KISS co-founder and co-lead singer Paul Stanley had a recent interview with New York Post, and revealed that they are not goint to wear any makeup on their farewell tour, End Of The Road.

New York Post:

“So why did you guys decide to hang up the makeup after all these years?”

Paul Stanley:

“We take tremendous pride in what we do, and we have a tremendous responsibility, not only to the fans but to our legacy. If we were a band wearing T-shirts and jeans, we could do this into our 90s, but… We’re carrying 30 to 40 pounds of gear and running around and making it look easy.

Our idea was to make sure that, before we reach a point of diminishing returns, we go out and, in essence, take a victory lap. We don’t wanna go out with a whimper; we wanna go out with a bang.”

New York Post:

“Will you miss wearing the makeup?”

Paul Stanley:

“It’s so much a part of me that whether it’s on my face or in my blood, it’s always there… So whether I ever put it on again or not, it’s part of me. The tattoo is on the inside, also.”

New York Post:

“What separates Paul Stanley from your Kiss alter ego, the Starchild?”

Paul Stanley:

“You behave differently in different situations. When I’m at dinner, I don’t stand on the table and yell for people to pass the salt. When I’m in an arena, it’s a different situation… But I’m never wearing a disguise. This is never a masquerade.”
