Paul Stanley

For over four decades, Paul Stanley has served as the on-stage ringleader and backstage prime mover for Kiss. After helping the famously facepainted group rise to the top of the rock world in the mid-’70s, Stanley kept the ship afloat through a series of lineup, image and musical style changes during the ’80s and early ’90s — even as his longtime musical partner Gene Simmons admittedly let his attention wander into film and television projects. In recent years, he has produced and spearheaded two well-received Kiss studio albums — ‘Sonic Boom’ and ‘Monster’ — and in 2014 he released an autobiography entitled ‘Face the Music – A Life Exposed.’

Kiss enjoy an apparently never-ending demand for their music -- and given that they play in costumes and makeup, the band could conceivably continue on as a live act with replacement players even after all of the original members decide they don't feel like performing anymore.
