Criss and Frehley subsequently left the band again, and have been replaced by Singer and Tommy Thayer. The band has continued with its original stage makeup, with Singer and Thayer using the original Catman and Spaceman makeup, respectively.

In September , Kiss announced that, after 45 years of recording and performing, it would be embarking on its ongoing final tour, the End of the Road World Tour , in Kiss is one of the best-selling bands of all time , having sold more than 75 million records worldwide, including 21 [5] million RIAA -certified albums.

Kiss has 14 Platinum albums, with three albums being multi-Platinum. That band recorded one album, which was shelved by Epic Records , and played a handful of live shows.

Simmons and Stanley, feeling a new musical direction was needed, abandoned Wicked Lester in and began forming a new group.

Simmons and Stanley met Criss in a nightclub where he was playing drums. After hearing Criss sing, they thought Criss should be in the new band they were forming.

Criss then auditioned for, and later joined their new band. The three focused on a much harder style of rock than that played by Wicked Lester.

They also began experimenting with their image, by wearing makeup and various outfits. Although the performance went well, Ellis disliked the group's image and music.

In early January , the group added lead guitarist Ace Frehley. Frehley impressed the group with his first audition, although he showed up wearing two different colored sneakers, one red and one orange.

A few weeks after Frehley joined, the classic lineup was solidified as the band to be named Kiss. Criss mentioned that he had been in a band called Lips, so Stanley said something to the effect of "What about Kiss?

The art department asked him if he wanted it to be redrafted to be perfect and he said, "It got us this far, let's leave well enough alone.

Our number one rule has always been no rules. The letters happened to look similar to the insignia of the Nazi SS , a symbol that is outlawed in Germany by Section 86a of the German criminal code.

However, Simmons and Stanley, both Jewish, have denied any intentional likeness to Nazi symbolism in the logo. Since , most of the band's album covers and merchandise in Germany have used a different logo, in which the letters "SS" look like the letters "ZZ" backwards.

The band's name has repeatedly been the subject of rumors pertaining to alleged hidden meanings. Simmons has denied all of these claims. The first Kiss performance took place on January 30, , for an audience of fewer than ten people at the Popcorn Club renamed Coventry shortly afterward in Queens.

Our first show ever was at Coventry. Coventry was a study in contrasts. The first time we played there was nobody there.

The last time we played there, you could barely get in the door. On March 13 of that year, the band recorded a five-song demo tape with producer Eddie Kramer.

Former TV director Bill Aucoin , who had seen the group at a handful of showcase concerts in the summer of , offered to become the band's manager in mid-October.

Kiss agreed, with the condition that Aucoin sign the band to a record label within two weeks. On November 1, , Kiss became the first act signed to former teen pop singer and Buddah Records executive Neil Bogart 's new label, Casablanca Records.

It was at this concert that, for the first of many times, Simmons accidentally set his hair which was coated in hairspray ablaze while performing his fire-breathing routine.

Casablanca and Kiss promoted the album heavily throughout the spring and summer of Being in Kiss in the very first year and touring around the United States, we felt like we were taking off.

It was like somebody pushing you into the deep end of the pool whether you can swim or not. The early years of Kiss were far from glamorous. We rode in a station wagon hundreds of miles every day.

We would take turns driving and sleeping in the back. We ate burgers at roadside taverns. We stopped and peed on the side of long stretches of highway when we couldn't find a town anywhere near.

Becoming a rock star was better than anything and beyond anything I ever imagined. There were moments of doubt for me that we were gonna make it.

This broadcast included Simmons's first televised interview, a conversation with Mike Douglas in which Simmons declared himself "evil incarnate", eliciting uncomfortable reactions from a confused studio audience.

Fellow Jewish-American guest Totie Fields said it would be humorous if beneath all the make-up Simmons was "just a nice Jewish boy ". Simmons responded, "You should only know", to which Fields replied, "I do.

You can't hide the hook ", a reference to the stereotypical "Jewish" nose. Despite the publicity and constant touring, Kiss initially sold just 75, copies.

Meanwhile, the group and Casablanca Records were losing money quickly. The band while touring stopped in Los Angeles in August to begin recording its second album, Hotter Than Hell , which was released on October 22, With Hotter Than Hell quickly dropping off the charts, Kiss was pulled from its tour to quickly record a new album.

Casablanca head Bogart stepped in to produce the next album, trading in the murky, distorted sound of Hotter Than Hell for a cleaner and slightly poppier sound.

Dressed to Kill , released on March 19, , fared slightly better commercially than Hotter Than Hell. It also contained what later became the band's signature song, " Rock and Roll All Nite ".

Although Kiss albums had not proved to be big sellers, the band was quickly gaining a reputation for its live performances.

Kiss concerts featured such spectacles as Simmons spitting "blood" an effect made primarily from raw egg whites, strawberry syrup and red food coloring and "breathing fire" spitting flammable liquid at a torch , Frehley soloing as his guitar burst into flames light and smoke bombs placed inside the guitar , Criss's elevating drum riser that emitted sparks, Stanley's Townshend -style guitar smashing, and pyrotechnics throughout the show.

By mid, Casablanca was almost bankrupt, and Kiss was in danger of losing its record contract. Both parties desperately needed a commercial breakthrough if they were to survive.

I saw a pattern emerging with us on the road. Every night, I'd ask somebody before the show, "How are we doing? All of a sudden it was becoming the norm.

For me the first realization that things were on an upswing was when we played the Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio.

Before the show I went on stage, looked out through the curtain and saw this big crowd and said to myself, "My God, this is really happening!

Kiss wanted to express the excitement felt at its concerts which its studio albums had so far failed to do with its first live album. It was the first version of the song with a guitar solo, and this recording has become the best-known version.

It is also the basis of most covers, such as the cover by Poison in In recent years the band admitted that additional audience noise had been added to the album, as well as overdubs on select guitar and vocal spots, not to deceive fans, but to add more "excitement and realism" to the record.

The success of Alive! Following this success, Kiss partnered with producer Bob Ezrin , who had previously worked with Alice Cooper. The result was Destroyer released March 15, , Kiss's most musically ambitious studio album to date.

Destroyer , with its rather intricate production using an orchestra, choir, and numerous tape effects , was a departure from the raw sound of the first three studio albums.

Album art was designed by Ken Kelly , who had drawn Tarzan and Conan the Barbarian and also produced album covers for acts such as Rainbow and Manowar.

Only when the ballad " Beth ", the B-side of the single " Detroit Rock City ", began to gain more airplay on FM radio did the album's sales rebound.

The single was subsequently reissued with the A- and B-sides reversed. The show, co-produced by Bill Aucoin, helped introduce Kiss to an even wider audience.

In addition to the three songs, Kiss was the subject of a brief comedic "interview" conducted by Paul Lynde. This included Lynde noting, when hearing the members' first names, "Oh, I love a good religious group.

