Paul talks about his favorite thing, Paul

The Beatles had Paul McCartney. Led Zeppelin had Robert Plant. KISS have PAUL STANLEY.

"I wanted the freedom to explore my own abilities and disregard any self set boundaries. The only limitations we have are the ones we choose to accept and this album was about ignoring anyone else’s ideas of what I would, could or shouldn’t do," Stanley says to summarize Live to Win. "This isn’t about forcing KISS fans someplace that they haven’t been, though everyone’s invited to come along. This is really about me doing an album for me, and first and foremost I had to please myself. I’d like to think that if I can please myself, I’m going to please some other people, but this is a personal work – If I had ever knuckled under to people telling me what was impossible and what I was capable of and incapable of, we wouldn’t be having this conversation, there wouldn’t be a KISS, and there wouldn’t be a ‘Live to Win.’ To that end, by recording this album, I’ve already succeeded…

"The album is called Live to Win, and I’ve already won."

My guess at the chorus lyrics of Live to Win weren't too far off! Check out my comment on the last post about Paul's album. OK, did Paul really compare himself to Michelangelo?

Based on that article I figure that half the album is slow. God Paul loves to talk about himself doesn't he? It's funny because he makes half-hearted attempts to credit other people for helping him, but in the end you just know he thinks it's all him.
