VIDEO: Paul Stanley guests on Oprah special preview

KISS frontman Paul Stanley is among the guests featured on the next edition of Oprah: Where Are They Now.

In a preview of the episode, Stanley shares his first impression of future bandmate Gene Simmons.

“When I first met Gene over at a guitar player’s house that I was playing with and he was playing with in another band, I didn’t like him,” says Stanley. “I thought he was full of himself, opinionated, brash, insulting. Gene’s first comment to me was, ‘Oh, I hear you me something.’ So he was a bit smug and arrogant and full of himself…and nothing has changed.”

Oprah: Where Are They Now airs this Sunday, October 26 at 9:00PM ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network

Stanley and KISS will play their first Las Vegas residency this fall.

“KISS Rocks Vegas” will see the band perform 9 shows at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino between November 5 and 23.
