The Spinner website has published a new interview with Paul Stanley where the Kiss merchandising is discussed. Paul is quoted saying the following:
"People sometimes say, why do you have things like Kiss sleeping bags? Because a fan asked for it. We're not great merchandisers -- we're great listeners. We give the fans what they want. If that's a crime, I'm ready for my trial."
