I started to listen to Kiss in 1978 . I collect all of their records till 1986. I ended up selling them in 86' for a buck a piece. What a dumb shit I was. They have always put their heart in their shows and could touch all ages .

I must agree with you Freeze, they are mainly just a good rock-n-roll band.
That said, being a fan since the ripe age of ten (1975 Destroyer) and having 
seen them a half dozen times, you know what your going to get when you see
them live. One helluva SHOW! As musicians they leave something to be desired 
but as showmen they are near the top.  Just my opinion

I'm a relatively new KISS fan and yes the starter of this thread. I discovered them close to maybe 4 years ago thanks to a now ex work colleague and I like the majority of their albums. I love Psycho Circus, both the track and the album. I also like Rock and Roll Over, Love Gun and Hot in The Shade. I wasn't around to see KISS in the 70's and to be honest still haven't seen them even the last tour as I live in Africa, can't afford to travel and can't see them coming down here.
[Deep Freeze] Sunday, December 14, 2008 8:43:08 AM 
I was a big KISS fan back in the 70's. I think most kids then were. The problem for me is, it was never about great musicianship with them. It was about the "show". I do not believe ANY of them are GREAT musicians, and that includes Paul. They can play. Paul has a decent voice. But the theatrical show is really what made KISS and that is a big reason they went "back to the make up". Of course, there is always the aspect of money. No doubt about it but I cannot think of even one album by KISS that has what I would consider GREAT musicianship. I believe more than one member of the group has admitted as much. They have said that they are just a rock and roll band. No technical genius involved. "Just straightforward rock and roll". Even that might be a bit ambitious as far as I am concerned. 
[astarup] Sunday, December 14, 2008 8:28:27 AM 
I actually liked Carnival of Souls very much, it showed KISS evolving ... I think it was a big mistake to go backwareds and put the make up back on. Im sure it was only for money. They should have kept Bruce and Eric and continued to make good music instead. Now they are just sad old men ... Psycho Circus was an okay KISS album, but to see them again in make up was idiotic, that belonged in the 70's and 80's ... And to get Ace and Peter back, what a fuck up ...
Ive been a KISS fan since 1976 so its not that I don't like KIss, but you have to agree that Paul is the only true musician today. Gene just wanna be rich and famous (nothing new there)
[Steve Clark is God] Saturday, December 13, 2008 5:48:23 PM 
my fav. albums are CREATURES OF THE NIGHT & LICK IT UP.......they were both very good.
Crazy nights also has a couple of good songs in it.  ASYLUM was horrible(apart from the song ' Tears are falling' which is the best KISS song ever)
[metalmaz] Saturday, December 13, 2008 5:37:13 PM 
Easily the best post classic era Kiss. And the most heavy. Love that album

I thought Revenge was a pretty good Kiss album. Came out in the early 90's. The first song Unholy was awesome.
[metalmaz] Saturday, December 13, 2008 2:19:26 PM 
A sad fact of many Kiss's 80's albums. Gene was in Hollywood trying to become a movie star.

Apart from Creatures Of The Night, Lick It Up and Revenge, I'm not exactly bowled over from the post "classic era" Kiss. There are a few good songs on Psycho Circus, but for me the real Kiss is the likes of Destroyer, Hotter Than Hell, Love Gun etc.

And I hate the way that Gene constantly slags Ace. I mean this is from someone who has released one of the worst ever albums - Asshole

I was quite excited to see Paul Stanley's recent solo tour for his "Live to Win" album of 2006 has finally come out on DVD. Can't wait till the day I can actually afford to buy it.
[SkyRideR] Wednesday, December 10, 2008 7:27:46 PM 
what was the deal with the "live in vegas" which was supposed to be on the net, yet not?
good thing it's on dvd now...
[Return_of_Darth_Painkiller_0870] Saturday, December 06, 2008 1:14:35 PM 
A new Kiss album is in the works!!!!!!  Should be interesting.
[Return_of_Darth_Painkiller_0870] Thursday, December 04, 2008 1:53:29 PM 
Maybe he realizes that he's far too busy with his other endeavours to put forth the effort required.

[mesniu II] Wednesday, October 22, 2008 5:29:10 PM 
i don't actually remember where i saw it but there was an interview with gene & paul but they were in diagreement with each other (seemingly mad at each other during the interview). you could tell by the body language.
[astarup] Sunday, October 19, 2008 4:04:57 AM 
Could we have a link to this youtube thing? Thanks :o)

KISS was the 1st rock band I got into thanks to my older brother--I was duped by my parents into beleiving that there was only gospel & country music but my bro taaught me differently --1 perfect night I had was seeing all 4 original members together at Hershey park stadium--around 2000 or so ---it was July 4th--I'll never forget it --Paul Stanley said  that if we sang loud he would come out into the crowd --well I had 25 th row center so I stood on my chair& touched the bottom of his boot as he came gliding by--- was a moment I shall never forget
[mesniu II] Friday, October 17, 2008 2:15:39 PM 

how did gene react to his harness not working?? see it on you tube.

