There’s been a loss in the Kiss family, as singer Paul Stanley is mourning the death of his mother, Eva Eisen. Eisen passed away Saturday (Sept. 29) at the age of 88. The official cause of death was not given.

The vocalist has not only credited his mother with his love of music, but stated that she has always been there to support him through his musical endeavors, often turning up at Kiss shows.

Kiss had recently come off the road, finishing “The Tour” with Motley Crue that was one of the highlights of the summer concert season. The band’s new album, ‘Monster,’ arrives Oct. 9.

Stanley made a public statement about his loss at the Kiss website. It read:

My mother found so much pleasure and fulfillment in all the various types of music that she loved so. It was through her that I, too, found that same passion. She lived long enough to see, enjoy and love an extended family that included her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She found numerous ways to contribute to her community and was appreciated and loved by those who knew her. My mom was the matriarch of our family and words cannot express our loss.

His bandmates also chimed in with their thoughts and condolences in a brief posting. It read:

From the earliest days of Kiss until recently, Eva was always seen by fans at New York-area shows. We send our deepest sympathies to Paul and his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Loudwire wishes to send our condolences to Paul Stanley and his family on their loss.
