KISS: Paul Stanley’s mother passes

Eva Eisen, the mother of KISS singer/guitarist Paul Stanley (real name Stanley Eisen), died on Saturday at the age of 88.

In a message entitled, “Our Deepest Sympathies To Paul,” KISS members Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer shared the news with fans, writing “From the earliest days of KISS until recently, Eva was always seen by fans at New York area shows. We send our deepest sympathies to Paul and his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.”

“My mother found so much pleasure and fulfillment in all the various types of music that she so loved,” writes Paul. “It was through her that I too found that same passion. She lived long enough to see, enjoy and love an extended family that included her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She found numerous ways to contribute to her community and was appreciated and loved by those who knew her. My mom was the matriarch of our family and words cannot express our loss.”

KISS will release their new album, “Monster,” on October 9.
