Stanley, who turned 70 this past January, shared his list of favorite singers in a social media post yesterday (March 14), which you can check out below. (Strange how his Top 11 had two singers in the number 10 spot. did they tie? Why not just go Top 12? Anyways…)

KISS launched their farewell tour in January 2019 but put it on hold in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“End Of The Road” was originally scheduled to conclude on July 17, 2021 in New York City but has since been extended to at least the end of 2022.
