The Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger recently released a music video for his new song “Eazy Sleazy” with Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl, featuring edgy lyrics about the pandemic that have stirred controversy. Mick Jagger ‘Can’t Sing’ Surprising Songs.
KISS frontman Paul Stanley told Inside with Paulo Baron, “I just heard Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl’s song, and it’s great, it kicks, and it feels live. That’s really what I go for.
“I want the truth that comes with flesh and blood, I want the truth that people can share with each other.
“All of a sudden I’m at a loss for names, but you know, there’s loads of good music out there, and anybody that says, ‘Oh, there’s no good music out there,’ there is.
“There’s also music that I don’t like, but what’s new? There’s always been music that we don’t like. Focus on the music that’s good.”
He also discussed influencing younger artists, “Well, I’m not young. [Laughs] I’m very thankful that there are people who feel that we have influenced them.
“You know, you can get very self-absorbed and be very much in love with yourself if what you’re thinking about is how you’ve influenced people.
“I think how people have influenced me over the years, how people have made me who I am, how I’ve learned things.
“I think it’s great, and it’s an honor to have bands and people say that they got into it professionally, music or whatever, because of us.
“It works both ways, I am who I am because of you, so that’s important to remember, you know? Interestingly, a friend of mine just had dinner with Kirk Hammett last week, and Kirk was blasting the Soul Station album.
“It’s great, it’s a great feeling to know that you’ve influenced other people, and also to know that people who inspired you love what you’re doing.
“Rod Stewart loves the Soul Station album; Paul Rodgers loves the Soul Station album, Otis Williams from the Temptations loves it…
“That’s important to me, that people who I respect and that I’ve been inspired by love what I’m doing, so I’m very thankful for everything I have, and I wouldn’t have it without you, so it works both ways.” Ultimate-Guitar transcribed his remarks.
