Be sure, KISS did not invent the concept. But they did perfect it — elevating the live album format…
Rock icons KISS have announced the rescheduled dates for the European leg of their 2021 ‘End of the Road’ World Tour. Find out the new dates here.
Author Christopher Long recounts his 45-year journey as a fanatic KISS freak culminating with the band’s recent “End of the Road” show at Sunrise, FL’s BB&T Center on August 6, 2019.
Dismissed frequently for being a disco record, “Dynasty” was EXACTLY the album that KISS needed at that time it was released — May 23, 1979. 40 years later, it stands tall as an impressive ROCK record.
Paul Stanley’s music-related success extends well beyond KISS, as he has not only released a pair of a solo albums, written and produced for other artists, but also starred in the Toronto production of Phantom Of The Opera and is about to showcase his painting with four gallery shows, his first of which will be at the Wentworth Gallery Short Hills in New Jersey on April 28th.
On his seventh solo album, 64-year-old guitar hero Ace Frehley proves he is still the most successful member of KISS, from a musical standpoint at least.
KISS’ Monster is the second release by the current lineup featuring Tommy Thayer (guitar) and Eric Singer (drums). Advancing on the musical path that 2009’s Sonic Boom took, Monster is an album to be judged by 2012 standards and as such is a great rock record! Whether songs like the debut single “Hell Or Hallelujah” finds its place in the heart and minds of longtime KISS fans is anyone’s guess. Are the songs on the same level as 1970’s KISS? Probably not, but it shouldn’t matter!
