- Robin Zander has taken exception to recent comments by KISS’ Paul Stanley, who said classic rock acts are stuck playing old hits because fans aren’t interested in new material.
- “I think the difference is that we make records for ourselves, not necessarily for fans and stuff,” the Cheap Trick singer says. “We’ve always just made records for ourselves. I think if we stopped making records and stopped writing songs, we’d probably quit. That’s the point; that’s the way we look at it. Paul, he’d just soon rest on his laurels and go out there and play and cash in.”
- Zander’s comments come about a month after Stanley told USA Today he didn’t see a reason for KISS to make new music.