Two more highly successful studio albums were released in less than a year: Rock and Roll Over November 11, and Love Gun June 30, A second live album, Alive II , was released on October 14, All three albums were certified platinum soon after their release.

In Japan, Kiss performed five sold-out shows at Tokyo's Budokan Hall , breaking the previous record of four held by the Beatles. In May , Kiss made the first of its many comics appearances, in Howard the Duck issue 12, published by Marvel Comics.

The first Kiss compilation album, Double Platinum , was issued on April 2, This double album included many remixed versions of the band's hits, as well as "Strutter '78", a re-recorded version of a song from the group's first album.

At Bogart's request, this version of the song featured a disco influence. During this period, Kiss merchandise became a substantial source of income for the group.

Some of the products released included a pair of comic books issued by Marvel the first contained ink mixed with actual blood donated by the group , a pinball machine, dolls, "Kiss Your Face Makeup" kits, Halloween masks, board games , lunchboxes, trading cards and many other pieces of memorabilia.

Membership in the Kiss Army , the band's fan club, was in the six figures. Kiss was at its commercial peak by To that end, an ambitious, two-pronged strategy was devised for The first part involved the simultaneous release of four solo albums from the members of Kiss.

Although Kiss has claimed that the solo albums were intended to ease rising tensions within the band, its record contract did in fact call for four solo records, each of them counting as half an album toward the group's five-record commitment.

It was the first time that all current members of a rock band had released solo albums on the same day. For the band members, it was a chance to showcase their individual musical styles and tastes outside of Kiss, and in some cases to collaborate with contemporary artists.

Simmons's was the most diverse of the four, featuring hard rock, ballads, Beatles -influenced pop and a cover version of " When You Wish upon a Star " from the Disney film Pinocchio.

The solo albums were released on September 18, Of the four, Frehley's album was the most successful, and spawned the only resulting hit single, a cover of " New York Groove ", written by Russ Ballard and originally performed by Hello.

The second part of Kiss's and Aucoin's plan called for the band to appear in a film that would cement its image of larger-than-life rock-and-roll superheroes.

Filming commenced in the spring of Although the project was proposed to the band as a cross between A Hard Day's Night and Star Wars , the final result fell far short of those expectations.

The script underwent numerous rewrites, and the band particularly Criss and Frehley grew increasingly frustrated with the filmmaking process.

It was released theatrically, after many changes, outside the U. The band members were unhappy with the finished film, and would speak about their filmmaking experience in later interviews with a mix of humorous embarrassment and regret.

They felt that the film portrayed them more as clowns than superheroes. The artistic failure of the film led to a rift between the band and Aucoin.

Kiss' first album of new material in two years, Dynasty , continued the band's platinum streak. Session drummer Anton Fig performed almost all the percussion on the album while Criss recovered from an automobile accident.

The only song to feature Criss's drumming was "Dirty Livin ' ", on which he also sang lead. Billed as "The Return of Kiss", the Dynasty Tour was expected by Kiss and its management to build on the success of previous tours.

Plans were drawn up for a Kiss-themed traveling amusement park called "Kiss World", but were abandoned because of the immense costs involved; [49] however, "The Return of Kiss" saw a marked decline in attendance.

The crowds on this tour were much younger than previous audiences had been, with many preadolescent children in Kiss make-up with their mothers and fathers who were sometimes wearing the make-up themselves in tow at most concerts.

Kiss themselves did little to dissuade this new fan base, donning colorful costumes that reinforced a cartoonish image for these younger fans.

The fans were unaware of the dissension within the band. One very public indication of the heightened friction within the group was an infamous October 31, , interview on Tom Snyder 's late-night The Tomorrow Show.

During the episode, a visibly irritated Simmons and Stanley attempted, unsuccessfully, to contain the inebriated Frehley, whose frequent laughter and joking overshadowed the conversation between Snyder and the rest of the band.

Criss made references to his large gun collection, to the chagrin of Simmons. By the end of the Dynasty tour in December , tensions between Criss and the rest of the band were at an all-time high.

His drumming skills had noticeably eroded, and he even intentionally slowed down—or stopped playing altogether—during some concerts. The final show of the tour December 16, was the last time Criss performed with the group for almost 17 years, although he remained an official member for nearly six more months.

Anton Fig played all the drums on the next album, Unmasked , although he was not credited, while Criss appeared on the cover. Showcasing a slick, contemporary pop sound, Unmasked released May 20, had the dubious distinction of being the first Kiss album since Dressed to Kill to not achieve platinum sales.

Soon after the album's release, Criss' departure was officially announced. The band auditioned dozens of replacements for Criss in June One of the many who auditioned was Tico Torres who would later be with Bon Jovi.

They finally settled on a little-known drummer-guitarist-pianist-keyboardist-singer from Brooklyn named Paul Charles Caravello born July 12, who adopted the stage name Eric Carr.

His first make-up design was modeled on a hawk, though it was rejected as Stanley felt it looked more like a chicken. Carr ultimately settled on a "Fox" persona.

This was Kiss's only U. The band's tour of Australia and New Zealand, on the other hand, was one of the biggest in its history, as they played to sold-out crowds and received overwhelmingly positive press coverage.

For its next album, the band worked again with producer Ezrin, with whom Kiss had found success on Destroyer. Early press reports indicated that the new album would be a return to the hard rock style that had originally brought the band success.

However, 's Music from "The Elder" was a concept album featuring medieval horns, strings, harps , and synthesizers. The album was presented as a soundtrack to a film that was never made, making it difficult to follow the storyline.

To make matters worse, having received negative feedback following its record company's preview of the album, Kiss altered the record's track sequence in most countries to emphasize potential singles "The Oath" and "A World Without Heroes", which all but guaranteed the inability of listeners to understand the already-muddled storyline.

Once released, fan reaction to The Elder was harsh; it failed to achieve Gold status and peaked at No.

The band made only two appearances in support of the new album, both in January One was a performance on the ABC late-night variety program Fridays , while the second was a lip-synced performance that was broadcast via satellite during Italy's Sanremo Music Festival.

Absent from the satellite performance was Frehley, who had become increasingly frustrated with Kiss's new musical direction. Upset with the band's decision to record Music from "The Elder" , he did not actively participate in the album's creation, providing lead vocals for only one track, "Dark Light".

He did not appear at a special concert at Studio 54 in New York City, leaving Kiss to perform as a trio. He recorded his guitar parts at his home studio in Wilton, Connecticut , and mailed them to Ezrin.

Another source of frustration for Frehley was that with the departure of Criss, and with Carr not being an equal partner in the band, he was often outvoted 2-to-1 on group decisions.

