Kiss’ Paul Stanley misses concert due to heart problems

Kiss singer Paul Stanley had to skip a concert at Soboba Casino, California, due to heart problems before the show. Bass player Gene Simmons took the stage with the other two members of the band (Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer) to perform the gig without Stanley – who was taken to a local hospital.

Stanley posted a message on his website stating: “During sound check, my heart spontaneously jumped to 190 plus beats per minute where it stayed for over an hour necessitating paramedics to start an IV and give me a shot to momentarily stop my heart and get it into a normal pattern.”

He further stated: “Not knowing if this episode was life threatening made it even more exhausting.”
