Today In KISStory - 2006

KISSopolis.com
Live to Win is the second solo album from Kiss vocalist, guitarist and co-founder Paul Stanley, released on October 24, 2006.

The album's title track was featured on the South Park episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft", approximately three weeks (twenty days) prior to the album's release.

Stanley last released a solo album in 1978, Paul Stanley, which was officially released as a Kiss album. Comparing the two albums, Stanley said "It's not 1978 anymore... It's certainly the same mentality, and certainly I'm a better singer today. My perspective and where I'm at in my life at this point, and what I've experienced and seen, brings something else to the table that wasn't there then. But I still look back on that album as a really great snapshot of who I was and what I was doing then."

Stanley supported the album's release with a club tour in the fall of 2006.
