Paul Stanley states “anything is possible” for ex-KISS members jamming on stage during final tour
KISS frontman Paul Stanley was recently interviewed by teenage radio host Miles “The Shoe” Schuman at the Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp and spoke about KISS‘ End Of The Road World Tour.
Stanley was asked whether we might possibly see some former KISS band members come up and jam on stage with KISS during the final tour to which the singer replied (as transcribed by Sleaze Roxx): “Anything is possible. Yeah. I have learned to never say never. It’s really a celebration of the band and not a particular line-up. it’s a celebration of what we’ve managed to do with this amazing, this amazing army of ours so uhh, excluding somebody, I don’t think that would happen.”
Schuman pointed out how he would love to see ex-KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick get up and do something [with KISS] to which Stanley cheekily replied: “So would he.”
In terms of KISS continuing on without Gene Simmons and himself, Stanley opined: “Yeah, why not. There are a lot of places we play… We were in Portugal and Spain. We were doing anywhere from 20,000 to 50,000 people. People come to see KISS. they come to see that connection between the band and the fans, and what they expect from us and what we try to deliver, and I don’t think that’s a… I don’t think that’s exclusive to anybody in particular including me.”
In terms of how it would work and whether they would start auditioning people after the final tour, Stanley stated: “I have no idea. We’ve been talking concept. We’re just… It’s a hypothetical at this moment. Is it possible? Sure. How would we do it? Clueless.”
