Thanks!!


Serious question though: Why would KISS replace Peter Criss on drums on albums and in the studio, but still bring him out on tour with them? Why not just dump him for Anton Fig or whatever?

The fans want what they want, and what they want is not good music. After all, they're at a KISS concert.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

But why worry about "good" music even on the disc?

As for the studio, he *would* not play sometimes. All the other times he *could* not play. During the concerts, his errors were less noticeable and I think they would sometimes have a second drummer.

"Kiss once took an IQ test, and I was on top. I guess my brain was working good that morning – thank God for good genes. I think Paul got the lowest score. No, that didn’t surprise me. A frontman doesn’t have to be a genius, he just has to have the right moves."


Quote
Ace says he has an IQ of 163, and most people fall between the 70-130 range, which begs the question, why isn’t Ace one of the lifetime members of Mensa? But it’s not like I don’t agree with him. Especially after Stanley’s comments about Patti Smith earlier this week. Because anyone hates on Patti Smith is stupid. Duh. Unfortunately, just as I was applauding Frehey’s timely Stanley diss, Ace went on to detail his concern for the the upcoming End of the World Day on December 12th, 2012:


Quote
"The sun has an 11-year cycle and it’s coming towards an end, so they’re expecting more sun-spot activity, solar winds and solar flares that could affect computers and power grids. Some planets are aligning, from what I understand, so that could cause an earthquake and severe weather. So a lot of crazy of things could happen."

Fantastic thread, buffcoat!

Thanks, handamp, I'm glad you like it.

It's probably my favorite thing I've ever been a part of on the Internet. The four (original) members of KISS are all so terrible, but each in their own, most fascinating of ways.

At some point I'll review the four songs on KILLERZ.

My introduction to KISS was when my neighbor dressed up as Peter Criss (I was a couple of years too young). Peter was consequently my favorite until I learned about his uh personality.

It's like he was banking all these years that "Extreme Petulance" might become a professional sport and then he would be world champion.
