Paul Stanley,above in makeup, is a hard rock guitarist and singer/songwriter best known for being the rhythm guitarist and primary lead vocalist of the rock band KISS. He is the writer or co-writer of many of the band’s highest-charting hits. Through a mutual friend of Gene Simmons’, Stanley joined Simmons’ band Wicked Lester in the early 1970s.

Wicked Lester soon fell apart and Stanley and Simmons placed ads for a drummer and a guitarist in various New York papers.This resulted in Peter Criss and Ace Frehley joining the group, and they named themselves KISS.The group released their self-titled debut album in February 1974.
