In an interview with SPIN, KISS icon Paul Stanley opened up about his initial feelings in the very first days of the Covid-19 pandemic and revealed he didn’t want to do anything for a long time.
As you may know, the rhythm guitarist and co-lead singer of KISS, Paul Stanley has been using his social media accounts to express his opinions on various social and political matters. Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Stanley often takes his Twitter account to warn fans to wear masks, stay at home, and be careful about going into crowded places.
During a recent conversation he joined, Paul Stanley talked about how he has been dealing with the pandemic and shared his views about what the future holds for the whole world. Stanley revealed that he was actually in shock when the coronavirus pandemic started since he has never seen such a thing that caused everything in the world to stop.
The KISS icon stated that he didn’t do much at the beginning since he wasn’t sure until when the world would struggle with this pandemic. However, Paul mentioned the new hope that he and many people had with the vaccines being available which might lead to the end of the pandemic.
Furthermore, Paul Stanley pointed out one of the best outcomes of this challenging experience which is the fact that people are now more aware of the importance of each other. Stanley stated that human contact and support was one of the most significant things which many people realized after the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
Here’s what Paul Stanley stated about the pandemic and the lesson each person should get from this experience:
“Initially, I was in shock. I think it just was so surreal that it kind of stopped everybody in their tracks and we had to get reoriented. Initially, I did very little. I pretty much stayed in the house. Nobody knew the parameters of what we could do. I’m sure we all remember wiping down shopping bags and groceries.
Time has a way of getting away from you during this pandemic. People, I think, are seeing this light at the end of the tunnel of vaccines, but sadly, a vaccine doesn’t do any good unless you’re vaccinated, and most of us haven’t been.
One of the best things to come out of this horrible situation is people hopefully realizing how important we are to each other. And that human contact and support are really essential. And maybe, hopefully, that’s one of the lights we can carry through once this is over — appreciating one another and realizing how much we really need each other.”
