PAUL STANLEY Explains How He Came Up With Band's Name....KISS

In a recent interview with Australia's The Project,KISS frontman Paul Stanley was asked how he came up with the band's name nearly five decades ago. He responded (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): "I thought that it was something that would sound familiar no matter where you were in the world. It was the kind of name where a word like that, you would go, 'Oh, I've heard of KISS.' And it also had so many different meanings — a passionate kiss, a kiss of death, whatever. So it was a word that I think was open to interpretation. And I guess it worked, right? We're here, what? 48 years later — something like that. But who's counting?"

"End Of The Road" was originally scheduled to conclude on July 17, 2021 in New York City but is now expected to last well into 2022.
