Paul Stanley announced the death of his 101-year-old father, William Eisen, over social media platforms. Although the Kiss co-founder admitted in his 2014 autobiography Face The Music: A Life Exposed, his relationship with both his parents was strained throughout his childhood and adolescent years, as an adult the pair bonded and became close with the birth of Paul's own children.
Paul Stanley posted about his father's death:
My dad William Eisen has left this earth after 101 years & 7 months. His thirst for knowledge never wained (sic). He could speak on virtually any subject. His pride in my accomplishments was heartwarming as was seeing his love of my family. He said he'd always be with me and he will.