[metalmaz] Sunday, September 28, 2008 1:55:37 PM 
ACE, Paul, Peter, Gene.

Kiss Rule!!!
[jerZgirl] Monday, September 22, 2008 5:49:30 PM 
Well I was looking forward to KISS coming round my parts on the world tour...but not to be.

So I settled for Mini KISS.  Bad.Ass.  LOL
[guitardude] Monday, September 22, 2008 5:44:18 PM 
KISS was it for me from 75-78 then Van Halen I came out and I was smitten,but then in 80 British Steel was out and it`s been no looking back ever since!!
[Rorschach] Monday, September 22, 2008 3:18:24 PM 
yeah kiss rox best rock band ever
[astarup] Monday, September 22, 2008 3:16:44 PM 

Im a KISS fan, have been since 75-76 ... oh my God Im old ... ha ha ... Ive met them 3 times, back in 84 and 88. Cool guys all the way :o)

[carnivalofsouls] Friday, August 15, 2008 4:49:15 PM 
KISS has been with me for many, many years. I like the idea of sustaining the past and not forgetting what made these guys imortal. KISS rock forever in my heart !! One of the greatest rock bands ever !!!!!!!!!!!!
[jeansmowing] Friday, August 15, 2008 4:57:41 AM 
Has Anyone seen Ace on his recent Tour? Apparently he's playing Hard Times and Strange ways!! Any word on his new album?
[dream theater] Wednesday, August 13, 2008 11:53:08 AM 

Once Ace left the band,that was it.They should have ended it in 96 after the so called '' Farewell Tour'' that seems to never end.Don't get me wrong i was a huge fan back in the day,but they have just become a joke.Two hired guns to replace Ace & Peter,no new material,same show etc,etc.Time to put it to rest. IMO.

Huge fan since '76 (when I was 4!) My older brother turned me on to them and I've followed them ever since. Seen them 15 times, have all their albums, CD's, DVD's etc. 

I believe Paul shot down the idea of a show to replace the members of KISS, but said they may look at finding members for an alternate KISS (maybe for a Vegas show or something). I think it's a bad idea and hope they don't do it personally, however, I wouldn't put it past them. As much as I love them, there are still some things they do/release that make me cringe.
[Return_of_Darth_Painkiller_0870] Wednesday, August 13, 2008 6:09:24 AM 

A reality show to replace the band members?  That would be interesting.  I think I would actually watch that just to see what happens to a band I've loved since '79.

Yeah! well at least kiss have been to New Zealand 3 times since 1980 and I have seen them 3 times. Judas priest cancelled and have never touched these shores.Beatles, Zeppelin Stones they've all been to NZ!!!
[crypticangle] Monday, July 14, 2008 4:12:31 AM 
KISS is my second favorite band--I saw them only once in concert back in 2000 I believe it was with all 4 original members & it was such a perfect night that I'll never forget it .

Kiss paved the way for a lot of the "shows" we see today! The DVD vol. #1 Kiss has a show from early 73' in a small club that shows the early stage show that they would eventually make huge! For theatrics they were the leader in the industry. As for now I think they should do tours of certain groups of albums, kind of like Maiden is doing. I've seen them a half dozen times and would go again in a heartbeat!
[Head banger] Sunday, July 13, 2008 9:15:20 PM 
I heard that Gene said they had inked a deal for a reality show to replace all the curent members.  I can't imagine a new kiss album

And, personaly, I think its fine to discuss a different band here.

I agree that I'd like to see another Kiss album, but as Paul Stanley states - he could write the next "Stairway To Heaven" (just a turn of phrase, before anyone points out their musical limitations), and people would still go; "Yeah, that's great... now play "Love Gun"!"

There isn't the same amount of money to be made in album sales nowadays, with the internet etc - real cash comes from touring & merchandising (something Maiden specialise in too).

The ALIVE35 tour, is apparently the most successful Kiss tour "ever" (not my words), so I don't think we will be seeing them hanging up their platforms just yet.

I saw them at the Download 08 Festival in the UK recently (along with Priest, who were excellent - been waiting to see them do "Sinner" again for 20 years), and Kiss went down a storm.

For what they do - the BIG show etc - they do very, very well. They might not move around quite as energetically as in the 70's or 80's, but there is definately a market, and appreciation for what they have to offer in concert.

That's a band that helped kick start the SHOCK METAL thing. ALICE COOPER, KISS, W.A.S.P. MARILYN MANSON are all METAL ICONS!!!!

Yes I'm a fan but they should either put out a new album or hang it up.
