Paul Stanley - Live To Win

No visuals, but here it is! The long anticipated debut single. Upon first listen, all I can say is that it's much better than Gene's solo effort...

Hmmmm, it sounds like Disturbed, or a similar-type band. Better than Gene's effort but very generic rock. I'm not humming it and I just finished listening to it. I hope this isn't the best track on the album.

Yeah... After listening to it again, it kind of sounds... what are the words I'm looking for...? Oh that's it: totally fucking lame! I'll still buy your crappy album Paul, but listening to it more than once a day for the first 2 days is another matter altogether.

Sincerely,

By the way, where in the holy hell is Chopper and Mr. Energy? It appears they've turned their backs on our face-painted brothers and are undoubtedly spending their time on Van Halen blogs and the like.... For shame.

And now that I think of it, Mr. Energy boasted that he took his picture with Gene but I never saw said pic. This was roughly a year ago. Any time you're ready to share, Mr. Energy, if that is your real name, Kiss and Smell is ready.

JPX said...

Yeah, boo Chopper and Mr. Energy! I had high hope for the boys and their vast Kistorical knowledge. Yeah Mr. Energy, you need to prove that you met Gene, where's the pic?

Yeah Live to Win is lame. Paul seems to copy the style of other bands and did not place his personal stamp on this song. I really believe that this is going to suck but perhaps we'll get one good cut off it.

All right, KISStorians, I'm here - some of you may know me as Mr. Energy, but for this site, this is me.

The whole meeting Gene thing went as follows: I sure as hell met him, and I sure as hell took pictures. I even took pictures with Kobe Tai, the porn star that was "hanging out" with him for the day.

I took them on a crappy disposable camera (a promotional camera from Crest toothpaste, mind you) and I neglected to develop the pictures right away. By the time I got around to it, several months down the road, everything was fogged and blurry. Believe me, any comments you can dish out will do no damage compared to the kicking of myself I did.

My girlfriend at the time (Krista) can vouch for said meeting, as can her ass (it was grabbed several times by the God Of Thunder. In a way, I feel like I did KISS...)

Other eyewitness testimony: my brother's friend Matt Greiner, who just happened to be walking thru the neighborhood in NY where we were shooting. At one point I opened Gene's trailer door from inside, he happened to be passing at THAT very moment, and the look on his face was worth more than any picture. He suddenly realized, in order, "Hey! There he is! And he's in a trailer! And is that...Gene Simmons behind him?" Greiner just kind of smiled like, "You're the coolest person I know," and moved on down the street.

We talked about Family Guy, Ace & Peter, his new album Asshole, and the likelihood of my girlfriend sticking around after I left. It was one of the best hours of my life, and I can barely remember what I said to him.

So there may be a lack of photographic evidence, but a true KISStorian knows that facts only get in the way when we talk about KISS.

Till next time...

This song is just so awful, seriously. Garbage...
