KISS frontman Paul Stanley recently spoke about the band's "farewell" tour as well as his vocal struggles and guest appearances of former members. Stanley comments came during the latest episode of the Rolling Stone Music Now podcast.

Early this month, KISS announced that, after 45 years of recording and performing, they will embark on their final tour in 2019 called "End of the Road" world tour.

Stanley acknowledge that it's not easy to match his 1970s vocals at the age of 66.

"You do come to terms over time with your own mortality, and every singer that I know, probably the first thing we all say to each other is, you know, 'is this becoming tougher for you?'.. I've been doing a lot recently to make sure that my voice is in great form. [But] if you want to hear me sound like I did on Kiss Alive!, then put on Kiss Alive!"

When asked about the possibility of guest appearances by former members, Stanley said he doesn't rule out the possibility.

"I really can't say," Stanley says. "This will be a celebration of Kiss and not any individual lineup or any individual members. I wouldn't rule anything out but it's not the crux of what we're doing… and I'm not being coy either. I don't want to mislead anybody, really that's not something that's been given a lot of thought at this point, the majority of our time has gone into what is the stage going to be, what is the show going to be, and we're actually in the midst of toying with setlists now."
