Paul Stanley Quotes:

What it comes down to is, Kiss has always been a beast that has this tendency to run wild, and it needs attention and nurturing. If people are always running off and doing other projects, which has been the case, somebody has to be there for stability.

Paul Stanley

As big as my ego may be, I’m really not of the belief that I can’t be replaced. I didn’t invent the wheel. There’s someone else out there who can do what I do, maybe a little differently. I believe that Kiss is bigger than its individual members.

Paul Stanley
