Paul Stanley Explains The KISS Oshawa Miss And It's Not The Lame Excuse Gene Gave

(Blabbermouth) Dan Robson of TheStar.com reports that KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley was a little more understanding than his bandmate Gene Simmons about the media's role in spoiling [what they now claim was a] surprise the band had in store for Oshawa the Canadian city that had won an online voting competition to determine whose hometown would be included in the group's "Kiss Alive 35" tour.

"You may hear a slightly different story from Gene, but so be it," Stanley said. "The media was carrying the dissent and upset feeling of the fans. They weren't creating anything, they were reporting it. Don't blame the messenger." [Paul was speaking of Gene's insult of the press and the fans when he issued his lame attempt at an excuse story here]

Stanley said Oshawa was actually going to be on next leg of the tour, which hadn't been announced yet. The outcry from Oshawa's KISS fans compelled the band to make a change and play there sooner. "October 7 was not originally deemed the day we were playing Oshawa," Stanley said. But "to sooth everybody's hurt feelings and concerns" KISS decided to launch their new album in the KISS-loving city. - more on this story
