KISS 50th Anniversary- Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons 2-12

To this day I still recall receiving in early 1974 the debut album from a largely unknown band called KISS, and my ambivalence on whether to take it seriously or not. It started right there with the startling high-resolution cover, before hearing even the first note. “Alice Cooper was the biggest thing in music in 1973,” Cooper himself once told me here In the Studio, “so a band with four Alices? Couldn’t miss.”

KISS lifers Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons mark the golden anniversary of that debut with me here In the Studio the week of February 12. -Redbeard
