Kiss star Paul Stanley was flattered British pop star Robbie Williams name-checked his band in a song - but insists he has no plans to return the favour any time soon.
Williams - who sang, "Every morning when I wake up, I look like Kiss, but without the make-up" in his 1999 hit Strong - joins a long list of artists who have mentioned the face-painting rockers in their lyrics, including Lenny Kravitz, Weezer, Jimmy Buffet and Kid Rock.
And singer/guitarist Stanley insists he was impressed with the British pop star's name-drop, despite Williams' fear the metal rockers would hate the lyric.
He says, "I liked it. When I ran into him in Los Angeles, I think he thought I was gonna deck (punch) him. But I liked it.
"But, as big as Robbie Williams is, he's not in one of our songs."
