See writing for your enjoyment every day can be a tough assignment. Id much rather just stare at pictures of Morrissey or bitch about people who arent vegan but you would tire of that. I can piss people off too, those Blue Rose Society folk or maybe Bobs Night Move fans but that gets old too- its like toying with the handicap.
So when I hit the wall and I find myself listening to Journeys loud ass version of “Dont Stop Believing” for inspiration its time to head over to grease paint town.. and see whats up with the old men of KISS.
They couldnt be more over- I mean its pretty much safe to call it a day when your leader pisses himself on stage but hey- if you keep paying to see them…
Paul Stanley seems to be the biggest whiner of the lot and he is BACK bitching (thank God for my sake!) with this fabulous bit of blather
“Part of the dynamic of the band was to have to pragmatically deal with the fact that two of the guys were often more interested in sabotaging the band, sabotaging Gene [Simmons] and I, than doing the right thing.”
He goes on to add, “They also wanted equal say when they didn’t do equal work. Part of what we gave the public was the myth that the four of us did everything together and contributed equally. That was something we wanted to maintain in the spirit of the bands that we loved and pictured doing that. The problem was that the guys in the band began to believe it themselves.”
As for Gene…, “I certainly see him as a brother, although we don’t always agree on how to treat your brother. At the end of the day, I know he will be there for me and me for him.” However, Stanley also had some issues with Simmons at points in KISS’ career.
“My issues have always been more rooted in participating evenly and equally and still ending up with an equal share of money. I didn’t want it with Peter and Ace, why would I want it with Gene?,” says Stanley. “He wasn’t doing his job and he was off doing other things and being paid for those things. I felt like if he wasn’t going to do his job and gonna elsewhere, it was like he took less here or he gave me some of what he was doing elsewhere. That was an ongoing problem.”
Bitchy old women in white face. So funny. Thanks guys!
