farewell tour following the news that they were attempting to trademark the phrase “The End Of The Road”.
Recently KISS frontman Paul Stanley was interviewed and he said: “It’s not the first trademark that’s been filed. I thought it was a terrific name, and I was surprised nobody had used it before. I wanted to make sure that when we used it, and there will be a time that we do, I imagine — I wanted to be sure that we own it and it’s ours. When we wanted to go out and do the ‘Hottest Show On Earth’ tour, Ringling Bros. came to us and said, ‘You can’t do that.’ It set off a light and bell for me.
We’ve always had slogans or sayings that are synonymous with us, and this was another. Everything does end, in one form or another. When it’s my time, I want to go out in style, and I want to go out guns blazing. So, when I came up with this idea, I thought let’s make sure we tie this up.”
