SIGHTING: FAMILY GUY AT KMART
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS,

Today, as I was walking through K Mart, I ran into these cool boxers which feature the characters from Family Guy wearing KISS face paint! On the front, it has Peter Griffin in the Demon face paint, and Stewie Griffin in the Starchild's face paint. And on the back it has Brian the dog in the Spaceman face paint, and Louis Griffin in the Catman face paint. I couldn't help but buy a pair myself

Sincerely,
Nick DeCastro

EARLY DAYS IN THE LOFT
GeneSimmons.com
The time – 1973. The two guys in the photo – Gene Simmons and Peter Criss, at our roach infested loft on 10 E. 23rd St., in New York City.
We were a trio at this point. We had yet to find a lead guitar player.
Early days. Big dreams.

‘Love Gun,’ the sixth studio album from Kiss, and the clear pinnacle of the band’s first golden era, was released 36 years ago this week.

The album’s release marked a pair of turning points for the band. It was the last record to feature their original lineup — Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley — performing together on every song.

(In 1998, the foursome released a reunion album entitled ‘Psycho Circus,’ but it is widely reported that outside musicians joined Stanley and Simmons for much of that project.)

‘Love Gun’ was also released at the high-point of the band’s commercial success. Kiss were without question the hottest band in the land at the time, with arena shows selling out across the country and mountains of records and merchandise flying off store shelves.

Seeing as how ‘Love Gun’ was their fifth studio LP in just three years — not to mention the near-constant touring the group had been doing since 1973 — it’s hard to say they didn’t work hard to earn that position.

By 1977, they were ready to reap the rewards. As Stanley explains in the band’s official biography ‘Behind the Mask,’ “I had fun making ‘Love Gun’ because I was feeling my oats. I had a very clear vision of what I wanted to do and in some ways what Kiss was going to do… I’d give that four and a half, five stars. I’m proud of the record.”