In June , Frehley's departure from the band was negotiated, although he did not officially leave until December, and remained a business partner with Simmons and Stanley until Although Frehley had already decided to leave the band, he was pictured on the covers of 's Killers and Creatures of the Night , although he did not participate in the recording of either album.

Creatures of the Night October 13, was Kiss' heaviest album to date, and although it fared better than Music from "The Elder" , it peaked at only No.

In Frehley's absence, Kiss utilized a number of guitarists for the recording of the album, including Vinnie Vincent born Vincent John Cusano on August 6, Frehley's last appearance with the band until the reunion was in the music video for the single " I Love It Loud ", which was co-written by Vincent.

Frehley also appeared on the cover of the original Creatures of the Night album artwork. When the album was remixed and re-released in with a non-make-up cover and a slightly different song order, to reflect the band's roster change and abandonment of its make-up and costumes, Vincent was again absent from the album cover, as then-current lead guitarist, Bruce Kulick , appeared instead.

Vincent officially replaced Frehley as lead guitarist in December , as the band embarked on its 10th Anniversary Tour. Vincent originally wanted to use his birth name in the band, but this was vetoed by Simmons on the grounds that it sounded "too ethnic".

Specifically, according to Simmons, "it sounded like a fruit vendor". Simmons went on to note that "fairly or unfairly, rock and roll is about image".

Simmons later suggested the name change to "Vinnie Vincent". Vincent started actively pushing to join Kiss as a full member. Despite the misgivings that both Simmons and Stanley harbored about his personality, Vincent was taken into the band.

Stanley designed a character, "The Wiz" [75] [76] also known as "The Egyptian Warrior", [77] and make-up centered around an Egyptian ankh , for Vincent.

A persona as "The Ankh Warrior" or similar is not mentioned in the book at all. Vincent's personality did not mesh well with either Stanley or Simmons, and he was dismissed from Kiss at the end of the Creatures tour.

He was quickly reinstated before recording started for Lick It Up because Simmons and Stanley could not find a new lead guitarist on such short notice.

Vincent appeared on the cover of Lick It Up and was credited as the lead guitarist. Personality issues arose once again, and Vincent was fired following the Lick It Up tour, due in part to excessive guitar soloing at a concert in Quebec.

He was replaced by Mark St. John birth name Mark Norton. Vincent's work on Creatures of the Night was not officially recognized until the album was remastered in Before long, Vincent fell out with Simmons and Stanley for a third time, and they again severed their musical ties.

Persistent rumors circulated for years among Kiss fans regarding the true reason for Vincent's dismissals from Kiss, with at least one band member refusing to comment except to say that legally it was not up for discussion.

Simmons stated in an interview several years later that Vincent's firing was for "unethical behavior", but he did not elaborate:.

I named Vincent Cusano, 'Vinnie Vincent'. That's the only gift he's allowed. It's interesting that Vinnie hasn't changed his name back to Vinnie Cusano.

Vinnie, for the record, was fired for unethical behavior, not because of lack of talent. The guy is very talented. He was unethical.

He was fired. Sensing it was time for a change, Kiss made the decision to abandon its trademark make-up and costumes. The band officially appeared in public without make-up for the first time since its very early days on a September 18, , appearance on MTV, which coincided with the release of Lick It Up.

Lick It Up became Kiss' first Gold record in three years, but the tour was even more sparsely attended than the previous one.

Vincent did not get along with Simmons and Stanley, and he left the band at the conclusion of the tour in March Vincent's replacement was Mark St.

John , a session player and guitar tutor. With St. John, Kiss released the album Animalize on September 13, Animalize followed the success of Lick It Up , and due in part to consistent MTV play for the " Heaven's on Fire " video, Animalize was the band's best-selling record in America during the decade, with over two million albums sold.

With the success of the album and subsequent tour, Kiss had recaptured some of its earlier glory though not to the level of its s heyday.

John, however, came down with reactive arthritis during tour rehearsals, and only performed at a handful of shows before being dismissed from the band in December The band hired Bruce Kulick to replace St.

Kulick had previously filled in for St. John during the first two months of the Animalize tour. Kulick was Kiss' fourth lead guitarist in less than three years, but he stayed with the band for 12 years.

One of the first concerts Kulick played as an official member of the band was at Detroit, Michigan's Cobo Hall.

This was later released as the band's first home video, Animalize Live Uncensored. Crazy Nights , in particular, was one of Kiss' most successful albums overseas.

The single " Crazy Crazy Nights " reached No. Kiss ended the decade with the October release Hot in the Shade. Although the album failed to achieve platinum status, it spawned the hit ballad " Forever ", co-written by Michael Bolton.

Peaking at No. During this time, Kiss struggled with its identity and fan base. Simmons, arguably the driving force in Kiss during the s, became less involved with the group in the s as he pursued outside interests, most notably a film career.

Stanley took a more prominent role as a result. In February , the band decided to once again enlist Ezrin to produce its next album.

Before recording could begin in earnest, however, tragedy struck. In March , it was discovered that Carr had a tumor on his heart. It was successfully removed the following month, but more tumors were soon discovered in his lungs.

Carr received chemotherapy and was pronounced cancer-free in July. However, in September he suffered the first of two cerebral hemorrhages.

He died on November 24, , at the age of Singer had played with Paul Stanley previously, as part of Stanley's backing band during a solo tour.

Kiss released Revenge on May 19, It featured a leaner, harder-edged sound, as indicated by the first single, " Unholy ". In a surprise move, Kiss enlisted Vincent to help with songwriting duties.

The album debuted in the Top 10 and went Gold. Kiss embarked on a brief club tour of the U. Four days later, Kiss were inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk.

During this period, Kiss nostalgia started to pick up steam. June saw the release of Kiss My Ass: Classic Kiss Regrooved , a compilation album featuring popular artists of the era putting their own spin on Kiss songs.

In , the group released the book Kisstory , a page, 9 pounds 4. That same year, the band embarked on a unique and well-received Worldwide Kiss Convention Tour.

The conventions were all-day events, featuring displays of vintage Kiss stage outfits, instruments and memorabilia; performances by Kiss cover bands; and dealers selling Kiss merchandise from every stage of the band's career.

Kiss appeared live at the conventions, conducted question and answer sessions, signed autographs, and performed a two-hour acoustic set composed mostly of spontaneous fan requests.

On the first U. It was the first time Criss had performed publicly with the band in nearly 16 years. The band contacted Criss and Frehley and invited them to participate in the event.

In the weeks following the Unplugged concert, however, the band with Kulick and Singer , returned to the studio for the first time in three years to record a follow-up to Revenge.

Carnival of Souls: The Final Sessions was completed in February , but its release was delayed for almost two years.

Bootleg copies of the album circulated widely among fans. These efforts culminated with a public event as dramatic as any the band had staged since its unmasking on MTV.

