KISS guitarist and co-founder Paul Stanley spoke in a recent interview with Download and talked about the future and retirement of the iconic rock band.
As you might already know, bass guitarist Gene Simmons, as well as Paul Stanley, mentioned before how hard to complete a KISS show because of the weight they carry on the stage.
While talking about this problem, Paul pointed out that they already know they can not do it forever. Eventually, the retirement will come for the KISS. However, Paul thinks otherwise.
He wants to stop even before the inevitable retirement because it would be better for them. Instead of playing on the stage, Paul wants to be into the other things he wants to do.
Here is what Paul Stanley said:
“Yeah, I think I’d be kidding myself if I thought otherwise. If we were just another band in t-shirts and trainers, we could do this into our 80s.
But we’re running around on stage with 40 or 50 pounds of gear and boots with eight-inch heels, and we do it well, but I also know that we can’t do it forever.”
“So before it reaches that point, I think it’s better that we stop. I take it really seriously, so the idea of being able to do this without end, it’s just not possible.
The one thing you realize as you get older is that at some point you stop getting older.
Everything comes to an end, and there are other things I want to do. And like I said, it’s not possible to do what we do indefinitely. It’s just not.”
