A Kiss fan has put together a lengthy audio clip featuring Paul Stanley‘s on-stage banter from over the years. The 45 minute clip is “great for ruining parties and torturing anyone who’s trying to sleep,” according to Christopher Armes Soundcloud site.
“Alright Toronto! You feel good?,” Stanley screams at the beginning of the file. He continues, “Alright then listen you know we may be under clear blue skies but you know it’s getting a little cool out tonight, but that ain’t going to stop us. Because if we try hard enough we gonna get this place ‘Hotter Than Hell’!”
The 45-minutes of stage banter features the singer and guitarist asking fans if they are “high,” if they like to drink “Cold Gin.” He also asks both the ladies and gentlemen in the crowd if they enjoy being licked, before the band launched into “Lick it Up,” naturally.
Clips were pulled from various Kiss concerts over the years from Toronto, Detroit, Albuquerque, Pittsburgh, Atlantic City and their hometown of New York City, which got a special shout out. “There wouldn’t be Kiss without New York City and the great state of New York,” Stanley said to the audience in the Big Apple.
Stanley also does a lot of a cappella singing and attempts to have the audience sing his lines back. Fans can listen to all 45 minutes of Paul Stanley stage banter below, if you dare.
