Yes they may be old and yes they have replacement musicians that dress up as the original characters but who can say that they`re in their 60`s (for Gene-who`s 62 and Paul-who`s 59) and they`re still selling out big arenas and garnering half a million smack a roonies every tour. What makes me appreciate them is the fact that their songs have helped me go through tough things in life. I`m sure everyone has a band like that, but I wanted to show my appreciation to the Hottest Band in the World!

Nick Simmons actually appeared in former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick`s solo album in 2010, Paul`s oldest son plays the guitar but I have no clue if he`ll play in a band, and as for Paul`s other kids they`re abit young to play (one`s 5, the other`s 2 and the last one is a month old)

I was a bit older when I dressed up as Paul, about 10/11, it wasn't Halloween though. Now I think I won't do it, and just in case, I'll choose Gene.

Not my fav band, but since it is appreciation thread.

IRATE TRUCK OWNER CHASES DOWN THEFT SUSPECT, RECOVERS KISS TAPE

By Julie Manganis

A Salem man who may have planned to "rock and roll all night and party every day" instead settled in at the Salem police lockup Wednesday night, charged with breaking into a pickup truck and stealing several items, including a Kiss tape.

It was the truck's irate owner, Matthew Jenkins, 24, who chased suspect Raymond Garland, 40, from Pond Street to the intersection of Washington and Lafayette streets, then grabbed him and flagged down a passing police car early Wednesday evening.

Jenkins told police he was inside his house and heard the door to his 1993 Chevy pickup closing. He ran out to the truck and immediately noticed it had been gone through, the glove box left open. Then he noticed a man with a trash bag pedaling away on a bike, Patrolman Deni Gaito said in his report.

Jenkins, carrying a small baseball bat, was holding onto Garland as Gaito and fellow Patrolman Rafael Gonzales passed by. Jenkins waved down the officers.

The officers did a pat-frisk of Garland, turning up a knife and a cassette tape.

Jenkins, who at that point was waiting a few feet away, saw the cassette and called out, "Is that a Kiss tape?"

The officers confirmed that it was and, after learning that it had also been in the truck, arrested Garland, of 298 Washington St., Salem.

They also found a number of tile-cutting tools that belong to Jenkins' father in the trash bag, as well as a small air compressor.

Garland said the compressor was a gift from a girlfriend, and he was on his way to a store to return it — a story that police found suspicious.

Jenkins said another item, a Duralast battery that had been in his truck, was found on the ground next to his house.

Garland pleaded not guilty yesterday at his arraignment in Salem District Court to charges of breaking and entering to a motor vehicle, felony larceny, and violating the city's knife ordinance.

Judge Michael Lauranzano ordered Garland held on $2,500 cash bail.

He's due back in court on Oct. 6.

There you have it folks, don't fuck with the KISS Army!

God no! The other members were partying like there was no tomorrow, Gene said screw drugs and went straight to sex and rock & roll! Apparently during the photography session with the band for their cover of their second 1974 album Hotter Than Hell, you can see Paul Stanley hold Peter Criss that's how bad they were wasted. This is what wikipedia says from this:

Photography session
The album is also known for its striking cover: the front featured Japanese manga-influenced artwork, and the back cover showed individual band shots taken by Norman Seeff at a wild party, and a composite of all four band members' makeup designs. Everyone present at the session (with the exception of Simmons) was drunk for the entire photography session.[citation needed] Stanley was so drunk he had to be locked in his car.

The Japanese character on the bottom of the album cover (力) is chikara, which means "power". It would later be used on various forms of Kiss material during the 1970s and 1980s, most prominently on Eric Carr's drum kit.

The Japanese on the top-right corner of the album cover (地獄 の さけび) is jigoku no sakebi, which means "Hell's shout" or "The shout of hell".

Frehley's image on the front cover is actually airbrushed, as a side of his face was injured in a car accident and was without makeup on the afflicted area at the time of the photo shoot. Also, the Japanese characters used for Ace's name pronounces it wrong. The characters are エイス フューリ (eisu fyuuri), which would translate to "Ace Fury". The characters should have been エースフレーリム(esu fureri).

