KISS co-founder and the frontman of the band, Paul Stanley, was the recent interview guest of Patrick Ryan of USA Today and shared his feelings after releasing his debut album with his side-band Soul Station and his biggest regret about Gene Simmons that shattered him these days.
Last week, Paul Stanley’s sideband Soul Station which aims to pay tribute to the greatest artists and records from the R&B, Soul, and Jazz genres has released their debut album named ‘Now And Then.’
While the latest single of the album named ‘O-Oh Child’ got excellent reviews from the authorities, Paul Stanley is making continuous interviews to promote his latest album. In his latest interview, Paul Stanley was asked whether he feels regretful Gene Simmons wound up singing the legendary KISS song ‘God Of Thunder‘ despite he’s the lyricist of the son.
According to Paul’s statement, he felt shattered after listening to Gene despite it was a character-defining song for Gene and he did a great job at all.
Here is what Paul Stanley said:
“Oh gosh, I was devastated. I was broken. I brought the song in and I thought it was this signature song for me. We brought in a producer for many reasons, and one of them was to be the tiebreaker between Gene and I, because there certainly were times where Gene and I were at odds.
So I played “God of Thunder” and Bob goes, ‘That’s great, Gene is singing it,’ and we go on to something else. And I’m just there shattered. In hindsight, it couldn’t have been a better move. It’s such a character-defining song for Gene and he did it so great. Sometimes you’re lucky to be wrong.”