With the following statements, Tupac Shakur introduced the original Kiss lineup, in full makeup and Love Gun -era stage outfits, to a rousing ovation at the 38th Annual Grammy Awards : [92].

You know how the Grammys used to be, all straight-looking folks with suits. Everybody looking tired. No surprises. We tired of that. We need something different, something new, we need to shock the people On April 20, nearly 40, tickets for the tour's first show sold out in 47 minutes.

The first public concert featuring the newly reunited Kiss was an hour-long warm-up show on June 15 for the annual KROQ Weenie Roast in Irvine, California , during which the band nearly ignited the stage of the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater.

There were many many nights when I was looking around the stage and going "This is magic. What was important about these shows is we had a much bigger task than people understood.

Our biggest competition was our history. We didn't have to be as good as we used to be. We had to be as good as people thought we were. The show wasn't to be a replica of what we've done, it was to be what people imagined we had done.

We had to be totally committed. In terms of the stage show for the reunion tour, what we wanted to do was look at the '77 show in a sense as a pinnacle.

That is what we chose to build on but not copy. There are also elements from other shows too in the sense that there's bombs and the flying rig and the breaking of the guitars.

At that time, it was the ultimate Kiss show in the sense that we looked at the show, which we thought was our best and said, "Top this.

In September , the reunited group issued Psycho Circus. Although it was the first album with the original lineup since 's Dynasty , the contributions of Frehley and Criss were minimal.

While the images of Frehley and Criss are featured prominently on the album, most of the lead guitar work was later revealed to have been performed by future band member Tommy Thayer.

Former member Kulick made an appearance on the intro of the song "Within". Most drum duties were handled by session musician Kevin Valentine.

Despite the controversy, the album achieved a No. It proved to be another success, and was historic for being the first to ever incorporate 3D visuals into a stage show.

The film takes place in , and focuses on four teenagers willing to do anything to score tickets for a sold-out Kiss show in Detroit.

The next month, the group worked in collaboration with World Championship Wrestling to produce a Kiss-themed wrestler known as The Demon , whose face was painted to resemble Simmons' makeup.

The character was short-lived, and all ties to Kiss were cut by WCW when its head, Eric Bischoff , was relieved of his duties in September of that year.

Kiss launched a U. Farewell Tour in March The Reunion tour made us the number one band again. We played to about two million people in one year.

Then we did the Psycho Circus tour and after that we thought, "been there, done it. On the eve of the Japanese and Australian leg of the Farewell Tour on January 31, , Criss suddenly left the band once again, because he and the band could not come to agreement with his contract salary.

Taking his place was previous Kiss drummer Singer who, in a move that was controversial among longtime fans, assumed Criss' Cat persona as the Farewell Tour continued.

In introducing the Kiss Kasket, Simmons quipped, "I love livin', but this makes the alternative look pretty damn good. NARAS has 12 chapters throughout the United States, hence 12 ceremonies throughout the year, with the honorees each being honored by the chapter closest to their residence.

Kiss was relatively quiet through the rest of the year, but started with some controversy as Simmons took part in a controversial interview on National Public Radio with host Terry Gross.

This was Frehley's final performance as a member of Kiss. On March 6, , Kiss performed a private concert at a resort in Trelawny , Jamaica.

Frehley, who was no longer under contract, did not perform with the group. He was replaced by Thayer, who donned Frehley's Spaceman makeup and costume for his first live appearance with Kiss.

Thayer again performed with the group in April , when Kiss performed "Detroit Rock City" with pre-recorded music and live vocals for an appearance on Dick Clark's American Bandstand 50th Anniversary show, which aired on May 3.

Thayer once again replaced Frehley, while Criss returned to the group. Despite claims made prior to the Farewell Tour that it would be the group's last, Kiss toured with Aerosmith in Frehley announced that his departure from the band was permanent, stating that he believed the Farewell Tour would be Kiss' last, [] and that he did not want to open for Aerosmith.

This package included a seat in the first five rows, a meet-and-greet with Kiss after their performance and a photograph with the band.

Simmons and Stanley did not renew Criss' contract when it expired in March Criss, on his website, stated that "No one, again, no one has called me, or my attorney about an extension for future touring.

As a founding member I find this to be disrespectful to me, and to the fans that have made us one of the biggest bands in the world.

The tour ended in August with a sold-out show in Mexico City. Selected dates on the tour were filmed for the Rock the Nation Live! He has already had two hip surgeries performed, with more likely in the future.

After the conclusion of the Rock the Nation Tour, Kiss performed only sporadically for a number of years. The group played two shows in , and another six in Four of the shows were July concerts in Japan, including two dates July 22 and 23 as a headlining act at the Udo Music Festival.

Prior to the final show on July 27, Stanley was hospitalized with an extremely rapid heartbeat. In his absence, Kiss performed in concert as a trio for the first time since This was the first Kiss concert that Stanley had missed during his then year tenure with the group.

Stanley released his second solo album, Live to Win , on October 24, , and undertook a brief solo tour in support. On October 31 the same year, the group released Kissology Volume One: — , the first of 10 possible DVD sets featuring complete concert footage, interviews and never-before-seen clips.

In April , former guitarist St. John died from an apparent cerebral hemorrhage at age John formed the short-lived glam metal group White Tiger.

In , he briefly collaborated with Criss in a band called the Keep, which only performed once and released no recordings.

John largely dropped out of public view in later years, but did make occasional appearances at Kiss fan conventions.

Though Kiss had been eligible for enshrinement in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since , they were not nominated until and were not inducted until While this snub displeased some fans, Stanley and Simmons maintained that it was meaningless to them.

Nevertheless, a group of about Kiss fans held a protest rally in front of the Hall of Fame in Cleveland on August 5, It was the first known organized demonstration seeking the induction of a band into the Hall.

In , a new comic book series featuring the band was released by the Kiss Comics Group in association with Platinum Studios.

Titled Kiss 4K: Legends Never Die , the first issue was published in both a regular size and a giant 1. The band picked up their pace in , embarking on their first proper tour of Europe in nearly a decade.

Throughout the summer of , Kiss headlined festivals as well as their own shows and played to a record audience of about , people. More than 10 years after their last studio album, and following years of denials about ever wanting to do a new album, Stanley and Simmons changed their minds.

In November , Stanley stated to rock photographer Ross Halfin that a new Kiss album was in the works. Stanley himself would be the producer, and the album would have a "real 70s Kiss sound" to it.

Later that month, Simmons and Stanley both publicly confirmed the information about a new Kiss album:. We have 4 tunes recorded.

If you're a fan of our stuff from about , you'll feel right at home. Nothing to prove to anyone. Just doing what comes naturally.

Ignoring fashions, trends and with a personal vow from all of us: no rapping. There are plenty of people out there doing this and they don't need four palefaced guys pretending they're from the hood.

