Most singers in today’s music world have a week or two off to rest their vocals. Paul Stanley of KISS finally had his vocal chords looked after and he will appear on NIghtline on ABC this Tuesday to talk about KISS, their new album and his surgery on his vocal chords.

Even superstar music legends like Paul Stanley of KISS believe it’s never too late to look after your voice. With thousands of performances and over four decades of touring, Stanley said those years of hitting screeching notes and high-octane stage raps can take their toll.

“As soon as you hit the stage, you are a complete idiot,” he said. “People are cheering for you, so you do the impossible and when you don’t have enough time to recuperate afterwards, it just catches up with you. Literally speaking my voice was cracking. It was cracking quite a bit on stage.”

Those years of strain is why the KISS vocalist had surgery on his vocal cords this year by the noted Dr. Steven Zietels, an otolaryngologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center, who also operated on Adele.

“[Zietels] said my cords actually looked great for somebody who actually worked as much as I did and he did some minor things to mine,” Stanley said. “It sounds way, way, way, way better.”

It’s good news for a nearly 60-year-old recording artist who is working on producing a new KISS album.

“I lead a pretty good healthy life and I think at some point that really plays into it. That whole cartoon lifestyle that some people think is key to being a rock star is your demise,” Stanley said. “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.”
