    I never did understand why the current scabs are wearing Ace & Peter's makeup. Vinnie Vincent & Eric Carr both had their own makeup characters, at least for a couple years before they went makeup-free for a decade & a half or so. They probably wouldn't recycle Carr's fox character since he died, but Vinnie's ankh-face thing was barely used. Seems more fitting that Tommy the Roadie wears that then being FauxAce.

    Wouldn't surprise me if Chaim becomes the manager for MiniKiss and sends them out to do future tours. Maybe he can also teach them to actually PLAY the songs??

    Yeah...sort of comical in that Singer and Thayer 15 years ago were brought in to basically extend the life of the band - the reality probably is that even if Criss hadn't left in 2003/2004, it's doubtful that even on a purely physical level he'd be with the band today just in terms of ability to get through a set, and even watching Frehley circa 1996 vs. Frehley circa 1999/2000 one can discern a lessening of...ferocity - and I'm sure not having to deal with Frehley and Criss complaining about money was a factor: Singer and Thayer were under no illusions as to why they were brought in, and they collected their paychecks. Maybe both of them got a small piece of the merchandise.

    Now, these guys/"scabs" who were in their early to mid 40s 15 years ago are getting right up there as well.

    On a personal level, I wouldn't mind just seeing Ace, Gene, Paul and Singer playing. Even if it were in a smaller venue, without makeup and all the stage effects. In point of fact, I think that's how I'd prefer seeing them. Ace got up and did some songs at a Simmons solo show not long ago, and it sounded good. I still like that 70s material: I thought the 1995 Unplugged show was just fine, and it wasn't even electrified, never mind the absence of costumes and smoke bombs. The songs still held up well. I wasn't bummed out in the least that the original KISS didn't perform at the RnRHoF, because how many more times do I need to see the original four doing it "one last time, man, for the fans!" They DID that for four years in the late 1990s. I guess for some people enough is never enough, or it's never enough, or whatever.

    The reality is that Peter Criss ain't coming back for a full tour, or even a full set. Shit, back in the day, Criss and Frehley were the ones I liked the most. Even so, Thayer and Singer gave that band a kick in the ass 15 years ago. Ace got lazy after the first couple years of the reunion. Criss eventually got too old to do it.

    Then again, much like with Van Halen, I'm not what KISS would consider a useful current fan, in that I haven't spent nickel one on the band since the KISStory DVDs came out. Maybe some of the fans who still do spend money on the group really do care if Frehley is there or not, or maybe for the bulk of them it doesn't REALLY matter. Clearly, it hasn't mattered to those over the last decade and a half who have still attended KISS concerts, at least not to the point where it was a deal-breaker.

    Actually, I think THAT reason - taking your kids to see a band you liked to get a sense of what you liked - is pretty cool, actually. And I suppose as the years go by and these bands get too old, the opportunities for doing that kind of thing are going to be less and less...unless you've recently started enjoying, say, the music of Taylor Swift...or you have become a Justin Bieber "Be-lieber/believer"...

    Yep, they're still touring sporatically. I'd say they are one of those bands worth seeing once.

    If I recall correctly, Stanley's nickname by the other three original members in the 1970s was 'He/She'...as in, is it a He or is it a She?

    Ironically, in the early version of the KISS makeup - before they had the Kabuki inspired characters and looked more like the New York Dolls - it was Gene who looked more like the "He/She"...



    Yeah, Chaim is the blonde there. And despite appearances to the contrary, that is Ace and NOT Lily Tomlin.
