KISS cofounder Paul Stanley recently reflected on teaming up with Gene Simmons and forming their enduring partnership during an appearance on Joe Bonamassa's Live From Nerdville.
Paul shared, "When I met Gene, I didn't particularly like him. But there was pragmatism involved. You have to prioritize and figure what's most important to you to reach your goal.
And I knew that Gene and I were much stronger together than me alone. I'm not really sure that he knew that, but that became irrelevant. It was, 'How do I get where I wanna go? How do I achieve what I want?' And Gene was essential to it.
"And here we are 50-plus years later. It's astounding. We've created something that seems like it will outlast us." Check out the episode below:
