KISS Drummer ERIC SINGER - "Nothing Happens In KISS Without PAUL STANLEY Saying Yay”
June 27, 2018, 3 years ago
In a new interview with Rock Music Star, KISS drummer Eric Singer is asked who has the final say in KISS?
"People always think it’s Gene (Simmons)," says Eric. "Respectfully, Gene and Paul (Stanley) do the thing together, but I always tell people, it’s not what you think. Nothing happens in KISS without Paul Stanley saying, 'Yay.' There’s some times when Paul doesn’t care about something, and says, 'Yeah, I don’t care. Whatever.' Put it this way, if Gene wants to do it, and Eric and Tommy want to do it, and everybody else… if Paul doesn’t want to do something, we’re not doing it. If Paul wants to do it and Gene doesn’t, Gene usually says, 'Okay, whatever.' Gene usually just wants to play. He just wants to keep doing whatever we do. So, there is that."
