Paul Stanley's backing band was the house band from the CBS-TV show "Rock Star" — Paul Mirkovich (keyboards), Jim McGorman (guitar), Rafael Moreira (lead guitar), Nate Morton (drums) and Sasha Krivstov (bass). They appeared on the first — and so far only — two seasons of the show: "Rock Star: INXS" and "Rock Star: Supernova".
"Live To Dream!" is an insider's glimpse into the creative process of Paul Stanley and his concert film titled "One Live Kiss", which was directed by Louis Antonelli. The cameras shadow Antonelli as he works behind the scenes to capture Stanley's solo performance in Chicago. Stanley's back-up band for the tour is the house band featured on CBS-TV's "Rock Star".
"Live To Dream!" features interviews with Paul Stanley, Louis Antonelli, KISS manager Doc McGhee, band members Jimmy McGorman, Rafael Moreira and Nate Morton, as well as a dozen fans from the Chicago show.
Director D.P. Carlson shares producer, camera and editing credit with longtime collaborator Mike Weber. Brian Kobeluch created the graphics and animations.