Besides, I'm not sure how to correctly pronounce 'wassup. Or maybe later! In October , a new studio album, titled Sonic Boom , was released.

The song was Kiss' first single release in 11 years, since 's " You Wanted the Best ". The song gained positive feedback from both critics and fans, and was compared to the band's s work.

Sonic Boom debuted at No. These were the band's final performances there, as the venue was later closed as part of the renovation of the Cobo Center.

The truss had to be lowered in order to have the fire put out. During the five or so minutes it took to extinguish the fire, the band broke into the song "Firehouse".

No one was hurt and the show continued. Tragedy struck Kiss for a third time when former manager Aucoin died of cancer on June 28, , at the age of Stanley and Simmons said he was like the fifth member of Kiss.

The tour included their first UK arena shows in 11 years and their first visit to Slovakia. The tour saw the band play numerous shows throughout the US, Canada and Mexico.

Japanese Kiss Video

Kakafukaka (2019) Kiss Scene + Sweet Moments Compilation カカフカカ Japanese kiss

They felt that the film portrayed them more as clowns than superheroes. The artistic failure of the film led to a rift between the band and Aucoin.

Kiss' first album of new material in two years, Dynasty , continued the band's platinum streak. Session drummer Anton Fig performed almost all the percussion on the album while Criss recovered from an automobile accident.

The only song to feature Criss's drumming was "Dirty Livin ' ", on which he also sang lead. Billed as "The Return of Kiss", the Dynasty Tour was expected by Kiss and its management to build on the success of previous tours.

Plans were drawn up for a Kiss-themed traveling amusement park called "Kiss World", but were abandoned because of the immense costs involved; [49] however, "The Return of Kiss" saw a marked decline in attendance.

The crowds on this tour were much younger than previous audiences had been, with many preadolescent children in Kiss make-up with their mothers and fathers who were sometimes wearing the make-up themselves in tow at most concerts.

Kiss themselves did little to dissuade this new fan base, donning colorful costumes that reinforced a cartoonish image for these younger fans.

The fans were unaware of the dissension within the band. One very public indication of the heightened friction within the group was an infamous October 31, , interview on Tom Snyder 's late-night The Tomorrow Show.

During the episode, a visibly irritated Simmons and Stanley attempted, unsuccessfully, to contain the inebriated Frehley, whose frequent laughter and joking overshadowed the conversation between Snyder and the rest of the band.

Criss made references to his large gun collection, to the chagrin of Simmons. By the end of the Dynasty tour in December , tensions between Criss and the rest of the band were at an all-time high.

His drumming skills had noticeably eroded, and he even intentionally slowed down—or stopped playing altogether—during some concerts. The final show of the tour December 16, was the last time Criss performed with the group for almost 17 years, although he remained an official member for nearly six more months.

Anton Fig played all the drums on the next album, Unmasked , although he was not credited, while Criss appeared on the cover.

Showcasing a slick, contemporary pop sound, Unmasked released May 20, had the dubious distinction of being the first Kiss album since Dressed to Kill to not achieve platinum sales.

Soon after the album's release, Criss' departure was officially announced. The band auditioned dozens of replacements for Criss in June One of the many who auditioned was Tico Torres who would later be with Bon Jovi.

They finally settled on a little-known drummer-guitarist-pianist-keyboardist-singer from Brooklyn named Paul Charles Caravello born July 12, who adopted the stage name Eric Carr.

His first make-up design was modeled on a hawk, though it was rejected as Stanley felt it looked more like a chicken.

Carr ultimately settled on a "Fox" persona. This was Kiss's only U. The band's tour of Australia and New Zealand, on the other hand, was one of the biggest in its history, as they played to sold-out crowds and received overwhelmingly positive press coverage.

For its next album, the band worked again with producer Ezrin, with whom Kiss had found success on Destroyer. Early press reports indicated that the new album would be a return to the hard rock style that had originally brought the band success.

However, 's Music from "The Elder" was a concept album featuring medieval horns, strings, harps , and synthesizers. The album was presented as a soundtrack to a film that was never made, making it difficult to follow the storyline.

To make matters worse, having received negative feedback following its record company's preview of the album, Kiss altered the record's track sequence in most countries to emphasize potential singles "The Oath" and "A World Without Heroes", which all but guaranteed the inability of listeners to understand the already-muddled storyline.

Once released, fan reaction to The Elder was harsh; it failed to achieve Gold status and peaked at No. The band made only two appearances in support of the new album, both in January One was a performance on the ABC late-night variety program Fridays , while the second was a lip-synced performance that was broadcast via satellite during Italy's Sanremo Music Festival.

Absent from the satellite performance was Frehley, who had become increasingly frustrated with Kiss's new musical direction.

Upset with the band's decision to record Music from "The Elder" , he did not actively participate in the album's creation, providing lead vocals for only one track, "Dark Light".

He did not appear at a special concert at Studio 54 in New York City, leaving Kiss to perform as a trio. He recorded his guitar parts at his home studio in Wilton, Connecticut , and mailed them to Ezrin.

Another source of frustration for Frehley was that with the departure of Criss, and with Carr not being an equal partner in the band, he was often outvoted 2-to-1 on group decisions.

In June , Frehley's departure from the band was negotiated, although he did not officially leave until December, and remained a business partner with Simmons and Stanley until Although Frehley had already decided to leave the band, he was pictured on the covers of 's Killers and Creatures of the Night , although he did not participate in the recording of either album.

Creatures of the Night October 13, was Kiss' heaviest album to date, and although it fared better than Music from "The Elder" , it peaked at only No.

In Frehley's absence, Kiss utilized a number of guitarists for the recording of the album, including Vinnie Vincent born Vincent John Cusano on August 6, Frehley's last appearance with the band until the reunion was in the music video for the single " I Love It Loud ", which was co-written by Vincent.

Frehley also appeared on the cover of the original Creatures of the Night album artwork. When the album was remixed and re-released in with a non-make-up cover and a slightly different song order, to reflect the band's roster change and abandonment of its make-up and costumes, Vincent was again absent from the album cover, as then-current lead guitarist, Bruce Kulick , appeared instead.

Vincent officially replaced Frehley as lead guitarist in December , as the band embarked on its 10th Anniversary Tour. Vincent originally wanted to use his birth name in the band, but this was vetoed by Simmons on the grounds that it sounded "too ethnic".

Specifically, according to Simmons, "it sounded like a fruit vendor". Simmons went on to note that "fairly or unfairly, rock and roll is about image".

Simmons later suggested the name change to "Vinnie Vincent". Vincent started actively pushing to join Kiss as a full member.

Despite the misgivings that both Simmons and Stanley harbored about his personality, Vincent was taken into the band.

Stanley designed a character, "The Wiz" [75] [76] also known as "The Egyptian Warrior", [77] and make-up centered around an Egyptian ankh , for Vincent.

