KISS frontman Paul Stanley released his new book Backstage Pass today and made a recent interview with Paste Magazine.

Paul said that he believes KISS can continue without him or any original members.

Here is his statement:

“I’m well aware of my own mortality, and as much as I might like to go on forever, I won’t. And even at this point, there are no 67-year-old basketball players, football players, but you’re looking at a guy here who’s basically doing the same thing and has all the scars and stitches and screws and what have you to prove it. At some point, that has to stop.”

I think that KISS has served a huge purpose and brings incredible joy to people on the ‘End Of The Road’ tour. The shows are packed, and not only with the early followers of the band, but people who have heard the legend of what this band does live. And it’s something that’s more than music.

It really is a preaching of self-empowerment and the idea that anything that you’re willing to work hard for, you can probably attain. And the idea of celebrating life. Things that may seem simplistic or overtly simplistic, but actually have a timeless depth to them. So when bands continue, ultimately the people in ’em need to change or have to, because of circumstances.”
