KiSS...one class act
 
Not everyone is falling for the NFL's bs. I didn't realize KISS was doing good things for vets.

S-a-tur-day NIGHT! S-a-tur-day NIGHT!

Oh, wait...that's the Bay City Rollers.

That's a nice gesture by KISS, although I can't even remember one of their songs at this point.

Gsniper 1 October 2017 18:06

Never was a big KISS fan, but good on them doing good things. I'm sure most of their fellow musicians are appalled and disgusted.

Go to the corner and choke yourself for even knowing that.

It's scary, I know. I remember that song from a TV show they had for a season in the 70s, and it's one of those lyrical brain worms that stuck.

Now that I mentioned it, I'll be plagued with it for 24 hours, like a bad case of tinnitus.

Sure. You do know we don't believe you, and you probably have the 8-track tape copied to a CD. :eek:

First concert I ever saw, Landover Maryland 1976. Still a fan after all these years, even more so now.

Spinner 1 October 2017 18:37

I'm going to start playing it every Saturday Night now, just to keep BCRs memory alive. :biggrin:

If it wasn't for all the music from the 60s, the 70s would have sucked.

Gsniper 1 October 2017 18:39

I kind of liked their MTV unplugged album. Like that they're doing good things and have managed to not implode like most successful rock bands.

+1.

Gene and Paul were at their best with Peter and Ace, though... ;)

Aging myself here. I was a big KISS fan in the 70’s. Good on them for supporting the troops. Concerts, posters and had all the old 8 tracks. Yes, 8 tracks. Young dudes may need to Google it. They were in cases in the trunk of my beat up car. Realized later in life the brilliant marketing of KISS and less than mediocre musical talent though.
Spinner,
I am not looking for a debate here but, I would like to know your thinking on your post about if it weren’t for the music of the 60’s the 70’s music would have sucked. Not sure I quite see the influence being that strong if we are speaking about the rock genre. I have always understood the influence to be more of a Blues influence on what is now classic rock of the 70’s. Again no debate thrown out there. Just curious. If this is a derail, we can go to pm if necessary.

Ditto. 1976 Rock n Rollover Tour in Macon, GA.

Are we old yet?
I think not. :biggrin:

Gsniper 1 October 2017 19:03

We're not old, just think of it in this context, come Jan 1 they'll be enlisting dudes born in 2001.

It depends. Did you wear a Pickel suit with colored unit patches?

I still remember the lights going black and that booming voice, "You wanted the best you got the best." Every guy I knew dressed like someone from KISS that year for Halloween. Of course we were like 12 or 13. Gene Simmons has a LP Vault collection, sale price: 2,000 buckaroos...and if you buy the vault--he will fly to your state and personally deliver that mutherfucker...pretty awesome, fan or not.

Are we old for remembering KISS songs when they were first played? ;-)

Nah, the personal visit/delivery is an additional $50K.

If it were only $2K, he'd be in the air every fucking day... :biggrin:
