Kamala's KISS Korner

I'm 99% sure Gene Simmons wanted KISS to play Trump's inauguration concert but Paul Stanley (and probably Shannon Tweed) convinced him not to.

Listening to a few weeks old episode of Talk is Jericho and Jericho's non makeup era KISS tribute got Bruce Kulick on a track. :cool:

tbh Bruce Kulick should just be a regular member of Jericho's non makeup era KISS tribute band but I can see how it'd be awkward since Bruce Kulick was actually in non makeup era KISS.

I didn’t have Bryan Cranston joyfully jamming out on the hand drums to Baby Starchild singing a Maroon 5 cover on my 2021 Bingo card.

First thought is “man, what second tier American Idol knockoff house band did they get douchey drummer from?”

Second thought is “WAITAMINUTE that douchey looking drummer is Eric Singer!” Tbf that is probably acceptable outfit for drummer for Paul Stanley’s old Jewish guy R&B vanity project.

Also LMAO at Starchild trying to dance like James Brown.


I LOVE Paul Stanley and I LOVE ‘70s R&B but I never ever asked to hear Paul Stanley sing ‘70s R&B.

Peter Criss must be pissed that Starchild got to record an R&B oldies cover album before he did.

I never knew Mark St. John and Bruce Kulick played a few concerts as co lead guitarists on the Animalize tour. Interesting slice of KISStory.

of course, I cannot think of Mark St. John without thinking of Peter Criss offhandedly accusing him of being a pedophile in his autobiography. Oof.
 
Man I looked it up, Peter deserves a lot more respect because people always shit on his cred when it came to stuff like this:


I always thought it was a random accusation from Peter and never looked into it. These posts make it sound like it was common knowledge and that’s why he got kicked out of Kiss. Banned from clubs in the 80s for it. Could be hearsay but looking at his wiki, guys don’t get beat to death in prison for stealing crackers...

Didn’t mean to dismiss them as untrue. Just the way I remember it being brought up in the book was done a jarringly offhand way from what I remember. He was railing on him for being a drugged out filthy slob for a few paragraphs then he was like “and one day I found a bunch of German kids porn on his coffee table. Really sick stuff.” Then moved onto another topic.
