      If you look at the end of the road tour interview. Pauls mouth droops on the side here and there. Pauls voice is gone via a minor stroke.

  • canadianshadowrider

    John Bon Jovi has done this for years..... how else does Britney Spears do a Vegas show and tells everyone "i am lip synching" .... it's become the standard unfortunately...

    Saw KISS the other night in Corpus Christi, Tx at the American Bank Center. Paul didn’t lip sync . He struggled with notes (vocals). Was a warrior throughout. Great Show

    It is more about the experience and seeing the show. They are Icons and are in their 60's. It is about seeing the show and the pyro. Backing tracks just make the sound more full and make the show better.

  • RZR Ron Production's

    Paul is 67 now, father time has caught up with him, he is the most talented in kiss and has a voice of an angel, but if uses tracks to make him sound like he did in the 70s, he should hire someone else to put the makeup on and sing for him, isnt that why ace and peter are not allowed on this tour, because ace and peter cant play there parts?

    Milli Vanilli didn't get busted for just lip syncing, they were caught not even recording the vocals in the first place. There is a HUGE difference.

    Eddie needs to GTFO himself! If ANYONE thinks using backing tracks, lip syncing, etc is new to rock, hard rock or heavy metal they are DELUSIONAL! The ONLY thing that he got right during this rant was that most people don’t care. I most certainly don’t care because I am fully aware of the techniques the artists I pay to see in concert use. John Francis Bongiovi Jr (Bon Jovi) needs to use backing tracks and lip sync! He sounds abysmal now. (Also, he over uses auto tune during the recording process.) His vocals were off the charts bad at the last Bon Jovi concert I went to in 2018.But, I didn’t care because the concert overall was good.
    So long as the artists put on a good or fantastic show, the fans will continue to buy tickets. Regardless of the use of backing tracks and/or lip syncing.

    Sad. Paul and Gene have expensive lifestyles and have thrown away tons of cash on failed businesses. I last saw them in 08 and Paul was struggling then. At least he did sing.

    Yeah, I think there was a bit of help in Sacramento the other night. I don’t really care. Looking at the visual spectacle it was, I realized how little of my ticket money paid for. Like probably a few handfuls of confetti that rained down for almost an entire song, or half a puff from the multitude of flame tubes. Just look at the gear they bought with them. It was truck full on truck full. Ticket money well spent

    PHANTOM LEGION 12 days ago

    I agree They are back dubbing , they have recordings of live shows they did 20 years ago , when doing a show on the end of the world Tour they have a back dub for each city so they can do their set lists and is less obvious as for instances , Vancouver , They run the back dub through the whole show that was recorded live in Vancouver that's why the same songs are being played in the same order , 20 years ago . Back dubbing has been used since the 90's , an audience wont pick it up as the back dub was recorded live , and the levels are different each time because if they are in Detroit they play the Detroit back dub . Mandrake Blackstone called them out on their Vancouver . Blackstone is a professional published musician so what he has to say is more creditable then some fan or player in a bar band , The whole end of the road show is pure fake , Your right how can someone sing or play with intensity one night then the very next night play the exact same amount of energy ? Paul's voice dose not sound like sang a full concert the next day . So what dose that say ? Blackstone has called KISS out many times . They are pushing close to 70 yet doing full shows . At their age there is no way Paul and Gene can Pull of a full 3 set show and sound the same the next day .

    people making such a big deal of it but I don't see anyone complaining about drummers using triggers and of course, the fucking autotune live and in the studio, I'm totally against these kinda things but the line was crossed way, waaaay a long time ago, it just doesn't surprise me anymore, I would go and see KISS anyway just because it will be my last chance so, basically, they got me by the balls xD

    I'm not condoning it but... I work with big bands in a professional capacity on shows (not mentioning anyone particularly). The use of backing tracks, click tracks and even session musicians offstage is very common - EVEN in the rock and metal world. It's been going on in my industry for years. It's entertainment, that's all. If you go to a gig and it sounded terrible because the band can't play like the record, you'd want your money back. Now you've discovered the backing tracks, you want your money back. No win situation. The walls of Marshall cabinets you see at gigs mostly aren't even plugged in, as the bands play through digital effect racks hidden behind them. I could name some really big players who do this, but I would lose my work. Welcome to the entertainment world.

    I love Kiss, and Paul Stanley. But, tracks? tickets should be $20 then. Look at Robert Plant. I saw him last summer, NO tracks, but signing where his voice is. The new recored he put out, plus a few LIVE LED ZEP III tunes.KISS - Drop the key. Or, rework them so we hear kiss circa 2019. Tapes? Don't bother. I love you cats, but do it live.....with what you are capable of. I'm sure it would be grea(choose sets according, change keys....whatever you need to do)t. For those that want Paul CIrca1988, too bad. Thats gone. thats what records are for. buy those records. ANd hear Paul 2019. Don't like it? dont buy the ticket. Buy the Crazy Nights live DVD.....Also, Paul, why isnt Reason To live in the set? the best Power ballad of the decade by you and Desmond child - drop it a minor 3rd - you'd still sing it great

    Sometimes backing tracks are ok sometimes in the studio there will be layered sounds, digital sound effects, and multiple instruments and extra background vocals which you can't bring a whole orchestra/choir on stage but the backing tracks should just be for those extras something that can't be done live. Lead vocals should always be done for real and guitar bass drums should all be done for real on stage. As far as having the same or original members. When it comes to metal, vocals and guitar players are important but you can trade out your bass and drummers they are not as important.

