Kiss' Paul Stanley: The smell of greasepaint and the roar of the rodeo

"Our current stage show is the greatest one we've done - and that's not just coming from the fans, it's coming from the critics," bragged co-founder Paul Stanley. "Which is surprising to us, because we've certainly never been a band like that or built our following on that."

The theatrical, '70s-bred hard-rock band has found new life with the well-reviewed 2009 album "Sonic Boom," its first in 11 years, and the 32- date Hottest Show on Earth tour, which kicks off today at Cheyenne Frontier Days.

We talked to Stanley about the band's legacy, its broad appeal and, of course, the face paint.

Q: You're starting your national tour in Cheyenne at Frontier Days. Have you ever played a rodeo before?

A: We've done Sturgis, the big biker rally. If it's communal and tribal we're in. And honestly, Kiss is more of a tribal gathering in terms of concerts than it is a rock show. Everybody who comes shares this feeling of being part of a nation of black sheep, or being part of this massive secret society.

BISMARCK TRIBUNE
By EMILY COLEMAN

The band Kiss is like the circus meets rock 'n' roll, drummer Eric Singer said.

The band will perform at 8 p.m. on Saturday at the North Dakota State Fair.

"It's larger than life. Its takes (other performances) and puts it on steroids," Singer said. "We want people to walk away realizing that they just saw something unique and special and really got their money's worth."

Kiss concerts feature pyrotechnics and sometimes even a fireworks display at the end.

Though the show is family friendly, Singer recommends bringing ear plugs for kids because the show can get loud.

REMEMBERING A FRIEND
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hello KISS,

I had written to you a few weeks ago regarding my best friend, Tim Mullen. Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley signed his tattoo when KISS were playing here in Vancouver.

It is with great sadness that I must tell you that Tim passed away July 16th 2010 at 5:10am. He was one of your biggest fans and my best friend of over 20 years. I remember the excitement each and every time he got the chance to meet you. I believe it was something like 5 times. We had every KISS album loaded on to an iPod and he was listening to that as he drew his final breath. He had been in a coma for 5 days but, we were assured that he could hear everything so, we thought he would enjoy listening to his favorite band.

I want to thank you for making his dreams come true. The tattoo that you had signed was designed by his nephew and he got it done just before your concert. That is a memory that he spoke of often.

Thank you once again for being my best friends heroes, idols and inspiration.

Angie

WYOMING TRIBUNE EAGLE

KISS fans will "Rock and Roll All Nite" in Cheyenne.

The legendary band is kicking off their "Hottest Show on Earth" tour at Cheyenne Frontier Days on July 23.

"We're really looking forward to that (date) because we know some of our best concerts and crowds are in great places like in the middle of America like Cheyenne," said Tommy Thayer, the lead guitarist and vocalist for KISS. "It's where people know how to rock and roll. We know it will be over the top and it will be a great place to start."

Thayer confirmed that KISS has a number of new stage pyrotechnics and special effects in store for this tour.

"Yeah, KISS is always expanding and growing and pushing the limits, so in this case we're bringing the show that we just did in Europe, which is our biggest and over-the-top into amphitheaters of North America now," he said.
