THIS DAY IN KISSTORY 1973
On this day in KISSTORY - August 10, 1973, KISS auditions for their soon to be manager Bill Aucoin at the Crystal Ball Room of the Hotel Diplomat in New York City.
Bill Aucoin: When I first saw KISS at the Hotel Diplomat in 1973 they didn't have much of a show. They had the red beacons, a couple of amps. They were wearing black jeans. No one could afford leather. The show was just a regular rock 'n' roll show except they had spontaneity. They wanted to do something different and they wanted it very badly. That kind of devotion is worth more than anything. It's so special and you start picking up on it. I saw that magic in them.
