Stanley Bert Eisen (born January 20, 1952), better known by his stage name Paul Stanley, is an American hard rock guitarist, singer, and painter, best known for being the frontman of the rock band Kiss. He is the writer or co-writer of many of the band’s highest-charting hits. Stanley established the “Starchild” character for his Kiss persona.
Hit Parader ranked him 18th on their list of Top 100 Metal Vocalists of All Time. Gibson.com Readers Poll also named him 13th on their list of Top 25 Frontmen.
Stanley Bert Eisen was born in a Jewish family in upper Manhattan near 211th Street and Broadway; the Inwood neighborhood near Inwood Hill Park. He was the second of two children, and born two years after his sister Julia. His mother came from a family that fled Nazi Germany to Amsterdam, Netherlands and then to New York City. His father’s parents were from Poland. Stanley was raised Jewish, although he did not consider his family very observant and he was not bar mitzvahed. His parents listened to classical music and light opera; Stanley was greatly moved by Beethoven’s works. His right ear was misshapen from a birth defect called microtia; he was unable to hear on that side, thus he found it difficult to determine the direction of a sound, and he could not understand speech in a noisy environment. Attending PS 98, he was taunted by other children for his deformed ear.
Despite his hearing problem, Stanley enjoyed listening to music, and he watched American Bandstand on television. His favorite musical artists included Eddie Cochran, Dion and the Belmonts, Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard. Stanley learned to sing harmony with his family, and he was given a child’s guitar at age seven.
Stanley’s family relocated to the Kew Gardens neighborhood in Queens in 1960. He listened to a lot of doo-wop music, but when The Beatles and The Rolling Stones played on U.S. television he was inspired by the performance aspect, which he thought was not out of his reach. Stanley received his first real guitar at age 13, an acoustic one that he would have preferred to be electric. He played tunes by Bob Dylan, The Byrds, The Lovin’ Spoonful and more.
All through his childhood Stanley had been recognized for his talent at graphic arts, so he attended the High School of Music & Art in New York City and graduated in 1970. Despite his skill as a graphic artist, he abandoned that as a career, and instead played in bands.
Main article: Kiss (band)
Before Kiss, Stanley was in a local band, Rainbow (not to be confused with Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow) and was also a member of Uncle Joe and Post War Baby Boom. Through a mutual friend of Gene Simmons, Stanley joined Simmons’ band Wicked Lester in the early 1970s. The band recorded an album in 1972, but it has not been officially released (although songs from the album appeared on Kiss’s 2001 box set). Wicked Lester soon fell apart and Stanley and Simmons answered Peter Criss’s advertisement in Rolling Stone (August 31, 1972): “Expd. Rock & Roll drummer looking for orig. grp. doing soft & hard music.” Soon after recruiting Criss, they held auditions for a lead guitarist, with Stanley placing an ad in the Village Voice (December 14, 1972). Despite what Stanley, Criss, and Simmons admit was a shaky first impression, Ace Frehley won the group over both with his playing, a sound all admit was nearly a perfect fit to the group’s playing style, and with his style, showing up to the audition in Converse shoes that didn’t match (one red, one orange). Kiss released their self-titled debut album in February 1974.
Stanley’s persona in Kiss is “The Starchild” utilizing one star over his right eye. For a brief time, Stanley changed his make-up character to “The Bandit”, with a “Lone Ranger” style mask design make-up pattern. This make-up design was only used during a few mid-1973 shows. “I even tried painting my face all red,” he admitted. “I looked like a longhaired tomato! Before settling on the star, I’d just paint a black ring around my eye… Each of us wears something that reflects who we are. I always loved stars and always identified with them – so, when it came time to put something on my face, I knew it would be a star.”
In his book Sex Money Kiss, Gene Simmons says that Stanley was the driving force for Kiss during a period in the 1980s when the band decided to perform without makeup.
In 2006, Stanley resumed his association with Washburn Guitars and using the Washburn PS2000. Previously, he has had four signature guitars made by Silvertone, and tweaked the Ibanez Iceman to his specifications, calling it the PS10.

In 2007 (prior to the final show of the Hit ‘N Run Tour on July 27), Stanley was hospitalized with tachycardia. In his absence, Kiss performed live as a trio for the first time in decades. The concert was the first Kiss performance Stanley missed

Lamborghini sighted, nice roller skate! – Jon Hammond
Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. (Italian: [lamborˈɡiːni] ( listen)) is an Italian brand and manufacturer of luxury sports cars and, formerly, SUVs, which is owned by the Volkswagen Group through its subsidiary brand division Audi. Lamborghini’s production facility and headquarters are located in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy. In 2011, Lamborghini’s 831 employees produced 1,711 vehicles.
Ferruccio Lamborghini, an Italian manufacturing magnate, founded Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini S.p.A. in 1963 to compete with established marques, including Ferrari. The company gained wide acclaim in 1966 for the Miura sports coupé, which established rear mid-engine, rear wheel drive as the standard layout for high-performance cars of the era. Lamborghini grew rapidly during its first decade, but sales plunged in the wake of the 1973 worldwide financial downturn and the oil crisis. The firm’s ownership changed three times after 1973, including a bankruptcy in 1978. American Chrysler Corporation took control of Lamborghini in 1987 and sold it to Malaysian investment group Mycom Setdco and Indonesian group V’Power Corporation in 1994. In 1998, Mycom Setdco and V’Power sold Lamborghini to the Volkswagen Group where it was placed under the control of the group’s Audi division.
