How embarassing. I put fookin' KEANE and I can't believe I forgot Kiss
Like Keane, Kiss is another band I get frowned upon for liking. While they are not the most original-sounding, lyrically-moving band of the 70s, there is no denying their influence as a rock presentation. They've got some really fun music, a likeable arrogance, and one of five best live shows I have ever seen in my life. I spent a lot of money collecting their merchandise too, and a lot of breath bragging about how Gene Simmons was my hero. I suppose it's a mentality so far gone from my current state that it was easy to miss. The next thing I would like to do is explore their solo albums, starting with Ace Frehley
(based on a terrific song called New York Groove
So there you have it. Lesh, the lost member of the Kiss Army. The new DVD is on the top of my Christmas list!
