(Classic Rock Magazine)   Bitter Ace Frehley says he has no problems with current KISS lineup being named to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Although he does refer to it as "half a Kiss cover band." And don't get him started on ... uh-oh, someone got him started on Gene Simmons   (classicrockmagazine.com) divider line 59

Representative of the unwashed masses: They actually did try that at one point.  People didn't want to see new makeup.


CSB Time!!!!!

During a period of extended unemployment I took to trolling on CraigsList "Musicians Wanted" ads looking to recruit players for "Tribute Bands."  The fun was coming up with bands that had recognition but no one wanted to see or a niche that just angered the fans.

I underestimated with the appeal of "Hootie and the Blowfish" right out of the gate.  It terrified me that there would be such a market, and a willing one at that.

Putting together a band to do just "Chinese Democracy" was amusing especially since I specified I needed a "Fat Axl."  The emails from folks wanting that job were hilarious.  It came down to asking them "How much would you be willing to plump up for the part?"

But the one that put it out of the park was recruiting for a KISS Tribute band for the sans-makeup era.  After the typical schlubs who would show up for anything got weeded out I was astonished at the volume of venom from KISS fans about even hinting that the era existed and that there would be a market for it.

Good times.....

Never been a big Kiss fan -- strip away the makeup and the bombast and the explosions and the songs just ain't that good.
But the movie "Detroit Rock City" totally nailed that late '70s Kiss freak era.

FuryOfFirestorm: Skarekrough: I wonder what it's like to be in a band where most of the members appear to be in an active race to prove which one is the biggest douche.

I read Peter Criss' biography "Makeup To Breakup", and good god, they were all trainwrecks on legs. Gene was a complete control freak that couldn't get enough pussy. Didn't matter how fat and/or ugly the groupie was, just as long as she had a pulse and a vagina. Ace Frehley was a head-case that would jack-off at the most inappropriate times. Paul Stanley was a little too obsessed with interior design, curtain patterns, and spending lots of time alone in his room with guys (NTTAWWT). Even Peter Criss didn't hold back on himself, admitting that he was a sloppy drunk who couldn't keep his dick in his pants. It's a pretty interesting read


Wow, that does sound interesting. Wait a minute, that doesn't sound interesting at all.

Personally I couldn't stand that movie. It felt like a 90 minute commercial for Kiss that Kiss didn't bother to show up for. They should have at least met the band or something.

The bassist, who was an American soldier as well, in the band I was in when I was stationed in Germany was also the Ace Frehley in a German KISS tribute band called KISSED.
