2014 is a landmark year for the Hottest Band in the World. KISS started the year off by being inducted into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame and announcing a tour that will take them across the United States. Not a bad way to kick off the celebration of forty years of makeup, mayhem, and magic. The group now releases a new compilation album featuring one song off of every studio, compilation, and live album. They top it off with a few commercially unreleased tracks that will get their army even more heated up and ready to party with the band in a concert venue somewhere.

The songs off of their different albums aren't always the ones you'd expect the group to choose for "KISS 40." This just shows the guys thinking outside of the box again. Known for "Deuce" off their debut album, this time we get "Nothin' to Lose." Instead of the title track, we get "Let Me Go, Rock 'N' Roll" from "Hotter than Hell." "Reason to Live" is the cut of choice from "Crazy Nights" versus the title track we got on past greatest hits collections.

I noticed quite a few softer songs were included on "KISS 40." There's plenty of room in a double disc set to commemorate the sensitive side of the band as well as the red-blooded macho one. Some good examples of this are "Shandi," "A World without Heroes," "Forever," "Beth," "Hold Me, Touch Me," "Nothing Can Keep Me from You," and "Reason to Live."

Paul Stanley of KISS is a on conference call right now with the print media. Here's what he has to say about his book, "Face the Music: A Life Exposed," and tour with Def Leppard, which stops at the First Niagara Pavilion on Aug. 24.

Changes for this tour: "I believe this is the greatest and the best stage that we’ve ever had... We call it the spider stage, because the light are in shape of a spider and legs dangle down to the floor."

Residency in Vegas?: "Time tells all."

On Def Leppard: "Always tried to have great bands on tour with us. We want to make sure people get their money’s worth. A night of great music, songs that you know, that you connect with personally. Huge catalog of hits that all mean something."

Refreshing to be back to that after drama with Rock Hall?: “[Hall of Fame] was not much more than a mosquito buzzing around my ear... no small organization with a big name can call the shots ... Hall of fame is ultimately what the people decide is in the Hall of Fame. It was an interesting divergence of what we do.”

When Woodfield, KISS and the '70s collided

By Eric Peterson

Forty years ago this week, Schaumburg's Woodfield Mall became the national epicenter of 1970s pop culture with a combined celebration of KISS and PDA (public display of affection).

The "Great Kiss Off" was both a promotion for fans to come and meet the world's most theatrical rock 'n' roll band, as well as a kissing contest that took an epic 114 hours and 1 minute to settle.


The couple that outlasted 10 others from across the nation were Louise Heath and Vinnie Toro of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where the coast-to-coast radio promotions leading up to the Schaumburg finale began.

The band KISS was there in full makeup, to meet with fans and sign autographs.

Excerpted from a review by MICK BURGESS

The critics hated them and said that they would never last. Those same critics must now be eating a ton of humble pie as KISS reach their 40th birthday still going strong with over 100 million sales behind them, a collection of gold and platinum discs only surpassed by The Beatles and The Stones and a recent, yet controversial, induction into the Rock `n` Roll Hall of Fame. Love them or hate them you simply can`t ignore them.

The burning question to kick off with however is do we really need yet another compilation from KISS bearing in mind the myriad of releases since Double Platinum in 1978? To be fair to 40, this is different to any previous compilation in that it features a song from every studio, live and previous compilation albums that they have released together with some previously unreleased live tracks and a demo from 1977.
