. . . but not the “Love Gun”
One day last week, I was reading an article about the 16th, final KISS tour. (OK, 16th is a slight exaggeration, but not by much).
They had a good run, but all the lawsuits, drama, books and merchandise were just a bit much. They could have stopped with Destroyer and Alive and called it a good day. They’ve been saying “This will be our final tour” since the mid-1990’s.
Twenty studio albums, eight live albums, thirteen compilations and eight boxed sets later, they are lip-syncing most of their final concerts and have squeezed as much cash as they could out of their fans.
Anyone still have a KISS lunchbox or KISS condoms?
All this to admit an error in judgment.
Being in a KISS state of mind, I added the original KISS record, which is a damn good album, which BTW was released 45 years ago today/tomorrow, February 18, 1974. This is also a good reason why they should stop. 45 years is long enough.
After seeing some of the other submissions, I realized that I clicked before I thought, which is an entire chapter of “Welcome to My Life”
There are so many better albums on the list started by Kurt and added to by his readers.
I also recall creating a post on the old blog back in 2014 that listed my “My Top Twenty” Some of those wouldn’t be on the list if I created it today, but that was then and this is now.
I’m sure that Kurt wouldn’t mind if you added your favorite to his list, here: Perfect.