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e2/Cover_hth_large.jpg

Around 1979, Ace (the guitarist) and Peter (the drummer) were in tension with Gene and Paul, one of them battling major alcohol issues while the other was battling drug issues. Peter was the first to leave at the end of 1979 (not even playing in their album prior to his departure and was still credited). Ace left in 1982 (after not playing for several albums). The original band reunited in 1996 in full makeup. By 1998, the band's creative differences came into play ommitting Ace and Peter from playing on the album and hiring un-credited session musicians (despite having them sing a song as a band and one individual song, they were still fully credited). By 2000, the band started to crumble once again. Criss left in 2000 after tensions arose again regarding monetary and contract issues (he showed his dissapointment by destroying his kit onstage). After the farewell tour in ended in late 2001, the band took a break and decided not to retire, but instead decided that the farewell tour was from the original members, Ace left in 2002 and was replaced by current guitarist Tommy Thayer. Peter came back in 2003 to drum for a short time before leaving for good in 2004. Since then, on again, off again drummer Eric Singer has assumed the spot (1991-1996; 2001-2002; 2004-present). Ace Frehley has been sober from alcoholism since 2006, and has been touring successfully in a solo band. Peter Criss has been low-key these past few years, only making sporadic appearances because of his breast cancer and successful treatment. And Gene and Paul have continued to rock KISS and are working on releasing another album for January 2012.

EDIT: You can clearly see the tensions within the band here (mind you Ace Frehley was wasted):

Hiatus (1994–1998)
Interviews with Guns N' Roses band members suggest that between 1994 and 1996, the band sporadically began to write and record new material, most of which, according to Slash, had been written by Rose. Rose has stated the exact opposite in the open letter on the official Guns N' Roses website, that the album was mostly a "Slash album" and Rose was allowed very little input into the album. At the time, the band had intended to release a single album with 10 or 12 songs.

Regarding the dysfunction of the band's recording at that time, Rose is quoted as saying, "We still needed the collaboration of the band as a whole to write the best songs. Since none of that happened, that's the reason why that material got scrapped."

In December 1994, Guns N' Roses released a cover recording of the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil". The song appeared in the film Interview with the Vampire, on the movie's soundtrack and was also released separately as a single. It is the final Guns N' Roses single to feature Slash on lead guitar, Duff McKagan on bass, and Matt Sorum on the drums. It also featured Paul Huge on rhythm guitar, whose presence on the track and in the band created great tension between Rose and Slash, as Slash disliked Huge and felt he had no place nor the 'chops' to fit in G N' R.

The recording of "Sympathy for the Devil", as well as tension between him and Rose, led Slash to quit the band officially in October 1996. He was replaced by Nine Inch Nails touring guitarist Robin Finck in January 1997, who signed a two-year contract with the band in August 1997, making him an official member. Slash's departure was followed shortly thereafter by Matt Sorum, who was fired in April 1997 and then by bassist Duff McKagan, who resigned from the band in August 1997. As such, all of the members who had taken part in the recording of Appetite for Destruction (aside from Rose) had departed from the band. Multiple views have been presented on the departures by various band members (current and former). 1994 was the last year Rose held a press conference or performed until 2001 with his new cast. Rose's only performance in 1994 was a duet with Bruce Springsteen on a cover of The Beatles song "Come Together". An actual break-up of Guns N' Roses never occurred, as new players were brought in as the old ones left.

McKagan was the last of the Appetite lineup to leave, resigning as bassist in August 1997, being replaced later that year by Tommy Stinson (formerly of The Replacements.) Sorum was replaced by Chris Vrenna for a short time in April to May 1997, followed briefly by Pod, and finally by Josh Freese in the summer of 1997. By the end of 1998, a new version of Guns N' Roses had emerged: many musicians have come and gone from the new band, but the core group has included Rose, Stinson, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and multi-instrumentalist Chris Pitman.

i think for a long time he hid the fact that he was actually from anothe country. He probably was ashamed of his father and scared to dmit that his mother was a Holocaust survivor (although he hates to mention it)
It's funny how he beat around the bush in his first interview

Peter added a teardrop under his right eye (as you can see on picture 16, with a close-up of the tear on 17). Fans disagreed over the meaning of the tear, some thinking it signaled that the Catman were sad the tour (and KISS) was at an end, while other figured it signaled that Peter was sad that the band couldn't get to an agreement about the final part of the tour, a rumor that was going around at the time. This was only speculation, though... as usual KISS were tightlipped about what really went on behind the scenes!!

