KISS: VH1 Classic's 'Headline Act' To Premiere Next Week

VH1 Classic "Headline Act" presents KISS premiering on Monday, June 7 at 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. The half-hour block features an interview with KISS frontmen Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley from the VH1 Classic studio as well as classic KISS videos from their history-making career.

Simmons and Stanley also discuss the goals the band had when they first started and how they arrived ... "There was innocence and a naivete about us when we started. We were innocent in the same way a baby piranha is. It's gonna get the job done. But it does it with a smile," said Stanley.

Stanley and Simmons also talk about how their love for the music held them together all these years despite many changes. "It's interesting that off-stage the differences popped out," said Simmons. "The more years there were between us and the beginning, the more the differences were ... usually heightened by drugs and alcohol. That affected some of us and sent some of us into the twilight zone. So far I haven't succumbed. But at least two of the members have gone there and back many times."

The second half of "Headline Act" will feature KISS videos including "Rock n' Roll All Nite", "Forever", "Heaven's On Fire", "I Love It Loud", "Tears Are Falling", "Lick It Up" and "Shout It Out Loud". The episode will re-air on Tuesday, June 8 at 3:00 a.m. and Friday, June 11 at 8:00 a.m., 4:00 p.m. and midnight.
