According to Peter Criss, life in Kiss was, after the first few years, a power struggle, with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley on one side, and him and Ace Frehley on the other. In a new interview, he discusses that dynamic and how it led to his departure from Kiss.
Former Kiss drummer Peter Criss has weighed in on the recent comments made by Aerosmith in which they called Kiss "a comic-book" band. Criss, appearing on New York's Q104.3, admitted that he was surprised by Steven Tyler's words as he never felt there was any sort of issue when the bands toured in the past.
A lot of people would love to see Led Zeppelin play again, and Kiss' Gene Simmons says there was one promoter who went as far as to use him as a go-between in attempting to reunite the band for at least one more show.
They've been around for decades and sold millions of albums along the way, but that doesn't mean the guys in Kiss don't still occasionally run up against an interviewer who's unfamiliar with their music -- or doesn't care enough to do a little preparation for the story.
The death of Paul Stanley's mother, Eva Eisen, has caused former Kiss lead guitarist Ace Frehley to pay tribute to her. Eisen passed away on Saturday (Sept. 29) from undisclosed causes at the age of 88.
A fully made-up Gene Simmons will be out on the field singing the National Anthem for the Oakland Raiders tonight. That leads to two questions, will he spit blood after the performance and why is he solo and not with the rest of the band?
On August 21, 2012, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) will release KISS’s 1976 multi-platinum, Destroyer Album called Destroyer: Resurrected. The newly remixed from the original master tapes by the album’s original producer, Bob Ezrin.
