Kiss' Paul Stanley: 'Dave Grohl Is the Ken Burns of Rock Documentaries'

With Foo FightersSonic Highways still making its way through an eight-week HBO journey, the praise for Dave Grohl from his co-stars is far from over. This week, KISS' Paul Stanleytook his turn gushing.

"It's such a brilliant idea — the idea of highlighting cities and then writing a song influenced by your experience in that city," Stanley said. "It's heady stuff. For whatever anybody may think of Dave as a rock 'n' roll artist or a child of punk rock, this guy is very deep. He's the real deal."

Whatever Grohl touches turns to gold. Remember that.

"The show is just terrific," Stanley said. "Dave is so unique in the fact that here's a guy who was in a world-renowned band as the drummer and found his way to setting his own course and, decades later, being a juggernaut in the music business. All of the sudden, I'm thinking he's like the Ken Burns of rock documentaries. The guy is pretty impressive."

The pair have a good relationship, as their children attend the same school.

"I've seen Dave almost every day for the past three years," Stanley said. "Every year we actually do concerts, separately, but the same nights as a fundraiser for the school. He asked me if I would be involved with the [HBO] show, and I said absolutely."

Stanley also discussed various aspects of the '70s New York music scene, which apparently didn't have enough, uh, balls.

"There were all these artsy bands that perhaps had more in common with Rimbaud andKerouac than they did with Elvis Presley, and if you want to read poetry, that's great, but it's not rock 'n' roll, and it just doesn't have balls," Stanley said. "The roots of rock 'n' roll are below the belt, and if too much of it is above the belt, it ain't rock."
