The Celebrites Gallery of Celebrity Fine Art has just released a new painting from KISS frontman Paul Stanley. It's another self portrait, but this time of Paul in makeup — titled "Love Gun" (view the painting at this location). Gallery owner Gerard Marti informed Kiss Kollector Online that the limited edition print of Paul's new painting will be ready next week. It will be priced at $1,200, in a limited run of 300 copies, with the size being 24" x 18". Like all limited edition prints of Paul's paintings, this one will come with a personalized letter from the artist. Check out some of Stanley's other paintings at this location.
As previously reported, Stanley recently confirmed to ABC Radio's ePrep that his new solo album will be called "Live to Win". Paul is still in the process of shopping the record to labels in various countries, explaining, "There's nothing worse, that I've seen in the past, [than] when you have a deal, let's say in America, and the company in Germany hates your album." To combat that, the singer is seeking out different labels internationally to assure they're all excited about the CD. He expects it to be in stores in about four months.
Stanley is planning a tour to support the CD, and says he'll be bringing out a bigger band than he's used at past solo gigs, "because there's a lot more going on on this album." He estimates he'll have about six people in his band. As for the musicians he used during the recording of "Live to Win" — a list which includes session drummer Victor Indrizzo, guitarist Corky James, former MARILYN MANSON and current ROB ZOMBIE guitarist John 5, former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick (who plays bass on a few songs) and noted string arranger David Campbell — Stanley says, "[It's] some friends of mine — it's not a 'who's who.' I didn't want to do one of those albums where you list people and it becomes some sort of a, trying to impress everybody with names. So it's a great album. Everybody loves it." Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Wake Up Screaming" and "Second to None".
