Paul Stanley has been the driving force behind three decades of KISS, perhaps rocks' most vital veteran band. As co-founder/lead singer and rhythm guitarist of super group KISS, Paul Stanley's career spans 25 records, 20 years ofworldwide touring experience, and over 70 million in album sales! With a hugely successful KISS MTV Unplugged appearance in 1995, a re-union of the original members in 1996 for the years best grossing tour, ALIVE/WORLDWIDE, and KISS' 26th record featuring new material by Gene, Paul, Ace, and Peter due out later this year, Paul Stanley is poised to write more rock'n'roll history in 1998 with his Washburn.
From the first KISS record in 1973, Stanley has been a strong visual, vocal, and songwriting focal point for KISS' attack & infamy. The ringleader in the live KISS experience, Paul Stanley became a spokesman for the 70's rock'n'roll revival captured on KISS' first major mega-hit, Rock'n'roll All Nite off the perennial ALIVE! (1975). As KISS' Starchild, Stanley's grip on fantasy, hook-ladden songwriting, rockstar savvy, and live performance struck a chord with America's youth.
Stanley has penned such Billboard, MTV, and International Mega-Hits as Hard Luck Woman, I Was Made For Loving You, Shandi, Forever, Heavens' On Fire, Tears Are Falling, All Hell's Breakin' Loose, Everything To Me, and the aforementioned Rock'n'roll All Nite as well as such KISS classics as Strutter, Love Gun, Detroit Rock City, Black Diamond, Firehouse, and God of Thunder.
