The Phantom of the Opera

Paul Stanley (, the multitalented artist and legendary co-founder and front man for the iconic group KISS, announced today that he and wife Erin Stanley, a successful attorney, are expecting their second child this winter.

The couple, who married in 2005, live in Beverly Hills with their two year old son, Colin Michael, and Stanley’s 14 year old son Evan Shane from his previous marriage.

“Erin and I are thrilled and can’t wait to meet our newest addition,” said Stanley. “We’ve been extremely blessed and we’re excited to see what the future holds. I often joke that I’ve traded the Viper Room for the diaper room and it looks like my tour’s been extended!”

He has also played to standing room only audiences in the title role of “The Phantom of the Opera” and is a widely exhibited painter whose work garnered well over $2 million in sales during 2007.

About Paul Stanley:
For more than 30 years, Paul Stanley has reigned supreme as one of the single-most recognizable front-men in the history of rock and roll. He’s the principal songwriter, driving force and unwavering voice of KISS. A visionary and trendsetter since the early 1970s, Stanley’s passion for both the musical and visual arts has perhaps been the key to the astonishing ongoing world phenomenon known as KISS. Stanley single-handedly penned such escapist anthems as “Love Gun,” “God of Thunder” and “Black Diamond.” He was the golden throat that throttled “Detroit Rock City,” the charismatic swagger behind “I Was Made For Lovin’ You,” and stripped of makeup, was the unmasked troubadour that breathed vocal life into the ballads “Reason to Live,” “Forever” and “Every Time I Look At You.” His artistic and visual input has been seen in his designs of KISS album covers, stages and apparel.

An accomplished solo performer, Stanley recently released Live to Win [New Door Records/ Universal Music Enterprises] his first solo album in more than 25 years, and second overall. In Live to Win, Stanley strips his emotions to the bone and adorns them with a melodic sheen, with songs about the power of the human spirit and commitment to not compromising ideals.

An art major and graduate of the prestigious high school of Music and Art in NYC, Stanley recently returned to his passion for painting, creating portraits and abstracts that are emotionally charged compositions. He aims to maximize the direct, physical impact of his paintings through scale, texture, color and simplicity of images. In a few short years of exhibiting, Stanley’s works have been acquired by numerous art collectors and he has been commissioned to create large works to be displayed by an international corporate entity. Stanley’s tremendous success as a painter has translated in to well over $2 million in art sales for 2007. For additional information on Paul Stanley please go to
