PAUL STANLEY Says Meeting JIMMY PAGE Was 'Stunning'

The Pulse of Radio reports: Paul Stanley hardy gets star struck, but says that being introduced to Jimmy Page in 1976 was one of the greatest meetings of his life. Stanley spoke to the Las Vegas Sun and recalled that during the recording of KISS' "Destroyer" album, he finally met one of his greatest inspirations, remembering, "LED ZEPPELIN was mixing 'The Song Remains The Same' soundtrack, and we were coming into the studio after them. We were in the lobby, and Jimmy came up and he knew who I was, and who the band was. It was stunning. Not five years earlier, I was in the audience, watching LED ZEPPELIN with my mouth open, just not believing it."

Stanley, who'll turn 58 on January 20, says that the things that spurred him and KISS to super-stardom still drives the band to carry on. "There's no substitute for the enormous crowds, or the response or the mania that we see and that's directed at us," he says. "There's no substitute for me getting up onstage and having 15,000 people calling my name — y'know, all the accoutrement, all the stuff that goes along with it... the women, everything."
