Paul Stanley Pays Tribute To Kobe Bryant


At their "End of the Road" tour stop in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, KISS paid tribute to one of the Staples Center's most famous occupants.

Before launching into "Do You Love Me" from their Destroyer album, a Kobe Bryant No. 24 jersey-wearing Paul Stanley addressed the crowd.

Calling the NBA star "much more than a basketball player, somebody who's been a role model," the frontman announced the show was dedicated to Kobe, his daughter, and all of the victims who died in January's helicopter crash.

Stanley previously commented on Kobe's passing, tweeting the day he died, "WOW! Kobe. Such A Shock. My Condolences To His Wife And Children. Very, very sad. #KobeBryant".
