KISS’ Paul Stanley
KISS fans filled Kanbar to capacity and greeted Paul Stanley with a thunderous ovation when he appeared April 25 in conversation with the Chronicle’s pop music critic Aidin Vaziri. Stanley spoke frankly about being born with only one ear and the impact that had on his life, the break-up of the original band, and his feelings (cynical at best) about KISS’s acceptance into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Funny, thoughtful, candid, he was a very classy rock star. And very generous with fans afterwards as he posed for pictures up till the minute he was whisked away to fly back to L.A.
