Paul just celebrated his birthday yesterday and is basking in the glory of six Ultimate Classic Rock awards for the Kiss album, “Monster” while the band enjoys the 40th anniversary this month of its founding back in January 1973.

And Kiss is poised to continue their worldwide tour in support of Monster, which was released last October.

Stanley Harvey Eisen was born on January 20, 1952 in New York City, best known as the guitarist, songwriter, and co-lead singer/co-frontman of Kiss.

Kiss were the champions of the reader-selected 2012 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards, taking home six trophies, including Album and Artist of the Year.

The 2nd leg of their world tour kicks off in Australia on February 28th.

Paul has said he’s working on his autobiography, somewhat reluctantly, according to an article at

“Stanley has long had an aversion to the idea of penning his memoirs. In 2007, he said, “Tooting my own horn is of no interest to me … it takes you away from real life. It’s a waste and I don’t find a need to sing my own praises.” But it’s possible that the recent successes of Peter Criss‘ and Ace Frehley‘s books, as well as Gene Simmons‘ 2001 book ‘Kiss and Make-up’ have made him want to tell his side of the story, something that was not lost on Stanley.

“[A]t this point, with the three other guys from the original lineup having written books….It’s kind of like, ‘OK, have you all said your piece? OK? Now let me tell you what happened.’”
