Paul Stanley states it’s an insult to the fans when bands make songs unrecognizable
KISS have always prided themselves on bringing an amazing live show to their fans.
The group’s frontman Paul Stanley was recently interviewed by Lacrosse Tribune and spoke out against bands that change their songs in a live setting to make them unrecognizable. Stanley stated in the interview: “Everything we play are songs that I love… There isn’t a song we do I’m not proud of. When bands change songs that make them totally unrecognizable, it’s because they’re bored. The truth is, it’s an insult to the fans. ‘Love Gun,’ ‘Detroit Rock City,’ ‘Rock and Roll All Night’ — those are great songs that have stood the test of time.”

Recently, Sleaze Roxx attended a Guns N’ Roses concert where one song was barely recognizable. Sleaze Roxx stated in its concert review: “Next up was what seemed like some sort of jam that turned out to be “Double Talkin’ Jive.” If I didn’t know the chorus so well, I would have likely been unable to recognize the song. Another loss of momentum.”
