Excerpt from Paul Stanley - “Face the Music: A Life Exposed” Released April 2014
like the person I saw when I looked in
the mirror. But I was trying—trying to become
the person I wanted to be as opposed
to remaining complacent. The problem was,
no matter what I tried, nothing seemed to
get me where I wanted to go. As KISS endured
its ups and downs, I realized at various
turns that many of the assumptions I
held about what would satisfy me—or perhaps
just make me comfortable with myself—
had been wrong. I thought the fix was
being famous. I thought the fix was being
rich. I thought the fix was being desirable. By
1976, with the success of the KISS Alive! album,
we became famous. But I found that
rubbing my fame in people’s faces didn’t
make me feel any better. By the end of the
1970s, we had made millions of dollars. But I
found that the money—and the clothes, and
the cars, and the collectible guitars I bought
with it—didn’t make me happy either. And as
far as being desirable, from the moment of
the release of our first album, sex was available
any time and all the time. But I found I
could be with somebody and still feel alone. I
once heard someone say that you’re never
more alone than when you’re sleeping with
the wrong person. That’s true. And while
there are worse ways to suffer than bedding
Penthouse Pets and Playboy Playmates, the
happiness of those experiences proved transient.
Exhilarating, yes, but momentary. I
learned that none of it—while enjoyable—
could take the place of whatever I felt
was missing inside of me.

Q:Do you think we will ever get to see any photos of Luka from the trial or any updated photos at all?
There will no photos ‘from the trial’ , or television. I do believe we will see updated photos of him during the trial. Usually there is the opportunity somewhere to snap photos of him, being transferred between court dates, etc. You’ll have to stay tuned for September.

Q:can you explain the sympathy for luka?
I’d bundle empathy in that question too. I can’t explain it… you either have it, or you don’t. We all draw our own conclusions. Perhaps you should ask Jun Lin’s own mother who is on record as stating having sympathy for Luka.
Here’s a refresher, for all those with selective memories….
Alex Hribal had no history of mental illness or troublemaking, didn’t abuse drugs and was no outcast at school, where the lawyer described him as a B or B-plus student.
