Paul Stanley Says KISS Have Traded Groupies For Family

Paul Stanley says that the days of KISS being surrounded by groupies are over; now, he adds, the groupies have been replaced by families.

"Clearly, there was a time where backstage was hedonism at its finest," Stanley told Bravewords.

"I look over to the side of the stage on certain nights and see my little ones in their pajamas waiting for the show to be over, so that they can go to bed. Family, which at one point had no place in my life or in rock and roll in general, has become common place."

He added that he's fine with the demographic shift, and happy to focus on the music:

"I've got a family and the Bacchanalia that was backstage at one point is not there anymore, but the celebration of the core of it which is celebrating life and the freedom to be who you are has never changed."
