Happy Birthday Paul Stanley: His Top 6 Non-Kiss Songs

Today the man who was born Stanley Harvey Eisen and later became the Starchild Paul Stanley turns 60 years old. You are always defined by your favorites KISS member. If it's Stanley, like with us, then you're an outgoing, charismatic person who lives for fun. If it's Peter Criss, then you're a quiet lover with a big heart. If it's Vinnie Vincent then you don't exist.

Stanley's greatest contribution to the world of music has been in his full-time dedication to the empire that is KISS, and the demands that managing that huge endeavor have left him little time to pursue any other avenues of musical expression. However, we did find six non-KISS related gems to showcase as a present.
