Paul Stanley Calls Out Gene Simmons ‘Sabotage’


Paul Stanley acknowledged a Gene Simmons sabotage! The declaration, which came in the form of high-praise, came during a new interview with Dean Delray’s podcast entitled “Let There Be Talk”. Here, the KISS co-lead singer acknowledged that while Simmons is one of the most ‘underrated bass players’, his personality tends to ‘sabotage and eclipse’ that. During the same interview, Stanley revealed how he lost millions of dollars. 

As Stanley himself told Delray during the interview: “Actually on ‘I Was Made For Loving You’, that was Gene [Simmons]. Gene, by the way, is, unfortunately, one of the most underrated bass players because all the other stuff he does and his personality tends to eclipse or sabotage the fact that he is a phenomenal bass player. Any rock bass player worth their salt will tell you that’s the case, he’s just terrific.”

Stanley would continue: “Gene was a big fan of [The Rolling Stones’] Ron Wood when Ronnie was playing bass as well as [Cream’s] Jack Bruce, [Mountain’s] Felix Pappalardi and [Paul] McCartney. Gene has got great roots and so he played bass on that. I played bass on ‘Love Gun’, ‘Tears Are Falling’, can’t remember what else.  You know, I understand sometimes that the show and the razzle-dazzle tends to overshadow, if not eclipses what else is going on.

KISS icon Paul Stanley revealed this creepy wife photo recently. The legendary KISS member would also discuss with Delray about the first time he saw Led Zeppelin live.

As Stanley explained: “I saw [Led] Zeppelin in, I think it was August of 1969, between the first and second [records]. They were actually playing ‘What Is And What Should Never Be’, a couple of those tracks and Jimmy [Page] had his bow and they were panning his guitar left and right so he could point it. I was just absolutely blown away. “To this day, I’ve never seen anything that was that perfect. Not just in terms of the synchronicity and the fact that everybody was so much on the same playing field, it was the sexual energy that was coming off the stage, the flamboyance, the cocksure attitude. They backed it up. I think they knew how great they were.”

Stanley concluded:

“First of all, the band was spectacular and played, I won’t use any profanity, but they played tighter than a something. So, they were amazing. And Robert Plant was singing like something from another planet. Plant was hitting notes effortlessly, and there was such bravado in everything they were doing, it just blew me away.” Paul Stanley revealed this terrible Jimmy Page photo not too long ago.
