On this day in KISSTORY - September 30, 1984 - KISS opened their Animalize Tour in Brighton, England with Bruce Kulick on lead guitar. Kulick, who was filling in for the ill Mark St. John, became an official member of the band on December 8, 1984.
Here is a clip of KISS performing " Black Diamond" at Cobo Hall during the US leg of the Animalize Tour.

Homecoming is here, and while Cadillac isn't fixated on KISS like it was last year during the 40th anniversary of the rock band's visit to the city, the event is still on many people's minds.
In fact, some people are now cashing in on the phenomenon.
A 1976 edition of the Cadillac High School yearbook recently sold on eBay for $1,028. The yearbook highlights the band's visit heavily in its pages.
Jim Neff, assistant coach of the football team when the band came to town in 1975, said he checks eBay periodically to see if anyone has one of these books for sale.
"These yearbooks have gone for varying amounts in the past," Neff said. "I've seen people buy them for $500 to $600 but ($1,028) is the most I've ever seen one go for."
We're so excited to announce our very own Jets gear!
