Some new details have emerged about Kiss singer/guitarist Paul Stanley's upcoming appearance on ABC's Nightline. The rocker will be featured in a segment focusing on how many singing stars have undergone surgery to repair their vocal cords.
Stanley had an operation earlier this year that was performed by Dr. Steven Zeitels, who also has treated The Who's Roger Daltrey, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and young pop diva Adele.
"That whole cartoon lifestyle that some people think is key to being a rock star is your demise," Stanley says on the program with regard to why many singers damage their voices. "Treat your voice like an instrument. We take pretty good care of our guitars our violins and our pianos but we kind of take our voice for granted. You know, warm it up, warm it down and give it a chance to rest."
No airdate for the Nightline segment has been announced.
