The Kiss FAQ. The New York Times. December 30, The song " The Oath " is allegedly about giving into Satan:. Decades later, KISS still capitalizes on this so-called deal with the Devil - and so have the band's fans.
What is the truth when it comes to KISS and their hardcore rock and roll lifestyle? Most kids were infatuated with the look of Kiss , not their music.
Decked out in outrageously flamboyant costumes and makeup, the band fashioned a captivating stage show featuring dry ice, smoke bombs, elaborate lighting, blood spitting, and fire breathing that captured the imaginations of thousands of kids.
But Kiss ' music shouldn't be dismissed -- it was a commercially potent mix of anthemic, fist-pounding hard rock driven by sleek hooks and ballads powered by loud guitars, cloying melodies, and sweeping strings.
It was a sound that laid the groundwork for both arena rock and the pop-metal that dominated rock in the late '80s.
Kiss was the brainchild of Gene Simmons bass, vocals and Paul Stanley rhythm guitar, vocals , former members of the New York-based hard rock band Wicked Lester ; the duo brought in drummer Peter Criss through his ad in Rolling Stone, while guitarist Ace Frehley responded to an advertisement in The Village Voice.
Even at their first Manhattan concert in , the group's approach was theatrical, and Flipside producer Bill Aucoin offered the band a management deal after the show.
Two weeks later, the band was signed to Neil Bogart 's fledgling record label, Casablanca. Kiss released their self-titled debut in February of ; it peaked at number 87 on the U.
By April of , the group had released three albums and had been touring America constantly, building up a sizable fan base. Culled from those numerous concerts, Alive!
Their follow-up, Destroyer , was released in March of and became the group's first platinum album; it also featured their first Top Ten single, Peter Criss ' power ballad "Beth.
A Gallup poll named Kiss the most popular band in America. Show 25 50 Refresh. Why are some live album releases grouped under a master, but some are their own album?
Reply Notify me Helpful. Spikedge July 25, Report. Is it just me or is Dynasty LP not listed? I first heard Kiss on Detroit radio, I think it was "Nothing To Lose," from their debut, then went to see them out of curiosity.
The opener was a band called Rush that were pretty good. This was Dec. In Nov. I wouldn't see Kiss again until Jan. The Rockets were the first band on that occasion--I think this was at Olympia Stadium.
I liked the first 2 or 3 albums. I love Kiss! They are 'The Mcdonalds of Music' they are everywhere and they taste great but I wouldn't want to base my musical diet on them!
Reply Notify me 8 Helpful. Appealed heavily to me in first through third grade, what with the action figures and all that stuff. But even to my kid ears it was always only one or two songs per album that were really any good.
I remember selling off all my KISS albums to another kid in middle school as I had started to more fully appreciate music.
KISS sounds like absolute garbage to my fifty year old years. First 8 albums are superb. But man, those first albums are sweeeeet.
When KISS first appeared in people either loved them, fanatically, or hated them, equally strongly. Nothing has changed in 43 years.
I love them. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful. DannyVanEechaute March 14, Report. Reply Notify me 2 Helpful. The only band that broke Beatles concert records, that's a big thing for my generation Gene Simmons quotes are words to live by, like don't take crap from anyone, better than what they teach in school Finally they're back to their roots with Monster at their 40th anniversary Be well, LPWJ.
Some Of My Favourites by piharrod. Simmons went on to note that "fairly or unfairly, rock and roll is about image". Simmons later suggested the name change to "Vinnie Vincent".
Vincent started actively pushing to join Kiss as a full member. Despite the misgivings that both Simmons and Stanley harbored about his personality, Vincent was taken into the band.
Stanley designed a character, "The Wiz"   also known as "The Egyptian Warrior",  and make-up centered around an Egyptian ankh , for Vincent.
A persona as "The Ankh Warrior" or similar is not mentioned in the book at all. Vincent's personality did not mesh well with either Stanley or Simmons, and he was dismissed from Kiss at the end of the Creatures tour.
He was quickly reinstated before recording started for Lick It Up because Simmons and Stanley could not find a new lead guitarist on such short notice.
Vincent appeared on the cover of Lick It Up and was credited as the lead guitarist. Personality issues arose once again, and Vincent was fired following the Lick It Up tour, due in part to excessive guitar soloing at a concert in Quebec.
He was replaced by Mark St. John birth name Mark Norton. Vincent's work on Creatures of the Night was not officially recognized until the album was remastered in Before long, Vincent fell out with Simmons and Stanley for a third time, and they again severed their musical ties.
Persistent rumors circulated for years among Kiss fans regarding the true reason for Vincent's dismissals from Kiss, with at least one band member refusing to comment except to say that legally it was not up for discussion.
Simmons stated in an interview several years later that Vincent's firing was for "unethical behavior", but he did not elaborate:.
I named Vincent Cusano, 'Vinnie Vincent'. That's the only gift he's allowed. It's interesting that Vinnie hasn't changed his name back to Vinnie Cusano.
Vinnie, for the record, was fired for unethical behavior, not because of lack of talent. The guy is very talented. He was unethical.
He was fired. Sensing it was time for a change, Kiss made the decision to abandon its trademark make-up and costumes. The band officially appeared in public without make-up for the first time since its very early days on a September 18, , appearance on MTV, which coincided with the release of Lick It Up.
Lick It Up became Kiss' first Gold record in three years, but the tour was even more sparsely attended than the previous one.
Vincent did not get along with Simmons and Stanley, and he left the band at the conclusion of the tour in March Vincent's replacement was Mark St.
John , a session player and guitar tutor. With St. John, Kiss released the album Animalize on September 13, Animalize followed the success of Lick It Up , and due in part to consistent MTV play for the " Heaven's on Fire " video, Animalize was the band's best-selling record in America during the decade, with over two million albums sold.
With the success of the album and subsequent tour, Kiss had recaptured some of its earlier glory though not to the level of its s heyday.
John, however, came down with reactive arthritis during tour rehearsals, and only performed at a handful of shows before being dismissed from the band in December The band hired Bruce Kulick to replace St.
Kulick had previously filled in for St. John during the first two months of the Animalize tour. Kulick was Kiss' fourth lead guitarist in less than three years, but he stayed with the band for 12 years.
One of the first concerts Kulick played as an official member of the band was at Detroit, Michigan's Cobo Hall. This was later released as the band's first home video, Animalize Live Uncensored.
Crazy Nights , in particular, was one of Kiss' most successful albums overseas. The single " Crazy Crazy Nights " reached No. Kiss ended the decade with the October release Hot in the Shade.

In March , it was discovered that Carr had a tumor on his heart. It was successfully removed the following month, but more tumors were soon discovered in his lungs.

There were many many nights when I was looking around the stage and going "This is magic. What was important about these shows is we had a much bigger task than people understood.
Our biggest competition was our history. We didn't have to be as good as we used to be. We had to be as good as people thought we were.
The show wasn't to be a replica of what we've done, it was to be what people imagined we had done. We had to be totally committed.
In terms of the stage show for the reunion tour, what we wanted to do was look at the '77 show in a sense as a pinnacle. That is what we chose to build on but not copy.
There are also elements from other shows too in the sense that there's bombs and the flying rig and the breaking of the guitars. At that time, it was the ultimate Kiss show in the sense that we looked at the show, which we thought was our best and said, "Top this.
