Stanley Gives Kiss Off to Heart Problem

7/31/2007 3:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A recent heart snafu won't stop 55-year-old KISS singer/guitarist Paul Stanley. The wild Star Child was forced to bow out of a southern California concert on Friday, after suffering palpitations and shortness of breath.

The oldie but goodie says he's still ready to rock for this summer's Rock 'n' Roll fantasy camp, to be held in New York over Labor Day weekend. Rock and roll all night and party every day -- or at least Saturday and Sunday.

Said the botoxalicious Paul, "Like many, I have had a rapid heartbeat condition most of my life and I never have had any type of restrictions. When I've had an episode, although momentarily disrupting and taxing, it has no residual effect. This is nothing new and my doctors have known about it. In short, it doesn't change, hasn't changed and won't change my life."

I was at the San Jacinto show this past Friday night. I was sad to hear about Paul's heart problems. This is one of THE most talented performers in the world. His solo show at tne House Of Blues last year was incredible. Although KISS performed as a trio..and it was a was not the same. Gene did not do any Paul/Kiss songs. That means...No LOVE GUN.....No DETROIT ROCK CITY......and many other songs that they did not do. It was a treat to hear PARASITE and COLD GIN. Gene did his best....but KISS is lost without Paul. Too bad TMZ did not post a more flattering pic. Stay healthy Paul...catch you on tour next year.

Any of you people that is ragging on KISS, who do you like? Will they still be around 30 years from now? or will they fizzle out after about a year or so..I bet a year or so..I love all the groups out now, Crossfade,Saliva,Hinder,Threedaysgrace,Breakin Benjamin...and others...but where will they be in 30 years? off royalties..

Gene's show is a big hit and ppl are just jealous, it was picked up again for another season......

sell out? YEP.......Every night, broke or have millions?...I would take millions

Ur fools to diss on KISS, everybody you listen to, even if they don't want to admit it, idolized KISS growing up..

Little kids into kiss.......another Stupid remark......This didn't happen to the late 70's after KISS became a household name...

so many fools out there.......

Just because the "TMZ Darlings" (Lohan, Paris, Britney and now Sweetin) are all drugged out pieces of Trash with Cash, does not mean every "star" does coke or drugs. Read any book on KISS or interviews with other rock bands -- Paul Stanley does NOT do drugs and doesn't even drink!

Considering all the women he's slept with over the years, myabe too much sex makes you look the Paul looks -- if so, I hope I look like him when I'm older!!!!

Some of you people obviously don't know s**t about KISS. Don't make comments about people/things you know nothing about. Perhaps you should try commenting on what it is like being a total loser who has the audacity to criticize one of the most influencial and talented musicians of our time. You seem to be experts on that subject!
