Roy Hilmar Svendsen of Norway's NRK reports that KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons has confirmed what has been some fans' biggest fear for some years now ? that KISS are indeed planning to keep KISS running and touring after founders Paul Stanley and Simmons decide to take off the make-up for good.

During a familiar rant by Simmons about how KISS could go on forever, Svendsen asked jokingly if the band would consider looking for replacements for Simmons and Stanley in a TV show, similar to programs like "Rock Star" and "American Idol".

"We have already signed the contract, and it is going to go through in a couple of months," Simmons reportedly replied.

Really?

"Yes, of course!" he confirmed.

In a separate interview, KISS co-founder Paul Stanley was reportedly not very happy to hear about his bandmate's statement regarding KISS' future.

"These things are typical," Stanley said. "Gene says something as if it was a fact, but there is no signed deal. The future has many possibilities. Will it happen next week? No! Am I opposed to the idea? Of course not."

According to NRK, Stanley said that the members of VELVET REVOLVER were planning a similar stunt to find the replacement for lead singer Scott Weiland, who was fired at the end of the band's European tour earlier this year. However, in the end the band decided not to do it, according to Stanley, because of VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash's wish to remain "cool" and credible to his fans.

"I don't have to be that cool," Stanley told NRK with a smile.

Here's a vid of when I loved Kiss. They performed on The Mike Douglass Show in 1974. Gene was interviewed prior to the performance

A few years back I saw Rick Wakeman say that he believed there'd be YES long after he was dead and buried...

Why not KISS?

Well with as much as I love the band Kiss, I think it boils down to this, in regards to Elf's last post.


There is a HUGE difference between marketing genius, and musical genius.

Gene is a song writer first, bass player last. Just like Nikki Sixx. That can't be taken away from either of them.

I have seen them with and without the make-up. Great live show.

My first concert (Alzheimers makes me repeat myself) was Kiss in '76. Freaking MAGIC to a 15 year old. 5th row, bombs, costumes, fire, loud hard rock and my first waft of weed smoke. Now THAT was Kiss.

Still, in the future, there may be some kind of re-born magic for a new generation. Maybe the musicians will actually be very talented, kinda like a musical evolution.

So shoot me. I'm actually trying to look at the bright side for a change

I see yer point.

But it just kills me to see Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer in Peter and Ace's makeup. And yes, they bury both as musicians.
