My workout is always with a trainer because, quite honestly, I don't think most people are motivated enough to do what they need to on their own. You either need a spotter or you need a trainer. You need somebody there to push you to get that extra five.
When you're in a position to have gotten so much, the gift at this point is giving back.
Whenever anybody comes to me with a way that I can give something back, it would be ungrateful at this point in my life to not say yes.
I think KISS has always been about celebrating self-empowerment. Celebrating the idea that anything is possible with determination and hard work.
Credibility is someone else's idea of what I should be doing.
The financial reward is great and I love the life I have, but all money makes possible is for you to stop worrying about money. Then you have freedom to live your life.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is marketing. You've got a bunch of faceless people in a back room who trademark a name that sounds very official. Well, if you had thought of it first, you would have been the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
In terms of merchandise, you can't force anyone to buy something.
When you start fooling around with drugs, you're hurting your creativity, you're hurting your health. Drugs are death, in one form or another. If they don't kill you, they kill your soul. And if your soul's dead, you've got nothing to offer, anyway.
There's a difference between standing up and telling people what you're planning to do and standing up and going and accomplishing something.
Core strengthening is key to everything. It's not just about the way I look, but about stabilizing my body so I can perform better on stage.
The fact that you can't base a coffeehouse on any other rock band is the other rock bands' problem, not mine.
I tend to fly a bit under the radar.
Youth is incredible because you really do feel invincible.
You can't enter the Olympics unless you do your routine to get in shape for it. The idea of going out on stage on a tour without having prepped for it would be suicide, literally.
Gene sometimes... well, he has his dream list.
A Kiss concert experience is like sex or anything else that's done with more that one person. It's the give and take that makes it so great. When the audience takes it to the next level, we can kick it up another notch.
The great thing about rock-n-roll is you realize the top of the mountain is big enough for more than one band.
Nothing could ever stop Kiss. I've seen the band in down times where critics were like vultures circling overhead saying things like, 'Well, you know it's the end of your career.'
Doing my art came out of something very solitary and something that I had no intention of showing anybody, and yet once people saw pieces in my house, it became really clear that there was a great demand for my art.
The only thing I can say is consistent in all my paintings is vivid color.
I started working out, doing a formal workout right around 1980. That's when I really decided I needed to get in shape and it may have been because you just start to see a decrease - a change in your body.
Democracy in the studio is overrated. What you wind up getting is compromise on everybody's part, which means that nobody has their way, and that means nobody wins, including the fans.
