I want to say it was 1976 and the KISS Destroyer tour came to Richmond, Va. Richmond Coliseum, big deal. I was a college student studying mass communications broadcast news at VCU and I was a DJ at the college’s little radio station WJRB then WVCW. I was criticized for playing KISS. I didn’t care because their 3 chord rock spoke to me and my friends. So here I am. Great KISS crowd.
Here we go NOW.
The iconography of KISS seems to be the lasting single driving force that have kept a 3 chord rock band together for 45 years.The makeup, costumes and over the top stage show truly is one of a kind. As they say only KISS could do that.
Old film behind the band. Ace Frehley.
Graphic novel film type stuff behind the solo performance of Tom Thayer, a very good RnR lead guitarist. He and Paul Stanley riffed out Won’t get fooled again then the drummer smashed it to it as well. They then returned to Lick it up.