A persona as "The Ankh Warrior" or similar is not mentioned in the book at all. Vincent's personality did not mesh well with either Stanley or Simmons, and he was dismissed from Kiss at the end of the Creatures tour.

He was quickly reinstated before recording started for Lick It Up because Simmons and Stanley could not find a new lead guitarist on such short notice.

Vincent appeared on the cover of Lick It Up and was credited as the lead guitarist. Personality issues arose once again, and Vincent was fired following the Lick It Up tour, due in part to excessive guitar soloing at a concert in Quebec.

He was replaced by Mark St. John birth name Mark Norton. Vincent's work on Creatures of the Night was not officially recognized until the album was remastered in Before long, Vincent fell out with Simmons and Stanley for a third time, and they again severed their musical ties.

Persistent rumors circulated for years among Kiss fans regarding the true reason for Vincent's dismissals from Kiss, with at least one band member refusing to comment except to say that legally it was not up for discussion.

Simmons stated in an interview several years later that Vincent's firing was for "unethical behavior", but he did not elaborate:.

I named Vincent Cusano, 'Vinnie Vincent'. That's the only gift he's allowed. It's interesting that Vinnie hasn't changed his name back to Vinnie Cusano.

Vinnie, for the record, was fired for unethical behavior, not because of lack of talent. The guy is very talented. He was unethical. He was fired.

Sensing it was time for a change, Kiss made the decision to abandon its trademark make-up and costumes.

The band officially appeared in public without make-up for the first time since its very early days on a September 18, , appearance on MTV, which coincided with the release of Lick It Up.

Lick It Up became Kiss' first Gold record in three years, but the tour was even more sparsely attended than the previous one.

Vincent did not get along with Simmons and Stanley, and he left the band at the conclusion of the tour in March Vincent's replacement was Mark St.

John , a session player and guitar tutor. With St. John, Kiss released the album Animalize on September 13, Animalize followed the success of Lick It Up , and due in part to consistent MTV play for the " Heaven's on Fire " video, Animalize was the band's best-selling record in America during the decade, with over two million albums sold.

With the success of the album and subsequent tour, Kiss had recaptured some of its earlier glory though not to the level of its s heyday. John, however, came down with reactive arthritis during tour rehearsals, and only performed at a handful of shows before being dismissed from the band in December The band hired Bruce Kulick to replace St.

Kulick had previously filled in for St. John during the first two months of the Animalize tour. Kulick was Kiss' fourth lead guitarist in less than three years, but he stayed with the band for 12 years.

One of the first concerts Kulick played as an official member of the band was at Detroit, Michigan's Cobo Hall. This was later released as the band's first home video, Animalize Live Uncensored.

Crazy Nights , in particular, was one of Kiss' most successful albums overseas. The single " Crazy Crazy Nights " reached No.

Kiss ended the decade with the October release Hot in the Shade. Although the album failed to achieve platinum status, it spawned the hit ballad " Forever ", co-written by Michael Bolton.

Peaking at No. During this time, Kiss struggled with its identity and fan base. Simmons, arguably the driving force in Kiss during the s, became less involved with the group in the s as he pursued outside interests, most notably a film career.

Stanley took a more prominent role as a result. In February , the band decided to once again enlist Ezrin to produce its next album.

Before recording could begin in earnest, however, tragedy struck. In March , it was discovered that Carr had a tumor on his heart.

It was successfully removed the following month, but more tumors were soon discovered in his lungs. Carr received chemotherapy and was pronounced cancer-free in July.

However, in September he suffered the first of two cerebral hemorrhages. He died on November 24, , at the age of Singer had played with Paul Stanley previously, as part of Stanley's backing band during a solo tour.

Kiss released Revenge on May 19, It featured a leaner, harder-edged sound, as indicated by the first single, " Unholy ". In a surprise move, Kiss enlisted Vincent to help with songwriting duties.

The album debuted in the Top 10 and went Gold. Kiss embarked on a brief club tour of the U. Four days later, Kiss were inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk.

During this period, Kiss nostalgia started to pick up steam. June saw the release of Kiss My Ass: Classic Kiss Regrooved , a compilation album featuring popular artists of the era putting their own spin on Kiss songs.

In , the group released the book Kisstory , a page, 9 pounds 4. That same year, the band embarked on a unique and well-received Worldwide Kiss Convention Tour.

The conventions were all-day events, featuring displays of vintage Kiss stage outfits, instruments and memorabilia; performances by Kiss cover bands; and dealers selling Kiss merchandise from every stage of the band's career.

Kiss appeared live at the conventions, conducted question and answer sessions, signed autographs, and performed a two-hour acoustic set composed mostly of spontaneous fan requests.

On the first U. It was the first time Criss had performed publicly with the band in nearly 16 years. The band contacted Criss and Frehley and invited them to participate in the event.

In the weeks following the Unplugged concert, however, the band with Kulick and Singer , returned to the studio for the first time in three years to record a follow-up to Revenge.

Carnival of Souls: The Final Sessions was completed in February , but its release was delayed for almost two years. Bootleg copies of the album circulated widely among fans.

These efforts culminated with a public event as dramatic as any the band had staged since its unmasking on MTV.

With the following statements, Tupac Shakur introduced the original Kiss lineup, in full makeup and Love Gun -era stage outfits, to a rousing ovation at the 38th Annual Grammy Awards : [92].

You know how the Grammys used to be, all straight-looking folks with suits. Everybody looking tired.

No surprises. We tired of that. We need something different, something new, we need to shock the people On April 20, nearly 40, tickets for the tour's first show sold out in 47 minutes.

The first public concert featuring the newly reunited Kiss was an hour-long warm-up show on June 15 for the annual KROQ Weenie Roast in Irvine, California , during which the band nearly ignited the stage of the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater.

There were many many nights when I was looking around the stage and going "This is magic. What was important about these shows is we had a much bigger task than people understood.

Our biggest competition was our history. We didn't have to be as good as we used to be. We had to be as good as people thought we were. The show wasn't to be a replica of what we've done, it was to be what people imagined we had done.

We had to be totally committed. In terms of the stage show for the reunion tour, what we wanted to do was look at the '77 show in a sense as a pinnacle.

That is what we chose to build on but not copy. There are also elements from other shows too in the sense that there's bombs and the flying rig and the breaking of the guitars.

At that time, it was the ultimate Kiss show in the sense that we looked at the show, which we thought was our best and said, "Top this.

In September , the reunited group issued Psycho Circus. Although it was the first album with the original lineup since 's Dynasty , the contributions of Frehley and Criss were minimal.

While the images of Frehley and Criss are featured prominently on the album, most of the lead guitar work was later revealed to have been performed by future band member Tommy Thayer.

Former member Kulick made an appearance on the intro of the song "Within". Most drum duties were handled by session musician Kevin Valentine.

