KISS: Paul Stanley interviewed at Jewish Community Center in San Francisco

As part of promoting the launch of his newly-published memoir, “Face The Music: A Life Exposed”, KISS frontman Paul Stanley sat down with San Francisco Chronicle pop music critic Aidin Vaziri for an extended interview before a packed house at the city’s Jewish Community Center on April 25, and video of the event is available.

Published April 8, the 432-page memoir chronicles Stanley’s life and rise to global success with KISS, which he co-founded in January of 1973 with bassist Gene Simmons from the ashes of the pair’s previous band, Wicked Lester.

“Face The Music: A Life Exposed” recently debuted at No. 2 on the New York Times "Hardcover Nonfiction" best sellers list.

Two days after the book was published, Stanley and the original lineup of KISS were inducted into the 2014 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame at a ceremony in New York, alongside Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, and The E Street Band.

HBO will broadcast the 29th annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony on May 31.

KISS and Def Leppard will launch a co-headlining summer tour of North America, which will hit more than 40 cities when it kicks off June 23 in West Valley City, Utah.