    One of the best rock vocalist out still touring is Glen Hughes and you can see it is because he keeps it up.He does not sit around for a few years gett8ng lazy n out of shape drinking or doing drugs.
    Its a sport like no other to be a rock n roll god with stamina.M8ck Jagger is living proof of this
    But it is best when it is 100% real 100% live 100% what you get is blown away when they do it.
    The Real Deal!
    And Paul Stanley should know that talk8ng & yelling is bad for your singing voice. So is being out of physical touring shape....

  • mike May

    It hurts me to say this because I love every iteration of KISS, but if you REALLY want to see a KISS show, go see Mr. Speed. When Gene said KISS could continue without the original members, I immediately felt that Mr. Speed should be the hired guns they bring in to continue the legacy. They are legitimately better than the current band, and put on a flawless replica performance.

    I go to Metal shows several times a year and there are backing tracks in all the shows. Backup vocal tracks are normal now. But the lead vocalist do sing from what I
    see but theres alot of prerecorded
    tracks anymore. The mosh pits are still real tho.

    Delete the backing tracks, bring in Ace and Peter, then i'll go see them play. Almost considered seeing this version of the lineup but with all the videos on youtube proving Eddie is right, i'm good. I'd rather just stay home and watch Detroit Rock City (The movie with Edward Furlong) as atleast the actual band is in it!

    And why is any major journalist going to you for a story whenever you haven't even seen the show.....that is what is wrong you offer your opinion whenever you haven't even went you're going by a friend of a friend of a friend's tale..... You're so important Eddie and yet you still can't figure out why Kiss wants nothing to do with you.. your inflated ego that's lived off the backs of all these groups and being a fanboy has given you some kind of self-importance that really shouldn't exist. How about you get up there for 45 years and do what Paul's done ? You couldn't..... And then you call yourself a fan like half the rest of these punks on here…why not respect the 45 years that they've given us. Paul has had both of his hips replaced shoulder surgeries and on and on.they've always been positive role models only to be getting tore down by the likes of you. It's sad that kids who watched her videos on TheXvid have to hear the crap that you spew and just can't like the band for what they like them for like we used to do. But yet your inflated ego tells you it's all okay because it's just your opinion.well how about this how about you keep your f****** opinion to yourself because never kiss is gone who else is going to listen to.you talk about them almost on every show your callers call about them on every show you rode their coattails. You are the ultimate fanboy gone wrong

All your good about is starting trouble starting rumors and then it spreads that's why Kiss no longer associate themselves with you. You would think you would f****** wise up but you don't.oh but let me play the Eddie trunk card and say Eddie I really do like your show and I really do like a lot of the interviews you do LOL.

    Hypocrisy or maybe another word BS why people focus on Milli Vanilli when their producer did it for Boney M. Nobody cares about that. Why Elton John was praised back in the day for opening doors in Russia (Soviet Union) but Queen was condemned for performing in South Africa. Could they not have been praised for opening doors? They did not play to segregated audiences. How about critics criticizing the Knack for ripping off the Beatles album cover but praising the Clash for copying an Elvis cover? The WWF had it right when it came to heroes and villains we are all the same its the Mob rules.

    Why is the voice track repeating itself? He starts talking about Bon Jovi, Motley Crue etc. all over again, it's exactly the same line. Is this video prolonged by copy/pasting stuff? Happened on Xbox One's TheXvid on two different videos for now.

    There are people 15-20 years younger doing the same, like the singer of Steel Panther. Saw it on gig footage, it was sad. Paul on the other hand shouldnt sing at all. He cant talk between songs without his voice cracking into 5 different notes he doesnt mean to actually produce. It's just sad, nothing but sad.

  • Erasmus

    Honestly the real reason they’re doing lipsync is because Paul Stanley sang with not just 100% but 120% of himself every night for 30+ years. Go figure his voice would give out eventually. Cut him some slack. But yes perhaps then they shouldn’t perform at all. Not a fan of watching playback either

    i think that the "showboat" PAUL STANLEY needs to simply sit down shut up and just watch, to be quite honest.. not just the singing but his guitar playing as well. the more recent song "all for the love of rock and roll" is a great tune! eric singer has a great voice. but my god! when paul opens his mouth and tries to sing and play along with tommy, the whole thing is ruined. it sounds terrible and his guitar is out of synch with tommys. PAUL... DUDE! they got this, they dont need your help!
