Rock T-Shirts, Classic Rock Collection.
Kiss was formed in New
York in '72 by guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley (Stanley Eisen) and
Gene Simmons (Gene Klein). The line-up was rounded out by drummer
Peter Criss (Crisscoula), located through a Rolling Stone ad, and
lead guitarist Ace Frehley (Paul Frehley), who answered an ad in the
Village Voice. The band's cartoon image, kabuki makeup and
4th-of-July stageshow concept was in place from the start, and they
began promoting their own hall shows in NYC. TV director Bill Aucoin
saw them, became their manager, and secured a deal for them with Neil
Bogart's Casablanca Records within two weeks. Three LPs were released
in a year's time, but the live fourth LP, Alive! (1975) contained
their first huge hit, "Rock And Roll All Nite." Until the early '80,
Kiss was unstoppable, with two huge-selling Marvel Comics, a network
TV movie and four simultaneously-released solo albums under their
studded belts. In '80, Criss left for a solo career and since then,
the drum and lead positions have been ever-changing. In '83, the band
stripped away the makeup and celebrated renewed interest.
In '96, the original band reformed (made up?), and took their full
costume-makeup-pyro 1976 show on the road--for a year-long
stint--resulting in one of the most successful rock tours ever.
Conjecture that the band wanted to quit on a high note has remained
unproven; anything could happen in Kiss' future.
