ROSS HALFIN ON
January 21, 2007
Photographer Ross Halfin on KISS: The first time I shot them was in Chicago 1979 on the "Dynasty" tour. I took quite a famous picture of the drum kit high up with Paul Stanley underneath. The tour manager wanted to give us wanker passes for the show which obviously didn't work. I shot the show from the audience. I shot them again the next year at Stafford Bingley Hall. KISS' big comeback tour to England. Also in Europe where Iron Maiden supported them...shot them quite a lot after that in the 80s: Texas, on the "Creature of the Night" tour with Vinnie Vincent and on probably every tour after that. Paul and Gene are always very nice. apart from Gene's predilection for talking to me in a really bad Dick Van Dyke cockney accent.
