"KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park"

I don’t mean it as an insult when I say that KISS is the ultimate triumph of style over substance. Musically, there isn’t much to distinguish them from Van Halen, Aerosmith, Boston, or any other arena-rock staple of the late 70s, but none of those other bands have had their own action figures or lunchboxes or credit cards. 1,073 more words

Dusting My Shelves: Peter Criss "Kiss Solo"

Artist: Peter Criss  Album: Peter Criss (KISS Solo)

I’ve always felt that Peter Criss was the step-child of Kiss. He never seemed to get the same credit or “buzz” in the media when it came to the other members. 521 more words

Ace Frehley (1978)


There is no doubt that Ace Frehley is truly one of the most underrated lead guitarists of the ’70s. Penning some of the greatest Hard Rock riffs of all time (“Cold Gin,” “Shock Me,”), Ace’s work with KISS was fantastic, and no matter what Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons try to do to cover up their losses, irreplaceable. 511 more words
