In an interview with Billboard, KISS frontman Paul Stanley said that he believes that band should and will continue without any original member one day.
He said: “The thought of me not being involved certainly comes to mind. I’m not sure about the idea of KISS coming to an end.
“We’ve built something that’s so iconic, and I think it transcends any of the members so I can certainly see me not being there, seriously.
“There was a time where people said it had to be the four of us and those people are already 50% wrong. So I’m betting [another absence] could be overcome, too.”
He also talked about his passion for painting:
“I enjoy going to the galleries, I enjoy meeting people. People acquire pieces and we get a chance to talk about those pieces and I’m interested in their take and what they’re getting out of the piece. I’m a big believer that people are intimidated by art and theater because critics have intimidated them. Nobody needs to be told what good art is; Good art is what you like and bad art is what you don’t like.
“I would love to get people to realize they don’t have to justify their opinions about anything and just find what makes them happy and embrace it. I hate when people preface what they’re going to say with, ‘Well, I don’t know anything about art.’ There’s nothing to know. You either like it or you don’t. End of story.”
