Read below for the history of these great musicians:
PAUL STANLEY Paul Stanley is the charismatic front man, lead vocalist, and rhythm guitarist for hard rock super group KISS. He is best known for his wailing vocals and high-energy, on-stage antics. He had a keen interest in music from a young age and has been playing the guitar and writing his own songs since he was a teenager. After a chance meeting with another aspiring young musician, Gene Simmons, the two of them formed their idea of how their "ultimate group" should look and sound. Thus, KISS was born and went on to be one of the hottest groups of all time. Kiss has been awarded 24 gold albums to date, the most of any American rock band. The band has sold more than 40 million albums in the United States and their worldwide sales exceeds 100 million albums. Paul is the writer or co-writer of many of the band's highest-charting hits. Stanley himself established the "Starchild" character forhis Kiss persona.
DON FELDER Don Felder is renowned as a former lead guitarist of The Eagles, one of the most popular and influential rock groups of our time. The band's record-setting compilation Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) sold over 29 million copies in the U.S. alone and was awarded by the RIAA the top-selling album of the 20th Century. Currently Don and the Eagles have sold more than 83.5 million albums. A member of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1998, Felder served as a member of The Eagles for 27 years, putting his mark on numerous Eagles milestones. Felder originated the music and co-wrote The Eagles' biggest hit – the iconic, Grammy-studded smash "Hotel California" – along with fan favorites like "Victim of Love" and "Those Shoes". He became immediately celebrated for his lyrical, signature guitar work on legendary songs like "Hotel California," "One of These Nights," "New Kid In Town," and numerous more. "Hotel California" was recently voted the Number 1 best 12 string guitar song in the world by Guitar World magazine.
After leaving the group in 2001, Felder also became a New York Times bestselling author when his riveting confessional memoir "Heaven and Hell: My Life in The Eagles" proved a major commercial triumph upon publication in 2008 and went on to become a New York Times best seller.
Four time Grammy award winner, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, New York Times best selling author, amazing guitarist and captivating performer is the best way to describe Don Felder today.
Felder has not only worked with The Eagles but also in both sessions and live performances for numerous music legends spanning the musical spectrum: The Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, Bob Seger, Michael Jackson, Alice Cooper, Kenny Loggins, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Boz Scaggs, Warren Zevon, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, Vince Gill, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Paul Simon, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand – and even old friend, Steven Stills.
Don is currently touring worldwide in support of his new CD "The Road To Forever" which features some of the best musicians and close Felder friends in the business including Crosby, Stills & Nash, Tommy Shaw (from STYX), Randy Jackson (American Idol). Steve Lukather and David Paich (Toto).
