LOS ANGELES, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- KISS guitarist Paul Stanley says his degenerative hip condition is worsening and he will probably end up going under the knife a third time.

"I think I'm not done (with surgery)," Stanley told "I think that, unfortunately, things just haven't gone as smoothly as expected, and the second, you know, revision of that first surgery just didn't do what was necessary. And I think after the new year I'm going to have to start looking to probably have something redone."

The 55-year-old KISS StarChild said his hip problems stem from the thousands of shows he has performed with the hard rock band since the early 1970s.

Hip trouble hasn't slowed him down all that much, however. Stanley said his solo album is due out in 2006 and KISS has a new concert DVD out, "Kiss Rock The Nation Live!," which was filmed last year in Washington.
