KISS400 Greg Prato of Songfacts reports:

Think back to the early ’70s for a moment, shall we? If you turned on AM radio, took a gander at the charts, or looked at a local concert listing, such feel-good, easy-to-digest musical acts as John Denver, the Carpenters, and America were the popular flavors. And then… there was KISS. Specializing in high-decibel rock anthems, pyro-heavy live shows and mega-merchandising, the band refused to display their naked mugs to the press, creating an air of mystery and rampant rumors – some of which were true.

Although the best known (and many feel definitive) Kiss line-up featured Paul “Starchild” Stanley, Ace “Spaceman” Frehley, Gene “Demon” Simmons, and Peter “Cat” Criss, the band has endured countless members coming and going over the years, and even – rather unwisely – unmasked and pursued more radio friendly sounds during the ’80s. And since the band based their personas on fantasy, it’s sometimes hard to separate fact from fiction.

    Nice pic of FAKE KI$$. How about replacing it with the actual RRHOF inductees instead?

      If I posted a picture of the “classic line-up,” then someone else would complain that I am posting an old picture of KISS, as opposed to a current one. Can’t please everyone.

    Nice wig on Paul. We want Ace & Petah onstage at the HOF in full make-up.

    Got them all right!!!! I get a special commemorative KISS plaque which will only cost me $149.99

  • Lee on

    The plaque is signed by the ’14 line-up with a KISS RnR HOF inscription. Ace & Peter can add theirs to it at the next Chillah Convention in Jersey.

    I only got one right. As soon as I finished there was a knock at my door and there stood Vinnie Vincent threatening to sue me.
