Billboard.com caught up with KISS stars Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons and asked if they were comfortable being an opening act on tour with Aerosmith. “Regardless of when we go on, our job remains the same: to not only live up to people’s expectations, but to surpass them,” Stanley said. “We can only be who we are, and the fact that somebody has to go on before somebody else is a moot point to us.” Simmons added, “This is not Holyfield-Tyson. Nobody’s here to fight and bite off anybody’s ear. It’s a mutual admiration society. The bands are friends; we’ve known each other 30 years. Certainly, Aerosmith is the best of its kind. No one does what they do better. And we tend to think that there’s nobody that does what we do better.”
