On this day in KISSTORY - June 24, 1976 - KISS' legendary New York City photo shoot with photographer Barry Levine took place. Photos were taken on streets throughout the city, and in stops at Central Park and the Empire State Building, where one of KISS' most iconic photos ever was taken.
Paul & Gene comments on the Empire State Building shoot:
Paul: We were all scared shitless. You could see one arm and one hand of each guy and the other hand was holding on for dear life. It's pretty awesome to be up there and look and see three states. We climbed the ladder in those boots. It was a pretty interesting time.
Gene: We were nuts! We would do anything you would imagine. Let's go on top of the Empire State Building and hang over the side for a photo. That'll look cool. Let's go!
