I'm actually going to see the final concert on the Gold Coast(although nothing's permanent with this band) but I have to say these guys are so overrated it's almost comical. I've seen them a few times live and most recently on cable from a recent "farewell tour" show and they were awful. The sound was almost inaudible, the vocals of Stanley very ordinary and the rythm section about as pedestrian as you can get. Yet the crowd lapped it up(many KISS fans though listen to nothing else but KISS so go figure) which begs the question why are great bands like NIGHT RANGER, CHEAP TRICK etc playing to much smaller audiences whilst in my opinion being much more seminal to the development of modern rock?
I actually welcome Peter Criss's exit as Eric Singer is a far superior drummer and dare I say it less "chemically challenged"!
KISS have become a very money hungry anachronism - they should see the current DEEP PURPLE tour to see "mature artists" still being eminently worthy and vibrant and exhibiting the energy of a band just formed!
Any comments( oh and no death threats from the KISS army)! Cheers.KAOS FAN!
