September 12 :
Paul Stanley's SOUL STATION live at The Roxy From :
KISS frontman Paul Stanley's latest solo project, an R&B band called
SOUL STATION, made its live debut last night (Friday, September 11)
at West Hollywood, California's Roxy Theatre. The ten-piece band
also features KISS drummer Eric Singer.
There were no fireworks or kabuki makeup, no lightning bolts or
platform heels, but Paul Stanley of Kiss found some genuine
emotional power in a set of classic Sixties and Seventies R&B Friday
night at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles. It was the first public
performance of Paul Stanley's Soul Station, and it was clearly a
labor of love for the singer, way outside his usual rock comfort
zone of bombast and shouting out loud.
The Starchild had come to share his true love of Motown and Philly
Before the Roxy show, Soul Station had played just twice before at
benefit events for the school attended by one of Stanley's children.
Now he plans to tour the band between his ongoing dates with Kiss.
At the end of the night, he summed up the sound and tradition he
hoped to share with his fans: "Real musicians, real music, really
