hahaha Tighten up Hairy....We're on a mission!

Whoa, I just read a interview with Ace on Blabbermouth.net and he's
not happy about Gene touring with 50% of KISS this year and having a
poser play in Ace makeup...

He makes a good point though. He compares KISS to "a prizefighter
coming out of retirement that should have rolled up the towel."

Nice. :roll: :lol:

It's really crazy how Gene.............ahem........."Whores Kiss" like he does, but can you blame him?

He was born and lived in poverty and war in Israel. He came to america as a pre teen and learned his english from watching "American Television"......and, and, and...... :-D


He is the "Rags to Riches" story of a lifetime. So what if he had the phrase "OJ" for orange juice Copywritten so he get's royalties for every time someone OJ.


I call it what it is.....................BUSINESS!

Oh no doubt Hairybro. I'm all about ANYBODY coming here and making a
honest dollar.

Not knocking it one bit. It's part of the American dream.

I just feel like it should be 100% KISS, 100% of the time if they're all still
drawing a breath. Anything less is just, like you said....business.

It's said that they only did four or five U.S. dates on this tour too...

That was definitely a BUSINESS decision, 'cuz I don't think we're gonna
buy it here.

Europe's tour dates drew SERIOUS COIN from what I read though.

Good for them! I'm down with that. :headbang:

I wish they were still the original 4 of them. It was best like that.



Oh well. I saw them with Eric Carr (rip) and in the 1st reunion go around, I am happy with that. Still, if it wasn't for KISS, I would prolly be a jazz trumpet player.

TESTIFY Bro. I never saw shows with replacemants.

If I'm not mistaken, a GUITAR TECH is doing Ace's parts on this tour!

If they can pull that off, more power to 'em, yaknow?

No not a tech........Tommy Thayer is Aces Replacement. Eric Singer is Peters replacement. I have met Eric Singer, he is totally cool.

What Myg doesn't realize is that KISS, as much a poser band as they are, helped make it popular for a lot of the bands he likes.

Right! Thanks for clearing that up Bro. No disrespect directed to Tommy
at all.... Except for stealing Ace's makeup!

HE DIDN'T EARN IT! :x :lol:


Who did Singer play with before this gig? That name's familiar...

Singer used to be a hired stick man. Lita Ford and Alice Cooper, Badlansd too I think.

I met him right after KISS decided to do reunion tour 1. He was in town with Alice. What a great show. He and a few others went to the nudie bar my brother used to work with so he got tickets, and sneekily arranged the meeting with Eric. I was having a cocktail and I hear my brother walk up behind me saying......"Eric, this is my brother Leon, he is a drummer here in town in a cover band....."

I almost crapped myself it was so cool. :D

That's a tre' cool encounter Bro!

That's how I felt at 17 meeting Alex and Char in Barbados.

(We were the only white people on the street. That made it a little easier
for my autograph ambush.) HAHAHA

There was no escape. They were easy marks. LOL

Matter of fact, he and Char both had the curly-perm-action goin' on at the
time . . .

Actually, they were really nice to me, seeing I was a young kid in a sailor
suit a long way from home. He gladly signed all my Barbados swag and
put "to" - whomever I asked him to - on it.

That was a "never forget" moment. No chance in Hell Alex remembers it,
but it doesn't matter.

He said Neil and Ged were in Jamaica at that same moment, so I thought
that was just cool as shit.

I can imagine the combustibles they must have went through! :headbang:
