Samuli Vaananen of Finland's Radio Nova conducted an interview with KISS drummer Eric Singer when the band played in Helsinki on June 3. You can now listen to the chat in two parts below.
Asked about all the talk of KISS possibly continuing one day without any of the original members, Singer said: "Look, I've learned in life — not just in KISS, but in life — just take it one day at a time."
He continued: "The interesting thing that I always find, that people will ask, not just interviewers, but fans in general, you could be on tour, like right now we're here today... 2013, playing a show in Helsinki, and everybody wants to ask you what's going on tomorrow? It's like... well, what about today? Or they all wanna ask you about the the past. I mean, you can't change the past and you don't necessarily know what's going to happen in the future. But we do know one thing's for sure: we are here today and we're gonna play and put on a great show. So I try to learn to take that attitude about live in the moment, live for today. I'm not saying you don't have to think about tomorrow, but you can't worry about tomorrow. Yesterday's gone, tomorrow you don't know what's gonna happen. So just live one day at a time, try to learn to live in the moment. And I think that's important thing is that just everybody..."
He added: "Hey, there could be no KISS right now anymore, so the people that want to complain about 'I don't like this,' or 'I don't like that,' They should play this song,' or 'I only want the original band,' the bottom line is this is how KISS exists right now, in 2013. Be glad that there's some version of KISS and that we're out there touring.
"Hey, we have just as much passion and care just as much as the band ever did or ever could, and that's what counts. If we didn't we wouldn't be here....you think...I mean, Gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley] don't need the money. They don't need to do this. They do it because they love doing it."
