PAUL STANLEY Glad To Have 'Rock Star' House Band On Tour

November 6, 2006

Launch Radio Networks reports: KISS singer-guitarist Paul Stanley's got a hot band with him on his solo tour behind his album "Live To Win", and it's one that a lot of people know. Stanley is on the road with the house band from the "Rock Star" reality TV show, who worked with INXS on the program's first season in 2005, and then earlier this year with MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee, former METALLICA bassist Jason Newsted, and one-time GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Gilby Clarke. Stanley told Launch that he wasn't a huge fan of "Rock Star", but that the backing group won him over instantly. "You know, the show was mildly entertaining, but the band was incredible!" he said. "From the first time I saw it, I was just blown away by how good they were, and said, 'When I go out on tour, those'll definitely be the guys who I want to go with.'They're a great bunch, and we sound pretty damn good."

Stanley and the "Rock Star" house band will shoot their performance at the House Of Blues in Chicago tonight (Monday, November 6) for a DVD.

In addition to being on tour, Stanley's also been doing a lot of interviews for his solo album "Live To Win" and for the new "Kissology" DVD set. All that work led to some problems, and Stanley was ordered by doctors to rest his voice, so he had to cancel his gig at The Rave & Eagles Club in Milwaukee on Friday (November 3). There's been no word on if it will be rescheduled.
