It doesn’t matter if you are a senior citizen or a teenager, you have likely heard of the band, KISS. Some people love them and other people prefer other types of music but one thing is sure, they are a band that will be remembered for years to come.
One of the members of the rock band KISS is Paul Stanley. He is the frontman for the band, but the 71-year-old is also known as a father and husband, and he does a good job of it.
Stanley and his current wife, Erin Sutton have two children, 14-year-old Sarah, and 16-year-old Colin. Stanley also has a 28-year-old son from his first wife.
When something interesting happened in his life, he went on Twitter to share it with the world. He was on a family vacation and took a picture with his youngest daughter, captioning the photo: “Family vacation! My beautiful Emily brightens the day even more!”

The rocker has not always been very open about his personal life. Perhaps that is why many were surprised when he spoke about how much of an effect becoming a father had on him in a 2018 interview. He said: “I went through quite a bit of life wondering what life was about and it just seemed like perhaps at the end of the day it didn’t mean much because we go through our lives and then we’re gone.
“With each of my children, all of which I either helped to deliver or pulled out or did all kinds of participation, it became clear to me that we only die physically because we are the product of the generations before us and we live on in the generations after us,” he added. “The children we create ultimately are the voices of us in the future.”
He then said: “We’re given these blank slates and we get to write whatever we want on them. So whatever time we put in and the effort we put in is what we get out.”
Stanley also had an interview with Howie Mandel where he talked about being a father and about his children. He said: “I was baffling to them. I was running around in tights and high heels with white makeup and putting a guitar between my legs. So, to begin with, I was a bit strange. But I think it was a little hard on them. I think it was a little hard on my dad.”
“I think it was a bit difficult for my dad to see my success when success eluded him. Look, people aren’t perfect, and my parents certainly weren’t perfect. I think it was tough for my dad because instead of looking at my successes, and seeing that he was a part of it, my dad thought of it as his inadequacies.”
