Paul Stanley Wants To Record New Music And Make Live Soul Station CD

KISS frontman Paul Stanley was a guest on a recent episode of the nationally syndicated program "Uncle Joe's Garage". You can now watch video footage of his appearance below.

Speaking about is latest solo project, an R&B band called SOUL STATION, Stanley said: "SOUL STATION is a 13-piece band of people who are really like-minded — top-shelf people who have played with Smokey [Robinson], Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera, John Mayer… the list goes on and on. And, really, what we do is recreate note for note all the great music that is part of, certainly, my foundation. Sometimes it gets overlooked at this point, because people are being spoonfed crap."

He continued: "Look, I don't wanna talk about, 'Oh, the music was so great back then,' 'cause this isn't music that necessarily people would expect me to have an affinity for. But the music that we're hearing nowadays that kind of gets passed off as soul or R&B is just a beat on a computer and somebody doing a nursery run that's been tuned, you know, pre-tuned. It's just a different world. And when you hear the FOUR TOPS, or your hear THE SPINNERS, STYLISTICS, DELPHONICS, TEMPTATIONS, SMOKEY [ROBINSON] & THE MIRACLES. That music is amazing and timeless."

According to Stanley, race shouldn't be a factor in the way people listen to music. He said: "Great music is made by all nationalities. And certainly SOUL STATION, the cool thing is it's multi-national, and well it should be. I mean, you should be able to close your eyes and not know who's making the music. It's either good or it's not good."
