PAUL STANLEY: 'I Am Absolutely Fine!'

KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley has issued an update on his condition after he was forced to pull out of the band's July 27 show in San Jacinto, California, about 90 miles (145 km) east of Los Angeles when his heart started beating at more than twice the normal level.

"I wanted to let all of you know that I AM ABSOLUTELY FINE!" Stanley writes on his web site. "I'm going to the gym as usual, painting as usual and will be going into the recording studio this week.

"Like many, I have had a rapid heartbeat condition most of my life and I never have had any type of restrictions. When I've had an episode, although momentarily disrupting and taxing, it has no residual effect. This is nothing new and my doctors have known about it. In short, It doesn't change, hasn't changed and won't change my life.

"To make it clear... I WILL BE AT ROCK & ROLL FANTASY CAMP IN NY. I WILL BE AT THE WENTWORTH ART GALLERY SHOW in Des Peres, MO. and anything else that's on schedule. I'm stoked and looking forward to it all.

"Thanks for the literally thousands of calls and e-mails from all of you. You all mean the world to me. Now ONWARD!"

Video footage from KISS' July 27 concert is available at this location.
