A WONDERFUL THANK YOU TO PAUL FROM ECUADOR
PAULSTANLEY.com
Volunteers and a group of Ecuadorian children – who have all experienced microtia or atresia – gathered to paint their faces like Starchild to thank Paul Stanley for bringing a voice to Microtia with his New York Times best-seller Face The Music. Stanley himself suffered from Microtia and has been ambassador for AboutFace since 2010 to bring awareness and support to individuals with facial disfiguration. The photo was arranged as a surprise for Dr. Sheryl Lewin, a Microtia surgeon at K and B Surgical Center and former of the Earicles foundation, who was in town to educate about Microtia and treatment options.

Paul Stanley From KISS On What You Really Need To Stay Successful

By Ruth Blatt Contributor

“It’s a pretty safe statement to say that most entertainers have self worth issues and image issues, inferiority issues.” That’s KISS’s Paul Stanley, talking to me about his new memoir, Face the Music: A Life Exposed. “ Let’s face it, getting up on a stage or getting up in front of people is not a normal thing to do ,” he continued. “You do it because you’re seeking approval on a mass scale when you don’t get it on a small scale. So if you’re not going to address that as you become successful then the clock is ticking because of all the possible poisons that will enter into your life. Unless you can look elsewhere to remedy whatever the problems are, you’re a fatality waiting to happen, if not in terms of your life then certainly in terms of your career.”

The statement isn’t too surprising given that KISS is increasingly known for their internal strife. The conflict over KISS’s legacy – and the people who go down in history as the architects of its success – has come to head over KISS’s recent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Stanley’s refusal, along with co-founder Gene Simmons, to perform at the ceremony with the band’s original lineup.

The details of their beefs are available elsewhere. My conversation with Stanley focused on how he avoided the career suicide that led to the ousting of original drummer Peter Criss and the ungraceful exit of original lead guitarist Ace Frehley.

First was the realization that the flip side of success is the inevitable precipice you reach. Here is how Stanley describes it in his book: “I was being pulled up the big hill, knowing we were going to reach the top at any moment and then plunge down the other side, falling, screaming, with no control whatsoever. I could feel the momentum, the process of being pulled up the hill. I could tell we had reached a point of no return. All I could do was hold on real tight.”

NORTH CAROLINA MARATHON GETS ED!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
This year I ran my very first Half Marathon: The Rock N Roll in Raleigh, NC. The Marathon was the same was the same week as Hall of Fame Inductions too so that made the makeup even more important to me as a forever KISS fan. (We had to change our names a little: our "Speed Demon" had a top 10 finish.) Had to share our favorite finish line faces! See you all in Cleveland in August!

Schuyler Hoversten Talks LA KISS Reality Show and Local Broadcast deal

By Jeremy Meyer

During our first chat with Los Angeles KISS president Schuyler Hoversten, we discussed the road he has taken to join KISS and the business side of running a brand new franchise that was technically build from scratch. This time around, we discuss the two huge broadcasting deals that the team has been able to set up. The first, being the reality show and the second, is the deal with local CBS station KCAL9.

1. Let's just start with congrats on two television deals. I believe, KISS is one of the first teams with this kind of a TV blanket on ESPN, KCAL9 as well as the reality show all in year one.

We’re the only team to have this kind of exposure period. We’re thrilled to be aligned with KCAL 9 as they are truly the pinnacle brand in this market and will fuel our success in our inaugural season. We are also excited that 6 of our games will be nationally broadcast on ESPN 2 and CBS Sports. The AMC Docu-Series is truly a game-changer as it will put a much deserved spotlight on what we’re building in LA in addition to the incredible caliber of players in this sport and their stories.

2. Let’s discuss the reality show first in regards to what is it going to be? Will it be a Hard Knocks kind of show or something else. Will it be more football or more Gene?

The show wont rely on Gene and Paul, as the challenge of what we are attempting to accomplish in such a short period of time makes for good TV itself. Everything I have heard back from the executives at AMC has been overwhelmingly positive and we could quickly become their next big hit!
