Paul and Gene creepy interview 2002 The Early Years

Post by Brewer »



Paul getting increasingly pissed off when they keep asking Gene about politics.

Such a bizarre time to be a fan. There was no band at that time.

Host mentions farewell tour and Gene bursts out laughing and Paul starts back-pedalling.

Not creepy, but a strange arena to promote a book.

If the purpose of the interview was to promote the book, the questions were disastrous. They also ignored Paul. Paul handled it pretty well IMO.

Turbulent times for the band...Ace was out for good, Peter was in and out, Paul was getting divorced...This was a rebirth time for what KISS is today.

Creepy, if you mean the reporters, yes. An amazingly bad interview.

Interesting choice of photo in the very beginning, considering. Coincidence?

Will they go back on Hannity to promote Magic when it comes out?

Also, they think bands are idiotic who take drugs are they calling The Beatles idiotic? Do they hate Sgt Pepper? Saying nobody wants to look like Keith Richards? Pretty much every rock star ever wants to look like him!! :lol:

This is right around the time my KISS obsession began. That Vh1 documentary (Still the best one of the bunch in my opinion) started it. But yes, hindsight being what it is, odd time.

Boy that Hannity guy sure needed to be put in his place. He acted like Gene had raped 4600 women. They’re called groupies, dumb ass! :roll:

Hate to admit it, but I actually liked Gene's offstage look during that era.

Black t-shirt under a black leather jacket, a decent "hairstyle".....probably a little conservative for him, but still "rock star-ish".

But good times for Paul in a way because he was able to have sex again after a long hiatus. Remember, he never cheated on Pamela despite being a self-proclaimed sex addict.

^^Not too sure about that with Paul^^

Heard a few stories about Paul with some of the female groupies during the Farewell Tour.

Maybe he knew his marriage was on the rocks and decided to have some fun.

The 'creepiest' interview IMO was not this one, but around the same time I think, at some event I forget which, and G&P were being interviewed by a super-cute female reporter, and Paul was ALL over her like one wouldn't believe. Now, I know many people exaggerate things, but IMO one cannot watch this without cringing. Maybe someone has the link, even I felt violated by just watching it.

red...Was that the one with the short haired brunette? That may have been the NY Tower Records instore.

If that's the one, I agree with you. Cringe city.
Before the interview ended, she said something real quick and sarcastic to him and he backed off...put him in his place...lol.

Yes that's it! The mayhem goes from like 15:00 to 23:22. (I don't know how to link with it starting at a certain time.) Again granted she's really cute IMO but Paul's hands are on her like the WHOLE time, and some of the things he does are just, augh. Like Soylent said, disgusting. I'll add embarrassing. To her credit she goes through it like a champ.
