Kiss Appreciation

Forget the fact that nowadays they print their name on any object in sight and sell it for a hefty fee, and also that their sex-mad bassist is now hosting a piss-poor reality show here in the UK...Fact is, during the 70's and 80's they released some fantastic songs which were loved across the world, classics including 'Love Gun' 'Strutter' 'I Was Made For Lovin You' 'Deuce' 'Reason To Live' 'Beth' and 'Crazy Crazy Nights'. Not so spectacular during the 90's, but the title track from Psycho Circus was an excellent return to form imo.

Then just a couple of years ago the band reformed (minus Ace) and performed with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, which turned out to be an excellent move, and one which i'm sure got Gene drooling at the mouth at the prospect of the cd and dvd sales!

So anyway, appreciate if u want, and remember - rock n roll all nite and party ev-ery day!

I'll agree with the song "Beth" as that has ALWAYS been a favorite of mine ...
but that's as far as I will appreciate this band.

That's good to hear !!

Trust me, when I say that it was the stupidest movie they ever did.

The only good thing about it was they performed the song "Beth" ...

The original 'Beth' is the best too, with Peter Criss on vocals.

I agree !!

And Peter was the one who sang it in their ridiculous movie.


Actually, the one thing I definitely understood about Kiss was why they wore makeup ...
I won't talk about when they "unmasked" themselves ...
That was one of the biggest mistakes they ever made !!

HA! I've never been much of a fan but I rememeber watching one of those "rockumentaries" in which they were discussing it. Then they showed the first video they did without it (some shite called "Lick it Up" I think) and, uh, yeah, you could why they should'a kept wearing it!

LICK IT UP

Don’t wanna wait ’til you know me better
Let’s just be glad for the time together
Life’s such a treat and it’s time you taste it
There ain’t a reason on earth to waste it
It ain’t a crime to be good to yourself!

Chorus:
Lick it up, lick it up, it’s only right now
Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah
Lick it up, lick it up, come on, come on
Lick it up, lick it up

Don’t need to wait for an invitation
You gotta live like you’re on vacation
There’s something sweet you can’t buy with money - lick it up, lick it up
It’s all you need, so believe me honey
It ain’t a crime to be good to yourelf!

Chorus
Lick it up, lick it up, it’s only right now
Lick it up, lick it up, ooh yeah
Lick it up, lick it up, come on, come on
Lick it up, lick it up

Come on - it’s only right now (it’s only right now)
Ooh yeah (ooh yeah) ooh yeah (ooh yeah), yeah yeah

Lick that up Karls!

Actually I think that was the 70's (I'd guess around 78). Remember watching it on TV when it was originally broadcast.

That aside, Kiss has always been a good band to see live (although last time I saw them with Tommy Thayer in the Ace makeup may end up being the last time as a result).

Some great tunes, especially the first 6 albums...Detroit Rock City is an all time rock anthem.

At their height, the stage show was a spectacle that was unrivaled.

Yeah, you're right ... it was 1978 when this movie first aired.
And to top it off ... now it's been released on DVD as of October 25th.
So, what did you think of this movie ??
