frontman Paul Stanley has warned his guitarist son against following in his footsteps, because he wants the teen to "find his own path". Stanley admits he'll "never be as good a guitarist" as 16-year-old Evan, his son with ex-wife Pamela Bowen.

But, when asked if the teen will ever play a live show with KISS, Stanley replies, "I hope not." The "Rock and Roll All Nite" hitmaker, who is also dad to three-year-old son Colin and one-year-old daughter Sarah with wife Erin Sutton, insists his kids should follow their own dreams because living in the shadow of a famous father is a tough job.

He tells the New York Daily News, "(They should) live by the same philosophy that got me where I am, which is: find your own path. Follow your desires and succeed without any sense of owing anybody any debt of gratitude. Being Frank Sinatra Jr. is a hard cross to bear."
