Kiss’ Paul Stanley recently dismissed his bandmate Gene Simmons’ claim about rock music being dead. However, he noted that the “big rock band won’t be huge because it sounds like a band from the past, it will have its own voice.”
Paul Stanley opens up on the matter
Over the years, Gene has given various explanations for holding such a pessimistic stance. Most recently, however, he put aside his provocative public persona to argue that rock might not be dead and that there are many amazing young bands, but that they’ll never get the chance his generation did.

Paul Stanley recently gave a different opinion. Speaking to Classic Rock in a new interview, The Starchild said his bandmate’s statements add up to nothing more than a “great soundbite”, and that he’s got proof of rock’s healthy state living in his house:
“It’s a great soundbite, but that’s about all it is. My son Evan is playing all around Los Angeles with a rock band that kicks ass and is getting great crowds, with beautiful models coming, and that’s proof to me that rock’s not dead.”
Stanley also noted that mainstream tastes fluctuate over time, expressing firm belief that rock will once again have its moment in the sun – just not in any shape we’ve already seen:
“The music that is most popular to mainstream tastes changes over time, and it ebbs and flows. There’s a lot of rock music being made right now, and some of it may be too derivative to really stake a claim and take it to the next level, but it will happen, it will happen. But the next big rock band won’t be huge because it sounds like a band from the past, it will have its own voice.”
