KISS frontman Paul Stanley hasn't ruled out the possibility of recording a third solo album in the not-too-distant future. "It's not impossible," he said during an appearance on SiriusXM's "Debatable" (hear audio below). "That, to me, in some ways, is more interesting than another KISS album, although I wouldn't mind doing a few [new] KISS songs. But the idea of doing another album… I don't know… it seems kind of a built-in letdown. People tell you they want a new album, but then they go, 'That's great. Play 'Shout It Out Loud'.' So could I do another album? Yeah. And if I did another album, it would be much closer to the first one [1978's self-titled effort]. The second one [2006's 'Live To Win'] was really me making a concerted effort to not do what I normally do, and it certainly accomplished that. But, yeah, if there was another album, it would be a guitar-driven album."
Stanley also said that is currently reading the finished manuscript for his second book, the follow-up to his 2014 autobiography, "Face The Music: A Life Exposed".
"Look, I never thought I would have a book period, and 'Face The Music' was a New York Times No. 2 best seller, and it's in six languages now," he said.
"Life is interesting, because as you reach goals, you set new goals. The whole idea of bucket lists, to me, are ridiculous, because, as you cross things off your bucket list, you should be adding things — you should never complete your bucket list.
"For me, writing the next book is what's happened since then and how my life has changed," he added. "Life is an ongoing adventure, and mine is for sure."
Released in April 2014, "Face The Music: A Life Exposed" debuted at No. 2 on The New York Times' Best Sellers list for Print Hardcover Non-Fiction. On top of that, "Face The Music" debuted on the Times' Combined Print and E-Book best seller list and E-Book best sellers list at No. 3 and No. 13, respectively.
In the "Face The Music", Stanley talked frankly about his early struggles with hearing — he was born with Level 3 Microtia and is deaf in his right ear. Microtia is a congenital deformity of the cartilage of the outer ear that can affect normal hearing.
Stanley previously explained that he was the last of the four original KISS members to write an autobiography because he "didn't write a KISS book. I wasn't writing the last in a series. I don't wanna be associated with those books, 'cause most of them are junk. Autobiographies, by their nature, are junk, because they tend to be love letters to yourself. You are writing what you think is you in your best light, telling stories that probably may have been enhanced, to say the least."
KISS hasn't released a new studio album since 2012's "Monster".
