Paul Stanley turned 71 and said of the future of Kiss, “When I think about the ending, it doesn’t make me happy.”

Guitarist and co-founder of Kiss Paul StanleyOn January 20, he celebrated his 71st birthday and, in an interview with American Songwriter, spoke about the band’s farewell tour “End Of The Road”, which will end at the end of 2023.

“There are about three hours of euphoria on tour and 21 hours away from home, which is honestly not fun,” described Stanley. “There are nights when I go to bed and think: “What the hell am I doing here? Why am I here when I have a family home?” So of course there’s a push and pull, but there’s nothing better than being on stage, gratitude I feel.”

In turn, he emphasized the physical work that being on stage requires: “And the workouts that I do on stage, I could not do in the gym. If you could get 10,000 or 100,000 people in the gym to cheer you up, you’d be doing things there that you couldn’t do without them, so flying over the audience on wires is great. If I try this in the afternoon when no one is around, I’m horrified. Adrenaline makes you stupid.”

Five decades after the formation of the world famous group, the guitarist talked about disbanding this live band and how it was “inevitable”.

“There are two things that are inevitable: death and taxes,” he explained. “And the demise of our living band is inevitable. Do I want to see this day? Not. But it is necessary. Before we have no choice, I would like to finish it.”

“When I think about the ending, it doesn’t make me happy”he added. “I will be thrilled to see what we have achieved and what we have done, but this is the end of an era. It’s also the end of a big part of my life.”

“I take my kids to school and do different things, but the band has been the biggest part of my life,” Stanley said. “The connection with the audience, the adrenaline rush and the excitement of being on the show – I don’t want it to end, but a lot has to end. I would like to think that at best you can control this and that is exactly what we are doing. If we were in T-shirts and jeans, we could do it in our 80s and 90s, but not in eight-inch platform heels and 40-pound clothes.”
