Paul Stanley Responds To Steven Tyler Jibes
"He needs a reality check" says the Kiss frontmanBlabbermouth reports that Stanley was asked by Rockline's Bob Coburn to respond to the Aerosmith frontman's claim that Kiss were "comic book" and they that they "offended" him.
A restrained Stanley said "Maybe Steven's feeling a bit full of himself because he has an album coming out."
Stanley recalled KISS' 2003 co-headlining tour with Aerosmith, telling Coburn, "Steven insisted that they close the show. I really [didn't] care because one way or the other you have to come up onstage. He had a chip on his shoulder back then. [He] was a looking down his nose a bit at KISS. Seeing him come onstage to an underwhelmed audience and [seeing] people walking out [made me smile]."
He added, "When [the new Aerosmith] album comes out, let's put [it side by side with ours and] let the music do the talking."
Stanley concluded: "Steven may have been overenthused and needs a reality check."
