KISS 50th Anniversary- Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons

For the golden anniversary of Kiss, lead singer/guitarist/songwriter Paul Stanley told me about the band fraternity of groups with whom they shared the stage some fifty years ago, "The lovefest ended when we hit the stage, because we were there to destroy them." Gene Simmons agrees, "Putting on the make up was like putting on warpaint."

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

I still recall receiving in early 1974 the debut album from a largely unknown band called KISS. "Alice Cooper was the biggest thing in music in 1973," Alice once told me here In the Studio, "so a band with four Alices? Couldn't miss." Paul Stanley & Gene Simmons guest here the week of February 12 for the KISS 50th anniversary.
