Ace is my favorite.

He can't play guitar worth a sh*t, but he seems the most genuine.

Gene Simmons is a money-grubbing dick.

Can I buy the Officially Licensed KISS Rock and Roll Hall of Fame re-issue of the KISS Hello Kitty calendar?

In other news, KISS is up for election to the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame.

COINCIDENCE?

"I think religion is terrific, religion is good for mankind. Without the Ten Commandments," he pauses to stress, "Jews gave you that,"

Yes, Gene, jews invented concepts like not stealing and murdering. Prior to that is was just bands of nomads committing genocide because they thought ghosts told them to. Oh wait...
 
2013-10-17 07:44:16 AM
What is it with this guy and his extreme Jewishness? Look at me! I'm a Jew! Jews gave you civilization. Jews gave rock and roll to you. Put it in the soul of everyone.

I wonder if he's aware that most cancers are the result of Gene mutation.

It's not nice to speak ill of the dead, Gene

Oh my god his face. Gene Simmons has now fully transformed into a turtle.

/ Saw Ace Frehley play in a small club nearly 20 years ago, pre-KISS reunion. He was drunk and terrible but the crowd loved it.
 
2013-10-17 08:08:51 AM
See, though, he's a bass player, which means he's not talented enough to be either a rhythm or lead guitarist, and not physically fit enough to be a drummer.

/Former bass player.
 
2013-10-17 08:10:15 AM
He has the nerve to talk about other people being a "cancer"?
Has he SEEN that god awful abomination of the National Anthem he puked all over England?  I'm surprised they didn't declare it a crime against humanity.

What typical deluded asshole.

Get off your high horse, the rest of the world does just fine without your Abrahamic cult, Gene.

And your band sucks. Yours was one of the only concert in my life that I walked out of, like three songs in. If I saw you in a bar I wouldn't even tell people about it afterwards. Go sell some more action figures.
 
2013-10-17 08:40:41 AM
It doesn't matter that to me that their music is not complex or it doesn't require a lot of skill to play, I like it.

That said, Gene Simmons is a dick.

H31N0US: And your band sucks. Yours was one of the only concert in my life that I walked out of, like three songs in.


why would you pay money to see kiss and then walk out?  because if it was a make-up show, you knew what to expect, and if it was a no make-up show, you knew it would suck.

so come on, give.  you didn't really leave a kiss show 3 songs in, did you?

/I once did leave a guns N roses show about 4 songs in.  Slash was just about too drunk to stand, Axel was clearly unable to sing.  It was pretty bad.  Jack Murphy Stadium show, they were on after Metallica.  This would have been 91 or so, James was still bandaged up from that burn in Canada and only played Enter Sandman's guitar part, that Metal Church dude was standing in on guitar.  Most ridiculous show I have ever attended.  Body Count opened (and mostly sucked, god what a stupid experiment, Ice Tea doing metal) and then Metallica played, and then they just stopped for close to two hours while they dismantled Metallica's stage and built a new one for GNR.  What farking hubris.
 
2013-10-17 08:44:50 AM
I've met all 4 original members a few times individually over the past 30 years or so.
Here's how my experiences went:

Gene: Mega-Douche
Ace: Depends on which day you catch him (mostly a bit of a prick)
Peter: Still thinks he's a mega-star. Met him 4 times, and each time was worse than the last
Paul: Warm and always cool.

A man willing to parody himself on a late night Adult Swim show is cool in my book.

The story is that Frehley left the band after seeing that they were going to start putting their images on lunchboxes.

slayer199: I'm not a big Kiss fan...can a Kiss fan please tell me what Peter or Ace did to be hated by Gene?


drugs, alcohol, walked away from the biggest band on earth to....  do drugs and alcohol.

I would wager he carries a bit of a grudge.  Gene and Paul were not into that scene and basically BEGGED the guys to stay a band.  That is why those terrible solo records exist, Ace and Peter wanted to go do solo crap (and drugs).   I'm sure there is more to it, but it is mostly that I believe.

MFAWG: The story is that Frehley left the band after seeing that they were going to start putting their images on lunchboxes.


I remember a quote from Ace, but I have to paraphrase, he was talking about Paul making the band do the disco tune I Was Made For Loving You.  He said something like:

"Kiss lost a lot of fans that day.  I was one of them."

But it was their only song that wasn't a carbon copy of their other songs, it sucked but it was different.

grokca: But it was their only song that wasn't a carbon copy of their other songs


I must disagree.  They have done lots of very widely varying songs.  But, only a couple ever get played on the radio.  They had virtually no commercial billboard success.

However, I do not disagree that that song sucks.

/And the difference between a pizza and a bass player is that a pizza can feed a family.

Went to the Kiss coffee shop in Myrtle beach. They were selling mugs with all 4 original guys faces on them. Totally sold out except for Peter. They had cases on Peter Criss mugs but not a single one from the other 3.

Just seemed sad.

When I was a kid and kiss released their four solo albums.  I bought Ace, Paul, Gene, and decided to forgo Peter until I realized that I needed Peter's to complete the poster inserts.   Made my mom give it to me for Christmas.

Kiss was My First Rock band. They were perfect for that role, and I appreciate the part they played in making rock accessible to a 12 year old, and teaching me the value of pissing of my parents through music. I still enjoy tracks off Dressed To Kill.

/The fan base is about as dedicated as the Deadheads, and after 20ish Dead shows, while I don't understand it, I can show the fans some respect.
 
2013-10-17 09:33:43 AM

The Muthaship: They have done lots of very widely varying songs.


when Dynasty was released, they really hadn't done much that was all that different.  They weren't quite AC\DC, hell, Destroyer has Beth and Do You Love Me, but they were a rock band.  That disco crap was kind of like the wakeup call to Kiss fans - "YES, we will do ANYTHING that we think will turn a profit".  Considering that the album went triple platinum....  they weren't wrong to do the song, I suppose.  It made them some dough.

/Actually I have only seen Kiss once - and it was the Dynasty tour.   Saw them in Birmingham.  I remember the show being the greatest thing a kid could have possibly experienced, at the time.  Give me a break, I was 7 or 8 at the time.

He was the worst member with the coolest singing voice. He did Rod Stewart better than Rod Stewart. But he had no talent otherwise and he snorted a 6-7 million USD fortune up his nose.

That and plugging his dick into any woman (And I mean any woman - check out his autobiography) are all he really lives for. Though he's apparently huge into comic books also.

I'm pretty sure that's Tommy Thayer (formerly of Black n Blue).

He is now wearing Ace's makeup. When Vinny was in the band he had his own 'Ankh Warrior' makeup scheme (although originally he was shown makeup free on Lick It Up).

That's right!

Wasn't Thayer Ace's guitar tech for a while?

frepnog: so come on, give.  you didn't really leave a kiss show 3 songs in, did you?


It was a free ticket, and the only reason I went was because I knew a whole bunch of people who were going. The tailgate at least was pretty fun.

I saw a dude who had obviously gone to great lengths to resemble MOP era James Hetfield. I mean, it was like straight out of a 1985 Circus Mag. I asked him if anyone told him he looked just like Rob Keel.

But yeah it was a makeup show, no Bruce Kulick or Vinnie Vincent so after three boring three chord 4/4 songs, I went back outside to wait for my friends. Cheaper beer out there anyway.

Yeah, I think he was. Tommy was KISS's tour manager for years, and from what I read, part of his job was to be ready to go at any time to fill in for Ace if he couldn't play a show.

Coincidentally, the only time I ever saw KISS, Black n Blue opened up for them.
