KISS' Paul Stanley - "I'm Deaf In One Ear"

In an exclusive with CNN,
KISS singer Paul Stanley explains how he became the frontman for one of
the most successful rock bands in America, despite being born deaf in
his right ear. This article initially ran in 2011; CNN is republishing
as KISS gears up for the second leg of its world tour, which kicks off
June 1.

Says Stanley; "I was born with a Level 3 Microtia, which is a
congenital deformity of the cartilage of the outer ear, and occurs in
approximately 1 out of every 8,000 to 10,000 births.

There is no ear canal and no direct path to the inner workings of
the ear. Except for bone conduction, I'm virtually deaf on my right
side, as there is no access for sound to enter.

I've had an implanted hearing aid for years now. This is a device
that is usually given to children at an early age or to adults who have
lost their hearing due to a medical condition. This has been an ongoing
adjustment for me as my brain has never processed sound coming in from
my right side."

KISS' Paul Stanley - "I Don't Need The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame"

In a new interview with The Huffington Post,
Paul Stanley says he doesn't "need the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame,"
part of the long list of bands that the institution has ignored.

When asked if there's hope of a reprieve, Stanley responds; "Well,
it depends on who lives longer, us or Jann Wenner," Stanley said,
referring to the Rolling Stone editor-in-chief who co-founded the Rock
And Roll Hall Of Fame back in the mid-1980s.

Fans have a tendency to blame Wenner for the KISS snub, but the real
obstacle may be journalist Dave Marsh, who plays a key role in the
selection process and once told MTV, "KISS is not a great band, KISS was
never a great band, KISS never will be a great band, and I have done my
share to keep them off the ballot."

Stanley, who has been making the media rounds to publicize the
opening of a new branch of his Rock & Brews restaurant chain,
questioned the legitimacy of the hall itself.

"Look, the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is marketing," he said.
"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."

Stanley continues: "It's absurd for anybody to look around and hear
the acts and artists who cite us as an inspiration, and then tell me
that we're not in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame."

"I'm not here to make converts, and I think that the people who choose not to see things, I'm not missing their adoration."
