In a brand new interview with StarTribune, KISS frontman Paul Stanley was asked how he is taking care of his voice on the “End Of The Road” trek, in light of the fact that it has sounded diminished on many recent tours.
“I try not to talk to guys like you, for one,” Stanley replied. “It’s hard to stay away from smoke, because the arenas are filled with it. But I do shut up as much as possible, and try other things.
“There’s no denying, whether you’re an athlete or singer, that life goes on, and you aren’t who you once were,” he continued. “That’s life. I always say if you want to hear me sound like I did on ‘Alive!’, go listen to ‘Alive!’ That said, I have no problem doing what I’m doing and standing by it. The songs sound awesome.”
Ever since KISS‘s “End Of The Road” trek launched last month, there has been persistent online chatter about Paul allegedly singing to a backing tape. The speculation stemmed from the fact that Stanley had been struggling to hit the high notes in many of the band’s classic songs for a number of years.
