Stage banter is one of the most underrated qualities of a musical frontman, and its greatest practitioners all have different styles: Bruce Springsteen delivers monologues about lost friends and the saving grace of rock 'n' roll, Robert Pollard extols the virtues of alcohol in between hilarious rambles, Lou Reed at his peak was the meanest shit-talker in the world, and Lauryn Hill's diatribes are world famous. And then there's Paul Stanley, frontman of the merchandizing collective known as KISS, who has turned the act of shrieking a city's name, mewling unsubtle sexual innuendo, and screaming the word "TEQUILLLLLLLA" into an art form.

The above 45 minute clip, which has been floating around the internet for a bit, is a redux of the classic Stanley fan-made bootleg, Let Me Get This Off My Chest. It reveals that Stanley is a poet of the mundane, turning phrases such as "CAN WE GET ANY HOTTTTER?" into liquid energy. As The AV Club put it, Stanley's "positive-power...insanity made him sound like a hyperactive motivational speaker." This is a man who can turn the phrase, "My goodness, people!" into a rallying cry!

KISS aficionados likely already know about Stanley's brilliant inability to control his pitch, but for the rest of us, this is a revelation. If you want to experience Stanley in person, KISS is coming to town for several area shows this summer (including Jones Beach and Atlantic City). The only thing that could possibly make it any better is if Axl Rose showed up and demanded Stanley give him some reggae:
