KISS frontman Paul Stanley was recently interviewed by the Rolling Stone Music Now podcast and took a swipe of his own at his long-time bandmate Gene Simmons who recently advised an audience in Australia that he does not lose his voice like Stanley has.
Stanley stated (as transcribed by Blabbermouth): “Look… Gene and I have been together, I think, 47 years or something around that. He’s out having a great time. He’s doing these — most of them are free concerts, and when he charges tickets they don’t sell a lot of tickets — and I’m sure he’s trying to keep it light for the couple hundred people or whatever, and that’s great! I was just with Gene, obviously, day before yesterday and we have a bond that is enviable.”
In terms of his voice, Stanley advised: “You do come to terms over time with your own mortality, and every singer that I know, probably the first thing we all say to each other is, you know, ‘Is this becoming tougher for you?’… I’ve been doing a lot recently to make sure that my voice is in great form. [But] if you want to hear me sound like I did on ‘Kiss Alive!’, then put on ‘Kiss Alive!’“
