KISS frontman Paul Stanley recently guested on the new podcast Movies, Music & Munchies to discuss his new project, Soul Station. In the clip below fans hear about his childhood struggles, successes, work ethics, with most of the discussion focusing on his 13-piece tribute to Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, The Temptations, Al Green and The Jackson 5.
Soul Station is a ten piece coalition of some of today’s leading musicians paying tribute to an era of great soul music.
“When I was a boy, before I ever saw The Who or Led Zeppelin, I saw Solomon Burke and Otis Redding. I saw the Temptations. It’s tragic to think that so many people are missing out on experiencing the power of so many great bands, artists and that incredible music,” said Stanley. “That music is part of the foundation of all the music I’ve made and Soul Station is my chance to celebrate it for a night that’s real and live.”
To clarify further he adds, “I don’t play guitar in the band and we don’t do a single KISS song. That’s not what this is about,” Stanley continues. “It’s magical to hear those songs played right and we’re making magic.”
