Paul Stanley Facts

PAUL STANLEY picture disc. (180 gram virgin vinyl/Russian import) The purple sticker is on the outside on the clear vinyl cover.

Paul's first solo album was released on September 18, 1978.

Paul was born Stanley Harvey Eisen on January 20, 1952 and grew up in Queens, New York.

Paul attended the New York City High School of Music and Art, which was later made famous on the TV show, Fame. He later moved on to Bronx Community College as an art major, but did not graduate.

In 1967, Paul recorded a demo with his band Post War Baby Boom called 'Never Loving, Never Living' that remains unreleased.

Before Paul developed his Starchild makeup, he sported what has become known as the Bandit, which featured a Lone Ranger-type mask across his eyes. It can be seen in early promo shots for the KISS album.

Paul enlisted the talents of Bob Kulick (who previously worked on the new tracks from Alive II, and was likely going to be the guitarist for KISS before Ace auditioned) and Rod Stewart's drummer, Carmine Appice, in recording the album.

Paul Stanley's first outside songwriting job was a song co-written with Desmond Child titled "The Fight" that appeared on a 1979 album by Desmond and his band Rouge.

Peaked on the Billboard album chart at # 40-only Peter Criss' album charted worse, at #43.
