KISS frontman Paul Stanley had a conversation with Dan Rather’s The Big Interview, and AXS TV shared a preview clip from a forthcoming show.

Stanley revealed why he pursued fame and how did his plans go well.

Here is Paul’s statement:

“I had what’s called a microtia, which is basically not having an ear … I wasn’t very socially adept, and when you have something physical that sets you apart from people, it makes you the target of unrelenting scrutiny and sometimes ridicule.

At that point in your life when you become famous it’s either a disappointment because it’s not a remedy, and you either put a needle in your arm, a gun in your mouth or you live life as a victim, and I’m not cut out for that.

I was blessed to be a part of an idea to become the band we never saw, and that led me on a course that I’m still on today. Where it’s taking me, God only knows.”
