    well...i cud see sm kiss fans here....sadly no discussions hav been taking place about the band..

    i first heard about them wen i played the video game KISS:psycho Circus, based on the comic book by Todd McFarlane, which was itself based on the antics by of the band members...
    neway...recently i saw sm clippings frm their massive Alive tour and these dudes kick ass on stage....from spitting blood (fake blood) to breaking guitars....gr8 pyro works....awesome....

    KISS freakin rule...

    Like you, I too got hooked listening to thier Psycho Circus album... it's come to be one of my favorites, especially "Journey of 10,000 years". Apart from that, I've heard practically all of thier great hits, as most of their compilations have got almost the same tracks...

    KISS is probably the band to be when it comes to delivering a performance. With rockets shooting out from the guitars, fake blood acts, really whacko uniforms and obviousy, the unique on-stage personas, they kick a$$.

    Check them out unmasked on their unplugged tour. Listen to earlier albums like Destroyer and Creatures of The Night...

    And did you know? KISS was so expletive (in the ***ual way) and influential in the 70s that they came to be known as Knights In Satan's Service???

    Hey, want more KISS? Download any concert of theirs or tune in to Detroit Rock City, a movie based on them (kinda). It airs regularly on HBO.

    BTW, Nickelodeon's Son Of A Rockstar... the rockstar is based on Gene Simmons...

    Whatever... KISS rule.. that's the bottomline...

    Yeah.. I guess they did start the corpse paint thing... but, no other band has successfully used this painting strategy to their utmost...

    I saw the Idol episode with Gene Simmons... liked it..
    He's also appeared on the 70's Show.. as the Demon (his KISS persona)... check out his axe.. I mean, really...

    BTW, the 4 KISS personas are: The Demon, The Catman, Starchild and Space Ace

    i ve seen the 70's show episode...

    in the comic book the characters r similar...but they are named differently
    Starchild = The Starbearer
    The Catman = The Beastking
    Space Ace = The Celestial
    The Demon is the same
