KISS guitarist and co-founder Paul Stanley talked about the forthcoming documentary of the band during a recent interview with The Rock Experience With Mike Brunn.
For the past few years, the documentaries of the bands are getting huge interest from the audience. The movies such as Mötley Crüe’s The Dirt and Freddie Mercury’s Bohemian Rhapsody got huge success in a short period.
Following the success of these movies, KISS also decided to make their own documentary, KISStory, and confirmed it in April. After the announcement, Paul Stanley explained why they decided to release it now.
According to Paul, things are at least winding down in terms of playing live, and it will be a perfect time to look back at what they achieved so far. In this way, they could take the victory lap before their retirements.
Paul Stanley said about KISStory:
“Now’s the best time to tell the story because things are at least winding down in terms of playing live. This is the KISS ‘End Of The Road’ tour.
So, to document and to look back upon four and a half decades, a hundred million albums, countless sold-out tours, why not now? This is the time for us to take the victory lap.”
KISS had been doing a farewell tour, ‘End Of The Road,’ but it got interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. Instead of making new records as other bands did, the band decided to make a documentary of their history, which will be aired on A&E.