Despite the controversy, the album achieved a No. It proved to be another success, and was historic for being the first to ever incorporate 3D visuals into a stage show.

The film takes place in , and focuses on four teenagers willing to do anything to score tickets for a sold-out Kiss show in Detroit.

The next month, the group worked in collaboration with World Championship Wrestling to produce a Kiss-themed wrestler known as The Demon , whose face was painted to resemble Simmons' makeup.

The character was short-lived, and all ties to Kiss were cut by WCW when its head, Eric Bischoff , was relieved of his duties in September of that year.

Kiss launched a U. Farewell Tour in March The Reunion tour made us the number one band again. We played to about two million people in one year.

Then we did the Psycho Circus tour and after that we thought, "been there, done it. On the eve of the Japanese and Australian leg of the Farewell Tour on January 31, , Criss suddenly left the band once again, because he and the band could not come to agreement with his contract salary.

Taking his place was previous Kiss drummer Singer who, in a move that was controversial among longtime fans, assumed Criss' Cat persona as the Farewell Tour continued.

In introducing the Kiss Kasket, Simmons quipped, "I love livin', but this makes the alternative look pretty damn good. NARAS has 12 chapters throughout the United States, hence 12 ceremonies throughout the year, with the honorees each being honored by the chapter closest to their residence.

Kiss was relatively quiet through the rest of the year, but started with some controversy as Simmons took part in a controversial interview on National Public Radio with host Terry Gross.

This was Frehley's final performance as a member of Kiss. On March 6, , Kiss performed a private concert at a resort in Trelawny , Jamaica.

Frehley, who was no longer under contract, did not perform with the group. He was replaced by Thayer, who donned Frehley's Spaceman makeup and costume for his first live appearance with Kiss.

Thayer again performed with the group in April , when Kiss performed "Detroit Rock City" with pre-recorded music and live vocals for an appearance on Dick Clark's American Bandstand 50th Anniversary show, which aired on May 3.

Thayer once again replaced Frehley, while Criss returned to the group. Despite claims made prior to the Farewell Tour that it would be the group's last, Kiss toured with Aerosmith in Frehley announced that his departure from the band was permanent, stating that he believed the Farewell Tour would be Kiss' last, [] and that he did not want to open for Aerosmith.

This package included a seat in the first five rows, a meet-and-greet with Kiss after their performance and a photograph with the band.

Simmons and Stanley did not renew Criss' contract when it expired in March Criss, on his website, stated that "No one, again, no one has called me, or my attorney about an extension for future touring.

As a founding member I find this to be disrespectful to me, and to the fans that have made us one of the biggest bands in the world. The tour ended in August with a sold-out show in Mexico City.

Selected dates on the tour were filmed for the Rock the Nation Live! He has already had two hip surgeries performed, with more likely in the future.

After the conclusion of the Rock the Nation Tour, Kiss performed only sporadically for a number of years. The group played two shows in , and another six in Four of the shows were July concerts in Japan, including two dates July 22 and 23 as a headlining act at the Udo Music Festival.

Prior to the final show on July 27, Stanley was hospitalized with an extremely rapid heartbeat. In his absence, Kiss performed in concert as a trio for the first time since This was the first Kiss concert that Stanley had missed during his then year tenure with the group.

Stanley released his second solo album, Live to Win , on October 24, , and undertook a brief solo tour in support. On October 31 the same year, the group released Kissology Volume One: — , the first of 10 possible DVD sets featuring complete concert footage, interviews and never-before-seen clips.

In April , former guitarist St. John died from an apparent cerebral hemorrhage at age John formed the short-lived glam metal group White Tiger.

In , he briefly collaborated with Criss in a band called the Keep, which only performed once and released no recordings.

John largely dropped out of public view in later years, but did make occasional appearances at Kiss fan conventions. Though Kiss had been eligible for enshrinement in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since , they were not nominated until and were not inducted until While this snub displeased some fans, Stanley and Simmons maintained that it was meaningless to them.

Nevertheless, a group of about Kiss fans held a protest rally in front of the Hall of Fame in Cleveland on August 5, It was the first known organized demonstration seeking the induction of a band into the Hall.

In , a new comic book series featuring the band was released by the Kiss Comics Group in association with Platinum Studios.

Titled Kiss 4K: Legends Never Die , the first issue was published in both a regular size and a giant 1. The band picked up their pace in , embarking on their first proper tour of Europe in nearly a decade.

Throughout the summer of , Kiss headlined festivals as well as their own shows and played to a record audience of about , people.

More than 10 years after their last studio album, and following years of denials about ever wanting to do a new album, Stanley and Simmons changed their minds.

In November , Stanley stated to rock photographer Ross Halfin that a new Kiss album was in the works. Stanley himself would be the producer, and the album would have a "real 70s Kiss sound" to it.

Later that month, Simmons and Stanley both publicly confirmed the information about a new Kiss album:. We have 4 tunes recorded.

If you're a fan of our stuff from about , you'll feel right at home. Nothing to prove to anyone. Just doing what comes naturally.

Ignoring fashions, trends and with a personal vow from all of us: no rapping. There are plenty of people out there doing this and they don't need four palefaced guys pretending they're from the hood.

Besides, I'm not sure how to correctly pronounce 'wassup. Or maybe later! In October , a new studio album, titled Sonic Boom , was released.

The song was Kiss' first single release in 11 years, since 's " You Wanted the Best ". The song gained positive feedback from both critics and fans, and was compared to the band's s work.

Sonic Boom debuted at No. These were the band's final performances there, as the venue was later closed as part of the renovation of the Cobo Center.

The truss had to be lowered in order to have the fire put out. During the five or so minutes it took to extinguish the fire, the band broke into the song "Firehouse".

No one was hurt and the show continued. Tragedy struck Kiss for a third time when former manager Aucoin died of cancer on June 28, , at the age of Stanley and Simmons said he was like the fifth member of Kiss.

The tour included their first UK arena shows in 11 years and their first visit to Slovakia. The tour saw the band play numerous shows throughout the US, Canada and Mexico.

On April 13, , Kiss began recording a new album due for release later in the year. Simmons said: "Technology is a seductive bitch, she will seduce you.

You press this button, you don't have to do anything. But analog is the love of your life. You can push real hard and it always gives back. For the new album, the actual recording process was track tape and an old Trident board.

And as many tubes as possible. You need tubes, electricity and thick wood to make that thick sound. Kiss spent the summer of playing venues in the US and Canada, visiting cities they had not played in some time; it was dubbed the "Lost Cities Tour".

Their next album Monster was released in October The facility is an hole indoor miniature golf course, featuring arcade games, a gift shop, and numerous pieces of band memorabilia on display.

