Shock Me

On the band’s sixth studio album, Love Gun, Ace Frehley finally cut his first lead vocal. He’d written Shock Me after being electrocuted on stage, and sang it in the nonchalant manner of Keith Richards. He was one cool motherfucker.

Love Gun

Paul Stanley – who as well as singing it also played bass on Love Gun – once described this loaded ’n’ lascivious track as “quintessential Kiss and probably one of the five essential signature songs”. But is he talking about a Glock, or his cock? Discuss.

Firehouse

This song was preceded by Hotter Than Hell at live gigs, and sung by Paul Stanley while sporting a Kiss logo-embossed fireman’s helmet. One of Kiss’s earliest songs, it was written by Stanley after hearing The Move’s Fire Brigade.



19

Goin’ Blind

Only Simmons would sing a love song as creepy as Goin’ Blind, in which a 93-year-old man lusts after a girl of 16. Written in 1970 – as Little Lady – for pre‑Kiss group Wicked Lester, it was recorded by Kiss in 1974.

The 40 greatest KISS songs ever – as voted for by you! (Pt.2 30-21)

You wanted the best… you got the best. We asked you to vote for your all-time favorite KISS songs – and you did so in your thousands.

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 second part of our KISS kountdown.

I Want You

Paul Stanley: “I wrote I Want You at a soundcheck on stage in England. There was something about being on some of those stages that just felt so magical because my heroes all played on them, and you kind of summon the spirits to enter your body.”



29

Calling Dr Love

This Gene Simmons jewel from Rock And Roll Over found its inspiration in an unlikely place: the legendary comedy trio the Three Stooges. The infectious ‘calling doctor…’ chorus was cribbed from dialogue pulled straight from Calling All Curs, a 1939 episode of their TV show.

40

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.



39

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.

2014 ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES CELEBRATE 40 YEARS OF ROCK AND ROLL, LIMITED RELEASE OF ORIGINAL KISS VINYL ALBUMS, ‘KISS 40’ COMPILATION AND THE ULTIMATE: ‘KISSTERIA – THE ULTIMATE VINYL ROAD CASE’ BOX SET


This year marks the 40th Anniversary of rock and roll giants KISS and in true KISS fashion, the band plan to make 2014 the biggest and loudest, non-stop rock and roll party of the century.

Rock legends KISS were the first signing to Neil Bogart’s newly formed Casablanca Records label after he saw and recognized their talent and showmanship during their spectacular performance at a showcase concert at New York City’s Le Tang’s Ballet Studio in 1973, offering them a contract on the spot. Four decades after releasing their self-titled, major label debut, KISS will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April, proof of the unparalleled devotion and loyalty of the KISS Army to the “Hottest Band in the World” as they rallied together to have the band included in this year’s induction ceremony.

Having earned 28 U.S. gold albums along with 40 million U.S. and 100 million in world sales, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, with longtime members guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer, are stronger than ever with a legacy that continues to grow, generation after generation. Their last album, Monster, proved that they are still at the top of their game with impressive sales and topping the charts worldwide debuting at No. 3 in the U.S. on the Billboard 200 best-selling albums chart and Top 10 in twenty other countries.

To celebrate their incredible 40-year recording career and their upcoming, long-overdue induction to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) will kick off the celebration on April 1, 2014 with the first batch of 10 individual KISS remastered albums on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl with 18 more vinyl titles coming through the first half of 2014. In May, fans can look forward to a 2-CD KISS 40 compilation with one track from every major album release, live selections and an unreleased demo from 1977. And finally, starting today, the definitive KISS vinyl box set, KISSTERIA – The Ultimate Vinyl Road Case, featuring 34 KISS LPs - including titles never-before issued on vinyl, six exclusive albums to the box set and a plethora of collectibles only available in KISSTERIA will be available exclusively for D2C pre-order at Go to www.kissteria.kissonline.com.

Millions of people around the world originally discovered KISS when they brought home an album and put it on their turntable for the first time. Now, those original KISS albums will be available remastered and on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl prior to KISS’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

A new compilation KISS 40, a 2 CD set featuring forty tracks spanning KISS’s incredible forty-year recording career. This set includes one track from every major album release (studio, Alive & hits collections) plus three live selections from the 2000-era and features the band’s biggest songs including rock and roll anthems such as “Detroit Rock City,” “Love Gun,” “Beth,” “Rock And Roll All Nite,” “Beth,” “Psycho Circus,” “Forever,” “I Was Made For Lovin’ You.” “Lick It Up,” “Heaven’s On Fire” and “Hell or Hallelujah.” First time commercial CD release live recordings of “Deuce” (from 2004 tour), “Cold Gin” (from 2009 Alive 35 tour), “Crazy Crazy Nights” (from 2010 Sonic Boom Over Europe tour) and the previously unreleased 1977 demo of “Reputation” round out the set for the KISS Army.
