You need to read "Makeup to Breakup: My Life In and Out of Kiss" by Peter Criss.

Ace's book "No Regrets" touched on some of the stuff, but Peter lays it all out on how Gene is all about greed.
edit:Paul too, in the way they screwed him and Ace out of big profits from the reunion tours.

I still listen to them, especially anything from the 1970s as new killer bootlegs from then always appear every year, but doubt I will ever buy anything that says KISS again.

Gene simmons is about as stupid as his negro haircut.
Kiss sucks, no matter how many "oh, but c'mon man", "They have good stuff", "you just gotta get into it" you get.
They're just not a good band, I feel ashamed when someone I know likes them.

they used to be an excelent Rock band! right up until 'Revenge' (that one has some good ones on it too)

and the whole ridicilous merchandisning thing started all the way back in the 70s, so this is nothing new.. but this.. this fucking thing just fucks my mind!

The members of Kiss probably had no say in this. Either way, who gives a shit?

Boring, Kiss have tons of stupid merch shit. Let's talk about records, I'm listening to this as we speak



First Kiss album I ever listened to, and I think it's among their most underrated ones along with Psycho Circus. Pretty great from start to finish

KISS never had any integrity. Really can't be overemphasized. They were conceived from the get-go as a brand and a money-making machine. Simmons has no respect for his own music - just read some of the descriptions he's given of it over the years.

Still, they can be a decent band at times. Just don't get worked up when they do dumb shit like this, because that's really what they're all about. Ghost predecessors in all respects.

Awful grandpa rock band whose merchandise is infinitely more creative than their boring music.

If you took a poll of the bands that started the first wave of black metal / thrash metal / death metal / etc, you will find many say one of the first bands they got into was KISS.

Just off the top of my head,
-Buzz from the Melvins
-Wehrmacht
-James Murphy said around 1990 that he knew EVERY Ace solo from the 1970s.
