To celebrate the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame finally recognizing KISS, as well as the 40th anniversary of the band’s first album, here’s the first part of our KISS kountdown.

Words: Geoff Barton, Paul Elliott, Ken Sharp

War Machine

One of the heaviest tracks Kiss have recorded was, surprisingly, co-written by Gene Simmons, Bryan Adams and Adams’s writing partner Jim Vallance. Also surprising is the fact that Simmons came up with the bones of the song while tinkering on a cheap miniature synthesiser. Bombastic, powerful and badass, The Demon’s foreboding vocals on War Machine are full of scowling menace.

Tomorrow

Paul Stanley has dismissed 1980’s Unmasked as “a pretty crappy album”, but there is one track on the record that he still loves. “Tomorrow is a really great song,” he says. He’s right – it’s a pop-rock classic, and the hit that never was.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame continues to attempt to restore its questionable credibility and glimpses behind the facade with nonsense and half truths.

The truth is Joel Peresman and the rest of the decision makers refused to consider the induction of ANY former KISS members and specifically the late Eric Carr and Bruce Kulick who were both in the band through multi platinum albums and worldwide tours and DIDN'T wear makeup.

There is no getting around the reality that the Hall of Fame's favoritism and preferential treatment towards artists they like goes as far as ASKING the Grateful Dead how many members THEY wanted the hall to induct and following their directive while also including a songwriter who was never in the actual band.

Let's just accept the truth as it is and move on.

- Paul Stanley


Billboard Article:

With the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony looming closer, neither Kiss nor the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation seem ready to relax the entrenched positions that led to the group's decision not to perform April 10 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Kiss, according to frontman Paul Stanley, is upset that the Rock Hall plans to induct only the group's founding lineup and tells Billboard that discussions about subsequent members "was shut down as a non-starter."

CELEBRATES 40TH WITH REISSUE BONANZA
By Edna Gundersen

How does a band celebrate the 40th anniversary of its recording career? With more recordings.

Kiss, which released its self-titled debut and Hotter Than Hell in 1974, will kick off a year of anniversary festivities with the April 1 arrival of 10 remastered Kiss albums on vinyl. Another 18 titles will be unleashed by mid-2014.

In May, the band delivers the two-CD Kiss 40 compilation containing one track from every major album, plus live cuts and an unreleased demo from 1977. The set includes such Kiss classics as Detroit Rock City, Love Gun, Beth, Rock And Roll All Nite, Psycho Circus, I Was Made For Lovin' You and Lick It Up.

And today, the foursome serves up Kissteria — The Ultimate Vinyl Road Case, a vinyl box set holding 34 Kiss LPs including titles never previously issued on vinyl. The limited-edition mother lode of Kiss music boasts 19 studio albums, all five Alive releases, the four original Kiss solo albums and six exclusive vinyl discs that will not be sold individually. Among the extras are 11 posters (including the band's first promo poster), a Kiss vinyl cleaning cloth, a Kiss turntable mat, Kiss dominos and four band lithographs. The box can be pre-ordered here. Visit KissOnline.com for details on all things Kiss.

The band will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame April 10. The group announced a tour with Def Leppard yesterday.

Kiss and Def Leppard will team up this summer for a 42-city North American tour that will "deliver good news and excitement," says Kiss guitarist Paul Stanley.

The tour begins June 23 in West Valley City, Utah, and wraps up Aug. 31 in Woodlands, Texas. Tickets go on sale starting Friday.

The groups announced the tour Monday at the House of Blues in Los Angeles.The press conference was streamed live via the Live Nation website.

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott says he and Gene Simmons first discussed the idea of the two bands touring together when he and the Kiss bassist played some South American dates two years ago as part of a rock-and-roll all-stars tour. "It's finally happened, which is fantastic," Elliott says.

It'll be the first time the two bands have shared a bill, though Stanley says, "We've run into each other at festivals. It just seemed to be a natural fit." Stanley also noted that one of guitarist Phil Collen's pre-Def Leppard bands, Girl, opened for Kiss in the U.K. during the early '80s.

LA WINS FIRST GAME IN FRANCHISE HISTORY

LA KISS WIN INAUGURAL GAME, DEFEAT SAN ANTONIO TALONS 41-38

LOS ANGELES (March 15, 2014) – The LA KISS opened up their inaugural 2014 season on the road last night with a thrilling last minute 41-38 victory over the San Antonio Talons at the Alamodome.

The KISS were led by middle linebackerBeau Bell, who turned in an excellent performance with 5 tackles and 3 sacks.

After the first half the game was tied 14-14. Los Angeles took the lead in the second half with quarterback, J.J. Raterink’s sideline pass completed to Markee White for 6 yards for a first down, touchdown LA. But the KISS were still in for a second half battle when San Antonio took the lead late in the game making it 38-35.

The battle continued as Los Angeles kicker, Kenny Spencer’s field goal attempt was good making it 38-38 with just 43 seconds left on the clock. A big sack from Bell put the Talons at a loss of 6 yards and a missed field goal from San Antonio left just 5 seconds in play. After a completed pass to Markee White, Spencer’s 35-yard field goal secured the LA win in the final seconds of the game.

“We played like a first year team last night,” says Head Coach Bob McMillen. “The players showed how much they play together as a team, everyone stepped up to the plate and did what they were supposed to do. When you have guys that believe in their teammates, you are going to have a successful team.”

LA KISS travel to Orlando to take on the Predators next Friday, March 21st at 4:30PM (PST). LA KISS single game tickets are now on sale at ticketmaster.com or the Honda Center box office. For more information visit lakissfootball.com or call 714-462-KISS.