The complete current version of the band attended the grand opening. Kiss appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

A press conference was held on the same day to announce a summer North American tour called The Tour , co-headlined by Mötley Crüe.

The Tour started on July 20 and ended on October 1. Monster was released on October 9, , in North America to critical and fan acclaim, debuting in the Top 3 in the US and Top 10 in many countries.

On October 16, , Kiss was again announced as a nominee for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame , [] and was subsequently announced as an inductee on December In , Kiss purchased a share of an Arena Football League expansion franchise set to begin play at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California , in In , Kiss toured as co-headliners with Def Leppard.

After Simmons toured with Joe Elliott in South America, the two talked about their bands working together.

From June 23 to August 31, , the bands toured 42 cities, with a dollar per ticket donated to such military charities as Wounded Warrior Project.

For the first time in the band's year history, Kiss was featured on the cover of the April 10, Issue edition of Rolling Stone magazine.

Though the rockers did not perform, the original four members showed up at the 29th annual induction ceremony in Brooklyn to accept the honor.

It was the first time Kiss had issued a collaboration record with another artist. Before the collaboration, the members of Kiss had watched concert videos of Momoiro Clover Z.

Stanley later commented during an interview:. Spectacular show! Great choreography! Music like we never heard before.

We said, "this is something we can do! Music power rocks the world. On September 15, , the RIAA announced that the band had earned more Gold records than any other American band in the association's year history, with a total of 30 Gold album awards including the band's four solo albums.

What an extraordinary achievement for an enduring band. Forty years later and the band is still rocking. In , Kiss conducted a summer tour, titled the Freedom to Rock Tour , of less frequented cities and smaller venues.

The tour ran throughout the summer, with opening acts Caleb Johnson and the Dead Daisies. There had been conflicting stories regarding whether Kiss would record another album.

Simmons had said "yes" in interviews, saying that he had songs written and lined up for a new album. Stanley and Thayer disputed this, however, and said that they did not vow to make one and that the band could move forward without new music.

Simmons and Stanley made cameo appearances in the film Why Him? This is gonna be our last tour. It will be the most explosive, biggest show we've ever done.

People who love us, come see us. If you've never seen us, this is the time. This will be the show. This was the first time Frehley and the band had performed together since for the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics , and Kulick's first time performing with the band live since his departure in The band's final tour kicked off on January 31 in Vancouver , British Columbia, Canada; it currently features additional dates that run through October 3, , in Fort Worth , United States.

During the first leg of the End of the Road World Tour, Kiss was accused by fans of lip syncing and using backing tracks. Former Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach defended Kiss, saying that the band did not lip-sync at the show he attended.

On November 14, , the band announced that its Australia and New Zealand shows on its final tour had been cancelled due to Stanley's health issues, and stated: "Doctor's orders ultimately have taken precedence and finally we now find ourselves with no choice but to surrender".

While on the Kiss Kruise in November , Kiss had announced that it would be performing the last show of its final tour on July 17, , in New York City.

I don't really know. We've got about another year and a half to go on this tour. I'm sure most people here know we're on the End of the Road World Tour right now.

This tour started about a year ago, and we've got about a year and a half to go. The last show's gonna be July 17, in New York City. So I don't really know exactly what my plans are at the end of this.

Kiss is not gonna go away, though, either. The band is not gonna tour, but the Kiss music, the identities and the characters and the brand and the merchandise, that will all continue on.

I think that Kiss will continue on in some way. I can't imagine it not. With the current events of the ongoing COVID pandemic , the band has temporarily ceased its final tour, with Simmons commenting that the tour would continue once scientists had confirmed that it is safe to resume.

Kiss has typically been classified under the genres of hard rock , [] shock rock , and heavy metal. In , starting with Lick It Up and the removal of its trademark make-up, the band began incorporating elements of glam metal into its sound and visual image.

Its music is described as "a commercially potent mix of anthemic, fist-pounding hard rock, driven by sleek hooks and ballads powered by loud guitars, cloying melodies, and sweeping strings.

It was a sound that laid the groundwork for both arena rock and the pop-metal that dominated rock in the late s. Kiss was strongly influenced by Alice Cooper and the New York Dolls , [] while Gene Simmons has stated that the band's "musical heart and soul lies in England".

The world of concert touring was changed by Kiss's practice of erecting uniquely designed stage sets. Tours got larger, carrying more personnel and equipment, including sets, costumes, sound and lighting gear, and pyrotechnics, all requiring more trucking and the total cost increasing by millions of dollars.

Kiss also innovated with a significant expansion of concert merchandising, selling non-musical Kiss-branded goods to concertgoers.

The sales of merchandise helped pay for the concert expenses and bring a profit to the band as well as give them more of a presence without relying solely on radio.

Other bands copied Kiss by selling their own branded goods at concerts, a practice which became more of a necessity in the s with increasing costs of touring.

The band is famous for its iconic makeup designs, each of which represents a different character or persona.

The current lineup consists of the original four designs: the "Starchild", the "Demon", the "Spaceman" and the "Catman". The band formerly included a practice of giving any new members a new persona, such as "The Fox" for Carr and "The Ankh Warrior" for Vincent; this practice was ended after Singer and Thayer took up Frehley's "Spaceman" and Criss's "Catman" personas.

When asked on the matter, Simmons stated "Why wouldn't we use the classic makeup? We own it". Criss relinquished his rights to his makeup when he left the band in , which he later regretted, saying "I'm pissed at myself that my makeup slipped through my hands"; while Frehley claims he licensed his design to the band and would get it back, a notion which Stanley has called "a fantasy".

During —74, Stanley occasionally used an alternative makeup design called the "Bandit" for select photo-shoots and live shows after Neil Bogart , head of Casablanca Records, suggested to him that he use a design that was symmetrical like those of the rest of the band.

During this time, he was also still using the Starchild makeup—sometimes even using both designs at the same photo-shoots.

In , he stopped using the Bandit design permanently. On the cover of the band's debut album, Criss used a drastically different variation of his Catman makeup dubbed the "Pantomime Cat" after he allowed the makeup artist at the shoot to use their own ideas instead of following the usual design.

Carr was originally going to be the "Hawk", a design which Simmons recalled in his autobiography looked like Big Bird from Sesame Street. One photo of Carr wearing this proposed design exists today, and also one of a mannequin Stanley set up wearing the proposed makeup and outfit.

Unlike the Bandit and Pantomime Cat, this alternative design was never used in any official capacity. The Hawk design was also considered for Vincent and Singer.

John and Kulick were members of Kiss only during the non-makeup period. Kulick stated that had he ever worn makeup in the band, he would have liked to have been the "Dog": "I figure that since there's already a cat in the band, I should probably be the dog.

I'd have a big circle around one eye and I'd look like Petey from the Little Rascals. I've actually seen one or two fan renditions of what that might look like, so yeah, I'd be the dog.
