PAUL STANLEY To Play Hollywood's House Of Blues In November?

KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley is rumored to have scheduled a solo gig at the House of Blues in Hollywood, California on November 14. The concert is expected to be part of a solo trek in support of Stanley's new solo album, "Live to Win", due on October 24, 2006 via New Door Records/Universal Musical Enterprises.

"Live to Win" was self-produced by Stanley, who provides lead vocals, guitar and percussion alongside a studio core of guitarist Corky James (AVRIL LAVIGNE, THE MATRIX), drummer Victor Indrizzo (BECK, MACY GRAY) and keyboardist Harry Sommerdahl (CARRIE UNDERWOOD, LINDSAY LOHAN). Also performing on the album are former KISS bandmate Bruce Kulick and guitarist John 5.

While the heartfelt "Loving You Without You Now" was written without any outside collaboration, the remainder of the album reunites Stanley with former KISS songwriting partners Desmond Child (AEROSMITH, LEANN RIMES) and Holly Knight (TINA TURNER, PAT BENATAR), and introduces new collaborators including Andreas Carlsson (BON JOVI, BRITNEY SPEARS), John 5 (ROB ZOMBIE, MARILYN MANSON) and Marti Frederiksen (AEROSMITH, FAITH HILL). Seven of the ten tracks were co-written with Child and/or Carlsson, with Stanley and Child joined by John 5 on "Where Angels Dare" and Frederiksen on "Lift", and Knight teaming with the frontman on "It's Not Me".
