Paul Stanley lost Folgers commercial

Fans can finally watch the long-sought-after coffee commercial featuring Paul Stanley, featured above, putting images together with a Folgers jingle that’s been passed around since at least 2008.
Stanley filmed the spot in 2000, but it was reportedly never aired — perhaps because focus groups expected something stronger than caffeine (like, say, cold gin?) to be in his cup. Or, maybe it was the strange incongruence of hearing the Kiss star singing, “Folgers stirs inside of me, and I know what I can be / The limit is the sky, hey, world watch me fly.”
For his part, Stanley has never had second thoughts about the commercial. “Why not? I wasn’t at all concerned with who thinks it is okay or not okay, cool or not cool, rock ‘n roll or not,” Stanley has said. “I had a blast doing it and isn’t that what this is all about?”
Kiss, meanwhile, has announced shows through the summer of 2015 in Japan, Columbia, Argentina, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, Spain and the UK.

Paul Stanley Is Now a Singer in a Soul Music Cover Band

Kiss singer to front Soul Station at Los Angeles concert next month

This fall, Kiss singer-guitarist Paul Stanley will begin a surprising new gig: soul singer. His new side group, Soul Station, which plays a mix of Sixties and Seventies soul classics, will perform its first-ever concert at Los Angeles' Roxy Theatre on September 11th. "I don't play guitar in the band and we don't do a single Kiss song," Stanley said in a statement. "That's not what this is about."

The Kiss vocalist's nine-person Soul Station backing band consists of musicians who have played with artists ranging from Christina Aguilera to Bobby Brown. Its drummer, Eric Singer, also plays with Stanley in Kiss. The group will play a mix of songs by the Stylistics, Dramatics, Temptations, Smokey and the Miracles and Blue Magic, among others.

"We're living in a time of being fed canned pre-programmed backing tracks and lip syncing in place of the electricity and passion of real live R&B," Stanley said. "When I was a boy, before I ever saw the Who or Led Zeppelin, I saw Solomon Burke and Otis Redding. I saw the Temptations and all that music is part of the foundation of the music I've made. Soul Station is my chance to celebrate it for a night that's real, live and faithfully recreates the sound with the respect it deserves.... These songs, arrangements and sound just blow you away."

In the meantime, Kiss remain as active as ever. After Stanley's Soul Station gig, the band will play a run of shows in Australia and New Zealand in October.
