One of my favorite Ace solos:
I was 12 or 13 back then... KISS Alive was played endlessly on my turntable.
Some of my favorite videos of them
No reason they should not be in the R&R Hall of Fame. The voters need to be fired and labeled as musical retards!!!
The original KISS had it all, great songs, great show, played with balls & always brought it live.
The Winterland Ballroom show is THE PIVITAL SHOW in KISStory....IMO
It rocked hard...it showed that they were here to stay....and that they had talent!
Loved them during the early days, I too had them on the record player endlessly.
I still listen to KISS through Alive II a lot.
These videos reminded me that there was a time (however brief) before all the merchandising and crowds filled with 7 year olds with mom and dad.
Still love everything (except Destroyer) up to Alive II...
This sounds great! Better than the studio version with the bs piano.
One of the best damn rock bands ever.
I still love them, but never listen to anything they made after 1979. Maybe except for Domino. Love that one. In fact, I just bought Ace Frehley's solo album from the 70's.
Their 2009 album Sonic Boom is very "Klassic KISS" & the best thing they've done since 1992's Revenge.
I love the first 3 albums. You know you're old when you think of Destroyer as the new KISS album
Yeah. I saw a used Alive II in LP for $15! I saved up hard wfor that 9.99 baby!
First time I saw KISS in December of 1975, there was exactly ONE t-shirt available for sale in the lobby, and it was very low end. It looked like an iron-on decal. No other merch at all.
Destroyer was my introduction to Kiss. Hearing those first 2 songs again on Alive 2, Detroit Rock City and King of the Nighttime World, with Ace holding that feedback was one of those moments that made me want to pick up guitar. Great so see it rehearsed here in this video.
Mine was the drc harmony lead on alive II
That's the KISS I loved. Then Dynasty came out..
Awesome thread that brings back so many good memories of my KISS Army years. I loved that band and it was Alive! that got me started. When I heard that record through headphones in 1977 for the first time, I was hooked. Begged my dad for an electric guitar to complement my acoustic. I was off and running with rock star dreams!
