As they rock world waits on the probable announcement of a KISS / DEF LEPPARD summer tour, Paul Stanley is already doing press for his eagerly awaited autobiography, “Face The Music: A Life Exposed”. The memoir will be released on April 8 — two days before KISS is inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Although Stanley has been vocal about his issues with co-founding members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, he talks in the new book about the problems in keeping a partnership going with Gene Simmons over the decades, telling The Pulse Of Radio that it’s taken a lot of work to keep the pair moving forward and on the same page. “Oh, sure,” he said. “That over the years that’s been an ongoing theme in our relationship. But time is the ultimate judge, and the fact that we’ve been together, at this point for, 40 — my gosh — almost 44 years says volumes. There have been times where I’ve been very angry and resentful — and I’m not saying momentarily — I’m saying for long periods of time. But, in time, everything falls in place and you get a better perspective — hopefully. If you don’t expect from someone what’s not possible, then you won’t be disappointed.”

Stanley spoke frankly of a particularly icy moment in KISS history when, during the 1980s, Simmons seemed far more interested in an acting career than being the type of partner Stanley had come to rely on in KISS throughout the ’70s. “It’s much easier to do that when you know somebody else is gonna run with it. [Laughs] It’s much easier to abandon ship when you know that someone is going to bail water. That was more than annoying and hurtful. It was unjust, because to cap that off — he still wanted to be paid equally. Well, that’s insult to injury. Who gets paid for not doing their job? Doesn’t work like that.”

KISS will play a rare unplugged concert on April 3 at Highland, California’s San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino. The gig is being dubbed “An Acoustic Evening And Stories With Kiss”, which recalls not only the band’s impromptu performances at past KISS conventions, but the original lineup’s legendary 1995 reunion as part of “MTV Unplugged”.

The acoustic show will be filmed by AMC as part of the upcoming reality show based around the AFL football team the L.A. Kiss, which is part owned by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.
