There's been plenty of announcements recently of classic rock artists starting their final tours which has given many others the chance to think about when they will finish up in their careers.
Paul Stanley isn't quite ready to give up just yet but he can see a day when KISS carry on without him.
"The thought of me not being involved certainly comes to mind," Stanley told Billboard.
"I'm not sure about the idea of Kiss coming to an end. We've built something that's so iconic, and I think it transcends any of the members so I can certainly see me not being there, seriously. There was a time where people said it had to be the four of us" -- Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss -- "and those people are already 50 percent wrong. So I'm betting [another absence] could be overcome too."
"I don't want to go leave home," he explained. "I have a family and I have children and, honestly, I think my primary responsibility is to be a dad, and I don't want to miss out on that. And certainly, as we got older, we know that life is finite and I pick and choose what I want to do at this point."
Stanley also said he thinks there is a world tour 'down the pike' but in 2018 KISS plan on keeping a low profile.