Eric Singer

http://www.kissfanshop.de/PeterCriss/make-upEricSinger.jpg
http://www.kissarmysweden.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/eric_hd.jpg
The second Catman first came along when KISS and Peter couldn't reach an agreement about the last part of the Farewell tour in Japan and Australia. If rumors are correct, Peter was unhappy that he had been offered less money than Ace to do the tour and bowed out!
KISS then hired their old drummer Eric Singer to come in and play the drums for that part of the tour. The decision were met with rather unhappy responses from the fans, not so much because of Eric, but more the fact that poor Eric had to wear the Catman make-up/costume, instead of something original! But it seems the decision had something to do with the contracts signed with the promoters... something about KISS has to deliver a show with the four original characters!!
Picture A was the first published picture of Eric in the Catman get-up, which also were met with tons of hateful responses on the internet!
Picture B (in the middle) is Eric in full costume at the first show in Yokohama, Japan, March 9th 2001. As you can see, the costume is identical with Peter's... Eric is also wearing the platform boots, but probably only because he's taking a bow for the audience. I doubt he also played with them!! Two other things you'll notice on this picture is that Eric is wearing a sweat band around each wrist, and that Eric's tattoos has mysteriously disappeared!!! This confused a lot of fans... did Eric have them removed for the tour??? Not so... when Eric toured with Alice Cooper in Europe in May 2001, the tattoos were back where they had always been! They had simply been covered with skin toned tape for the KISS shows! WHY? Well, that is a very good question!!!
Picture C is not actually a photo, but a photomontage by talented artist Mike Rutherford, which shows what could have been: Eric Singer as The Hawk! The Hawk had originally been designed for Eric Carr in 1980, before The Fox came to be... but the original design were clumsy looking, and Eric Carr were extremely unhappy with it! Eric Singer had joked several times, that he would be The Hawk because of his nose, and Mike Rutherford's artwork really shows how this could have been done... it certainly looks far better than Eric as the Catman in my opinion... but what do I know??
The last picture is what Eric Singer looks like today still wearing the Catman makeup

Eric Carr

http://www.kissfanshop.de/EricCarr/hawk80.jpg
Eric Carr joined in June 1980, and the first job was to find an image for him. At first they came up with The Hawk. Picture A is the original sketch of the make-up (probably by Paul Stanley), while picture B and C are the only known photos of the make-up. Sadly picture B is in black-and-white, while a color version can be seen in the "KISS My Ass" home video!
Picture C shows a slightly different variation of the make-up in full color. You'll have to look carefully to see the differences, but Eric has painted his nose like a beak and those tailfins down his chins are placed differently.
Picture C shows the prototype of the Hawk costume. It would have made Eric look somewhat like a certain character from Sesame Street. KISS: The Demon, The Starchild, The Spaceman, and... Big Bird? I don't think so!!
Thank God this never happened... Eric would have looked ridiculous.

http://www.kissfanshop.de/EricCarr/make-upEric.jpg
According to the legend Eric came up with The Fox in the last minute (to avoid being called Big Bird, presumably). Picture E and F shows two variations of the original make-up in close-up, which was only used for one show (the New York Palladium show in June 1980). Picture E is one of the earliest photos, which shows all details of the make-up. Picture F is almost the same make-up, this time in color. The only difference between the two is the way he painted the mouth (as far as I can see).
As you can see Eric had painted an area around each eye brown, and the tip of the nose were painted gold. The entire mask was outlined with silver.
By the time KISS arrived in Europe for their tour, in late August, the make-up had changed to the one seen in picture G. The silver outline was gone, and so was the golden nose tip. Instead the area around the nostrils were painted silver, and a large white area had appeared on the brink of the nose. Many of the photos in the tour book for that tour, was of Eric with the original version of the make-up, and had to be retouched to bring them "up-to-date"!
Another small change came in late 1982, when Eric dropped the little sneer at the edges of the mouth (picture H). This was just for a while though, as some picture with Vinnie had Eric in the "sneer" make-up!
It's difficult to find pictures that shows the full make-up, because of Eric's enormous hair do!

Vinnie vincent
http://www.kissfanshop.de/VinnieVincent/make-upVinnie.jpg
Vinnie's make-up was designed by Paul Stanley, and continued the mystic theme of the costume. It was a golden ankh (an ancient Egyptian cross) across Vinnie's forehead, and down the bridge of his nose. Black make-up around the eyes, and black lipstick completed the most short-lived make-up in the history of KISS (aside from Eric's Hawk and Paul's Bandit make-up, that is). In Kiss the last time he wore the make-up was at the Brazilian shows in 1983. He did put back on the make-up for 2 unofficial Kiss-Expos in March 1996 in Atlanta, GA (USA) and Stockholm, Sweden (see B/W-picture from Stockholm of him with a Tribute band on stage). As soon as Kiss found out, their lawyers stopped him to appear in make-up immediately.
